Simon Anderson Named Big West Freshman Player of the Week
Anderson earns weekly honors for the third time this season
LONG BEACH – For the third time this season, Long Beach State freshman middle blocker Simon Anderson has been named Big West Conference Freshman Player of the Week.
The Middlefart, Denmark native turned in another stellar performance as he helped lead the top-ranked Beach to their 12th straight victory. Anderson finished the week with 12 kills on 14 swings without committing an error en route to hitting .857 in a pair of LBSU road sweeps.
Anderson was perfect in Long Beach State’s win at George Mason as he knocked down seven kills in as many attempts for a 1.000 attack percentage.
If his offensive effort wasn’t enough, Anderson also added a pair of blocks on the week.
Anderson and the Beach will be back in action on Saturday, Feb. 17 when they host No. 2 UCLA at 7:30 p.m. inside the Walter Pyramid.
