Towson's Alex Woodall has won nearly 75% of his faceoffs this year so I am not counting on getting many if any faceoff wins on Saturday. The good news is that both teams play solid defense so there will not be all that many goals which will limit the number of faceoffs.tenn hen wrote:I spent a few minutes comparing the top 20 teams and their schedules from the link provided by Scott-thanks!, and I came to the conclusion that parity is quite evident throughout most of the teams.
Our biggest negative was the 3/2 loss to Villanova who is now ranked outside the top 20. Our team has been improving with each contest which is a good omen though the next two games will give us an answer as to where we belong. Our hammering of Hofstra looked impressive even with the faceoff fiasco and turnovers. I hope coach Deluca and staff can develop someone to possibly win 2/3s of the faceoffs by CAA tournament time or a strategy to attack their immediate possession. We just can't give up those free advantages and expect to come away from quality teams.
Just hope we keep up the mojo. I would hate to be let down after getting so encouraged-kinda like our football 2018
