TCU Muscle Milk Athletes of the Week

Nov. 30, 2016

FORT WORTH, Texas -- Vladimir Brodziansky of men's basketball and Ashley Smith of women's volleyball have been named TCU's Muscle Milk Athletes of the Week based on impressive performances on the court.

Brodziansky had quite the week in leading TCU to the Global Sports Classic Championship. He opened the tournament scoring a career-high 24 points on 7-of-8 shooting from the field, including a career-high 10-of-13 from the free throw line. Even more impressive though is that coming off the bench, the Slovakian did it all in just 24 minutes of action. He came back to tally 14 points and three blocks against host UNLV and then posted a 12-point outing to help TCU claim championship accolades over Washington. For the week, he averaged 16.6 points per game and shot 62.5 percent from the field, while also averaging 5.7 rebounds a game.

The Horned Frogs return to action on Wednesday night at 6 p.m. to take on Washington in the Ed and Rae Schollmaier Arena.

Smith, a native of League City, Texas, closed out the regular season on a high note as the Frogs won three-straight matches to close out the regular season. Against West Virginia, Smith added to her illustrious career by recording her 31st double-double with 10 kills and 16 digs and also reached 1,000 career digs to make her the fifth person in program history to reach 1,000 in career kills and digs. TCU topped the Mountaineers 3-2 (25-15, 26-28, 25-21, 18-25, 15-9) in the regular season finale.

For the first time in program history, TCU women's volleyball will play in the postseason in back-to-back years as they earned an at-large selection to the 2016 NCAA Division I Volleyball Championships. The Frogs will take on Witchita State (24-7, 15-3 MVC) at 4:40 p.m. CST in Lincoln, Neb., on Friday, Dec. 2.
