LONG BEACH - Junior outside hitter Taylor Crabb (Honolulu, Hawaii/ Punahou HS) has been named the MPSF Molten Player of the Week the conference office announced Monday.
Crabb led Long Beach State to three Mountain Pacific Sports Federation wins last week as he combined for 54 kills (4.50/set), 23 digs (1.92/set) and 12 blocks (1.00/set), while hitting .379. He registered his 13th career double-double with 17 kills and a season-best 11 digs in a 3-1 victory at No. 5 UCLA.
Crabb followed that performance with a career-high 22 kills to go along with nine digs and five blocks in a five-set triumph over Hawai'i. After the Warriors took match point at 14-13, Crabb stepped up and played a part in the final three points of the night (two kills, one block) to send LBSU to victory.
Less than 24 hours later, he posted a career-best .522 hitting percentage with a match-high 15 kills in a sweep of Hawai'i. Crabb also accumulated five blocks and three aces.
On the season, Crabb is averaging 4.08 kills, 1.85 digs and 0.77 blocks per set. This was Crabb's first career MPSF Player of the Week award and the first for the 49ers since Antwain Aguillard earned the honor on March 28, 2011.
Long Beach State continues MPSF action on the road this weekend when it heads to No. 3 UC Irvine (Jan. 25) and No. 12 UC San Diego (Jan. 26).
