Ryan Powell, Syracuse: The nation's premier offensive force is headed for his fourth consecutive honor. His passing is as good as his shooting.
Dan Denihan, Johns Hopkins: The heart of an outstanding team will carry the Jays through the rough times.
Conor Gill, Virginia: The Most Valuable Player of last year's final four could be the team MVP of this year's repeat champions.
Josh Sims, Princeton: No one in the country controls the offensive flow and gets teammates involved more efficiently.
A.J. Haugen, Johns Hopkins: The best dodging middie in the land will score like an attackman at times.
Jay Jalbert, Virginia: One of the quickest big men in the game, he'll make teammates like Conor Gill look that much better.
Brian Spallina, Hofstra: A dogged pursuer of ground balls, he is the best in transition at his position.
Jeff Shirk, Maryland: Whether he is on the man-down unit, facing off or running over you in a normal defensive alignment, there is no drop-off in his game. Maybe the best one ever to play for Dick Edell.
Peter Haas, Loyola: He has played on every midfield line in four tremendous years. He could suit the Greyhounds best at this, his original, spot.
Ryan Curtis, Virginia: He shuts down the opponent's top scorer with regularity; not the biggest, just the best.
Marshall Abrams, Syracuse: He might be the best pure take-away artist in the game.
Stephen Card, Duke: At 6 feet 2, 215 pounds, he combines intimidating physical play with superb stickwork.
Mickey Jarboe, Navy: The top goalie in the country a year ago, he dazzles with clearing passes that are unmatched.
Matt Bailer, Princeton: He will help the Tigers' young offense grow up in a hurry.
