The usual names are on the list, like AVCA national player of the week Dana Rettke, who had a great week for Wisconsin, to some you never heard of if you don’t follow all 32 conferences. And a lot of the leagues have new winners this week.

We’ve got the POWs and the complete list follows, but first a look at Tuesday in NCAA Division I women’s volleyball.

There are 11 matches on the schedule, including some non-conference affairs.

Two league matches of note show Big South leader High Point playing host to Presbyterian and Montana State of the Big Sky home for Montana State.

A list of all of Tuesday matches can be found at NCAA.com.

As always, VolleyballMag.com has the TV and streaming listings for every NCAA Division I match that is being shown.

Back to the POWs. With 31 of 32 conferences — we’re waiting on the SWAC — from the ACC to the West Coast Conference — reporting, this is your weekly POW roundup.

You can look forward every Tuesday to the VolleyballMag.com roundup of the POWs around the country.
