MILWAUKEE - Graduate attackman Jordan Greenfield became the first Marquette University men's lacrosse player to earn national weekly accolades after a six-goal outburst in the Golden Eagles' 11-10 overtime win at Richmond on Sunday.

Greenfield was named the Inside Lacrosse Player of the Week on Tuesday after winning an online fan ballot and followed that up with USILA Division I Offensive Player of the Week honors on Wednesday. He was also named BIG EAST Conference Offensive Player of the Week on Monday.

Trailing 8-4 entering the fourth quarter, Greenfield propelled the Golden Eagles with three goals in the frame to help Marquette force overtime. The Dover, Massachusetts native sent No. 17/16 Marquette to 3-0 on the season when he potted his first shot of the overtime period past Richmond goalie Benny Pugh.

Greenfield has led MU in points in each of its first three games, amassing 10 goals and five assists. He sits 13th nationally with 5.00 points per game and is 15th with 3.33 goals per contest.

The Golden Eagles resume action in Louisville, Kentucky when they play two games in three days against rv/- Detroit on Friday, Feb. 27 and rv/rv Ohio State on Sunday, March 1. Both games will be played at Owsley B. Frazier Stadium and hosted by Bellarmine University.
