LEXINGTON, Ky. – Baylor volleyball junior outside hitter Yossiana Pressley was named the Sports Imports/American Volleyball Coaches Association National Player of the Week, announced Tuesday afternoon by the AVCA.
 
Pressley becomes the fourth AVCA National Player of the Week selection in program history and first Bear to earn the honor twice in her career. She previously earned the honor in Nov. 7, 2017, during her freshman campaign.
 
The Cypress, Texas native has led the Big 12 for two straight weeks in kills per set as BU has started out the season with a 5-0 record and jumped up to a program-best No. 5 national ranking.

Pressley is currently second in the nation in kills per set (6.25) and fourth in points per set (6.78).
 
No. 5 Baylor will play at home for the first time this season as the Bears host the Hampton Inn & Suites Waco North Baylor Invitational Thursday through Saturday. BU will face Houston Thursday at 7 p.m. CT, followed by a matchup against Tennessee Saturday at 1 p.m.
