Jade Demps and Lauren Barnes were honored by the Big Ten Conference for their play in the University of Wisconsin volleyball team’s two wins over the state of Michigan.

Barnes, a 5-foot-6 senior free, was named Defender of the Week for the second time this season after averaging 5.14 digs per set against the Spartans. He had 28 career shots in Sunday’s four-set match.

Demps, a 6-2 outside hitter, was named Freshman of the Week after averaging 3.57 kills per set and hitting .500. She is the first Badgers player to win freshman honor from Dana Rettke in 2017.

The Badgers (10-0) maintained their top spot in the American Volleyball Coaches Association’s weekly poll, once again receiving 51 of the top 60 votes. Nebraska, UW’s opponent this Friday and Saturday, remained at No. 4 after splitting their games against Minnesota’s No. 5 last weekend.
