TULSA, Okla. (AP) - Oral Roberts University sophomore goalkeeper Ben LaCourse has been named by the Summit League as the men's soccer Defensive Player of the Week.

The league made the announcement Tuesday.

LaCourse recorded five saves and his first shutout of the season in a 1-0 win over Missouri State in double-overtime in the Golden Eagles' regular season opener Monday.

ORU will be back in action Friday as they play the first of two contests in south Texas against Houston Baptist. The Golden Eagles close the Texas trip Sunday with a showdown at Incarnate Word in San Antonio.
