Kristen Hahn (Iowa State) highlights the final Big 12 volleyball weekly awards for 2012 as the junior picks up her eighth Defensive Player of the Week honor for the season. The eight weekly awards is a single-season high for a Big 12 volleyball student-athlete.

Hahn surpasses Haley Eckerman (Texas) who combined for seven honors in 2011. The libero has totaled 12 Defensive Player of the Week selections in her career, which is second-most all-time for that category and third-most all-time for combined career weekly honors.

In addition to Hahn's accolade, Sallie McLaurin (Oklahoma) was named the Offensive Player of the Week, while Andie Malloy (Iowa State) earned her second consecutive Rookie of the Week honor. This marks the sixth career award for McLaurin, who was the recipient of three Rookie of the Weeks in 2010 and a pair of Defensive Player of the Week recognitions in 2011.

OFFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE WEEK

McLaurin totaled double-digit kills in each of Oklahoma's wins last week as the Sooners topped TCU and No. 25 Kansas State. The middle blocker hit over .400 in each match. Against the Horned Frogs, McLaurin helped OU secure its 20th win of the season with 10 kills off of 21 attempts and no errors to hit .476 on the night. In an upset victory over No. 25 K-State, the junior led the team with 14 kills and a .481 hitting percentage after she struck down 14 of her 27 attempts with just one error for her 15th .400-plus hitting performance of her junior campaign. She averaged an attack percentage of .479 and 3.00 kills between the two matches. In addition to her offensive efforts, McLaurin led the team in blocks each match, with eight against TCU and six against the Wildcats.
