Gregg Repeats as BIG EAST Defensive Player of the Week

Feb. 20, 2018

DENVER— For the second straight week, Carson Gregg has been named the BIG EAST Women’s Lacrosse Defensive Player of the Week, the conference announced Tuesday morning.

In Saturday’s game at Louisville, Gregg saved 10 of the 15 shots that she faced in 60 minutes of action, exceeding last week’s save percentage of .640 with a career-best .650 save percentage. The Severna Park, Md., native held the Cardinals to their lowest score through their first three games. 

On the season, she has a conference-best save percentage of .650 amongst starting goalkeepers, as well as a conference-best 7 goals against average. Her save percentage ranks sixth in the NCAA and her goals against average is tied for 10th-best in the country. With 26 saves on the season, she is tied for 11th in saves per game and 12th in total saves.

The sophomore has allowed just 14 goals on 55 shots faced, a rate of .255, and is the last defense on a corp that is holding opponents to 1-15 (.067) on free-position shots. The goalkeeper also has recorded five ground balls, which is tied for a team high.

UP NEXT:  The Pioneers play two games this week, starting with a home game on Feb. 23 at noon against San Diego State. On Sunday, Denver faces No. 2 ranked Stony Brook on the road, scheduled for 11 a.m. MT.
