University of Hawai freshman outside hitter Sinisa “Siki” Zarkovic earned his second Mountain Pacific Sports Federation Molten Player of the Week following his performance in the Warriors’ two-match sweep of USC.
Zarkovic accumulated a two-match hitting clip of .429 (28-4-56) in the Warriors’ five-set wins over USC. In the first match, he served four of the team’s 12 aces, which was an MPSF team-high for a conference match this year. Two of the four aces were in set five, helping UH come back for a 3-2 win after a two-set deficit. That same night, he collected his third double-double of the season on 16 kills and 10 digs, while hitting .452.
Zarkovic is a repeat winner of this award in 2013, also earning it on Jan. 28 after leading UH to a sweep of Pepperdine. On the season, the freshman leads the team with a 2.93 kill average and ranks second in digs (1.40) and third in aces (16).
