NCAA Men’s Lacrosse Final Stats

ALBANY, N.Y. – For the second-straight season, the UAlbany men’s lacrosse team is the highest-scoring team in all of Division I with 15.94 goals per game in 2014.

UAlbany, which defeated Loyola in the NCAA First Round to earn a berth in the quarterfinals, earned over a goal more than Duke (14.85) and over two-and-a-half more than Denver (13.21), each ranked two and three in DI scoring offense this year.

Last season, UAlbany led all DI in scoring offense with 15.94 goals per game, almost a goal-and-a-half more per game than second-place Cornell (15.94).

The offense was led by a pair of Tewaaraton finalists that are in the running for the Tewaaraton Trophy, which will be awarded on Thursday in Washington D.C.  With a DI-record 128 points and 77 assists, Lyle Thompson had statistically the top season ever for a Division I player, adding 51 goals.  Brother Miles Thompson tied the DI record for goals in a season with 82, adding 37 assists to stand second all-time with 119 points this season.  Just one other player in all of Division I had more than 82 points this season. 

Ty Thompson earned 41 goals to average 2.28 goals a game to stand 38th in Division I, putting UAlbany with three players in the top-38 in DI in goals per game.

In all, nine players for UAlbany scored double digit goals and points this season.  The team scored double digit goals in 17 of its 18 games this year, including four games with at least 20 goals.  The highest came on March 8th when the Great Danes scored 25 goals on then 9th-ranked UMass on the road, tying the highest goal-scoring output in program history in a 25-10 victory.
