Florida Atlantic's Kelly Paiva is on a roll. The Atlantic Sun conference office announced on Monday that the senior earned A-Sun Player-of-the-Week honors for the third consecutive week.

For the third week, Paiva (Minas Gerais, Brazil) earned MVP honors at a tournament. The senior outside hitter tallied a career-high 34 kills against Eastern Washington in four games and finished the weekend with 67 kills (6.60 kills/game) and a .331 hitting percentage. She added 27 digs and five blocks as she guided the Owls to a 9-0 record, the program's best start in Division I. The team defeated USF, Eastern Washington and Appalachian State.

Entering the weekend she was ranked 27th in the nation with 5.17 kills per game and raised the number to 5.64 after the three wins. She leads the Atlantic Sun Conference in kills, kills per game and points.
