Texas senior goalie Paige Brown earned her first Big 12 defensive player of the week honor on Monday.
Brown made six saves and notched her fourth career shutout in the Longhorns’ 2-0 victory over Texas Tech Friday night. She had three saves against top-ranked West Virginia on Sunday and held the Mountaineers scoreless until Carla Portillo’s goal in the 79th minute.
Brown is the third Longhorn to win a weekly award from the conference this season. Freshmen Kyra Falcone and Tecora Turner won freshman of the week honors last September.
