Week #3 Winner
Texas Christian University
Head Coach - Prentice Lewis
With nearly 10,000 votes cast in its third week of the 2010 season, the Volleyball Market/AVCA Play of the Week has been awarded to the Texas Christian University volleyball team. The Horned Frogs earned the honor after beating the other four semifinalists - Clemson University, Converse College, the University of Mississippi and the University of Tennessee- during a week-long voting period.
The award-winning play came during TCU's home match against Mid-American Conference foe Ohio University on September 18. The 10-second play is highlighted by the Horned Frogs' outstanding save of an Ohio attack attempt from the right side. After TCU's serve to start out the play, Ohio set the ball up for a slide coming from their middle blocker. TCU's middle back player dug the ball up sending it deep to an unmanned corner of the Bobcats backcourt for the win of the point. TCU went on to win the match 3-1, which led the Horned Frogs to become champions of the Nike Invitational.
The play, which can be viewed on the AVCA's YouTube channel by clicking here, will now join the previous weeks' finalists in becoming eligible for the Volleyball Market/AVCA Play of the Year, to be announced at the AVCA All-America/Players of the Year Banquet on Friday, Dec. 17, at the AVCA Convention in Kansas City, Mo.
