Virginia's Potter Named ACC Player of the Week
CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va.-- Virginia junior Beth Potter (Swarthmore, Pa./Ridley) was named the ACC player of the week for the week of April 7.
Potter leads the Cavaliers in goals, assists, and points and ranks in the top four of the conference in each of these catagories as well. Her 25 goals ranks third and her 12 assists ranks her tied for fourth in the conference.
Last week Potter turned in a pair of hat tricks against seventh-ranked James Madison and ACC-rival Duke, including the game-winner against the Dukes. Her five-point total matched her best scoring output of the year and helped the Cavaliers secure an integral south regional win. She followed that performance with a three-goal, one-assist game against the Blue Devils on Saturday, helping Virginia earn its first ACC win.
For the second season in a row, Potter is leading the team in assists. She currently has 12, which gives her 43 for her career, which is the fifth-best total in school history. Potter needs only three to move into third place. In addition, Potter's 37 points this year have helped her surpass the century mark in points, which she reached with the game-winner she scored against Villanova two weeks ago. Potter currently has 110 points, good enough for 13th place on the Cavaliers' all-time chart. Interestingly, she trails by one point Erin Stewart, currently the assistant coach for Loyola, the team the Cavaliers next face. The game against the Greyhounds is to take place on Wednesday, April 16. Game time is 3:00 pm.
