COLLEGE PARK, Md. -- The 2nd-ranked Maryland men's lacrosse team (2-0) is set to welcome High Point for its home-opener at Capital One Field at Maryland Stadium Sat., Feb. 18, at 1 pm. The game is set to be streamed live on ($).


2 - Maryland will open its home slate Saturday against High Point for the second consecutive season. In the first meeting in history between the teams last year, the Terps defeated the Panthers, 15-10, behind a pair of hat tricks from Colin Heacock and Dylan Maltz.

4 - Maryland's extra-man unit was extremely efficient at St. Joseph's, scoring four goals on three opportunities. Colin Heacock and Jared Bernhardt each had a pair of goals on the EMO. The Terps are one of just four teams with a 100 percent conversion rate on the extra-man this season.

6 - Head coach John Tillman has had immense success since taking over the program six years ago, advancing to five NCAA semifinals and four title games. The Terps also lead the nation during that time period in All-America selections (38) and Major League Lacrosse draft selections (26).

7 - Maryland has won seven consecutive home-openers dating back to 2010, outscoring opponents by an average of 9.3 goals during that span. The Terps are 84-6-1 all-time in home-openers.

8 - The Terps have won eight straight games against unranked opponents, with head coach John Tillman posting a 38-3 record in the category since taking over the program in 2011.

13 - Senior Matt Rambo has tallied 13 points through two games on six goals and seven assists. It is the most points for a Terp through two games in at least 20 years. Michael Phipps came the closest during that span when he totaled 11 points through two games in 2007.

18 - Sophomore faceoff specialist Austin Henningsen had an excellent game at St. Joseph's, winning 18-of-24 faceoffs (75%). It was the second-most faceoff wins in his career, trailing only his 19 wins in the NCAA title game in 2016.

28 - Maryland's experienced attack unit of Dylan Maltz, Matt Rambo and Colin Heacock (#RunDMC) has combined for 28 points through two games in 2017. The senior-laden unit has started 20 consecutive games together and combined for 237 career goals.

31 - Maryland has scored 31 goals through two games due in large part to its .449 shooting percentage, which ranks second nationally. All five of Maryland's leading scorers are shooting over 40 percent, including senior Dylan Maltz, who has scored on 5-of-7 shots this season. Maltz has also scored 13 goals on 18 shots over his last five games dating back to 2016.

47 - Senior Matt Rambo is one of the hottest players in the country, tallying 47 points over his last eight games (5.9 pts/g) on 23 goals and 24 assists dating back to 2016. His recent tear continued against St. Joseph's with a career-high seven points on three goals and four assists.
