WALNUT CREEK, Calif. - Senior Tabi Love was named Pac-12 Offensive Player of the Week on Monday after averaging 7.00 kills per set to lead the sixth-ranked Bruins to victories over Washington State and fifth-ranked Washington. She produced 24 kills against the Cougars and 25 versus the Huskies.

On Friday, Love added five digs to her 24 kills, which marked the most for a Bruin in a three-set match this season. She was flawless in the opening set, posting eight kills and no errors in 13 attempts. She added nine kills and three digs in the second and seven kills in the third, leading the Bruins in kills in all three sets and hitting .412 for the match.

On Sunday, Love had another strong opening set, producing 10 of the Bruins' 19 kills to go with three digs. She also led the Bruins in kills in the second with six and the third with seven, finishing the match with two kills and three digs in the fourth. Love produced six digs and a pair of blocks.

Love leads the Bruins with 4.55 kills and 4.94 points per set, and has a .320 hitting percentage on the season. She has seven matches this season with at least 20 kills after failing to surpass the mark last year.

This season marks the second in which the Pac-12 has handed out weekly Offensive, Defensive and Freshman of the Week awards. Love earned her first-ever Pac-12 POW honor and it was the third Offensive POW for the Bruins over the last two years.

The now fifth-ranked Bruins open up a four-match road trip on Friday at Arizona at 8 p.m. The match will be broadcast live on Pac-12 Networks and Gametracker will be available at
