Steven Kehoe, a 6-4 setter for then-No. 14 The Ohio State University, has been named the Sports Imports/AVCA Division I-II Men's National Player of the Week after quarterbacking his team to a four-set upset of then-No. 6 Penn State. The junior dished out 54 assists during the match, to go along with seven digs, four kills, one block and one ace, in the Buckeyes' first win in PSU's Rec Hall since Jan. 12, 1999. The victory was also OSU's first against the Nittany Lions in the teams' last nine go-abouts and snapped PSU's 51-match home winning streak. For the week, Kehoe averaged 13.50 assists and 1.75 digs per game, while directing the OSU offense to a .283 team hitting percentage. This is the 12th time an Ohio State player has snagged Sports Imports/AVCA Men's Division I-II Player of the Week accolades, the last athlete to do so being Ted Schoenfeldt on April 6, 2009. The Buckeyes are coached by Pete Hanson.
