Player of the Week: Jabarry Goodridge


Jabarry Goodridge, a Junior of NJIT has won the VolleyMetrics Player of the Week award. Goodridge put up impressive numbers in his three matches this past week against Rutgers – Newark, George Mason and McKendree. The AVCA selected BYU’s Ben Patch as their Player of the Week. Let’s see how our VolleyMetrics Ratings compares the two:



Although the players’ overall scores were very close, each player received a high over
all rating for different reasons. Goodridge serving and blocking scores exceeded Patch’s scores by at least 3 points, while Patch scored an impressive 9.20 in attacking. Both had similar scores for passing and digging.



Ben Patch put up an impressive attacking box score as he averaged 5.57 K/S while hitting .456 over the weekend, including a monstrous .700 in BYU’s first match against Hawaii. He also added in 7 block assists and 9 digs. Despite these good numbers, Jabarry had an overall serving percentage of .811, while contributing 9 aces with just 10 serving errors. Ben Patch had 0 aces and 9 errors in two matches, giving him a serving percentage of .471.


Both players had great weeks and are deserving of their awards. VolleyMetrics wishes both players luck in the upcoming week. Goodridge and the NJIT Highlanders won their Tuesday game against Holy Names, and look to try to finish off the week 3-0 as they face Charleston over the weekend. Patch and BYU have two home games against Pepperdine this weekend as they look to add to their 12-game win streak.

We’ve analyzed attacking efficiency, side out percentage, and many others, but they have finally found the highest correlation: serving. Serving is one of the most basic skills in volleyball. Every point begins with a serve, and teams can get a big …
