Brad Lawson, a 6-7 outside hitter for then-No. 5 Stanford University, has been named the Sports Imports/AVCA Division I-II Men's National Player of the Week. The sophomore earns the award after powering his team to two home Mountain Pacific Sports Federation (MPSF) wins last week. In the Cardinal's first match, a sweep of then-No. 3 UCLA, Lawson hit .400 with 15 kills, five digs and two assists. In Stanford's next match, Lawson drilled 22 kills on .372 hitting, while also picking up nine digs, three blocks and an assist. For the week, Lawson recorded an efficient .384 attack percentage, while averaging 5.29 kills, 2.00 digs and 5.50 points per game. This is the first time Lawson has earned Sports Imports/AVCA Men's Division I-II Player of the Week accolades and marks the seventh time a Stanford athlete has grabbed the award. The last Cardinal to earn the distinction was Evan Romero on March 8, 2008. Stanford is coached by John Kosty.
