    UL Volleyball Brown Named National Player of the Week


    Louisiana libero Lindsay Brown has been named the Collegiate Volleyball Update's (CVU.com) National Player of the Week for the week of Sept. 20 through Sept. 26.

    Brown, a native of Yorba Linda, Calif., totaled 56 digs, averaging 7.00 per set last weekend, helping Louisiana reach the 2-0 mark in Sun Belt Conference play for the first time since 2001.

    In the conference opener, Brown moved to the top of the school's career digs list for the rally era with 30 digs in a 3-1 win over Troy. With the performance, Brown passed Erika Castro's (2004-07) mark of 1,589 digs to accumulate.

    On Sunday, the libero notched another strong performance with 26 digs in Louisiana's 3-1 victory over South Alabama, helping the Cajuns reach the 10-win mark for the first time since 2002.

    Through 16 matches played, Brown has a team-best 359 digs. Her average of 5.70 digs per set ranks seventh nationally, according to the NCAA statistics released on Monday, Sept. 26.

    The honor marks the third of the season for Brown. She was named the Sun Belt Conference Defensive Player of the Week for two consecutive weeks (Sept. 20 and Sept. 27). Brown becomes the first UL volleyball player to claim back-to-back conference honors since Clarice Laires achieved the feat in 2002. In addition, she becomes the first volleyball player in school history to earn a National Player of the Week accolade.

    The Ragin' Cajuns (10-6, 2-0 Sun Belt) will host McNeese State in a midweek matchup this evening. The first serve is slated for 7:00 p.m. at Earl K. Long Gym.
