Turner is MWC’s Player of Week

For the Utah volleyball team, being down 20-13 in game four of Friday’s match vs. BYU was a situation in which the Crimson Court crowd could sense a BYU victory.

However, Utah’s Kim Turner knew that the Utes had it in them to beat the Cougars.

As a result of her subsequent great play, Turner was awarded the Mountain West Conference Player of the Week award.

Turner was the main reason the Utes turned the match around against BYU, as she recorded 8 kills in game four and totaled a season-high 18 kills throughout the entire match.

Additionally, she has been on a tear through the past few matches. Against Weber State last Tuesday, Turner had 10 kills, and had an attack percentage of .750.

The past week has been great to Turner, as she has averaged 4.0 kills per game, 0.43 digs per game, 1.43 blocks per game and an attack percentage of .444.

Turner follows teammate Sylva Strzinkov as a winner of the award. Strzinkov won the award the week before.
