Last season: 13-3, NCAA tournament first round
Coach: Bill Tierney (eighth season, 96-28; 32nd season overall, 368-121)
Top returning scorer: Connor Cannizzaro, senior A (46 G, 23 A)
Other key returnees: Trevor Baptiste, junior F/O (69.4 percent, 163 GB, 2 G, 3 A); Christian Burgdorf, senior D (39 GB, 12 CT); Tyler Pace, senior M (21 G, 24 A)
Key newcomers: Danny Logan, freshman M; Kyle Smith, freshman M; Ethan Walker, freshman A
Outlook: Cannizzaro is a preseason favorite for the Tewaaraton Award, and Burgdorf and sophomore goalkeeper Alex Ready (9.00 goals-against average and .519 save percentage) stabilize the defense. But the midfield is in flux after senior Zach Miller (27 G, 23 A) elected not to enroll this year and junior Brendan Bomberry (19 G, 14 A) transferred to Syracuse.
