Yvette Cho '19 - 2nd team All-UAA

WALTHAM, Mass. – Brandeis University junior libero Yvette Cho of San Diego, California, has been named a second-team All-University Athletic Association (UAA) team member by the conference's coaches.

Cho leads the Judges in digs with 481, while her 5.06 digs per set rank third in the UAA. She also leads Brandeis with 47 service aces, and ranks second in the UAA with 0.49 service aces per set. Earlier this season she became the 14th player in school history with 1,000 career digs and currently sits sixth on the career list with 1,389. She boasts two seasons in her career with more than 400 digs, one of five Judges to perform that feat, while her 5.06 digs per set is on pace to be a Brandeis single-season record.

Cho has only missed three sets all season long, playing 95 of a possible 98. She has been a key piece of the Judges' 15-14 record and first post-season berth since 2012. Brandeis takes on Brooklyn College (17-14) this evening in the first round of the Eastern College Athletic Conference tournament. With a first-round win, Brandeis will clinch its first winning season since 2012.

Cho is the first Brandeis player to earn All-UAA honors of any type since 2012, when Liz Hood '15 was an honorable mention selection. She is the program's first second-team All-Association selection since 2009, when Paige Blasco '11 was honored.

Cho is a 2015 graduate of Rancho Bernardo High School.
