Oct. 21 - Kasey Williams, a junior setter for No. 3 Concordia-St. Paul, has been named the Sports Imports/AVCA Division II National Player of the Week. Williams quarterbacked the Golden Bears to a perfect 3-0 week at home, as they shoot for their unprecedented eighth consecutive NCAA Division II Championship.

Against then-No. 20 Augustana, the Wisconsin native registered a weekend-best 51 assists with 12 digs, but more impressively as a team the Bears hit .415. She followed that up with a 45-assist, seven-kill performance against No. 12 Wayne State (NE). In that match as a team they hit a tremendous .373. For the week, the setter averaged 14.40 assists and 2.60 digs per set while leading her squad to a .349 team hitting percentage.
