PROVO -- BYU senior outside hitter Andrew Stewart has been named Mountain Pacific Sports Federation Co-Player of the Week after totaling 43 kills in seven sets in leading the Cougars to a pair of home wins over USC. BYU is now in a fourth-place tie in the MPSF standings with Hawai'i.
Stewart's career-high 27 kills on Friday are the most by a Cougar in four sets since Mike Wall’s 30 in 2002 (vs. Pacific, 1/19/02). The senior started the night with eight kills in the first set, hitting .727 percent with no errors.
On Saturday Stewart had 16 kills in a 3-0 sweep of the Trojans, extending his double-digit kill streak to 17 straight matches.
He hit .418 for the weekend and picked up 15 digs and 10 blocks along the way.
This is Stewart's second weekly honor of the season. He was previously named AVCA National Player of the Week on March 15.
Stewart shares the weekly honor with Jonas Umlauft of Hawai'i.
