GREENSBORO, N.C. – UNCG senior forward Hakan Ilhan (Stuttgart, Germany/Univ. of Stuttgart) has been named this week's Blue Chip Performer sponsored by Blue Cross Blue Shield of North Carolina after leading the Spartans to a 2-0 start in Southern Conference action. The Blue Chip Performer is chosen weekly from all sports in season and will run through the 2012-13 UNCG athletics campaign.
Ilhan, who was named to the College Soccer News National Team of the Week, played a role in all five of the Spartans' goals in their victories over Davidson and Appalachian State.
