Zuzana Markova Named AVSR Global Player of the Week


MONROE, La. - After an outstanding performance in all four of ULM's matches last week, Zuzana Markova was named the American Volleyball Scouting Repot Global Player of the Week Monday. Markova is the first ULM player in history to earn the honor, which is the second of her career.

The AVSR Global Player of the Week award recognizes the best cumulative performance of international players that have been previously reported on through the AVSR. Markova is just the second Sun Belt Conference player to be selected for the award since 2008, with Middle Tennessee's Izabela Kozon winning the award four times over her tenure. The junior transfer also earned the honor in 2009 during her freshman season at Kent State.

The native of Cesky Kromlov, Czech Republic, had a phenomenal showing all-around for the Warhawks with four triple-doubles in all four matches last week, bringing her season total to six out of 10 matches played this season. The setter capped her performance in a five-set thriller over Alabama A&M in which she led ULM to victory by crushing a career-high 20 kills while collecting 20 assists and 14 digs to earn a spot on the all-tournament team.

Markova is averaging a triple-double over the entire 2011 season, with 13 kills, 18 assists, and 10 digs per match. After collecting 3.78 kills per set last week, the junior's season average improves to 3.02 kills per set to move her into ninth place in the Sun Belt rankings. Markova also ranks seventh in service aces (0.36 per set) while leading the Warhawks in assists with 4.29 per set.

ULM begins conference play this weekend when it travels to Troy, Ala., to face Troy on Friday at 7p.m. followed by a match against South Alabama Saturday at 6 p.m. in Mobile, Ala.
