SAN DIEGO, Calif. - University of San Diego sophomore midfielder Connor Brandt was named TopDrawerSoccer.com Men's College Soccer Player of the Week on Monday, while senior midfielder Dan Delgado was named College Soccer News National Player of the Week. Delgado was also named to Top Drawer Soccer's National Team of the Week.

Brandt (Temecula, Calif.) scored the game-winner in USD's 2-1 double overtime victory over No. 25 Cal State Northridge in the first round of the NCAA Tournament this past Thursday. Brandt took a pass from Delgado in the 103rd minute against the Matadors and punched it in for the golden goal victory.

He followed that up by notching a goal and two assists in the Toreros' 5-2 win over No. 6 UCLA this past Sunday. Against the Bruins, Brandt scored to tie the game at 1-1 in the 30th minute before assisting on a go-ahead goal by Sergio Lopez in the 51st minute and the final goal of the game in the 77th minute when he supplied a corner kick that James Cohn knocked in to put the game away.

Delgado (Escondido, Calif.) racked up the points over the weekend with a goal and four assists. Delgado made USD's victory over Northridge possible by bending a free kick into the back of the net in the 88th minute to tie the game at 1-1 and force overtime. He then assisted on Brandt's game-winner over the Matadors. In the win over UCLA, Delgado assisted on three of USD's five goals. He currently leads the team in goals (9), assists (9) and points (27).

The Toreros (13-8-0), who came in at No. 15 this week in Top Drawer Soccer's national Top-48, travel to face No. 11 seed Tulsa (14-5-1) in the Sweet 16 on Sunday, Nov. 25.
