Maryland men’s soccer redshirt senior defender Nick Richardson was named Big Ten Defensive Player of the Week following a successful week in Big Ten play, as the Terps tied Penn State, 3-3, and earned a 1-0 win over No. 13 Ohio State.

Richardson had a tremendous impact in both matchups. Against Penn State, Richardson netted his second goal of the season on an impressive shot in the first half.

Against the Buckeyes, Richardson played outstanding defense while helping lead the Terps to their first shutout of the season. This was the first time Maryland has shut out the Buckeyes since 2019.

Richardson joins teammates William Kulvik, Niklas Neumann and Chris Rindov in earning the award this season.

Maryland will look to continue its impressive play on Friday against Old Dominion at 7 p.m. in College Park. The game will be broadcast on BTN Plus.
