Here's how Marquette wrote it up: Senior Chandler Hallwood was named the league's Goalkeeper of the Week for his performance against Xavier on Saturday. In the lone game he played last week, Hallwood earned the clean sheet as he held the Musketeers off the score sheet for the first time this season and helped MU earn its first road point over a nationally-ranked squad since 2014.

Scoring all three goal in the first 33 minutes against Milwaukee, he became the first Marquette player to have a hat trick since 2011 and the first defender in all of NCAA Division I to have a hat trick since 2019.
