COLORADO SPRINGS -- BYU outside hitter Bryn Porter earned Mountain West Conference Volleyball Player of the Week, marking her second career weekly honor.

Porter, a 5-11 senior from Camarillo, Calif., led the 20th-ranked Cougars to a 3-0 record and the tournament title, while being named Tournament MVP at the BYU Molten Classic. She led the Cougars in kills in all three matches, starting with a 10-kill performance vs. Utah State. Porter also had a career-high five total blocks, while hitting at a .348 clip vs. the Aggies.

In the tournament’s championship match vs. Missouri, Porter tallied her first double-double of the season with career-highs in kills (19) and digs (16). With BYU trailing 15-14 in the decisive fifth set, her cross-court kill sparked a 3-0 run that sealed the Cougar victory.
