COLLEGE STATION, Texas – Texas A&M senior middle blocker Lindsey Miller has been named the SEC Offensive Player of the Week after posting back-to-back outstanding performances and leading the Aggies to two five-set road victories last week, the conference office announced today.
Miller, from Katy, Texas, had consecutive season highs in kills, posting 17 in a crucial win at Tennessee and a match-high 20 kills at Ole Miss which gave her 1,000 kills for her career. She averaged 3.70 kills per set and hit a combined .530 for the week, posting only two errors in 66 swings.
Miller, who garners a weekly conference award for the first time in her career, also averaged 1.10 blocks per set, tying a season high and tying for match-high honors with seven blocks against the Lady Vols.
Miller helped the Aggies (24-5, 16-4 SEC) close out the regular season on a nine-match winning streak to win the SEC Western Division and finish second overall to Florida. Texas A&M received an at-large bid to the 2012 NCAA Volleyball Championship and will face North Carolina State in the first round, Thursday, Nov. 29 at Gregory Gym in Austin, Texas.
