CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – Senior co-captain Riley Moore and junior Trevor Dow have been selected as this week's EIVA Offensive and Defensive Players of the week, respectively, as announced by the conference on Monday afternoon.
Moore led the Crimson attack to a pair of significant conference wins this weekend over Saint Francis (Pa.) and Penn State. The Santa Monica, Calif. native tied his season-best 10 kills on Friday night against the Red Flash, hitting .692 for the match with only one error. The middle blocker then continued to dominate on Saturday against Penn State, when he set a new career-high in kills at 14 and notched zero errors for the sixth time this season, allowing him to hit .875 on the night. Moore currently ranks first in the EIVA in hitting percentage at .452, good for third in the nation.
Dow was a standout on defense this weekend against the Red Flash and Nittany Lions. The Needham, Mass. native tallied eight blocks in nine sets over the course of the weekend. With seven total blocks against Penn State on Saturday night, Dow set a new career-high with three block solos. At 0.99 blocks per set, Dow currently sits sixth in the EIVA and 31st in the nation.
Harvard gained sole possession of second place in the EIVA standings this weekend at 8-2 in conference play and 9-11 overall. The Crimson will return to action this weekend, April 6-7, hosting Princeton and NJIT in two league matches. Contests are slated to begin at 7 p.m. and 4 p.m., respectively.
