The awards continue to roll in for Colorado junior Alexa Smith as she was named the VolleyMob National Player of the Week on Tuesday.

Smith, an outside hitter for the Buffs, averaged a team-best 4.56 kills per set while adding 3.33 digs per set in a pair of matches last week. She started the weekend with 16 kills and 15 digs against Xavier on Sept. 15, for her third double-double of the season.

In CU's 3-2 upset at Colorado State, which was CU's first win at Moby Arena since 1995, Smith hammered a career-high 25 kills, the third most by a Pac-12 player this season, and hit .310 while adding 15 digs for her fourth double-double this season. She served up a pair of aces and posted one block solo in the win.

Smith was also named the Pac-12 Offensive and CU Athlete of the Week for her strong performance.
