Lauren DeBeau – Senior – Forward – Michigan State
Big Time players make Big Time plays and that is exactly what a determined Lauren DeBeau did in a week in which she scored the game-winning goal for the Spartans in two huge Big Ten contests. DeBeau came through in the clutch for the Spartans when she converted the game-winning goal in their 1-0 win over Ohio State in Columbus.
She followed that up with a brilliant move to create the space she needed to send a lofted ball into the top right corner of the goal from 25 yards out in the 86th minute of play to give the Spartans the edge they needed to top a very good Rutgers team 1-0.
DeBeau has ten goals and three assists on the season. The Spartans secured the Big Ten Regular Season Title with a 9-0-1 mark in conference play and an overall record of 14-1-3.
The Spartans now move forward to the next phase of the season during which they will seek to build on the success they have had during regular season play.
Number one seed Michigan State begins play in the Big Ten Conference Tournament on Sunday when they host number eight seed Minnesota.
