Senior Faith Carter earned Big Ten Offensive Player-of-the-Week recognition, announced by the conference on Tuesday.
Carter scored three goals in the final 16 minutes of Nebraska’s 4-3 come-from-behind overtime win over Indiana on Thursday night. The Omaha, Neb., native recorded the 34th hat trick in program history.
This season, Carter leads the Huskers with seven goals, which is also tied for the most by an individual in the Big Ten. She has 15 points (two points for a goal, one point for an assist) this season, which ranks second on the team and fifth in the conference. In her last six games, she has scored six goals.
Nebraska, ranked 18th in this week’s RPI, climbed to the top of the Big Ten standings with 10 points (three points for a win, one point for a tie) following its weekend sweep. The Huskers, who are 7-3-2 (3-0-1 Big Ten), enter this week’s road matches at Penn State and Ohio State on a five-match unbeaten streak.
