Men's college lacrosse: Rutgers' Bieda, Loyola's Limone named Players of the Week
Every week during the regular season, we’ll award an NCAA.com Offensive and Defensive Player of the Week for Division I men’s lacrosse.
Offensive Player of the Week
Scott Bieda | Rutgers | Sr. | A | Bridgewater, N.J.
Bieda totaled a career-high nine points, matching his career high with five goals, in Rutgers’ 19-11 victory over St. John’s on Feb. 12. His nine points were the most scored in a game by a Scarlet Knight since 2006 and ranked sixth on the school’s all-time single-game points ranks. Bieda also contributed three ground balls and four assists.
Defensive Player of the Week
Grant Limone | Loyola | So. | GK | Weston, Conn.
Limone led a Loyola defense that stifled then-No. 7 Virginia in its season opener, collecting 14 saves. Despite outshooting Loyola 40 to 33, the four goals scored by the Cavaliers where their fewest in a game since 2005 – a stretch of 172 contests. Limone also tallied three ground balls and assisted on one Loyola goal for his first career offensive point.
