Gillen named player of the week
Arkansas outside hitter Jill Gillen earned SEC Player of the Week honors and Offensive Player of the Week after leading her team to two five-set victories, the conference announced Monday. She totaled 24 kills against Ole Miss on Wednesday and 26 against Florida on Sunday, both of which being season-highs at the time. Her 26 against the Gators were the most by any Razorback this season. Gillen’s efforts helped Arkansas extend its win total to 24 this season, its highest since 2003. The Razorbacks also beat the Gators twice in the same season for the first time in program history. The weekly honor is Gillen’s first this season and the seventh of her career. She is second in the SEC with 4.22 kills per set and tied for first with 0.44 aces per set.
