PROVO, Utah – Senior Leo Durkin has been named the Off the Block/Molten National Setter of the Week, the organization announced Monday.

Durkin guided BYU men’s volleyball to three wins last week to claim the Outrigger Resorts Invitational championship.

In a five-set win against No. 11 Penn State, Durkin contributed a match-high 50 assists to go with a team-high nine digs and five blocks. The team eclipsed the .300 hitting-percentage mark with a .302 clip.

Then against No. 8 Lewis, he put up 35 assists, four digs and four blocks as the Cougars won against the Flyers for the second time this season.

In the finale against No. 2 Hawai’i, Durkin had a match-high 44 assists while guiding the offense to a .340 hitting percentage in a four-set upset win.

This is the second-consecutive week that Durkin has been selected as the Off the Block National Setter of the Week.
