Prokudina And Johnson Named Athletes Of The Week

September 5, 2017

         

Sophomore Polina Prokudina had another outstanding weekend as she was named to the all-tournament team at the Seton Hall Classic.  Prokudina began the weekend with 18 kills and a career-high 20 digs in a five-set match at Seton Hall.  She added four assists and a pair of blocks against the Pirates.  In the five set win over Rutgers, UB’s first over a Big Ten program, she recorded 26 kills, the second time in five matches this season that she has recorded at least 26 kills.  She had just six errors as she hit .426 for the match against the Scarlet Knights.  Overall, she averaged 4.40 kills per set and 4.75 points per set for the week.

             

It was quite a debut for Anthony Johnson as the junior wide receiver, playing in his first game for the Bulls, had 11 receptions for 140 yards and a touchdown against Minnesota in the season opener. Johnson’s 11 catches were two shy of the single-game school record. He had 8 catches for 115 yards in the first half alone. In the second quarter, Johnson had a 50-yard reception ad followed with 16-yard touchdown reception on the very next play. Four of his 11 catches in the game went for more than 10 yards.
