PROVO, Utah — Junior middle blocker Teon Taylor of the No. 9 BYU men's volleyball team was honored as the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation Defensive Player of the Week, the conference announced Monday evening.
Taylor led the Cougars in blocks with 18 through four matches against No. 14 Princeton and No. 7 UC Irvine (Jan. 22-27), averaging 1.20 blocks per set. Against UC Irvine in the first of two in that series, Taylor led all players in blocks with eight total, a new season-high. The next night, he led BYU in blocks with five.
This is the fourth career MPSF weekly award for Taylor, and first defensive honor of the 2024 season for BYU. Junior outside hitter Luke Benson was named Offensive Player of the Week back on Jan. 8 and sophomore outside hitter Trent Moser was named Offensive Player of the Week on Jan. 22.
