Nov. 23, 2009
GREENSBORO, N.C. - Florida State senior outside hitter Mira Djuric earned Atlantic Coast Conference Volleyball Player of the Week honors, announced today, after helping the Seminoles to 3-0 sweeps of Boston College (Nov. 20) and Maryland (Nov. 22). Florida State clinched at least a share of the 2009 ACC championship and a berth in the 2009 NCAA Championship with the win over the Eagles, and earned the outright conference crown in the win over the Terrapins.
Djuric had a season-high five service aces, which is tied as the second-best total in the ACC this season, and 10 kills to go with a .444 hitting percentage against Boston College. She also recorded one dig and two total blocks. The win gave the Seminoles a two-match lead over second-place Duke and guaranteed at least a share of the ACC regular-season championship and a berth in the 2009 NCAA Championship, as Florida State owned the head-to-head tie-breaker over the Blue Devils.
In Florida State's outright ACC championship-clinching victory over Maryland, the Belgrade, Serbia, native smashed 11 kills and hit at a .421 clip. She also added six digs, three total blocks, and three more service aces. For the weekend, Djuric averaged 3.50 kills per set and 1.30 service aces per set.
Djuric is leading the ACC with 55 service aces and a 0.51 service aces per set average this season, and averages 2.58 kills per set on a .232 hitting percentage and 0.62 blocks per set.
Florida State will conclude its regular-season on Wednesday, November 25 when it travels to Coral Gables, Fla. to take on in-state rival Miami at the Knight Sports Complex at 1 p.m.
The ACC Volleyball Player of the Week will be announced by 5:00 p.m. each Monday during the season. More ACC volleyball information can be accessed at http://www.theacc.com/sports/w-volley/acc-w-volley-body.html.
