Wins are nice.

They're vital, they're critical, they define your program.

But so does recognition. And this spring Rutgers has done pretty well in that area.

This week, again, Rutgers finds itself on the receiving end of honors from the Big Ten.

Men's Lacrosse

For the fifth time this season, two or more RU players were recognized for their actions in the previous week's contests.  For Bieda, it's his second award this season.  There have only been two weeks out of the nine this season when there wasn't at least one RU player recognized.
