Face off specialist Ben Williams was named ACC defensive player of the week on Monday. Williams was 17-24 at the X in No. 4 Syracuse's win over Albany, helping the Orange to a 2-0 start the season. That includes a stretch of 11 straight to open the game against Albany, the second longest of his career.
Last season, Williams won 15 straight faceoffs, also against Albany.
Last week, Dylan Donahue and Nick Mellen were honored as ACC offensive and defensive players of the week for their performance in Syracuse's 18-5 win over Siena.
The Orange next face Army on Sunday at 4pm inside the Carrier Dome.
