Carroll (Forster, Australia), a three-time AVCA All-American first teamer, was previously named the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation’s Player of the Year and the MPSF Tournament MVP earlier this week. With only this weekend’s NCAA Championships yet to be played, Carroll should end up as the nation’s kill leader for the second straight year. more@Pepperdine

    This is a spectacular achievement for Paul. I know that the level of men’s college volleyball gets criticised but let me tell you the good players here are very very good, and Paul is the best of them. In my mind he has made a much smarter long term choice than just going straight to Europe after high school and the AIS. Would he be a better player if he went straight to Europe instead of coming to the US? Hard to argue one way or the other, lets just say that he has probably set himself up a lot better than most by at least getting a degree. We all know that your professional career can be tenuous at best (one knee away from obscurity)so at least he has something to fall back on, and hopefully he never needs to.
