Player of the Week: Arizona's Penina Snuka

Arizona hit a season-high mark in digs against UCLA on Sunday. Senior setter Penina Snuka led that charge with 25, in addition to dishing out 45 assists in the Wildcats' five-set victory.

The two-time Honorable Mention All-American has led the Pac-12 in double-doubles each of the past three years, and so far in 2016, she's tallied 10. At the start of this season, she ranked fifth in program history in assists and fourth in digs, but as of last week, she has moved to second in program history in digs. At 5-foot-6, the Gilbert, Arizona, native is undersized, but she ranks fifth on the team with 28 blocks so far this season and more than makes up for her lack of height with athleticism and competitiveness.
