AUSTIN, Texas – Junior Cat McCoy has been named Big 12 Defensive Player of the Week, the Big 12 Conference announced on Monday.

It marks McCoy's first weekly honor this season as she set a Big 12 season-high 29 digs in UT's five-set match at Iowa State on Saturday.

She notched over 42 digs in the Longhorns' two matches for 5.25 per set, averaging 4.83 for the month of November.

The honor is Texas' eighth of the season as junior Ebony Nwanebu was named Offensive Player of the Week once and freshman Micaya White has earned Freshman Player of the Week honors six times.
