Creighton defender Akeem Ward was named the Big East defensive player of the week Monday, while Paul Kruse was the league’s goalkeeper of the week.

Ward scored the game-winning goal during Creighton’s 2-1 victory over South Florida on Sept. 3, and he had an assist during the Bluejays’ 2-0 win over Memphis Friday.

Kruse had three saves in both of the Bluejays’ wins last week, including the shutout against Memphis.
