Robson has been named Offensive Player of the Week for the first time in his career after recording two goals in Indiana's 2-2 tie with conference foe Michigan this past Sunday.

His second goal of the game came in the 68th minute as he netted a shot from 25 yards out. Currently, Robson is tied for the team lead with nine points (three goals, three assists).
Peri Marosevic, Michigan

Claiming the first weekly laurel of his career, Marosevic helped Michigan go undefeated last weekend as the Wolverines defeated Oakland, 3-0 and tied Indiana, 2-2. The freshman scored the opening goal and added another on Friday, boasting his first two-goal performance while donning the Maize and Blue. He also chipped in an assist against IU on Sunday, making him the first Michigan freshman to earn points against the Hoosiers since 2003. Marosevic currently boasts a team-high 11 points this season.
Defensive Player of The Week
Jason Tillman, Michigan State

Tillman earns his second weekly honor of the 2006 season after tallying six saves and two shutouts in 200 minutes of play last weekend.

He has shut out six opponents this season and boasts 17 on his career. This is the fourth time in as many years that Tillman has garnered Defensive Player of the Week accolades.
