BYU volleyball: Sander wins second MPSF weekly honor of the season
BYU senior outside hitter Taylor Sander earned Mountain Pacific Sports Federation Player of the Week honors for helping the Cougars clinch the No. 1 seed for the conference tournament.
Sander contributed 50 kills, averaging 5.56 per set and hitting .500 on the weekend. The Huntington Beach, Calif., native had a season-high 27 kills and a career-high eight block assists in BYU’s nailbiter against No. 5 UC Santa Barbara. He turned around and threw down 23 kills on a .526 hit clip against No. 9 UCLA the next night.
The award is Sander’s second of the season and fifth of his career.
With the win against UCLA, the 2014 BYU squad clinched the No. 1 seed in the MPSF tournament the earliest in league history.
The Cougars are on the road for their last four regular-season matches, starting with two against Hawai’i on Friday and Saturday.
Rachel Hawks is the men's volleyball sports information director for BYU Athletic Communications.
