Men’s lacrosse National Player of the Week (May 1): George Baughan, Princeton

George Baughan, Princeton, freshman

Wyndmoor, Pa., defenseman

The Tigers were left out of the Ivy League tournament despite a 14-8 upset of then-No. 6 Cornell on Saturday, but it does not dismiss what Baughan did. The 6-foot-1, 195-pound rookie caused a game-high four turnovers and scooped up four ground balls. More importantly, Baughan shut out Big Red sophomore attackman Jeff Teat, who took only one shot and turned the ball over five times. The last time Teat — who entered the game leading Division I in points per game (6.7) — finished a game without a point was March 5, 2017, in a 17-6 loss to Albany. Baughan even outscored Teat, lodging his first career goal with 5:38 left in the first quarter to give Princeton a 3-2 lead that it would not relinquish.
