Irvine, Calif. - Cal State Fullerton's Brittany Moore joined Cal Poly's Jaclyn Houston as this week's Co-Big West Player of the Week as announced by the Irvine-based league office Monday afternoon.
Moore pounded 46 kills over two league matches last week against UC Irvine and UC Riverside, which was capped off by a career-high effort on Friday night with 30 kills. In the Titan-Highlander match-up, the Orange, Calif., native became the first person in the Big West to record 30 kills this season and the first Titan in eight years to accomplish this feat.
Over the two matches, Moore committed just eight attack errors in 119 chances and picked up two double-doubles along the way. Thursday night against UC Irvine she collected 16 kills and 12 digs and then picked up an additional 30 kills and 15 digs on Friday against UC Riverside. For the week, the 5-11 outside/right-side hitter posted a .319 hitting percentage and averaged 5.11 kills and 3.00 digs per game.
This is Moore's second-career Big West Player of the Week honor and just the eighth-ever in Titan volleyball history. She and Becky Howlett (1990-91) are the only two Titans to earn the award on multiple occasions.
