AUSTIN, Texas - Texas freshman middle blocker Khat Bell has been named the Big 12 Rookie of the Week after leading the Longhorns to a 3-0 victory over Texas A&M last week. The award is the second Big 12 weekly honor of her career.
The Mesquite, Texas, native played her first collegiate match at middle blocker against the Aggies and headlined the Horns' attack with a career-best .611 hitting percentage and a team-high 4.00 kills and 5.00 points per-set. She added two service aces in the win and chipped in four digs and a pair of blocks.
Bell and her Texas teammates return to action on Wednesday, Oct. 12 when they host Texas Tech. First serve is set for 7 p.m. Central on Longhorn Network.
