Julia Teixeira, a senior outside hitter for Barry University has been named the Sports Imports/AVCA Division II National Player of the Week. She earned the award after keying the Buccaneers to a pair of Sunshine State Conference victories last week. First up for Barry was a whitewashing of Lynn, a match in which Teixeira registered a double-double with 15 kills and 11 digs. She followed with a 17-kill, six-dig, three-ace effort in the Buccaneers' sweep of Florida Tech. For the week, Teixeira averaged 5.30 kills, 2.80 digs and 6.20 points per set, while hitting .406. This marks the fourth time an athlete from Barry has garnered Sports Imports/AVCA Division II Player of the Week honors, the last time coming Nov. 5, 2001 when Simone Ferrarezi earned the distinction. The Buccaneers are coached by Frederico Santos.
