Paul Carroll, a 6-7 right side/opposite for then-No. 5 Pepperdine University, has been named the Sports Imports/AVCA Division I-II Men's National Player of the Week. He earned the award for leading Pepperdine to a crucial win over then-No. 6 UCLA on the road, 3-1, in the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation quarterfinals this past weekend. Carroll, who was injured in the Waves' two losses to the Bruins during the regular season, made the difference in this elimination match. He scored his first double-double of the season, and the seventh of his career, when it counted with 29 kills and 11 digs. He also added four aces and five blocks to his team's totals in the victory. His averages in the Waves' only match of the week were an impressive 7.25 kills - nearly 40 percent of Pepperdine's total (29 of 73) - 2.75 digs, 1.25 blocks, one ace and 7.20 points per game. This is the 18th time a player from Pepperdine has been named the Sports Imports/AVCA Division I-II Men's National Player of the Week. The Waves are coached by Marv Dunphy.
