He was already voted one of Albany's five captains, and Marr said Lyle has been more vocal in practice than in the past, getting the offense on the same page as they work to develop chemistry with new starting personnel, including several freshman in the attack mix.

It will be even more different with their cousin, Ty, out of playing time at Albany, too. He scored 41 goals last season, his senior year. Miles and Ty accounted for 37.7 percent of the Great Danes' points; Lyle 28 percent.

"All five of those guys, and Lyle, are all capable of playing at any time," Marr said. "We like our depth. We like that we can interchange some of those guys. A couple can play that four-man position that we run, the fourth attackman. We really like the depth. Three righties and two lefties that are paired up with Lyle. He seems to be pretty comfortable with all of them right now. We feel pretty fortunate about that. We're excited for some of these young scorers to play with Lyle, and fill the net up hopefully as much as we have the last couple years."

Instead of traditional three-man midfield lines, Albany runs four pairs of two with a fourth attackman on the field. The top six attackmen are all capable of playing in that spot, Marr said, and the midfield returns relatively intact, losing just one key senior.

And this might not be the final roster heading into 2015. Don't be surprised if, by the start of the real season, the current Albany group adds some transfers that will help boost the offense.

Defensively, Albany has more work to do to solidify a new starting lineup. In front of Riorden (54.9 save percentage in 2014), there will be three new starting defensemen and there are eight players jockeying for those spots, although two long-stick midfielders are back in Eric Cantor and Harry Erickson.

nor should they overlook how good that D was last year, rated the 12th-most efficient defense in DI. 

Cody Futia was a three-time All-America East defender who started all 18 games last season and was the leader down low. Doug Eich was a consistent presence from his sophomore year on and, in addition to playing sound D down low, was a threat between the lines, most notably including a big fourth quarter goal vs. Notre Dame in last seasonís NCAA Quarterfinals. Jon Newhouse was a stalwart in his final two seasons at Albany, and an all-conference defender as a junior.

tony Brook, N.Y. - For the second straight season, the Stony Brook men's lacrosse team will play 10 home games, coach Jim Nagle announced Wednesday.

The Seawolves will play a total of 16 regular season games in 2015, including a pair of first-time opponents.

"This year's schedule will be as challenging as we've faced since I've been at Stony Brook," Nagle said. "The early non-conference portion will be a great test for our guys. There's so much parity in the America East, and taking on Albany and UMBC in our first two conference games will be challenging. Vermont and Binghamton and Hartford always play us tough. We also look forward to welcoming UMass Lowell to the league."

Stony Brook will open the season at LaValle Stadium against Manhattan on February 7. The Seawolves beat the Jaspers, 12-8, last season. On Valentine's Day, Stony Brook will head west on the Long Island Expressway to face St. John's. Of the last four meetings against the Red Storm, the road team has been victorious each time.

Stony Brook will open a three-game homestand, beginning with Division I newcomer NJIT, which is led by former Seawolves assistant Travis Johnson, on February 20. Two days later, the Seawolves will take on two-time defending champion Duke. The month of February concludes with a game against Fairfield on the 28th.

The month of March features three road games and three home games. Stony Brook opens the month at Marist on the 3rd before an initial tune-up to conference play at Rutgers five days later.

The Seawolves, who have made 13 straight appearances in the America East Championship, will open conference play against Albany on March 14. The Great Danes lead the all-time series, 15-14.

Stony Brook will host UMBC a week later on March 21 before traveling to Vermont for a 1:30 p.m. game on March 28. The month ends with a non-conference contest against Quinnipiac on the 31st.

For the first time since 1993, Stony Brook will face Princeton in a game which will be played at LaValle Stadium on April 4. The Tigers lead the series, 2-0, having played both of those games in New Jersey.

America East newcomer UMass Lowell will host Stony Brook on April 10. Non-conference play concludes against Lehigh on April 12.

Stony Brook's 2015 home finale will be against Binghamton on April 18. The Seawolves wrap up the regular season at Hartford on April 24.

thanks!  http://www.stonybrookathletics.com/sports/m-lacros/spec-rel/101514aaa.html

16 games, 10 at LaValle.  5 night games, not counting the possible AE tourney which is sometimes at night.  no really far travel, burlington vt being the furthest.  new foes in princeton, NJIT, and UML.  weve never played these teams before (or at least not princeton in the last 20 years or so).

if you ask me, which you didnt, the tough stretch is duke/fairfield/marist/rutgers/albany/umbc.  Note we get Princeton, Duke and Albany all at home.  Those are likely the ranked teams (Lehigh perhaps?  SJU?). 

only two conference games on road (hartford, vt).  i see a lot of 50/50 contests in there.  should be plenty of close games.  only two midweek contests (marist and Q-pac). 

also note two doubled up weekends (2/20 NJIT, 2/22 Duke) (4/10 UML, 4/12 Lehigh) which should be interesting as each of Duke and Lehigh likely have a short rest too, which may be to our advantage.  And yes, that means Kyle Rowe comes to town.

that season-ending contest at hartford should be interesting, under the lights at al-marzook, lots of fans will be out heckling, nice weather, and by my guess (going off the last few seasons) this game will have some meaning. 

any news on preseason contests?

if true, potential scholarship opportunity for a transfer???

faceoff is one of those positions where a plug-and-play can actually work very well.

In 2015, Stony Brook will meet eight opponents in the regular season that finished the 2014 season ranked in the top 33 in adjusted Pythagorean win expectation, providing an opportunity to the Seawolves for vengeance and violence.

It's nice that Stony Brook has an opportunity to bag some big kills in 2015 in the nonconference portion of their schedule, but the Seawolves' volition is impacted most importantly in the team's conference slate.

Oct. 30, 2014

Stony Brook, N.Y. - Stony Brook head men's lacrosse coach Jim Nagle announced the Seawolves' 2015 roster on Thursday. The roster is made up of 38 talented student-athletes, including 14 upperclassmen.

Stony Brook will have the luxury of its starting attack and first midfield back, led by junior Brody Eastwood (Victoria, British Columbia), who totaled 40 goals for the second straight season. Senior Mike Rooney (East Islip, N.Y.) led the team in points (31, 22) and junior Matt Schultz (Smithtown, N.Y.), who posted 11 goals and six assists in 2013, nearly tripled his freshman output with 26 goals and 24 assists as a sophomore.

Junior Challen Rogers (Coquitlam, British Columbia) tallied a team-best 30 assists last season in addition to 22 goals in the midfield. Junior Chris Hughes (Oceanside, N.Y.) had an outstanding sophomore season in which he posted career-highs of 23 goals and 17 assists. Senior Mike Andreassi (Holbrook, N.Y.) had 14 goals and seven assists for the second straight season.

Junior Jake Sichenzia (Sayville, N.Y.) and sophomores Alex Corpolongo (Purdys, N.Y.) and Ryan Bitzer (Riverhead, N.Y.) also return to bolster the offensive attack.

Of the 186 goals scored last season, the 2015 squad accounted for 175 of them. More than 95 percent of last year's squad's total output returns.

On the defensive end, senior Bryan Judge (Melville, N.Y.) is the most experienced close defenseman. Judge has played in 48 of a possible 49 games with 36 starts. He has 88 ground balls and 41 caused turnovers to his credit.

Junior Frank Lucatuorto (Stony Brook, N.Y.) made the transition down low as a sophomore and accounted for 29 ground balls and 11 caused turnovers.

Junior Dylan Curry (East Meadow, N.Y.) started his career as an offensive midfielder, but flourished as a sophomore at long-stick midfielder. Curry, who also saw time on the wing on face-offs, had 47 ground balls and added three goals.

Junior Lucas Rock (Bay Shore, N.Y.) returns as one of the starting short-stick defensive midfielders. Sophomore Mark Ellis (Garden City, N.Y.) will be one of the favorites to start as a defensive midfielder.

Senior Andrew Dorsey (Clifton Park, N.Y.) could figure into the mix at close defense.

Lucatuorto and sophomore Jay Lindsay (Burlington, Ontario) are among the incumbents to take the majority of the draws in the spring.

Sophomore Hayden Johnstone (Toronto, Ontario), a member of Team Finland at last summer's World Championships, was an America East all-rookie selection last year in goal.  He posted an 11.97 goals against average and a .490 save percentage.
