LAKEPOINT, Ga. – Lipscomb’s Carlyle Nusbaum was named the ASUN Conference volleyball Player of the Week for the ninth time in her career, breaking a tie with former Bisons star Alex Kelly for the most in conference history.
Nusbaum notched her 1,200th career kill over the weekend, after totaling 52 to go along with 29 digs and a .361 hitting percentage. In the matches with Jacksonville and North Florida, she averaged 7.43 kills, 4.14 digs and 8.00 points per set.
Friday versus the Dolphins, the Overland Park, Kansas native tallied 28 kills, 13 digs, three blocks and 30.5 points. She committed just seven errors in 63 swings to hit .333 in the four-set loss. The junior completed her weekend with 24 kills, 16 digs and a .400 hitting percentage Saturday in a sweep of UNF. The back-to-back double-double efforts give her 13 on the year, after having 10 in 2016.
Nusbaum has now eclipsed the 20-kill plateau eight times this season and 18 times in her career.
The outside hitter is leading the ASUN in kills (431), kills per set (5.13) points (457.0) and points per set (5.5).
The player of the week honor is the third of the season for Nusbaum.
Lipscomb is back on the court this weekend for its final two matches of the regular season. The Bisons play at FGCU at 6 p.m. Friday before traveling to Stetson at 5 p.m. Saturday.
