Against New Orleans she again posted a match-high 12 kills and a team high three total blocks to go along with three digs. In the tournament finale, Potter posted 17 kills and eight digs en route to tournament MVP honors.
For the weekend she posted the 40 kills in 76 attempts with only 10 errors for a .395 hitting percentage. Her 4.44 kills per game currently leads the team, while her eight total blocks also leads the Broncos. She is also third on the team in digs per game with her 1.44 average.
