Albany junior attackman Lyle Thompson (May 9)

When Steve Marohl registered 114 points in his senior year in 1992, hardly anyone thought the UMBC attackman's single-season record would be matched. Then along came Thompson. The 6-foot, 180-pound junior has 45 goals and 69 assists and will likely break Marohl's record when he leads the Great Danes against No. 3 seed Loyola in the first round of the NCAA tournament on Saturday. Thompson compiled 16 points on eight goals and eight assists in Albany's two games in the America East tournament, notching three goals and five assists in Saturday's 20-11 rout of UMBC in the title game. Thompson, who recorded 113 points on 50 goals and 63 assists in 2013, became the first player in Division I history with more than 100 points in two seasons.
