PROVIDENCE, R.I. - For the second straight week, UConn redshirt freshman Scott Levene (Stamford, Conn.) has been named the American Athletic Conference Goalkeeper of the Week, as announced by the league on Monday afternoon. The conference also recognized senior defender Sergio Campbell (Clarendon, Jamaica) and sophomore midfielder Kwame Awuah (Toronto, Ontario), who both were named to the Honor Roll.
Leven tallied two more clean sheets this past week, earning shutouts against Cincinnati (Oct. 8) and Tulsa (Oct. 11). The Connecticut stopper has yet to allow a goal in three career starts this season, and he finished the match against Tulsa with three saves to help the Huskies (4-5-2, 2-1-1) earn a 2-0 win at home.
Through three games, Levene has totaled nine saves behind a Connecticut defense that has allowed just one goal in the last 426 minutes. Campbell, who landed on the Honor Roll for the first time this season on Monday, has been the anchor of that defense. The UConn center back has started all 11 of the Huskies' matches this season, and in August he was named the conference Preseason Defensive Player of the Year.
Awuah, who has already matched his point total from a year ago, earned his first conference accolade this year following his game-winner against the Golden Hurricane on Saturday. His goal came in the 38th minute, as he received a pass in the midfield and fired a gorgeous shot into the net from well outside of the box.
The Huskies return to action tomorrow night at home against No. 4 Syracuse. Kickoff is set for 7 p.m.
