Greensboro, N.C. – Virginia faceoff specialist Jack deVilliers was named the ACC Men’s Lacrosse Player of the Week for his play in the Cavaliers’ 11-7 win over Princeton last Saturday (March 12).

deVilliers, a senior captain from Lutherville, Md., helped the Cavaliers gain and maintain possession against the Tigers by winning 13 of 21 faceoffs (.619), his best percentage against a ranked team in nearly two years. He also snagged a game-leading eight ground balls, his second-highest total of the season.

With the Cavaliers holding a slim 4-2 halftime lead, he won nine of 13 draws (.692) in the second half as UVa opened an 11-5 lead in the fourth quarter on the way to the win.

Virginia is 4-0 so far this season, its best start in two years. The Cavaliers return to action at home tomorrow night at 7 pm against Mount St. Mary’s.
