Marcin Midura, a 6-4 outside hitter for Rutgers-Newark, has been named the Sports Imports/AVCA Division I-II Men's National Player of the Week after propelling the Scarlet Raiders to a pair of wins, including an upset of then-No. 6 Penn State. The sophomore kicked action off by drilling 12 kills, to go along with two digs, two blocks and an ace in Rutgers-Newark's sweep of Sacred Heart. He ended the week with a bang, notching a double-double of 22 kills and 10 digs, in addition to scoring two blocks and an ace in the four-set triumph over Penn State. The win marked Rutgers-Newark's first against the Nittany Lions since March 27, 2004.  For the week, Midura hit an efficient .475 and averaged 4.86 kills, 1.71 digs and 5.36 points per game. This is the sixth time a Rutgers-Newark athlete has garnered Sports Imports/AVCA Men's Division I-II Player of the Week accolades, the last player to do so being Andrew Pink on March 29, 2004. The Scarlet Raiders are coached by Karl France.
