Kensinger, Pemberton Named Pac-12 Pair of the Week

SAN FRANCISCO – Following two ranked wins, the No. 1 duo of sophomore Daniella Kensinger and junior Anya Pemberton are the Pac-12 Pair of the Week, the first for Sun Devil Beach Volleyball since 2019. 

This is the second pair of the week award in team history and first since 2019 when Ashley Wenz and Oluoma Okaro won on March 19. 

As a pair, Kensinger and Pemberton had an incredibly strong weekend, going 3-1 all against ranked opponents (No. 2 Stanford, No. 7 Cal, No. 19 Arizona). Not only did they get those three wins, but all three wins were in straight sets. Against the Wildcats, they won an intense 30-28 second set to get the sweep, which was the third-longest set in program history and was the longest set that the Sun Devils won.

It was a monumental week for Arizona State (8-2) as the team took down No. 2 Stanford, which is the highest ranked win in program history. Additionally, ASU beat in-state rival No. 19 Arizona for the third-straight time at home. The Sand Devils have the best record through 10 games in team history and have five ranked wins on the year (the most in a single season in ASU history).
