BY THE NUMBERS

1 - The No. 1 Maryland mens's lacrosse team is set to meet Ohio State April 22 at 2:00 pm in College Park, marking the first time the programs will square off since the Terps defeated the Buckeyes, 9-6, in the 2017 NCAA Championship game. Maryland is 8-2 all-time against Ohio State in a series that dates back to 1990.

1 - The Terrapin specialist units are both among the best in the country in addition to leading the Big Ten. The Terrapin man-up unit is scoring at a 63-percent (20-of-32) clip, as Jared Bernhardt leads the country with seven man-up goals. Meanwhile, the man-down unit has allowed just two goals on 20 attempts over its last six games after holding Rutgers 1-for-7 last weekend.

3 - Maryland and Ohio State met three times in 2017. The Terps lost the regular season meeting in Columbus, but gained revenge by winning the Big Ten Tournament finals and NCAA finals against OSU. Connor Kelly wrapped up B1G Tournament MVP honors with five goals against the Buckeyes, while Tim Rotanz scored a game-high three goals in the NCAA Chamionship.

4 - Maryland can clinch at least a share of its fourth consecutive Big Ten regular season title Sunday with a victory. Since the conference's inaugural season in 2015, the Terps have pieced together a 16-2 regular season record in conference action. The Terps are 20-3 overall including the Big Ten Tournament.

8 - Senior Connor Kelly totaled eight points on four goals and four assists against Rutgers to push his season point total to 60 points through 11 games (5.5/g). It's the most points through 11 games for a Terp since Bob Boneillo in 1978. As a comparison, 2017 Tewaaraton Award winner Matt Rambo averaged 4.6 points/g last season.

10 - The Terps are the only team in Division I to score at least 10 goals in every game this season - a remarkable feat for a team which lost 54 percent of its scoring from 2017. Maryland is shooting the ball at a 37-percent clip which ranks third nationally, while turning the ball over a nation's best 9.8 times per game.

16 - The Terrapins will be going for their NCAA-best 16th consecutive 10-win season against Rutgers. Duke has the second-longest streak (13), having already won its 10th game this year. Other than Maryland's 9-4 season in 2002, the Terps have won at least 10 games 18 of the last 19 years.

58 - Prior to the game, Maryland will be celebrating a senior class that has compiled a remarkable 58-11 (.841) record. The class has has advanced to three NCAA championship games, while also capturing five combined Big Ten regular season and tournament titles. The Terps' senior class record for wins has been broken three straight seasons, and is currently owned by the class of 2017 with 61 wins.
