Grayson Barber and Sutton Jones named NCAA Players of the Week
Barber (Elgin, S.C.) had only one shot on goal last week, but it was a big one as he notched the game-winner in the 63rd minute of a 1-0 win over N.C. State. It was his first goal of the season and the fifth game-winning goal of his career.
Jones (Fort Mill, S.C.) did something no other Gamecock defender has done since 2014 as she recorded a brace in a 4-2 win over Florida. She scored the first and last goals of the game as South Carolina scored their most goals in a game against the Gators in program history, doubling her career goal total in the process.
Each Tuesday during the college regular season, United Soccer Coaches selects a men’s and women’s Player of the Week based on nominations from schools and conferences. Nominations are due every Tuesday by 10 a.m. CT to be considered.
