CHICAGO - The day after leading DePaul to a big victory, Elise Wyatt was recognized by the BIG EAST Conference.
Wyatt was named Monday to the league's Weekly Honor Roll after scoring two goals and practically scoring a third in Sunday's 4-0 nonconference win over Saint Louis.
The sophomore forward from British Columbia, Canada scored the first goal of the match in the 29th minute during a scrum in front of the Billiken net.
After Ashleigh Goddard had given the Blue Demons a 2-0 lead, Wyatt delivered a strong cross that deflected off a Saint Louis player into the net.
To finish off her day, Wyatt scored in the 66th minute after a nifty pass from freshman Ana Greik.
As a freshman, Wyatt led DePaul with five goals in 2012.
BIG EAST Offensive Player of the Week Rachel Daly of St. John's had three goals and two assists in a 2-0 week for the Red Storm. The sophomore notched a hat trick in the first 21 minutes of play in a 5-0 win Sunday against Fordham. She had both assists in a 2-1 win against Delaware in the season opener.
Georgetown's Emily Menges was selected BIG EAST Defensive Player of the Week while Diana Poulin of St. John's was named Goalkeeper of the Week. Xavier's Tori Doss was the BIG EAST Rookie of the Week.
DePaul is at Ohio for a 3 p.m. match on Friday before returning to Chicago for its home opener at 1 p.m. Sunday against the College of Charleston.
