Providence, RI - Brown University junior goalkeeper Jordan Burke (Potomac, MD) was named this week's Turfer Athletic New England Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association Division I Player of the Week, taking home the award for the second consecutive week.

Burke was brilliant in Brown's Ivy League opening win over Dartmouth, frustrating the Big Green time after time in making 17 saves to lift the Bears to a 9-5 victory. He made 11 saves in the first half alone to boost the Bears a 5-2 lead at the half. He faced 38 Big Green shots, 22 in the first half. Burke's stellar performance helped the Bears to their first win over Dartmouth since 2004.

Burke will lead the Bears (4-2 overall) into action this afternoon, Tuesday, March 25, at home against Vermont. Game time is 3:00 p.m. at Meister-Kavan Field.
