Moss Named to COBRA All-Preseason Second Team

Nashville, Tenn. - Junior setter Erika Moss was recently selected to COBRA's All-Preseason Second Team.

Moss is the only OVC player to be chosen to any of the magazine's three All-Preseason Teams.

A native of Fort Wayne, Ind., Moss had a breakout sophomore campaign a year ago and led the Tigers in assists with 1201. Moss was also second in the OVC in assists per set with 10.44.

Her numbers in conference play earned her an OVC Player of the Week Award on Nov. 7 and a place on the All-OVC Team at the end of the season.

During last year's campaign, Moss recorded 12 double-doubles and 30-plus assists in a game 28 times. On Sept. 23, Moss recorded a career-high in assists with 62 against SIU Edwardsville.

COBRA is a magazine that features African-American, Samoan, Tongan and Afro-Caribbean volleyball players in hopes of inspiring younger players from those ethnic groups to play volleyball and become successful women on and off the court.

The nomination comes weeks after Moss was selected to COBRA's All-Southeast Region Team.

COBRA also awarded Moss with the Setter of the Year award for 2011.

Moss and the rest of the Tigers are currently participating in summer practice in preparation of the team's first match on Aug. 24.
