Maryland men’s lacrosse’s Luke Wierman was named the Big Ten Specialist of the week, the conference announced on Tuesday. This is the second consecutive week and fourth time this season the face-off specialist has been given the award.
In Maryland’s convincing 18-7 victory over Penn State on Sunday night, Wierman went 16-for21 on face-offs and scooped up 10 ground balls. He also scored his fifth goal of the season against the Nittany Lions.
Wierman has been an absolute force on face-offs, winning 68.4% of them this season, good for the second-highest in the country.
Wierman has four games with double-digit ground balls and 63 total on the season. He also has five games this season with at least 16 face-off victories.
The Terps are back in action this Saturday against Michigan as they look to complete a perfect season with four regular season games remaining.
