Danesha Adams Named UCLA/Muscle Milk Student-Athlete of the Week

Dec. 3, 2007

Senior midfielder/forward Danesha Adams (Shaker Heights, OH/Shaker Heights HS) of the UCLA women's soccer team was selected as the UCLA/Muscle Milk Student-Athlete of the Week for Nov. 26-Dec. 2.

Adams tied the UCLA career record for game-winning goals with her 25th, as her golden goal in double overtime lifted the Bruins to a 3-2 victory over second-seeded Portland in the NCAA Quarterfinals at Drake Stadium on Friday. With the match tied 2-2, Adams headed in a corner kick at the 103:58 mark, sending UCLA to its fifth-straight NCAA College Cup. She also scored the Bruins' first goal on Friday, speeding past four Portland defenders before scoring with a right-footed shot to the far post to even the match at 1-1. Adams, who ranks first all-time at UCLA in career NCAA Tournament scoring with 41 points (19g, 3a), ranks second on the team in scoring this season with 38 points (15g, 8a).

This is Adams' second UCLA/Muscle Milk Student-Athlete of the Week honor of the season and school-record ninth of her career.

Also nominated: Dennis Keyes, Football; Lindsey Pluimer, W. Basketball; Anna Poteete, W. Swimming & Diving; Russell Westbrook, M. Basketball; Mike Zaher, M. Soccer.
