GREENSBORO, N.C. - Virginia junior midfielder Morgan Brian (St. Simons Island, Ga.) was named ACC Women's Soccer Co-Player of the Week, conference officials announced Tuesday. Brian shares the honor with her US Women's National Team teammate, North Carolina senior midfielder Crystal Dunn.

Brian was named MVP of last week's Klöckner Classic as the Cavaliers took the title with victories over VCU and Santa Clara. In Friday's 4-2 win over VCU, Brian had her first multi-assist game of her career, helping on Virginia's first and fourth goals. On Sunday, Brian had a goal and an assist in the 4-0 win over No. 9 Santa Clara.

It is the first ACC Player of the Week honor of Brian's career. On Tuesday, she was also named to TopDrawerSoccer.com Team of the Week.
