Northwestern sophomore midfielder Selena Lasota was dubbed the Big Ten Offensive Player of the Week by the conference Tuesday after she scored a career-high 8 goals in her last game against Ohio State.
The sophomore recorded a hat trick in the first half of the team’s game against the Buckeyes and proceeded to add another 5 goals in the second half. Lasota’s performance marked the most goals scored by a player in the Big Ten this season.
This is the third time Lasota has been named the Big Ten Offensive Player of the Week, earning it once already this season.
The Wildcats face Michigan on Thursday in the first round of the Big Ten Tournament in Evanston. The team must win to qualify for the NCAA Tournament.
