Mari Hole, a senior outside hitter for No. 15 Ohio State University, has been named the Sports Imports/AVCA Division I National Player of the Week. She helped lead the Buckeyes to a pair of Big Ten victories recording her 14th and 15th double-doubles of the season. In their first match of the week against Northwestern, Hole nailed 19 kills hitting .395 with 13 digs in the four-set win. A few days later OSU matched up against Illinois; where Hole went on to tally 21 kills, with five of them coming in the fifth set including the match-winning point. Those 21 kills marked the seventh time this season she's had 20+ kills in a match. This is the eighth time a student-athlete from Ohio State has been named the Sports Imports/AVCA Division I National Player of the Week, with the most recent honor going to Marissa Main the week of October 24, 2005. The Buckeyes are coached by Geoff Carlston.
