April 27, 2015
Senior setter Micah Christenson won his second consecutive Lloy Ball Award as the nation's top collegiate setter, sharing the honor in 2015 with Pepperdine's Matt West after being the sole recipient in the award's inaugural 2014 year.
Christenson, a 2014 All-American and four-year starter who set for the U.S. National Team that won the FIVB World League gold medal last year, ended the 2015 regular season seventh in the nation with a 10.59 assists per set average and he led the MPSF with 0.43 aces per set (11th nationally). He also was 12th in the nation in digs at 2.27 per set. He helped the Trojans to a fourth place finish in the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation and has guided them to a semifinal meeting against UC Irvine in this Thursday's (April 30) MPSF Tournament.
The voting committee for the Lloy Ball Award was comprised of more than 30 college men's volleyball head coaches and volleyball reporters from around the nation. The annual award is named after former U.S. Olympian and Indiana-Purdue Fort Wayne All-American setter Lloy Ball.
