Shipp has scored 12 goals, including five game-winners, and notched eight assists in leading the Irish (15-1-6) to a share of the Atlantic Coast Conference regular-season title.

He was named the league's top offensive player and was the Capital One Academic All-American of the Year for men's soccer.

He has added three goals during Notre Dame's run to the College Cup, where they will face off against New Mexico tomorrow at 5:30 p.m. in a national semifinal in Chester, Pa.

The two other finalists are Patrick Mullins of Maryland and Leo Stolz of UCLA and the winner will be named at a banquet on Jan. 10, 2014.
