NCAA D1 Stat Freaks – Week 7

What a week it was! There were some big time performances that have the opportunity to turn around the season for some teams. There were 27 new additions to the old 2018 Stat Freaks roster.

What a week it was! There were some big time performances that have the opportunity to turn around the season for some teams. There were 27 new additions to the old 2018 Stat Freaks roster. The most impressive first timer was actually Connor Keating from Penn who showed up big in both his games this week. I also really like how reasonably balanced each of the categories is, which is oddly rare. But, before I give away too much, take a look:

Freak of the Week

For the offense, there are definitely a few performances that jump off the page to me. Most of the list was just qualifying at the 7 point mark with a few checking in at 8 as well. But when you look at the BU/Harvard game, seeing two players from opposite teams make it quite a bit of fun Cheek (Harvard) and Gray (BU) both put up 8 assists. But their overall point difference was entirely made up for by the extra shots Cheek took. Both were firing away, but it was Cheek that connected and wound up winning the BATTLE OF ALLSTON.

Defensively, Kyle Walsh from VMI continues to produce at a ridiculous pace. Making the list by GBs alone, he also grabbed six caused turnovers.  Darren Almodiel from Hampton also was a force in their D1 premiere this week. But you always have to tip your hate to Mr. Zach Goodrich from Towson who has made the list again as an SSDM.

In goalie land, Mike Adler made the list again, but in a crazy turn of events, so did his opposing goalie. I’m sure it has happened before, but two goalies from the same game both being over 70% is a true oddity. Also, but cheers to Vermont’s Nick Washuta and Hobart’s Sam Lucchesi for each recording a caused turnover.

But this was a week where the FOGOs too center stage. Baptiste and Ierlan are in an all out Dan vs. Dave competition right now. Ierlan lost 5 faceoffs over two games while also scoring a goal and grabbing an assist. Against Canisius, there were only two wins where he did not get the ground ball. Meanwhile Baptiste had a casual three loss day with two goals against Towson. Yikes!

The one I’m going to give the nod to for the week is actually from NJIT because it’s just such a weird stat line in a week of weird stat lines. Against Wagner, Adam Gonzalez lost only one faceoff an finished 14/15. What’s crazy. One ground ball. One! How do you only lose one faceoff but still only get one ground ball?!

I blame the stat keepers.
