(10–13–15) – Louisville junior goalkeeper Taylor Bucklin (Greenwich, Conn.) – who racked up 18 saves while seeing plenty of action spanning an historic 2–1 win over North Carolina and 0–0 game with Duke – headlines CS360’s week–8 Primetime Performers Honor Roll for Division I women’s soccer, for games played from Oct. 5–11, 2015. Bucklin is the CS360 National Primetime Player of the Week, while the 17 Primetime Performer honorees for week–8 also include Morehead State first-year forward Dani Wilson (Elizabethtown, Ky), the CS360 National Freshman of the Week.

As a reminder, the CS360 Primetime Performers (which began in 2009) highlight players who perform at a high level – both consistently and in timely fashion – during games that carry potential significance to postseason qualification and positioning (i.e. based on quality of opponents and other situational factors, beyond raw stats; see Primetime Performer selection criteria, posted below).

The week–8 Primetime Performers include several from teams that were locked in key midseason showdowns against top contenders for their respective 2015 conference regular-season titles (which, in many cases, also carry the bonus of serving as the conference tournament host team).

BUCKLIN allowed only one goal in 209 minutes of game action while totaling 18 saves and defensing 54 total shots plus 18 corner kicks, spanning the 2–1 overtime win vs. #1-ranked North Carolina [cs360 #2] and 0–0 game against [26] Duke. Her eight saves vs. UNC included two late in regulation, while she also defensed a whopping 30 total shots and 10 corners in that thriller, as the Cardinals beat a No. 1 team for the first time in program history.

Three days later, Bucklin added 10 more saves, also defensing 24 total shots and eight corners, in the tense 0–0 game with Duke. Two of her saves preserved the tie during overtime.

WILSON provided the thru-ball assist that sprung fellow freshman forward Abby Timm for a goal only 17 seconds into the game at Ohio Valley Conference favorite SIU Edwardsville. Then, in the second half, she sent a similar assist on another Timm goal (60’) for a 2–0 lead in that eventual 2–1 win. Later in the weekend, in double overtime at Eastern Illinois, Wilson drew a penalty kick and calmly converted from the spot (102’) for the 1–0 win – as Morehead averted the letdown result with a 1–0 win.

Headshots of the week–8 Primetime Performers are included in the right sidebar, while player capsules (including action photos; text to be added later in week/time permitting) are featured at the bottom of this page.

... Selection for the CS360 weekly awards is based on any/all of the following "primetime" criteria (i.e. not solely based on raw stats):

• Performed at a high level in a game that could be key to the team's postseason qualification, typically in a game involving a top-50 team from the CS360 Composite National Rankings (or in a game involving a conference favorite/leader from a league not represented in the CS360 top-50).
• In general, preference is given based on the quality of the opponent, contribution to team success and other situational factors involved in the player's accomplishments.
• Exhibited strong leadership and/or involved in clutch performances, such as gamewinning goals, noteworthy comebacks, late scores, momentum-shifting play, all-around performance/consistency, filling role/gameplan, team spirit, etc.
• Overcame adversity or extreme circumstances (for the team and/or individual).
• Bonus consideration is given for key performances away from team's home field and/or against a traditional rival.
• (Note that typically a higher number playstonyers from conferences outside the CS360 top-50 will be honored later in the season, as league races heat up and individual results have greater bearing on postseason qualification).
