The ACC has named Syracuse Orange attackman Kevin Rice the Offensive Player of the Week. Rice had three goals and four assists for a season high seven points in SU's 15-9 win over the Virginia Cavaliers on Sunday. The senior now has 69 goals, 88 assists and 158 points in his career and his four assists against UVA moved him up two spots to ninth all-time in career assists at Syracuse. Last season Rice led SU in points and in assists. The Orange have now been honored with a weekly award five times this season. Junior Dylan Donahue received the Offensive Player of the Week twice while Sean Young and Ben Williams have both been previously named Defensive Player of the Week.
