Liberty freshman setter Kallie Corbin has been named the Big South Conference Choice Hotels Volleyball Player of the Week after recording triple-doubles in both of the Lady Flames' matches last week. 

Corbin (Beaverton, Ore.), who won a pair of Big South Conference New Balance Freshman of the Week honors earlier this season (10/9, 10/30), garnered the Player of the Week distinction for the first time. She tallied 11 kills, 48 assists, 20 digs and six blocks in a 3-2 setback against East Tennessee State. Corbin then notched a career-best 14 kills, sharing the team lead in that category, 45 assists, 20 digs and a pair of service aces in Saturday's 3-2, come-from-behind win at Radford. The freshman has now posted four triple-doubles this season. 

The setter is the Big South leader in aces per game (0.51), is seventh in assists per game (10.01) and ranks 10th in digs per game (3.61). 

Corbin is the second Lady Flame to be named Big South Player of the Week this season. Junior right-side hitter Mary Alice Pike (Durham, N.C.) earned the award on Sept. 18. 

Liberty (11-17, 9-5 BSC) earned the No. 3 seed in the Big South Volleyball Championship and the accompanying right to host a first-round match. No. 6 seed Coastal Carolina will visit the Vines Center Tuesday at 7 p.m. with the winner earning a spot in the Big South Championship semifinals at High Point, N.C., on Friday.
