Ohio State's Steven Kehoe Named the Sports Imports/American Volleyball Coaches Association Division I-II National Player of the Week

COLUMBUS, Ohio Ohio State men’s volleyball setter Steven Kehoe has been named the Sports Imports/American Volleyball Coaches Association Division I-II National Player of the Week and the MIVA Offensive Player of the Week for his play last week in the 3-1 (30-25, 20-30, 30-27, 30-23) road victory at sixth-ranked Penn State.

Kehoe directed the Buckeye offense to a .283 attack percentage, well above the .220 season average for Penn State opponents. He recorded 54 assists (13.50 per game) in the contest adding seven digs, four kills and one assist block. The victory was OSU’s first in the last nine matches against Penn State, including two losses earlier this season (3-1 in Hawaii and 3-0 in Columbus). Kehoe directed a balanced offense that produced 19 kills from Shawn Sangrey, 16 from John Klanac and 15 from Jason Tobkin. The Ohio State victory was the first Penn State loss in Rec Hall since the end of the 2006 season. The win stopped a home winning streak of 51 matches for Penn State.

Ohio State (13-7 overall, 6-1 MIVA) continues an east coast road trip tonight with a 7 p.m. contest at George Mason (5-11).
