For the second consecutive week, the No. 6 IU men's soccer team has landed at least one player on the Top Drawer Soccer Team of the Week.

It was announced Tuesday afternoon that senior defender Andrew Gutman earned first team honors and sophomore goalkeeper Trey Muse was an honorable mention.

Gutman had two goals and one assist on the weekend, including the game winner against No. 18 Connecticut on Sunday. Gutman was also named the National Player of the Week from College Soccer News on Monday.

Muse only had three saves against No. 18 UConn and none against No. 22 Dartmouth, but his performance in the Adidas/IU Credit Union Classic still picked up national attention. Against the Huskies, he was in a one-on-one situation, but made a sliding save with his right foot to keep IU on top.

The Hoosiers will take on VCU at Bill Armstrong Stadium on Friday night before traveling to South Bend to face No. 24 Notre Dame next Tuesday night.
