Saint Francis, which outscored its opponents 44-21 in the tournament, downed No. 18 Princeton University (11-5 W), Bucknell University (17-9 W) and No. 20 Johns Hopkins University (16-7) to claim its fifth straight ECAC title and the sixth in school history.

A three-time All-North selection, including first team honors in 2007, Pucarevic is the second Terriers' player to earn Player of the Week honors this year as Nikola Djuric (So., Belgrade, Serbia/IV Belogradska Gimnazija) garnered the award on September 8.
