Attack

Billy Bitter Junior North Carolina
The explosive junior had 40 points (20 goals, 20 assists) despite drawing much of the opposing defense's attention. The two-time ACC Player of the Week is the toughest match-up in D-I. He earned ACC Player of the-Year honors.

Rob Pannell Sophomore Cornell
The leading point-getter for the Big Red amassed 70 points (25g, 45a). He was a two-time Ivy League Player of the Week, was named the league's Player of the Year, and ran the offense as a sophomore.

Max Quinzani Senior Duke
All-ACC for a third time. He scored a total of 69 points on the year (57g, 12a), good for third in the nation. The four-year starter averaged 4.3 points per game, including an 11-point outing against Sacred Heart in the Blue Devils' last regular season game.

Curtis Dickson Senior Delaware
Scored 75 points (62g, 13a) on the year. His 62 goals are first in the nation and included a recent five-goal performance against Towson in the CAA finals. A three-time first team selection, he was chosen as Player of the Year in the CAA. The Delaware career goal leader has scored a point in 56 straight contests.

Midfield

Kevin Crowley Junior Stony Brook
His 71 points (46g, 25a) ranks second in the country. Crowley was a three-time first-team all-conference selection as well as the unanimous selection as America East Player of the Year in 2010. The high-scoring midfielder led the Seawolves to an unbeaten conference record and their highest ranking in school history.

Shamel Bratton Junior Virginia
His 32 points (17g, 15a) rank third on the Cavalier squad despite an early-season injury. The third year starter's explosive speed makes him one of the most dangerous players in the game, which was evident in his five-point performance against Duke in the ACC tournament.

Jeremy Thompson Junior Syracuse
Scored 23 points (15g, 8a) while being a do-it-all midfielder for the Orange. His 44 ground balls are second on the team, and he has won face-offs at a 58 percent clip. Always a threat to score off the face-off, Thompson is an old-school midfielder who has led Syracuse to 13 wins.

Michael Kimmel Senior Johns Hopkins
One of only four Johns Hopkins midfielders to amass 50 goals and 50 assists during their careers. The captain tallied 39 points (23g, 16a) this year while constantly drawing the opposition's best defender.

Mike Chanenchuk Freshman Princeton
The redshirt freshman exploded on the scene this year, garnering first team all-Ivy League and Rookie of the-Year honors. Chanenchuk tallied 36 points (28g, 8a) while helping the Tigers capture the Ivy League tournament title.
