Layne Dreven, a 6-8 junior middle blocker for 13th-ranked The Ohio State University (16-6, 9-2 MIVA), has been chosen the Sports Imports/AVCA Division I-II Men's National Player of the Week. Dreven produced a school-record tying hitting percentage as the Buckeyes swept Findlay on March 25. He contributed a perfect hitting performance of 10 kills on 10 attacks as Ohio State defeated Findlay 30-17, 30-23, 30-22. Dreven added three block assists and two digs in the victory. He averaged 3.83 points, 3.33 kills, 1.00 blocks and 0.67 digs per game for the match and week. His performance equals hitting percentages previously reached by former Buckeyes Colin McMilan in 1998 against Tri-State and Gary Wrobel versus Thomas More in 1996. Dreven averages 3.19 points, 2.23 kills, 1.52 blocks and 0.24 digs per game while hitting a team-best .489 for the season. An Ohio State student-athlete has earned the national honor seven times. The Ohio State head coach is Pete Hanson.
