SAN BRUNO, Calif. – The West Coast Conference has named its Volleyball Player of the Week for November 23, 2015.

Senior outside hitter Alexa Gray set another new career-high in kills as she helped No. 12 BYU women’s volleyball to a pair of wins over then-second place Santa Clara and San Francisco as well as at least a share of the West Coast Conference title. In the process, Gray became BYU’s career leader in kills during the rally score era, ending the week with 1,758 – good for eighth place on the WCC career chart. 

Against the Broncos, the reigning AVCA National Player of the Week collected 31 kills on a .464 clip to go along with nine digs for a near double-double. Then, against the Dons, Gray put down 19 kills while adding nine digs for another near double-double in just three sets. The 31 kills against Santa Clara were the third-most collected by any Cougar in the rally-scoring era, and she put up the high number in just four sets.

On the week, Gray averaged 7.36 points, 7.14 kills and 2.57 digs per set on a .424 clip – more points and kills, and with a higher hitting percentage, than last week’s spectacular outing.

Also Nominated: Savannah Blinn, Gonzaga; Nikki Lyons, Pepperdine; Sarah Sponcil, Loyola Marymount; Kimmy Whitson, Pacific
