Melville Named Player of the Week for Fifth Time This Season

ORLANDO, Fla. – After leading the Knights to another undefeated weekend with a pair of sweeps over both Memphis and SMU at home, McKenna Melville was named the league's Offensive Player of the Week for the fifth time this season and the 12th time in her career.

"McKenna continues on her determined tear this year to make sure our team is in the best place to achieve all of its goals," head coach Todd Dagenais said, "It's become a wonderful circle of events that when McKenna is successful, the team is successful and when the team is successful, McKenna is successful. We are just finding ways to make each individual player on the team have their moment and McKenna continues to lead the way."

The Knights extended their win streak to 11 straight as Melville recorded double-doubles in both three-set matches. She has now posted 14 double-doubles this season and 66 in her career.
Melville is also back on top as the nation's leader in points with 571 and in total kills with 504 just this season as she notched 32 kills (5.33 per set), hitting .324, while also recording her 500th season kill over the weekend. She also had 28 digs (4.67 per set) and four blocks. Melville led with 34 points (5.67 per set).
