Nebraska senior outside hitter Kelsey Robinson was honored Tuesday by the American Volleyball Coaches Association as the Sports Imports/AVCA Division I National Player of the Week.
Robinson received the honor after leading the Huskers to wins over then-No. 8 Minnesota and No. 23 Wisconsin over the weekend, helping Nebraska remain undefeated in Big Ten Conference play. She totaled 50 kills and 29 digs on the weekend, averaging 6.3 kills per set and 3.6 digs per set, with a .417 hitting percentage.
Robinson recorded a double-double against the Badgers, with a career-high 29 kills, a team-high 22 digs and four blocks. She notched 21 kills and hit at a clip of .450 against the Gophers. Robinson also was named the Big Ten co-player of the week Monday.
The honor marks the 13th time a Nebraska player has received the AVCA Division I weekly award, with the most recent coming on Nov. 22, 2011, when Hannah Werth received the honor.
Robinson earned national player of the week honors on Oct. 11, 2011, while playing for Tennessee.
