Devine, Wiley and Creamer Earn #ASunVB Weekly Awards

Monday, November 11, 2013

MACON, Ga. - ETSU's Megan Devine and Khadijah Wiley and Stetson's Tiffany Creamer posted strong performances in conference action to collect Atlantic Sun Weekly Volleyball Honors as announced by the conference on Monday.

Devine earned her fourth weekly honor of 2013, leading the Bucs to their eighth straight victory and 14th straight win at home. Devine averaged five kills and four digs per set while adding four blocks and a service ace in ETSU's wins against Lipscomb and Northern Kentucky. Devine tallied a career-high of 28 kills in the five-set thriller against Lipscomb.

Wiley tallied 12 blocks for the Buccaneers, averaging 1.50 per set to lead the Buccaneers in both matches. Playing on an injured leg, she provided the Bucs with seven blocks and 13 kills (.480 attack percentage) in the gritty five-set win against Lipscomb, and followed that with five blocks and eight kills (.500 attack percentage) in the four-set win vs. NKU. Wiley also registered the key block assist that ended Lipscomb's comeback in the fifth set.

Creamer earns her fourth Freshman of the Week honor of 2013, as she averaged 3.6 kills, 2.9 digs, and 0.4 blocks per set last week to help lead the Hatters to their first A-Sun tournament berth in 18 years. Creamer also recorded a season-high 23 kills in Stetson's five-set match at UNF and paired them with 18 digs for her first career double-double.

About Player of the Week
The following criteria are used by the Atlantic Sun Conference in selecting the A-Sun Players of the Week in each of the conference’s 20 sports. These criteria are used in no specific order and, in its groupings, one does not weigh more than the others:
• Statistics compiled during the week of competition
• The impact of that person’s efforts in meeting the team goals (i.e., game-winning shot, walk-off home run, etc.)
• Magnitude of the contest on the conference and national level (i.e., game meant championship, etc.)
• When individual participates in more than one game per week, how that individual performs in each of those games, effecting team performance goals
• Level of competition faced by each individual
• Each week’s performance will be considered on its own merit
• Other pertinent factors (i.e., career milestones; program, conference and/or national records)
