    STORRS, Conn. - University of Connecticut sophomore goalkeeper Shannon Nee (Lancaster, Pa.) has been named the Big East Defensive Player of the Week, as announced by the conference Tuesday afternoon.

    Nee, who was named to the Preseason All-Big East Team in January, made eight saves in UConn's 7-5 season-opening loss to No. 12 UMass Saturday. Two of her stops came during free position attempts for the Minutewomen, who averaged over 14 goals a game last season, and she also collected four ground balls and caused two turnovers.

    Midfielder Lauren Kahn (Nanuet, N.Y.) earned a spot on the Big East Honor Roll after scoring four goals and assisting on another in Saturday's loss. The senior scored three consecutive goals in the second half to pull UConn to within one, and she led the Huskies with five caused turnovers.

    UConn returns to action Saturday when it hosts Quinnipiac at 1 p.m. at the George J. Sherman-Family Sports Complex.
