TAMPA - The honors keep piling up for USF's leading goal scorer in the nation.

Dom Dwyer was named Big East Offensive Player of the Week on Tuesday after he helped the USF men's soccer team wrap up the conference's Red Division title.

The junior helped the Bulls grab at least a share of the hardware last Tuesday when he scored two goals and assisted a third in the team's 3-0 win over Cincinnati. Dwyer's honor marked a fourth consecutive player of the week selection for USF, which won the entire Red Division title Monday with a tie against Rutgers.

Dwyer has won the offensive player of the week award three times in the past four weeks and is the only Big East player to win more than one award this season. He also was named to the Top Drawer Soccer national team of the week on Monday.

"It's obviously nice getting personal recognition, but I'm just so happy that we're doing well as a team," Dwyer said.

The honors didn't stop there for a Bulls team that now has a first-round bye in the Big East Tournament. Ben Sweat was named to the Big East Weekly Honor Roll after helping USF post a pair of shutouts and notching an assist in the Cincinnati game. Sweat has been on backline that has helped USF post seven shutouts and go undefeated in Big East play this regular season.

"He's always a great player and he stepped it up this week," Dwyer said. "He's a workhorse."

No. 4 USF will host a Big East Tournament quarterfinal game 1 p.m. Sunday at Corbett Soccer Stadium against Thursday's Notre Dame-Villanova winner.
