USC women's volleyball senior

outside hitter Skylar Fields (Missouri

City, Texas/Ridge Point HS)

was named the GameChanger/

AVCA National Player of the Week

by the American Volleyball Coaches

Association on Tuesday, Oct. 11.

Fields was also picked as the

Pac-12's Offensive Player of the

Week for the second consecutive

week (Oct. 3, Oct. 10) and receives

the 12th all-time national weekly

honor won by a Trojan player. She

is the first USC player selected

since All-American OH Khalia Lanier

was picked on Nov. 12, 2019.

Fields leads the Pac-12 in kills

(308, ninth nationally), kills per

set (4.89 kps, seventh nationally),

points (336.0, 12th nationally), and

points per set (5.33 pps, 10th nationally).

She helped power USC to

a pair of four-set road wins at Arizona

and Arizona State with 49 kills

(6.13 kps) on .381 hitting. Fields set

new career marks with 27 kills and

29.0 points against the Sun Devils

and logged her fifth and sixth consecutive

20-kill matches. She now

has eight 20-plus kill contests this

season and 16 in double digits.

Fields also posted 13 digs against

Arizona and 12 more against ASU

to total 25 and averaged 3.13 dps

over the weekend while collecting

the fifth and sixth double-doubles of

her career.

USC claimed a pair of four-set

wins over the weekend to improve

to 13-4 overall and to 5-1 in Pac-

12 contests. The Trojans are tied

for first in the league standings as

they return home to Galen Center

to host 17th-ranked Oregon (10-4,

4-2) on Friday (Oct. 14) at 8 p.m.

PT and Oregon State (6-10, 1-5)

on Sunday (Oct. 16) at noon. Both

matches are set to be shown live
