Brian Rowe Earns Bank of the West Honors
WALNUT CREEK, Calif. - UCLA redshirt senior goalkeeper Brian Rowe was named Bank of the West Pac-12 Men's Soccer Player of the Week for the week of November 8-14, Commissioner Larry Scott announced today.
The Eugene, Ore., native helped UCLA record its fifth-straight victory to end the regular season on a high note as the Bruins defeated San Diego State 2-0. Rowe faced 12 shots in the match and made five saves to earn his ninth shutout of the year, a single-season best for him. His nine shutouts were the most by a Bruin goalkeeper since Eric Reed had 12 in 2005. Rowe has a 0.82 goals against average on the season and finished Conference play with a 0.20 goals against average.
This is Rowe's first weekly honor and UCLA's 46th all-time Player of the Week.
The Bruins have a first-round bye in the NCAA Tournament and host Delaware or Virginia on Sunday, November 20 at 7 p.m. PT.
Also Nominated: Garrett Gunther, STAN; Jamie Finch, WASH.
