Werth Named Big Ten Player-of-the-Week

Lincoln, Neb.- Nebraska junior Hannah Werth was honored by the Big Ten Conference on Monday after being selected as the Big Ten Player-of-the-Week. The accolade marks Werth's second career Big Ten weekly award, as she was named Player-of-the-Week on Oct. 17.

Werth recorded 3.8 digs and 3.5 kills on .323 hitting to lead No. 4 Nebraska to four-set wins over No. 19 Minnesota and Wisconsin last weekend, helping the Huskers clinch at least a share of the Big Ten title. She posted 14 kills, 17 digs and a .379 hitting percentage against Minnesota. Werth then notched her second double-double of the week against the Badgers, recording 14 kills and 13 digs.

Werth has 267 kills the season, averaging 2.75 per set. She also has 296 digs for Nebraska defensively, with an average of 3.05 per set.

The Huskers travel to Iowa City, Iowa to take on Iowa on Tuesday, Nov. 22 at 6 p.m. at Carver-Hawkeye Arena. The match can be seen on BTN.com with a subscription.
