Duke's James Belshaw Named NSCAA Player of the Week

Sept. 19, 2012

KANSAS CITY, Mo.  – Duke senior goalkeeper James Belshaw was selected as this week’s Disney Soccer/NSCAA National Player of the Week.

Belshaw played in instrumental role in two Duke shutouts against Georgia State (3-0) and Clemson (2-0) last week. In addition to his six saves in the Blue Devils’ first conference win against the Tigers, the Nottingham, England native scored his first career goal as he converted a penalty kick in the 71st minute.

His efforts last week also earned him ACC Player of the Week and TopDrawerSoccer Team of the Week honors.

The Disney Soccer/NSCAA National Players of the Week are announced every Wednesday. One male and one female player is selected by a committee from nominations submitted by NCAA Division I conferences.

Winners will also be recognized during Friday’s NSCAA College Game of the Week broadcasts on FOX Soccer.
