SAN DIEGO, Calif. - USD junior Connor Brandt was named to the Men's National Team of the Week on Tuesday. Brandt (Temecula, Calif.) scored the game-winner in USD's 1-0 upset of No. 1 Cal Friday in Berkeley. In the 52nd minute, Brandt gathered a cross that had been deflected by Cal keeper Justin Taillole and fired off a quick shot from 25 yards out that found the back of the net for Brandt's fourth goal of the season and helped hand Cal their first loss of the year.

Brandt was previously named to the TDS Team of the Week on two consecutive weeks last season (Nov. 19 & Nov 27) during the NCAA Tournament. He also earned TDS National Player of the Week honors on Nov. 19, 2012.

The victory over Cal was the Toreros' third win over a No. 1-ranked opponent in team history. Brandt now leads the team in goals (4), assists (5), and points (13) this season.
