CU volleyball’s Bober named national player of the week

Creighton Volleyball senior Megan Bober has been named National Player of the Week by CVU.com after helping the Bluejays to the USF Invitational title last weekend in Tampa. Bober, who was named MVC Player of the Week on Monday, is believed to be the first player in program history honored by that volleyball-specific website.

A senior from Murdock, Neb., Bober had three consecutive double-doubles to lead the Jays to the USF Invitational title, the program’s first since 2006.  For the weekend, she averaged 8.73 assists, 3.09 digs, 2.18 kills and 0.64 blocks per set on .408 hitting in wins over teams from the Big Ten, Big East and Conference USA. She had 36 assists, 12 digs, six kills and five blocks while hitting .385 in the season-opening win vs. UCF. On Saturday vs. host USF, Bober approached a triple-double with 22 assists, 14 digs and eight kills on .353 hitting. Bober finished with 38 assists, 10 kills and eight digs on .474 hitting in the clincher vs. Wisconsin.

Creighton (3-0) hosts the Bluejay Invitational this weekend, beginning with a 6 pm match vs. Syracuse (3-0). Denver (2-1) takes on No. 21 Kansas State (3-0) in the first match of the event beginning at 3:30 pm in D.J. Sokol Arena.
