Tuaniga Earns AVCA National Player of the Week Honors
After guiding Long Beach State to a dominant 2-0 week with a pair of home victories, senior Josh Tuaniga earned Sports Importa/AVCA National Player of the Week honors.
The southpaw quarterbacked the Beach offense to a program-record .655 hitting-percentage in the sweet of Stanford, which ranks third all-time in the NCAA record book.
Tuaniga also recorded 4,000 career assists in that match, to become just the fifth player in LBSU history to reach the milestone.
The following night against St. Francis, the 6-foot-3 setter led the Beach to a .471 attack percentage in a sweep of the Red Flash to finish off the week with a .556 team hitting percentage.
The senior added eight kills on nine attempts, six digs and three blocks.
The is the 30th time the Beach has received the honor and the first since TJ DeFalco earned the award on February 20th of the 2018 season.
