For the second time this season, BYU opposite side hitter, Jonathan Alleman, was named the AVCA National Player of the Week. Alleman was also selected as the MPSF Player of the Week after leading BYU to wins over No. 2 Hawaii and No. 1 Pepperdine to capture the MPSF Tournament title, and the league's automatic bid to the Final Four.

The Yorba Linda, Calif., native recorded kill-dig double-doubles in wins over second-ranked Hawai'i in the semifinal (3-0) and top-ranked Pepperdine in the final (3-2). Alleman recorded 13 kills and 13 digs, while hitting at a .385 clip in the three-game sweep of the Warriors.

In BYU's stunning come-from-behind victory over top-ranked Pepperdine, Alleman recorded his second double-double in as many night, producing 22 kills and 10 digs. He hit a blistering .462 on 39 attempts, and produced three blocks.

Alleman opened and closed the 2003 season with the AVCA/Sports Imports Player of the Week honor, as he earned it for Jan. 20 as well.
