O'Reilly Named ACC Offensive Player of the Week

Nick O'Reilly

Feb. 19, 2013

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. – Virginia junior attackman Nick O’Reilly has been named the Atlantic Coast Conference’s offensive player of the week, as announced Tuesday by the conference office.

Making his first appearance for Virginia since the 2011 NCAA title game, O’Reilly dished out a career-high six assists and scored two goals for a career-high eight points. His sixth assist was on Matt White’s game-winning goal 11 seconds into overtime, helping the Cavaliers to the 13-12 win over Drexel.  O’Reilly assisted three of White’s game-high four goals.

O’Reilly scored his two goals back-to-back in the first quarter to help Virginia out to a 3-0 lead. Five of his assists either tied the game or gave the Cavaliers a one-goal advantage, including the game-winner.  The native of Rockville Centre, N.Y., also had a team-high six ground balls, matching a game high.

This is the first weekly ACC award of O’Reilly’s career and the first for Virginia this season. The Cavaliers return to action tonight against VMI at Klöckner Stadium. Faceoff is slated for 7 p.m. UVa then travels to Stony Brook of the America East Conference on Saturday for a noon tilt.

Joining O’Reilly, Maryland’s Michael Ehrdhardt earned this week’s ACC defensive player of the wee accolades.
