Kruize Named OVC Newcomer of the Week

BRENTWOOD, Tenn. --- Junior college transfer JoJo Kruize has been named Ohio Valley Conference Newcomer of the Week, as announced by the league office Monday afternoon.

After conference opening weekend, the Hawaiian native racked up 24 kills on a .302 hitting average, 26.5 points, one assist, four digs and four blocks to help the Tigers go 2-0 over crosstown-rival Belmont and Eastern Illinois.

In the sweep of EIU, Kruize led the Tiger offense with 15 kills, her career best, and posted three block assists, helping TSU rank second in the league in opponent hitting percentage and blocks.

Kruize and the Tigers will be back in action Friday at Jacksonville State for a 7 p.m. match at the Pete Mathews Coliseum.
