Taylor Wilson, a 6-7 right side/opposite for then-No. 10 UC Irvine, has been named the Sports Imports/AVCA Division I-II Men's National Player of the Week after helping his team two wins over nationally-ranked opponents last week, including an upset of then-No. 2 Pepperdine. In the Anteaters' 3-1 defeat of the Waves, Wilson put away 24 kills in 47 attempts and only eight errors for a .340 hitting percentage. He also had four digs and three total blocks in the win. Then in UCI's 3-1 over then No. 11 Southern California, he scored 19 kills, five digs and three total blocks in the win. For the week, Wilson averaged 5.38 kills, 1.12 digs and 6.13 points per game. This is the ninth time a player from UC Irvine has earned the Sports Imports/AVCA Division I-II Men's National Player of the Week. The last Anteater to receive the honor was Matt Webber on April 30, 2007. UC Irvine is coached by John Speraw, the 2006 AVCA Division I-II Men's National Coach of the Year.
