Virginia's Stanwick And Maryland's Holmes Earned ACC Men's Lacrosse Weekly Honors Presented By Chevrolet
March 1, 2011
GREENSBORO, N.C. – Virginia junior attacker Steele Stanwick and Maryland sophomore midfielder Curtis Holmes have been named Atlantic Coast Conference Men’s Lacrosse Offensive and Defensive Players of the Week presented by Chevrolet, respectively, for the period ending on Monday, Feb. 28.
Stanwick scored eight goals and had seven assists for 17 total points on the week, helping the Cavaliers win two games, including an 11-10 overtime thriller at No. 5 Stony Brook. The junior from Baltimore, Md., had five goals and two assists at Stony Brook, including scoring the game-winner with 44 seconds left in overtime. Stanwick had his hand in seven of UVa’s 11 scores in the quality road win.
No one had a bigger impact on Maryland’s blowout victory over No. 14 Georgetown than Holmes, who dominated the face-offs. The Hoyas, who entered the game winning 61.3 percent of their face-offs on the season, didn’t have an answer for Holmes, who became the first Terrapin to win 20 or more face-offs in a game in 20 years. Four times in the game Maryland scored directly off the face-off. Holmes scored one of those goals himself and assisted on two others, which were his first career goal, assist and points. Holmes also picked up a game-high eight groundballs vs. the Hoyas. For the season, Holmes has won 37 of 52 draws for a 71.2 winning percentage.
