CU’s Hansen earns Pac-12 weekly honors for third time this season

PUBLISHED: | UPDATED:

For the third time this season, Colorado goalkeeper Dani Hansen on Monday was selected as the Pac-12 goalkeeper of the week.

The sophomore from Broomfield recorded a pair of shutouts for the Buffs this past weekend, holding both Arizona and No. 17 Arizona State scoreless. Hansen made 16 saves in her 200 minutes and now leads the Pac-12 with 87 saves this season.

Hansen now ranks seventh in the NCAA and leads the Pac-12 with seven shutouts this season. She made 11 saves against the Wildcats, the most in a shutout this season. Hansen is averaging 7.4 saves per game in her shutouts this season.

Hansen has provided stability in net for the Buffs all season. She’s fifth in the NCAA in saves. 15th in saves per game (6.21), 16th in save percentage (.888) and is fourth in the Pac-12 with a .743 goals-against average.

She previously won back-to-back keeper of the week awards, on Feb. 22 and March 1. It’s the first time a CU goalkeeper has been honored three times in the same season since Jalen Tompkins won the award three times in 2017.

The Buffs are tied with ASU with 14 points in the Pac-12 Standings with just one match left in the regular season. CU will have one last chance to make a push for the NCAA Tournament, hosting Utah on Friday (3 p.m. MT).
