Liberty University setter Kallie Corbin has been honored as the New Balance Big South Freshman of the Week after leading the Lady Flames volleyball team to a 2-0 weekend and recording the first triple-double by a Big South player this season.
 
Corbin (Fr., S, Beaverton, Ore.) tallied 98 assists, 30 digs, 20 kills, nine blocks and a .391 attack percentage on the week as Liberty defeated conference rivals Coastal Carolina and Charleston Southern. The Lady Flames' pair of victories boosted the team into a tie for third place in the Big South standings at 3-2. 

Corbin got her weekend started with 45 assists, 13 digs, eight kills and four block assists in Friday evening's 3-1 victory over Coastal Carolina. Her triple-double came during Sunday's thrilling, 3-2 triumph over Charleston Southern. The freshman recorded the best single-match totals of her young career in assists (53), kills (12) and block assists (5), while adding 17 kills to complete the first triple-double by a Liberty player in over a year. Corbin's attack percentage against the Lady Buccaneers was a dazzling .407. 

Liberty will now step outside the conference for a Tuesday evening match at UNC Greensboro. Match time is set for 7 p.m. at Fleming Gym.
