Yadhira Anchante Named Big East Offensive Player of the Week


Let's go to the Marquette press release on the details, since that's almost always more elaborate:

For the week, she averaged 11.57 assists and 3.14 digs per set, while helping MU hit a combined .360. Anchante also averaged 1.86 kills herself and hit .542.

She began the week with 35 assists, nine digs and a service ace in a sweep of DePaul on Wednesday and recorded her first career triple-double in NCAA play with 10 kills, 46 assists and 13 digs against Butler on Saturday night.

The native of Lima, Peru ranks third in the BIG EAST in assists (10.27 per set) and is sixth in service aces with 17 on the year (0.38/set). As a team, the Golden Eagles are hitting a league-high .286 with Anchante at the helm, and lead the BIG EAST in kills with 14.11 per frame.
