Stat Freaks: NCAA Division I Week 4

syracuse orange weekly watch guide stat freaksThis was a HUGE week for our NCAA Division I Stat Freaks. 79 total names total made our Stat Freaks list, and the majority were also first time appearances.

Stat Freaks of the Week for Week 4

stat freaks


If you don’t care about the opponent, and only look at pure points totals, BU’s Chris Gray tallying five goals and four assists with a strong shooting percentage is excellent. Bringing in the opponent as a factor, Towson’s Brendan Sunday matching Gray’s total against Georgetown is better. But when you look at pure volume and opponent? You have to go Grant Ament against Yale. Two goals and seven assists with only three missed shots is pretty incredible in a game like that.


Again, looking only at volume, Holy Cross’ Matt Farrell takes the cake going six ground balls and six caused turnovers, which was the highest total of the weekend. But other factors involved, I need to call out Jack Pezzulla of UNC for his seven ground balls against Hopkins in the muddiest of mud games that rarely happen these days. He had to work for those! However, my defensive honor for the Stat Freak of the Week goes to Tim Kiel of St. John’s going five ground balls and five caused turnovers in the upset win over High Point.


No perfect games here, and no multi-point games either. There were some great losing performances like Jimmeh Koita of Drexel and Peyton Smith of Marist. But, there were some clutch performances that helped seal the victory for their teams. The ones in this category that jump out at me are Jakob Phaup of  Syracuse, Justin Inacio of Ohio State, and Alex Woodall of Towson. But the most clutch of the weekend is our old standby TD Ierlan at Yale. He had himself a game when it really mattered, and earned his Stat Freak performance.


Liam Donnelly from Utah, take yourself a bow! I love seeing the Utes make the list already and he’s not even the first one! But, also props to Army’s AJ Barretto who made the list for his midweek game, and ALMOST made it as a losing goalie against Syracuse. That’s a keeper. Also, shout out to Loyola’s Jacob Stover for his GBs ad caused turnover against Rutgers. But, the best goalie of the week?

Overall Stat Freak of the Week

It has to be Tate Boyce. It has to be him. 27 saves?! When you start getting into a save volume that high, the percentage rarely follows. Nice effort between the pipes!

Last, but not least, we can start tabulating our season appearances. First up, is the number of times an individual has been on the list:

Name – School #
Colby Kneese – Penn St. 3
Grant Ament – Penn St. 3
Pat Spencer – Loyola Maryland 3
Joseph Cipoletti – Sacred Heart 3

There are another 17 players at two appearances on our Stat Freaks list, but I try to keep the list around 10 total names. Hopefully that gets pared down soon.

Now, which schools are sending the most players?

Team Freaks
Penn St. 10
Sacred Heart 7
Denver 6
Army West Point 5
Towson 5
Holy Cross 5
Lehigh 5
Princeton 5
Boston U. 5
Loyola Maryland 5

Now, the bad list. Who is allowing the most Stat Freaks against them?

Team Allowed
Army West Point 8
Monmouth 6
Jacksonville 6
Sacred Heart 5
Cleveland St. 5
High Point 5
Albany (NY) 5
Johns Hopkins 5

The only one here that’s making me wince a little is Albany. With Cornell on deck this week that has potential to get ugly. Hopkins vs. Princeton could be the same.
