Samantha Bricio, a freshman outside hitter for the No. 6 University of Southern California Trojans, has been named the Sports Imports/AVCA Division I National Player of the Week.  USC is coming off a week that saw them take both of their home matches against the Pac-12 schools from the state of Arizona.  Bricio was on fire throughout both matches, recording her fourth and fifth double-doubles on the season.  In their first match against Arizona, she had 22 kills (.475 hitting percentage) and 11 digs in just three sets, setting a career-high.  She managed to out-do herself in the following match against Arizona State, this time nailing a new career-high 24 kills and adding another 16 digs.  For the week, she averaged 6.57 kills and 3.86 digs per set while hitting at a .380 clip.  The Mexico native was also named the Pac-12 Offensive Player of the Week and the Freshman of the Week, making her the first freshman in conference history to earn the offensive POW honor.  This marks the eighth time a student-athlete from USC has been named the Sports Imports/AVCA Division I National Player of the Week, with the most recent coming the week of November 2, 2010 when Alex Jupiter garnered the award. The Trojans are coached by Mick Haley.
