    PROVIDENCE, R.I. – University of Connecticut middle blocker Immanuella Anagu (Culver City, Calif.) was named the American Athletic Conference Defensive Player of the Week, as announced by the conference on Monday.

The middle blocker posted back-to-back double-digit block performances against Central Connecticut and Indiana on Saturday and also led all players in The American’s first weekend of play with 1.85 blocks per set.
