BY THE NUMBERS
2 - The No. 2 Maryland men's lacrosse team is set to meet Marist for just the second time in program history. The Terps won the lone previous meeting, 17-4, on March 10, 2012, as freshman Jay Carlson scored four goals.
3 - In addition to scoring one goal, senior midfielder Connor Kelly tallied three assists in the season-opening win against Navy. The three dishes matched a career-high for Kelly, who had only 11 assists in 2017 despite posting 57 points.
3 - Freshman Bubba Fairman was sensational in his collegiate debut, scoring three goals on five shots. Fairman, who was rated the No. 2 overall recruit in the 2017 class by Inside Lacrosse, is the first Maryland player to score three goals in a collegiate debut since Matt Rambo had four in 2014.
4 - The Terps allowed just four goals in a rainy defeat of Navy to open the 2018 season on Feb. 10. It was an excellent defensive effort from Maryland, which won its ninth consecutive game against the Mids. Senior goalkeeper Dan Morris made 11 saves in the effort, while Michael Adler caused a pair of turnovers.
5 - The Terps rolled out many new faces against Navy, including five players in their official starting lineup who made their first career collegiate start. The five players included senior Michael Adler, sophomore Jack Welding, redshirt freshmen Anthony DeMaio and Logan Wisnauskas and freshman Bubba Fairman.
6 - Maryland returns six All-Americans in 2018, including IMLCA First Team All-American midfielder Connor Kelly. The other returning All-Americans are sophomore A/M Jared Bernhardt, senior goalkeeper Dan Morris, senior long stick midfielder Matt Neufeldt, senior midfielder Tim Rotanz and senior defender Bryce Young. All six players earned preseason All-America honors from Inside Lacrosse.
9 - Maryland head coach John Tillman has pieced together another challenging slate for the Terps, which includes matchups against nine teams in the IMLCA Coaches Poll. The Terps have routinely played the top schedule in the country, posting the No. 1 overall RPI back-to-back seasons.
10 - The Terrapins have been very efficient in mid-week games, winning 10 straight since 2012. Overall, Maryland is 11-1 in mid-week action since John Tillman took over the program in 2011. The lone loss during the span came in an 8-7 defeat to UMBC on March 6, 2012.
