WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (Purdue Sports) — Following a pair of four-set wins at No. 24 Michigan, the Big Ten announced Hayley Bush as Big Ten Setter of the Week and Taylor Trammell the Big Ten Defensive Player of the Week.

Bush is one of three setters in program history to earn the weekly honor, having joined the ranks of All-Americans Val Nichol and Ashley Evans a season ago with her honor in September 2019. Meanwhile, Trammell's honor marks Purdue's first defensive player of the week accolade by a true freshman middle blocker since Kierra "KiKi" Jones received Co-Defensive honors twice in 2011 (redshirt-freshman Faye Adelaja was recognized in 2013).

Bush capped off a stellar weekend with 90 assists (48 assists on night one and 42 on night two), seven kills on 18 attempts while going errorless (.389 attack %). The weekend included a solo block that helped turn the tide for the Boilermakers in Sunday's fourth set, a critical point in the eventual set win. Bush also contributed a .538 attack % on the Valentine's Day matchup, with all seven of her kills coming in the four-set victory. Furthermore, the Union, Kentucky, product registered 22 total digs (11 each night) for a pair of double-doubles.

Additionally, Bush recorded her 3,000th career assist in Sunday's brawl at No. 24 Michigan to become just the 11th Boilermaker in program history to reach the milestone. The redshirt-junior is on track to enter the Purdue annals during the 2021 season (No. 10 in program history: 3,066 by Paula Harmon, 1991-93).

Trammell produced another career-setting weekend, with a career-high nine blocks (2 solo, 7 block assists) in the first night at No. 24 Michigan, which tied as the fifth-most blocks by a Big Ten player this season. Overall, Trammell led the team in Week Four with 16 total blocks and averaged 2.0 blocks per set (3 solo, 13 block assists). Offensively, the Lexington, Kentucky, freshman added 11 kills and just three errors on 24 swings (.333 attack %) over the weekend.

It is the second setter of the week honor in Bush's career and the first of its kind for Trammell.
