from press release

PROVIDENCE, R.I.
– Cody Jamieson of Syracuse and Brian Tabb of Georgetown were picked as the BIG EAST Offensive and Defensive Players of the Week, respectively, in the sport of men's lacrosse in the eighth week of the season.

Jamieson scored a career-high five points to lead the Orange to a 13-4 victory against No. 4/5 Princeton at the Konica Minolta Big City Classic in East Rutherford, N.J. on April 10. Jamieson tied his personal best with four goals. He also registered an assist in the second quarter. The senior attackman came alive at the start of the third quarter, scoring three straight goals to help break open the game. For his performance, he was voted the player of the game by the media in attendance. This is Jamieson's first BIG EAST weekly honor, and the seventh overall and third offensive accolade for Syracuse this season.

Tabb helped led Georgetown on the defensive end in a 2-0 week for the Hoyas, which included an 11-8 BIG EAST victory over national vote-getter Notre Dame on April 10. The junior midfielder won 51.4 percent of his face-off attempts and collected 12 ground balls. Against the Irish, Tabb won 10-of-20 attempts, including 5-of-7 in the second half, and picked up six ground balls. In an 11-6 home win over Mount St. Mary's on April 7, he also collected six ground balls, while winning nine face-off attempts. This is Tabb's first BIG EAST weekly honor, and the third overall and second defensive accolade for Georgetown this season.
