The award is the first of the season for either player, who combined for a 2-0 doubles record with set scores of 6-3 and 6-4 against Illinois State and Northern Illinois this past weekend.
Kruse, a junior from Flensburg, Germany, ranks fifth on the all-time list for doubles wins in a season from his 2018 campaign at 10 victories. Izadifar, junior from Tonsberg, Norway, has surpassed his win total on the 2019 season from last year, as he posted a 1-9 doubles record in 2018.
Looking back at the 2018 season, the last time a UMKC player won a WAC Player of the Week award came from Airam Castellano back on April 24th.
The Roos will next take on Oral Roberts in Tulsa, Okla., on Saturday, Feb. 9th at 4 p.m. CT.
