Georgetown @ High Point: It’s the first game for the Hoyas after a very disappointing 2016 campaign. Last year’s Big East Freshman of the Year Daniel Bucaro returns, along with midfielder Peter Conley, who suffered a season-ending injury five games into last season. The Hoyas don’t lose a lot of talent from a year ago, and return defensemen Michael Mayer and Finn Dunne, as well as goaltender Nick Marrocco. As for the Panthers, they fell to Duke on Friday, 10-5, but hung with the Blue Devils for the game’s first three quarters. Michael LeClair and Sean Harrison each had a goal and an assist in the loss. I’m hoping the Hoyas start 2017 off strong after a very bad 2016.
Stony Brook @ Sacred Heart: The Seawolves were a consistent top-20 team last year, but with losses of Brody Eastwood, Matt Schultz, Challen Rogers, and goaltender Zach Oliveri from a year ago, Stony Brook isn’t anywhere near the same team they were in 2016. Meanwhile, Sacred Heart hopes to get more than two wins this year, and will trust in sophomore Max Tuttle to help lead the way.
Maryland @ St. Joe’s: Probably the game of the night, as the second-best team in the nation travels to Hawk Hill. In their win over Navy on Saturday, the starting attack of Matt Rambo (3 Gs, 3 As), Colin Heacock (2 Gs, 3 As), and Dylan Maltz (4 Gs) combined for 15 points. Connor Kelly recorded a pair of goals, while freshman Jared Bernhardt got the start at midfield and recorded a goal and an assist in his debut with the Terps. Dan Morris made 12 saves, but gave up 12 goals as well. The Hawks lost Mike Rastivo in the fall, but should have enough offense to give them a chance to win the NEC this year. Charles Giunta, Shane Taggert, and goaltender T.J. Jones have a very tough task of stopping a high-powered Maryland offense.
