For just the fourth time in program Pac-12 history, the Colorado women's volleyball team captured two of the three weekly honors from the conference on Monday.

Naghede Abu was named the Pac-12 Defensive Player of the Week for the first time this season and Jenna Ewert earned the Pac-12 Freshman of the Week honor for the second time this season.

The Buffaloes swept Oregon and Oregon State this past week, and Abu totaled 27 kills and 21 blocks. Her 17 blocks at Oregon State set a school record, which she had previously shared at 15.

Ewert compiled 55 assists at No. 16 Oregon to establish a career best, and then surpassed it with 60 with their five-setter against the Beavers. She also had 10 blocks in the OSU match.

Arizona State's Alyse Ford was named the Pac-12 Offensive Player of the Week, averaging six kills per set in a win against USC and a loss to UCLA.

The Buffaloes have a quick turnaround with four matches in eight days and will head to Los Angeles for Wednesday's match at UCLA.
