The Euless, Texas, native paced Arkansas with a .475 hitting percentage that included 20 kills and only one hitting error. She had eight blocks as well at the Virginia Tech Invitational.
Anderson was limited in the first match, playing in the first set but still averaged 2.50 points-per-set for the weekend. Anderson did not commit a hitting error in either of the first two matches and was in double-digits with 10 kills in the third match of the weekend.

"This is a great honor," Anderson said after learning of her selection. "I’m excited about the award. It shows that all of the hard work is paying off and it helps inspire me to continue working hard. Coach told me that I had been selected and it helps fire me up even more for tonight’s match."
Anderson leads the Razorbacks into action tonight when they take on Tulsa in Reynolds Arena. Arkansas wraps up their non-conference schedule this weekend hosting the Arkansas Invitational.
