After netting the game-winner against then-ranked No. 3 North Carolina, sophomore midfielder A.J. Palazzolo was named the Big Ten Offensive Player of the Week on Tuesday afternoon.
In the 87th minute, senior midfielder Trevor Swartz sent a free kick to the far-right post, and Palazzolo headed in the goal from four yards out.
It was his first career goal after suffering a season-ending knee injury in 2017.
