Feb. 13, 2018

UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. – For the second straight week, Penn State men’s lacrosse was honored by the Big Ten as sophomore Mac O’Keefe was named the Big Ten Offensive Player of the Week for his performance against Hobart, as announced by the league office on Tuesday afternoon.

O’Keefe scored a team-best five goals against Hobart, adding an assist as well. The attackman added four ground balls and one caused turnover.

He scored three of Penn State's goals during a crucial second half 8-1 run that gave the Nittany Lions the lead and the win after being down 7-6 at the half. His assist came during that run as well.

This is the second-straight Big Ten Offensive Player of the Week honor for Penn State as Ryan Keenan was honored last week. Freshman Jack Kelly earned Freshman of the Week honors as well last week.

O’Keefe now has two career Big Ten Offensive Player of the Week honors, earning one in his freshman campaign (2/8/17).

Penn State continues its’ season-opening homestand with a 2 p.m. game against Stony Brook on Saturday, February 17. The game will be played outside at Panzer Stadium.
