By the numbers for women's lacrosse (March 20)

Here’s a look at some of the numbers that stood out in Division I women’s lacrosse over the past week.

2 — Southern California needed two overtime victories to earn sole possession of first place in the Pac-12. The No. 12 Trojans slipped past No. 15 Colorado, 8-7, Friday and edged Oregon, 9-8, Sunday. They face both opponents again next month, because the Pac-12 is the only conference in the country in which teams play each other twice.

8 — Florida overcame an eight-goal deficit in the first 19 minutes to rally for a 19-16 win over No. 13 Navy on Tuesday. Freshman Shannon Kavanaugh tied it and then gave the No. 6 Gators their first lead with 6:04 left as she finished the game with four straight goals.

18 — No. 1 Stony Brook’s Courtney Murphy needs 18 goals to break the NCAA record of 289 set by Temple’s Gail Cummings in 1988. Murphy, who has 26 goals this season, scored 100 two years ago before an ACL tear cut her 2017 season short.

55.6Loyola Maryland leads Division I in shooting percentage, hitting 55.6 percent of its shots. Frankie Kamely leads the No. 8 Greyhounds at 65.6 percent, tied for ninth in the nation.

700 — Johns Hopkins’ game against Maryland on Saturday was the 700th in program history. The Blue Jays played their first game March 26, 1976, and have gone a combined 428-268-4 in Division III and Division I.
