ACC Players of the Week

GREENSBORO, N.C. – North Carolina junior attackman Marcus Holman and sophomore midfielder R.G. Keenan have been named the ACC Men’s Lacrosse Players of the Week, announced by the conference office on Tuesday. It is the third weekly award this season for Keenan and the first for Holman.

Holman led North Carolina to a pair of home wins with 10 points – two goals and eight assists – in victories over Dartmouth and No. 6 Maryland. Against Dartmouth, he had a goal and a career-high five assists while matching his career high of six points. The Baltimore, Md., native assisted on all four goals scored in the second half. Three days later, Holman led the Tar Heel offense with a goal and three assists for a team-high four points and assisted on the game-tying goal by Nicky Galasso with 10:37 to play.

After having to leave the game in the first quarter against Dartmouth because of injury, Keenan came back and helped key an 11-10 conference win over Maryland. The Perry Hall, Md., native won 14-of-22 faceoffs in the game, including 6-of-8 in the fourth quarter as the Tar Heels outscored the Terrapins 5-3 to rally for the win. Keenan also had a game-high seven ground balls in the victory.
