This season, USA Lacrosse will celebrate the accomplishments of players across Divisions I, II and III each Tuesday with Player of the Week recognition.

Players of the Week are selected by USA Lacrosse Magazine staff and contributors based on a variety of factors, including individual performance and impact on team success.


Matt Brandau, Yale

It was a banner week for Matt Brandau, who became Yale's all-time leader in points and assists on April 9 with three goals and eight assists in a win over Boston U. He followed that with a stellar performance against Dartmouth, producing four goals and five assists.

A 20-point week and a couple all-time program marks gives Brandau the edge for Division I Player of the Week.


Nate Senez, Limestone

In a key conference bout with Wingate, Senez led the way with two goals and six assists in a 17-14 win. Five of those points came in the first half.

The junior attackman has been a distributor all season, leading the Saints with 32 assists and 47 points.


Luke Murphy, RPI

Murphy is becoming a fixture in this space. He tied his season high with six goals in a 16-12 win over Union, scoring both of RPI's fourth-quarter goals to ensure the Engineers didn't have to sweat this one out.

Murphy has 46 goals and 18 assists this season.
