Luke Hamlet, a 6-7 senior opposite/middle blocker for No. 4 New York University has been named the Sports Imports/AVCA Men's Division III National Player of the Week.  The Violets split both matches last week after dropping a match to Division I Rutgers-Newark then bouncing back for a win over Hunter.  In the five-set loss to the Scarlet Raiders, Hamlet had 15 kills while hitting .533 including three service aces.  NYU had an easier time with Hunter, putting them away in four sets where the New York native picked up another 10 kills and a .421 attack percentage.  This is the 19th time an NYU men's volleyball player has been named a Sports Imports/AVCA Player of the Week, with the most recent coming the week of March 28th of last year when Taylor Fauntleroy garnered the award.  The Violets are coached by Jose Pina.
