De Filippo Earns National Player of the Week Honors
FAYETTEVILLE – Senior forward Jessica De Filippo was named National Player of the Week by Top Drawer Soccer and College Soccer News for her performance in the second and third rounds of the NCAA Tournament.
The Quebec native notched a goal and assist in the second-round match with 6-seed Ohio State and helped send the Hogs to their second straight Sweet 16.
In the Sweet 16 against Memphis, De Filippo recorded her first career brace and scored both goals in the first half.
Jessica De Filippo's six goals in the NCAA Tournament are the most by any player in the field through three rounds.
