Robart Page, a 7-0 senior outside hitter for then-No. 7 UCLA, has been named the Sports Imports/AVCA Men's Division I-II National Player of the Week. The big seven-footer strolled into Hawai'i for the Outrigger Hotels Invitational and proved early in the 2014 campaign he is one of the most dominant outsides in the MPSF. He led the Bruins in kills to help defeat three ranked opponents in the top-15 of the AVCA Coaches Poll: Penn State (No. 11), Ohio State (No. 12) and Hawai'i (No. 14). He notched a career-high 23 kills against the Nittany Lions, also hitting .525 with 11 digs and three total blocks. He went on to collect a combined 28 kills and 12 digs against the Buckeyes and the Rainbow Warriors hitting .292 and .379, respectively. With the win over Hawai'i, the Bruins won the Outrigger Hotels Invitational Tournament with Page taking home the Most Outstanding Player for his efforts. For the week, he averaged 4.3 kills, 1.9 digs and 4.9 points per set hitting at a .419 clip. This is the 19th time in program history a UCLA student-athlete has garnered Sports Imports/Player of the Week honors, with the most recent coming from Gonzalo Quiroga on April 4th of last year. The Bruins are coached by John Speraw.
