Langs named Big 12 Defensive Player of the Week

Kansas volleyball freshman middle blocker Rachel Langs is the Big 12 Defensive Player of the Week, the league announced Monday.

Langs registered a 14-block outing at Oklahoma, which was one block shy of the Big 12 record of 15 total blocks in a five-set match. The freshman recorded 11 of her 14 blocks in a two-set span and now leads the conference in blocks (19) and blocks per set (2.11) in league play.

“Our coaching staff did a really great job of putting together a scouting report to help us prepare and gave great feedback throughout the game,” Langs said in a team release. “There was constant communication on the court and it was easy to execute the game plan at the net knowing that our defense had our backs behind the block.”

Kansas plays host to West Virginia at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday.
