PERRY HALL, N.Y. – Men's lacrosse junior Kyle Tucker has been named the BSN Sports / United States Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association South Region's Defensive Player of the Week, the USILA announced Wednesday.
Tucker had a great week for the Gulls as a lockdown defender and part of the defensive unit that held No. 4 York College of Pennsylvania to just one goal by halftime en route to a 15-5 win. The win gave SU its 20th Capital Athletic Conference title and a berth into the 2017 NCAA men's lacrosse tournament. Tucker's stat line consisted of three groundballs and a game-high four caused turnovers.
The national honor comes on the heels of Tucker being selected as a first-team member of the 2017 All-CAC team for the second-straight season.
Salisbury will now wait for the Sunday, May 7 NCAA selection show where it will learn where its title defense will begin. The selection show is set for 9 p.m.
