Providence, RI - Brown University freshman midfielder Alex Buckley (Ridgewood, NJ) has been named the Ivy League Rookie of the Week in men's lacrosse for his key role in Brown's 12-7 victory over Fairfield last week.

With the score tied, 5-5, Buckley scored the first of three consecutive unassisted goals to give Brown the lead, 6-5, late in the third quarter. He then extended Brown's advantage to 8-5 with his second and third career goals.

Buckley has helped the Bears to a 3-0 record this season, their best start since 1993. He came to Brown via Ridgewood High School and the Lawrenceville School.
