Missouri volleyball outside hitter Kylie Deberg was named the Southeastern Conference Overall and Offensive Player of the Week Monday after her performances against LSU and Texas A&M.

The junior from Hudson, Iowa, tallied 20 kills and two aces during Wednesday night’s four-set victory over LSU. Deberg followed that performance up with 23 kills and 13 digs in Sunday’s five-set comeback thriller against Texas A&M.

"Kylie had another big week for us and is completely deserving of these honors," interim head coach Joshua Taylor said in a press release. "She’s been so consistent for us all year and has taken her game to another level."

Deberg now has had five consecutive matches with at least 20 kills and is the first Tiger since 2016 to have at least six matches of 20-plus kills. She leads the SEC  in kills (243), kills per set (5.06), total aces (28), aces per set (0.58), and total points for (285).

"(Deberg’s) really stepped up as a leader on the court and we’re very proud of all her contributions thus far," Taylor said.

The Tigers are back in action at 7 p.m. Wednesday against Ole Miss at the Hearnes Center.
