Ryan Ammerman, a 6-9 senior setter for then-No. 2 UC Irvine, has been named the Sports Imports/AVCA Division I-II Men's National Player of the Week. Ammerman and the Anteaters won two matches last week, including a road test at the always-tough Pauley Pavilion.  In a sweep of Loyola-Chicago to begin the week, Ammerman recorded 29 assists, and added eight blocks, leading his squad to a .299 hitting percentage.  In the match at UCLA, ranked No. 11 last week, Ammerman tallied a career-high 66 assists in five games, adding a team-high 11 digs, while leading UCI to a .336 hitting percentage.  His 66 assists are ranked eighth in the UCI rally scoring record books.  For the week, Ammerman averaged nearly 12 assists per game, while adding nearly two digs and blocks per game, all while leading the Anteaters to an impressive .322 hitting percentage.  This is the first Sports Imports Division I-II Men's National Player of the Week Ammerman has received, and he is the thirteenth player from UCI ever to earn those honors. UC Irvine is coached by John Speraw
