Another week, and another bundle of weekly awards for the Florida volleyball team have come in, as junior All-American middle blocker Rhamat Alhassan and redshirt sophomore setter Allie Monserez were named SEC Defensive Player of the Week and SEC Setter of the Week, respectively, Monday.

Alhassan totaled 21 kills, hit .485, and amassed 13 blocks in UF's pair of sweeps last week. The Glenarden, Md. native averaged 2.17 blocks per set, nearly a half-block higher than her SEC-leading average of 1.52 blocks per set. Eight of her 13 blocks came at Georgia, marking the fourth time this season she logged eight-plus blocks in a match.

In UF's remarkably efficient offensive performance Sunday at Mississippi State, Alhassan posted a career-high .800 clip, totaling 13 kills and one error on 15 total attacks.

Monserez picked up her sixth SEC Setter of the Week laurel with yet another week of effective passing, keeping UF's offense flowing with few hitches en route to a .447 clip in its victories last week.
