Jayson Jablonsky, a 6-4 outside hitter for No. 1 UC Irvine, has been selected as the Sports Imports/AVCA Division I-II Men's National Player of the Week.  Jablonsky helped lead the Anteaters to two wins over fellow CSTV/AVCA Top 15 teams last week, No. 10 Cal State Northridge and then-No. 6 UC Santa Barbara.  For the week, Jablonsky averaged 5.50 kills, 2.25 digs, 0.62 blocks, and 6.0 points per game, while hitting .507 on 69 attacks.  In his team's match against Cal State Northridge, Jablonsky tallied 16 kills on 25 attempts and added seven digs, while compiling a .480 hitting percentage.   Two days later in the five-game thriller with UC Santa Barbara, the senior totaled a career-high 28 kills, hitting .523 and tying his career high of 11 digs, while nailing six kills in six attempts in the final set.  The Anteaters are now 8-0 on the season and are 4-0 in conference play.  This marks the third time that Jablonsky has won the Sports Imports/AVCA National Player of the Week award, and the sixth time overall it has gone to a UC Irvine men's volleyball player.  The Anteaters' head coach is John Speraw.
