Paul Carroll, a 6-9 senior right side/opposite for then-No. 3 Pepperdine University has been named the Sports Imports/AVCA Division I-II Men's National Player of the Week. It is the fifth time he's received the award in his career, breaking the Pepperdine record of four set by former Wave, George Roumain. In addition to today's honor, Carroll received the award April 16, 2007, Jan. 14 and April 21, 2008, and Jan. 26, 2009. Carroll earns this week's distinction because of his outstanding play last week in helping the Waves defeat two nationally ranked opponents, then-No. 8 UCLA and then-No. 2 UC Irvine. In the match against UCLA, Carroll hit .357 and had 19 kills, two digs and two block assists in the sweep of the Bruins. He then scored a double-double in a 3-1 win over the Anteaters, smashing down 37 kills, while scooping up 16 digs. He also hit .462 had three block assists in the match. For the week, Carroll hit .421, and averaged 8.00 kills, 2.57 digs and 8.36 points per game. This is the second time this season that Carroll has been named Sports Imports Division I-II Men's National Player of the Week. The last Pepperdine player other than Carroll to earn the award was Jonathan Winder on April 28, 2008. The Waves are coached by Marv Dunphy.
