SIOUX FALLS, S.D. – Oral Roberts' Tanguy Guerineau and Denver's Jacob Stensson earned the latest #SummitMSOC weekly awards as the 2019 season hits the back-stretch. Guerineau captured the offensive accolade following a six-point spread in two victories while Stensson helped DU post a crucial win over Omaha to earn the defensive accolade.

Guerineau combined for two goals and two assists as Oral Roberts defeated Northern Kentucky, 5-2, and Central Arkansas, 3-1, last week to improve to 12-2 on the season. Against the Norse, the Frenchmen posted his third multiple-assist game of the season, assisting on ORU's first goal of the match and the eventual game-winning goal before tacking on an insurance goal.

Guerineau also scored ORU's first goal in a road win over a Central Arkansas team that owns the 25th-best RPI in the country. He currently shares the national lead with 10 assists on the season.

Stensson led the Pioneers to their first Summit League win of the season, helping anchor a defense that allowed only three shots on goal in a 2-0 victory over Omaha. He also provided the game-winning goal, knocking in the rebound off a penalty kick in the 22nd-minute.  The Sweden native also captained the defense in a 1-1 road draw with Tulsa earlier in the week.
