Pothast, Nortey Recognized By College Sports Madness

Eric Pothast joins MU teammate C. Nortey on the College Sports Madness Preseason All-BIG EAST Second Team

Aug. 17, 2012

MILWAUKEE - College Sports Madness released its preseason All-BIG EAST teams Friday with Marquette University junior Eric Pothast and sophomore C. Nortey being named to the second team.

Pothast, a two-year starter at central defender, is in his second year as a captain for the Golden Eagles. He will anchor MU's backline in 2012 as the squad defends its BIG EAST division title. Pothast played in 18 of Marquette's 19 games in 2011 with four points on a goal and an assist.

Nortey burst onto the scene as a freshman in 2011, leading the team with nine goals. The Ghanaian striker was a unanimous selection to the BIG EAST All-Rookie Team a year ago. Nortey was also chosen to the 2012 Preseason All-BIG EAST team and currently ranks No. 42 among college prospects on College Sports Madness' Draft Board.

Marquette opens the 2012 regular season on Friday, Aug. 24, at Valley Fields where they will host the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee.
