UH’s Averill named player of the week

    Hawaii's Taylor Averill hits off UC Santa Barbara's Ryan Hardy in the second set of the UC Santa Barbara vs. Hawaii volleyball match at Stan Sheriff Center.

A day after winning a conference award, University of Hawaii volleyball player Taylor Averill claimed a national honor.

Averill, a 6-foot-7 middle blocker from San Jose, Calif., was named the Sports Imports/AVCA Division I-II player of the week for men’s volleyball.

Averill was instrumental in the Warriors’ two four-set victories over UC Santa Barbara the past weekend. The outcomes ended the Warriors’ seven-match losing streak to the Gauchos, and produced UH’s first series sweep between the teams since 2003.

On Friday, Averill had 15 kills and seven blocks. In Sunday’s rematch he hit .562.

The seventh-ranked Warriors have a bye this weekend.
