  0 Wendy Mayer | November 27th, 2018 | ACC, Big East, Big Ten, College - Women's Indoor, Division I Mid-Major, News, SEC

This week’s VolleyMob Player of the Week truly impacted all sides of the ball for her team – hitting, setting, digging and blocking – in two victories which helped cement her team’s at-large berth to the NCAA Tournament.

Duke setter/outside hitter Andie Shelton averaged 5.7 assists, 2.9 kills, 1.8 digs and 1.10 blocks per set on a .377 hitting clip, while guiding the Blue Devils to a .287 effort in a pair of five-set wins.

The graduate student posted 31 assists, 12 kills, seven digs, five blocks and an ace on a .370 hitting effort against Notre Dame as the team hit .250. The Stockton, California, native notched a 26-assist, 17 kill, 11 dig triple double to go with six blocks and two aces and a .382 hitting effort against Miami as the team hit .322. The triple double was her sixth of the season, leading all of NCAA Division I in the category. Shelton earned ACC Player of the Week honors for her efforts, making her the first Blue Devil to earn multiple conference nods in the same season since 2013 (following a Sept. 3 award).
