BIG TEN MEN'S CO-GOLFER OF THE WEEK
Brehm captured the Boilermaker Invitational title by four strokes last week in a field that included nine conference teams. The Spartan junior carded rounds of 72 and 70 for a 2-under-par total of 142, making him the only golfer in the field to finish under par. The first career victory was also his fifth career top-five finish. His efforts helped MSU to its first tournament title of the season and the first for the Spartans since their 2005 Big Ten Championships win.
Robert Rohanna, Penn State
Rohanna earned medalist honors for the second time in his collegiate career at the Marshall Invitational this past week. The Penn State junior, who also won the Georgetown Invitational in October, fired rounds of 69 and 68 to finish at 5-under-par 137 last week in Huntington, W.Va. His winning total is tied for second all-time for a 36-hole score in Nittany Lion history. Rohanna recorded nine birdies in his two-day rout and helped lead Penn State to a 3-under score of 565, bettering runner-up Ball State by 12 strokes.
