MACON, Ga. (Sept. 16, 2013) – For the third time in her career, ETSU senior outside hitter Megan Devine (Kingsport, Tenn.) received Atlantic Sun Player of the Week honors, which was announced by the league office on Monday.

Devine, the ETSU all-time leader in kills, totaled 80 kills, 43 digs, six blocks, and a .324 attack percentage (80-19-188) in four matches (16 total sets) last week for the Bucs. In addition, the Kingsport, Tenn. native tallied a pair of double-doubles, moving her career mark to 58.

On Saturday, Devine was phenomenal in ETSU’s four-set win at Tennessee. The reigning A-Sun Player of the Year recorded a career-high 27 kills and added 16 digs en route to registering the Bucs’ first win over the Lady Vols in 34 years. Devine also hit a season-best .404 (27-4-57) and tallied four blocks versus UT. Meanwhile, the 27 kills are the most by an A-Sun player in a four-set match and the second-most overall this season. Devine began the week with another impressive performance as she helped guide ETSU to a five-set come-from-behind win at Marshall after finishing with 23 kills and 16 digs against the Thundering Herd. The Buccaneer leader just missed recording a third double-double for the week as she ended with 18 kills (.382 attack percentage) and nine digs in a 3-1 win over in-state rival Austin Peay.

Devine and the Bucs return to action this Friday as ETSU opens A-Sun play at Mercer.

About Player of the Week
The following criteria are used by the Atlantic Sun Conference in selecting the A-Sun Players of the Week in each of the conference’s 20 sports. These criteria are used in no specific order and, in its groupings, one does not weigh more than the others:
• Statistics compiled during the week of competition
• The impact of that person’s efforts in meeting the team goals (i.e., game-winning shot, walk-off home run, etc.)
• Magnitude of the contest on the conference and national level (i.e., game meant championship, etc.)
• When individual participates in more than one game per week, how that individual performs in each of those games, effecting team performance goals
• Level of competition faced by each individual
• Each week’s performance will be considered on its own merit
• Other pertinent factors (i.e., career milestones; program, conference and/or national records)
