Men's Lacrosse Player of the Week (May 26): Kyle Bernlohr, Maryland

Akron, Ohio, senior, goalkeeper
The top-seeded Terps advanced to their third consecutive NCAA tournament semifinal thanks to a critical defensive effort backed by Bernlohr. The 5-foot-10, 160-pound goalie made a career-high 15 saves in Saturday's 13-7 victory over No. 8 seed Syracuse in the quarterfinals at Brown Stadium in Providence. Bernlohr, who made five stops and allowed just one goal in the fourth quarter, helped end redshirt senior attackman Dylan Donahue's streak of 41 games with at least one goal — which had been the longest in Division I. Currently ranked sixth in the country in goals-against average (7.63) and 15th in save percentage (.552), the 2015 first-team All American has surrendered more than 10 goals only two times in 51 appearances.
