NCAA D1 Stat Freaks – Week 4

Previously, Stat Freaks was just a section in the weekly rundown we did for all of Division 1. But this has turned into one of the more popular features, so we broke it out into its own post. Don’t miss D1 Conference Comparison either. Another good one! Stat Freaks is all about capturing any individual player in any D1 game who really made a significant effort when it comes to the numbers. Many games have no players show up in the list, while some blowouts can have 3 or 4 people represented.

Stat Freaks is all about having a little bit of fun with some of the box scores out there. If a player in a late April game between two teams with a single win between them goes out and causes 12 turnovers, we’ll find it, and give them some recognition. It’s a good way to make sure we’re looking beyond the big top 20 games in the country and point out great performances by anyone when they have them.

So let’s see who had themselves a game (or two) this week!

D1 Stat Freak of the Week:

This was probably the toughest one in a while. Usually someone just runs away with a stat line that jumps off the page, even when comparing to several others who had crazy stat lines. But even the eye popping ones had peers this time around. So I decided to really consider the competition in this case. That really brought me down to a few choices. Connor Kelly against Notre Dame, Chris Connolly against Yale, Andrew Simeon against Jacksonville, and Gerard Arceri against Penn.

Ultimately, I’m going with Penn State’s Gerard Arceri. Only losing two faceoffs, picking up nearly every one of his own GBs AND scoring a goal in a must win game against a ranked in-state foe? That’s a big time performance in a big time game.  Hats off to you, Mr. Arceri!

I’ll be back next week with more Stat Freaks, and another Stat Freak of the Week!
