Women's Lacrosse Player of the Week (Feb. 12): Selena Lasota, Northwestern

Campbell River, B.C., sophomore, attacker

A member of Canada's world championship Under-19 team, Lasota scored five goals to help the No. 4 Wildcats win their season opener, 11-8, at No. 5 Duke. The Blue Devils led 5-2 before Lasota scored three times in a six-goal Northwestern run. Her back-to-back goals tied the game late in the first half, and her goal to open the second half gave the Wildcats a two-goal lead. Duke erased that, but when Northwestern pulled ahead again, Lasota's goal with 7:12 left gave it another two-goal edge, 10-8. The 2015 Big Ten Freshman of the Year and a second-team All-American, Lasota scored 69 goals last spring, a Wildcats freshman record.
