Dieudonne tabbed C-USA Setter of the Week for second-straight week

DALLAS – Following another 3-0 weekend at the LUV Invite, WKU Volleyball’s Nadia Dieudonne was recognized as the Conference USA Setter of the Week for the second time in as many weeks. Monday’s award marks the 13th for Dieudonne across her three seasons on The Hill.

The Louisville, Ky., native followed up her Co-Setter of the Week outing with an even better showing as she earned LUV Invite MVP honors. As the Hilltoppers climbed to 6-0 on the season including three Power Five wins across the first two weekends of play, Dieudonne was no doubt a primary reason why.

The fifth-year setter opened the LUV Invite with her first double double of the season as she racked up 45 assists, 13 digs, three aces and a solo block as the Hilltoppers downed their second 2020 NCAA Tournament team in as many weekends. On Saturday, Dieudonne led the Hilltoppers to a pair of sweeps of Power Five teams for the first time in program history while facilitating the WKU offensive to a .340 clip against Kansas and .300 against Wake Forest.

Dieudonne averaged 11.40 assists per set, 2.40 digs per set, 0.70 kills per set, 0.40 aces per set and 0.40 blocks per set across WKU’s 3-0 weekend at the LUV Invite. Additionally, she was one of the Hilltoppers’ most steady servers, owning a 97.8 % rate from the line in 46 attempts.
