Feb. 7, 2017


COLUMBUS, Ohio – Miles Johnson has been re-upped as the MIVA Offensive Player of the Week, announced by the conference office on Tuesday (Feb. 7). The Buckeye’s second consecutive weekly honor comes on the strength of a .609 hitting percentage in two conference road victories at then-No. 12 Ball State and Fort Wayne.

Johnson averaged 5.17 kills per set while adding seven block assists and three aces to post a 6.25 points/set clip. He started off the week by blasting 19 kills on 29 attempts with a lone error (.621) vs. nationally-ranked Cardinals in a contest which broke a 47-yaer-old school record, acting at the Buckeyes’ 33rd straight win. He then followed up with a dozen more kills at Fort Wayne.

Ohio State has captured the conference’s offensive player of the week accolade in three of six weeks thus far this season. In one of the ‘off’ weeks, Gabriel Domecus ensured the Buckeyes would still be represented, picking up MIVA Defensive Player of the Week laurels.
