Paula Gentil named VB Defensive Player of the Year
With her second-consecutive nod as the Big Ten Defensive Player of the Year, Gentil has put her stamp on the Conference's newest honor, introduced in 2001. The 5-9 sophomore libero broke the Big Ten record for digs-per-game in Conference play this season with her 5.10 average, passing the former mark of 5.06, set by Iowa's Janet Moylan in 1990. Additionally, Gentil's current overall average of 5.08 digs per game would eclipse the Big Ten record of 4.67, which she set last season. On Friday, November 28, Gentil broke the school record with a 33-dig outing against No. 11 Penn State. The previous single-match mark of 31 digs had stood since 1989 before Gentil tied it earlier this season.
