Walnut Creek, Calif. - UCLA senior midfielder Shaun Tsakiris has been named the Pac-10 Men's Soccer Player of the Week for Aug. 29-Sept. 5, Commissioner Tom Hansen announced today.
Tsakiris, from Saratoga, Calif., scored two goals and two assists to lead the Bruins to a pair of victories last week at the Adidas/IU Credit Union Classic in Bloomington, Ind. The pre-season All-American recorded two goals, including the game-winner, and an assist in UCLA's 5-0 win over Butler on Sept. 1. He also assisted on the game-winning goal against No. 1 Indiana in the Bruins' 2-1 upset victory on Sept. 2. Tsakiris was named to the All-Tournament team for his efforts.
Tsakiris' Pac-10 Player of the Week honor is the Conference's first such honor for men's soccer all-time.
