March 23, 2010

GREENSBORO, N.C. – North Carolina sophomore Jimmy Dunster was named Atlantic Coast Conference Men’s Lacrosse Player of the Week for the period ending March 21, announced today. Dunster combined for nine points on four goals and five assists, as the Tar Heels claimed two wins, including a one-goal decision over nationally-ranked Princeton, and improved to 8-0 for the first time since 1993.

Against the fifth-ranked Tigers, Dunster scored twice and registered career-highs of three assists and five points in leading the No. 4 Tar Heels to a 12-11 edging of Princeton in a battle of top-five teams (March 16). Dunster’s second assist of the day led to Cryder DiPietro’s game-winning goal with just 2:10 remaining. The Cos Cob, Conn., native added two scores and a pair of assists in North Carolina’s 15-6 rout of Dartmouth (March 19), and was one of 10 Tar Heels to score and one of nine to record an assist.

North Carolina returns to action on Saturday, March 27 when it hosts nationally-ranked conference rival Maryland in an ESPNU televised game at 2 p.m.
