Stucker also had 32 digs (2.46 digs per set) and two service aces in 13 sets played.

In the Govs come-from-behind win at Middle Tennessee, Wednesday, Stucker was credited with 50 assists (10.0 per set) and 11 digs for a double-double performance. Two days later, she had 45 assists (9.00 per set) and 12 digs in a five-set loss at Belmont for her team-leading 11th double-double this season.

Stucker finished the week with a 36-assist (12.0 per set) outing in a three-set win at Tennessee State that saw the Govs post a .374 attack percentage (their third best effort in 2016).

It is the third time this season Stucker has earned at least a share of the league’s weekly setter award. She shared last week’s honor and was named Setter of the Week alone, September 19th.

Austin Peay has won seven weekly OVC awards this season with junior Ashley Slay and sophomore Cecily Gable each earning an offensive nod while junior Kaitlyn Teeter has twice earned the league’s newcomer honor. Those seven honors are one shy of the team record set by the 2010 squad.

Austin Peay again has three matches on its schedule this week, starting with a 5:30pm, Tuesday nonconference tilt against Alabama A&M at the Dunn Center. The Govs then close out the road portion of their 2016 slate when they travel to UT Martin and Southeast Missouri for OVC matches, Friday and Saturday, respectively.
