Oct. 30, 2012
IRVING, Texas - For the 17th time in her career, senior outside hitter Tyler Henderson was named the Conference USA Offensive Player of the Week, the league office announced Tuesday.
Henderson, the C-USA career points leader, currently leads the nation in kills per set with 5.23 and is tied for the top spot in the country for points with 5.73 per frame. This marks the third time this season she has earned the award.
"Tyler has really been improving the efficiency of her game the last couple of weeks," commented Head Coach Steven McRoberts. "Not only has she maintained her high number of kills, but her hitting percentage has gone up as well which is huge for the team."
On the week, Henderson averaged 5.00 kills per set, 1.00 dig per set and 5.42 points per frame to lead the Golden Hurricane to a pair of sweeps. On the road against Memphis on October 25, Henderson tallied 12 kills on 25 swings for an attack percentage of .302 as TU defeated the Tigers. Henderson also chipped in three blocks and two digs in the contest. In Sunday's afternoon affair against UAB, Henderson recorded 18 kills and hit .293 as Tulsa snapped UAB's nine-match winning streak. Henderson earned a service ace and recorded four digs in the match.
Tulsa will hit the road for the final time during the regular season this weekend. Tulsa will face Tulane on Thursday, November 1 in a 7 p.m. tilt before playing UTEP in a 1 p.m. match on Sunday, November 4. Tulsa has a 18-8 overall record and sits in first place in the Conference USA standings with a 11-1 mark.
