Greensboro, N.C. – University of Miami freshman outside hitter Lane Carico has been selected as this week’s Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC) Volleyball Player of the Week as announced Monday afternoon by the conference office in Greensboro, N.C.
Carico, a 5-foot-11 native of Manhattan Beach, California, led the Hurricanes in back-to-back ACC wins against North Carolina State and North Carolina, respectively. That now sits the `Canes in a tie for first place in the league alongside Virginia Tech at 7-2. Miami is enjoying their best season since joining the ACC as they hold an overall record of 19-2.
On the week, Carico registered 30 kills on 75 swings for a hitting percentage of .347 (30-4-75). She also picked up four assists and 28 digs with an assisted block.
On Friday night, Carico recorded 12 kills in UM’s 3-0 sweep over N.C. State. She hit .273 in the tilt with seven digs as well. On Saturday, she posted her 10th double-double of the season with an 18-kill, 21-dig performance in the `Canes 3-1 win over the Tar Heels. Her 18 kills rank second amongst four set matches and mark the sixth time this season she has hit for more than 15 kills.
Carico averaged .405 in the match, making only one error in 42 attempts. The 21 digs in the North Carolina match are a season high for her in that category.
