NCAA D1 Stat Freaks – Week 8

While this week in D1 stat freaks did drop off a little bit in terms of total number of performances (50, the lowest since Week 2’s 43), there were still 22 new names being added to the list. Of those 22 is Paul Rasimowicz of Cornell, who made the list for both of his games last week. We also saw quite a few familiar faces like Kyle Walsh from VMI and TD Ierlan from Albany who had ANOTHER perfect game at the faceoff X. Speaking of faceoff X, can we still call it that? Is it a dot? A slight indentation from the ref’s foot? This is a truly perplexing situation. Let me know what you think.

Anyway, enough of the terminology debate, onto the numbers!

Freak of the Week

For the offense, I loved Jeff Teat against Air Force. Three goals on three shots and 4 assists. But Keegan Khan from Villanova getting seven goals on nine shots is also a tad ridiculous. For defense, there were plenty of guys hitting the 11 GB/CT mark, but only Kyle Walsh from VMI broke that plateau and grabbed 12 against Hampton. This guy is so under the radar, it’s ridiculous. Sure VMI is a struggling team, but he is putting in work every week.

For goalies, I loved Colby Kneese’s 16/20 to get paires with 5GBs against Ohio State. But Ben Gleichenhaus from Jacksonville also getting a caused turnover was a nice one against High Point in their loss. They lost by 2 goals, but with the way he played, you have to wonder if he could have kept that up for an entire game rather than just the 34 minutes he played.

Ultimately, this week, I’m going to give the Freak of The Week nod to Mr. Ierlan from Albany. A perfect 24/24 in a league game against Stony Brook, and there were only three of those ground balls that he did not get. Oh, and he had an assist. He is putting together one of the best statistical performances we have ever seen. And they keep winning.
