Rogers and Winter Earn BIG EAST Men's Lacrosse Player of the Week Honors

Senior attackman Sean Rogers from Notre Dame earned BIG EAST Offensive Player of the Week, while senior goalkeeper Matt Winter from Georgetown was named BIG EAST Defensive Player of the Week.

Rogers tallied a game-high four points on three goals and one assist in a 10-7 win at Villanova, giving the Irish at least a share of the BIG EAST regular-season title. All three of Rogers' goals occurred during Notre Dame's 8-0 run, which reversed Villanova's 4-0 lead. He completed the hat trick by giving Notre Dame its first lead of the game (5-4). He assisted on the final goal of the game. The game was Rogers' third four-point game of the season.

Winter made 12 saves, including two within the last minute of the game, to help Georgetown hold on for a 10-8 win against No. 14/15 Syracuse. The victory is just the Hoyas' second in the Carrier Dome and first since 2006 against Syracuse.
