Kansas University junior outside hitter Chelsea Albers was named Big 12 Defensive Player of the Week on Monday.
KU, 16-4 overall and 6-1 (second) in the Big 12, has earned at least one league weekly honor in all but one of the last seven weeks.
Already in the Big 12’s top-10 for blocks and points per set, Albers tied for the Big 12 lead this week with 1.71 blocks per set. The Nebraska native finished second only to senior libero Brianne Riley for the team lead with 3.14 digs per set on the week.
KU will host Iowa State at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday.
