Garnet Valley, Pa., senior, attacker

The Scarlet Knights pulled off the biggest upset of the week, 13-12, in overtime against then-No. 9 Ohio State, and Barnes played a pivotal role. She scored a career-high six goals, tying the game twice and netting the winner. It was the first Big Ten Conference win for Rutgers this year and the first-ever at home. Barnes tied the game for the sixth and final time with 2:57 left in regulation and then scored the winner with 25 seconds left in the three-minute overtime period. She is second on the team with 30 goals and also has six assists.
