Stat Freaks – Week 12

This week’s Stat Freaks was a season low, which isn’t too much of a shock as schedules are now starting to lighten up a little bit. Only 34 names in total made the list this time around, and of those 12 of them were newcomers. This is also the time of year where big performances tend to be really big. For some, it’s an extraordinary effort to keep the season alive. For others, it’s the chance to get in a game to remember before their career ends with graduation shortly. No matter the reason, the end of the season is where you can make the biggest impact.

Now on to the Stat Freaks!

Freak of the Week:

With so few performances to start with, it’s no shock to see that the goalie count is so small. High Point’s Tim Troutner gets the most credit in this category, almost getting shutout to his name before Zach Tuell took over to finish the game. For faceoffs, I do love Baptiste’s stat line quite a bit, but I think the most impressive performance along with implications has to be Inacio from Ohio State. Only losing three against Rutgers in a huge game for the Buckeyes should not be overlooked.

For offenses, the most clutch performance was without question Chris Gray from BU. 9 points in their big upset over Bucknell is exactly what you want to see from your great players. I have to tip my hat to Brendan McCarthy, though. 11 points would probably get the weekly honor for me in most weeks, but we’re no longer in most weeks. I’m putting much more stock into the opponent.

That leaves us with the defense. Short Stick Charlie Hayes once again put in a massive performance with 8GBs, 4 cause turnovers AND two goals. Ridiculous. Ohio State’s Terefenko was no slouch, either. Also with 8GBs, but only 1 caused turnover and 2 assists, is also impressive, but a slight step behind. The one I have to go with when considering the circumstances has to be Sexton out of Notre Dame. The Irish had their backs against the wall going into the weekend and dominated UVA to take home the ACC title. Sext was without question a major part of their ability to capitalize on UVA’s mistakes and get some goals the other way.

So your Freak of the Week: John Sexton, Notre Dame.
