During St. John’s near upset of then-No. 6/6 Syracuse goalie Jeff Lowman provided confidence to his teammates with his excellent play in net, as he tied a season-high mark with 15 saves.
Lowman frustrated the Orange attackmen throughout the afternoon turning away the majority of outside opportunities. The 15 stops ties his best effort of 2012 when he reached the same total against Holy Cross on Feb. 18, 2012. The performance fell three saves short of Lowman’s career-high which was set against Georgetown on March 5, 2011.
The Tewaaraton Watch List nominee is averaging 12.25 saves per game which is tied for first in the BIG EAST conference and fifth in the NCAA. The junior ranks fifth in St. John’s history with 334 career saves.
The selection marks Lowman’s second appearance on the BIG EAST Weekly Honor Roll after earning the distinction for his game against Holy Cross. Lowman was named to the Honor Roll four times last season including one BIG EAST Defensive Player of the Week award.
St. John’s lacrosse prepares for a short week with a Tuesday, March 13 at Stony Brook and then returns to action Saturday, March 17 at BIG EAST rival Rutgers. The two games begin a seven game road trip for the Red Storm.
