Alisha Glass, a sophomore setter for No. 1 Penn State University, has been named this week's Sports Imports/AVCA Division I National Player of the Week.  Glass controlled the Penn State offense as the Nittany Lions clinched their fifth consecutive Big Ten Championship over the weekend.  Against No. 9 Wisconsin, Glass distributed 59 assists and supplied 10 digs to collect her ninth career double-double.  She led the top-ranked Nittany Lions to an impressive .346 hitting percentage, helping three teammates to 15 or more kills apiece.  The following night against Illinois, she dished out 40 more assists, adding two kills, five digs and six blocks.  Like a good offensive director does, she again led three teammates to 10 or more kills each, and set the team to a .355 hitting clip.  Glass averaged 14.10 assists per game over the two matches, as the team combined to hit .350, with three different hitters registering over four kills per game.  She also averaged over two digs and one block per game.  This honor marks the second time Glass has been named Sports Imports/AVCA Division I National Player of the Week, and it's the fifth time a player from Penn State has won the award.  Glass also won the award in September of 2006.  Penn State is coached by Russ Rose.
