DENVER – For the fifth time in her career, Idaho junior Allison (Walker) Baker has earned Western Athletic Conference Volleyball Player of the Week honors.

Baker, a two-time first-team All-WAC selection who has totaled double-digit kills in 32 consecutive matches and 63 in her career, set a new career-high with 29 kills in Idaho's four-set win over UTSA. Her 29-kill outburst was her sixth 20-plus kill match of the season. Baker hit .329 in that match, her second highest total of 2012. She also added 10 digs and four blocks against the Roadrunners. That match, coupled with her 19-kill, 12-dig performance in a 3-2 win over Texas State earlier in the week, gave her 11 double-doubles on the season. She averaged WAC bests of 5.83 points and 5.33 kills per set during the week as Idaho improved to 4-2 in WAC play.

Baker earned the award three times as a sophomore in 2011 and once as a freshman in 2010.
