Tillman Johnson Named ACC Men's Lacrosse Player of the Week
April 2, 2001
Greensboro, N.C. –
Goalie Tillman Johnson has been named the Atlantic Coast Conference Player of the Week for his play in the Cavaliers’ 7-2 win over then #1 Maryland on Saturday. The win was the Cavaliers’ ACC opener and prevented Maryland from claiming the ACC regular-season championship.
Johnson, a freshman from Annapolis, Md., turned in a tremendous performance against the Terrapins. He recorded 16 saves, including several from point-blank range, while giving up just two goals. He held them scoreless for the first 35 minutes of action. By the time Maryland scored its first goal, the Cavaliers had built a 5-0 lead. Maryland’s two goals were the fewest the Terps have scored in a game since 1948.
