Creighton’s Davis earns 4th straight Big East Freshman of the Week Award

OMAHA, Neb. — Creighton Volleyball’s Keeley Davis has earned her fourth consecutive BIG EAST Freshman of the Week award, making her the first Creighton Volleyball player in history to be honored with a league award in four straight weeks.

Davis also becomes the only volleyball student-athlete since the reconfiguration of the BIG EAST in 2013 to win any league award four weeks in a row.

Davis led Creighton in kills and tied for first in aces during her first weekend of BIG EAST competition, averaging 3.71 points, 3.00 kills, 0.71 digs and 0.57 aces per set on .220 hitting.

The Highlands Ranch, Colo.,  native opened her week with eight kills, three digs and three service aces in a 3-0 sweep of Villanova.

She then had a team-best 13 kills, adding two digs, two blocks and an ace, in a 3-1 victory over Georgetown. Six of her 13 kills came in the fourth set, including each of CU’s final four points.

Davis leads the Bluejays with 126 kills and 14 aces this season.

The 14th-ranked Bluejays (9-3, 2-0 BIG EAST) start a four-match road swing this weekend with 6 p.m. Central contests at St. John’s (Friday) and at Seton Hall (Saturday).
