On a three-game losing streak heading into the final week of the regular season, and trailing 2-0 in the first half of a crucial game, it looked like Penn State’s hope of a Big Ten title were done and dusted.

Enter the TDS Men’s Player of the Week Seth Kuhn.

With the Nittany Lions down 2-0 at home against Maryland, Kuhn helped flip that into a 3-2 win last Tuesday with a goal and the assist on the winner in overtime. That gave Penn State the chance to at least clinch a share of the regular season title with a win on Sunday at Wisconsin. Kuhn was back in action, scoring both goals in a 2-0 victory that recurred hardware for the program.

M Hendrik Hebbeker, Hofstra – Hebbeker provided a pair of goals as Hofstra moved one more win closer to a CAA regular season title. The 2-0 win against Elon down in North Carolina has set them needing a win next weekend against UNC Wilmington to officially clinch it.
