PROVIDENCE, R.I. - Connecticut and Syracuse won the season's fifth BIG EAST field hockey Player of the Week honors. UConn freshman Chloe Hunnable was named BIG EAST Offensive Player of the Week and SU junior Iona Holloway was named BIG EAST Defensive Player of the Week.
Hunnable helped the Huskies to a 4-0 victory over Providence on Sept. 24. She ignited the offense, scoring the last three goals of the game and notching the first hat trick of her career, becoming the first player to score three goals in a league game this season. She leads Connecticut's offense with seven goals and 16 points on the year.
Holloway led the Orange to a 2-0 record last week, including a 2-1 overtime victory at No. 19 Louisville and a 3-2 win vs. No. 17 Boston University. She helped the defense limit the Cardinals to eight shot attempts and the Terriers to only four shot attempts. Holloway also scored her first goal of the season in the Orange's victory over BU.
The BIG EAST schedule features one top-20 game during the upcoming week with No. 19 Louisville travelling to No. 4 Connecticut on Oct. 1. Two additional BIG EAST games are scheduled this week. Georgetown will travel to Rutgers and No. 5 Syracuse will host Providence, both on Sept. 30.
