CINCINNATI – Xavier University senior midfielder Matt Walker (Batavia, Ohio/Batavia) was named BIG EAST Conference Player of the Week for his performances in XU’s two matches last week, the conference office announced on Monday afternoon (Sept. 19).

Walker registered a pair of goals to go with two assists as the Musketeers went 2-0 on the week, with wins over UC Irvine (2-0) and Kentucky (2-1). In the win over the Anteaters, who recently upset No. 16 Louisville, Walker tallied the game-winning goal and picked up an assist on the Blue and White’s second score of the match. Against UK on Saturday, Sept. 14, the senior scored the first goal of the game and also assisted on the game-winner. Walker now leads the team with three goals, four assists and 10 points.

The Musketeers, 2-3-0, host Division II opponent Cedarville on Tuesday at 7 p.m. at the Xavier Soccer Complex.
