Neushul, the Peter Cutino Player of the Year two years ago, scored 11 goals over Stanford's four wins at the event, as the Cardinal (4-0) clinched the crown with an 8-4 win over No. 3 UCLA Sunday afternoon.

The Goleta native scored the opener in the second half of the title game, spurring a four-goal run for the Cardinal that opened a one-goal game at halftime into a 7-2 lead with 5:36 remaining.

Neushul opened the weekend with five goals in Saturday morning's 16-3 win over No. 17 UC Davis then added another hat trick in the afternoon's 16-5 win over No. 6 Hawai'i. She scored twice in Sunday morning's 13-9 win over No. 5 UC Irvine to send the Cardinal into the title game.

Menlo College

Menlo College's Jolise Limcaco was named the Cal Pac Player of the week for the second time this season for her effort in leading the No. 14 Lady Oaks to a pair of conference wins last week.

Menlo (20-4, 9-0) defeated William Jessup, 69-66, on Thursday and followed it up with a 75-59 win over Simpson on Saturday to clinch the top seed in the Cal Pac Tournament, hosted by Menlo College beginning March 1.

The junior guard from Sacramento led the Lady Oaks with 17 points on Thursday and 19 points on Saturday.

Limcaco, the Cal Pac's leader in assists per game, notched another 11 assists over the week to bring her season total to 145. In addition, she added four steals to bring her season total to a team-best 46.

The Lady Oaks hit the road this week for a pair of Cal Pac games. On Thursday they travel to Angwin to take on Pacific Union and head to Maritime on Saturday to take on the Keelhaulers. Both games will tip-off at 5:30 pm.
