LONG BEACH - Long Beach State senior outside hitter Taylor Crabb (Honolulu, Hawaii) has earned his second consecutive MPSF/Molten Men's Volleyball Player of the Week honor the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation announced Monday afternoon.
After the sixth-ranked 49ers dropped the first two sets at No. 7 Stanford, Crabb stepped up and was a key factor in bringing LBSU back for the 3-2 win (17-25, 25-27, 25-18, 25-18, 15-11). He delivered a career-best 29 kills, including seven in the fifth and decisive set. Crabb also finished with 12 digs to complete his third double-double of the year.
Crabb, whose 29 kills were a 2014 MPSF single-match high, committed just seven errors on a career-high 68 attempts (.324).
Crabb came back one day later to register a match-best 15 kills in a quick 25-22, 25-12, 25-16 victory at Pacific. He hit .400 and added seven digs.
Over the two matches, Crabb averaged 5.50 kills and 2.38 digs per set, while hitting at a .347 clip. On the season, he is tops in the nation with 4.83 kills per set.
Crabb also garnered MPSF Player of the Week honors on Jan. 27, after leading Long Beach State to a five-set win over then No. 1 Pepperdine. This is the third career weekly award for Crabb.
The 49ers are idle this week and will return to action at top-ranked UCLA on Wednesday, Feb. 12. First serve is set for 7 p.m. at Pauley Pavilion.
