Following a career-best effort in IU’s 3-0 shelling of No. 13 Kentucky on Sept. 29, junior forward Andy Adlard collected his first weekly conference honor when he was named this week’s co-Big Ten Offensive Player of the Week.
Adlard, who scored two goals against the Wildcats, lost his starting spot earlier in the week due to poor play and came off the bench late in the first half.
Adlard’s three shots in Friday’s 3-0 loss against No. 11 University of Cal-Santa Barbara led the Hoosiers, offensively.
He shares the offensive honor with Penn State junior midfielder Matheus Braga.
The Hoosiers, who stand at 5-3-1 (1-0 Big Ten), return home to play host to the 6-1-1 Butler Bulldogs. The match, will be the first non-ranked opponent IU faces at home.
