BUFFALO, N.Y. – The Marist men’s lacrosse team started off the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference (MAAC) Tournament weekend in style, taking home four major awards and having seven members named to All-MAAC Teams. Connor Rice (Penfield, N.Y.) was named the Offensive Player of the Year while Joseph Radin (Long Beach, N.Y.) was selected as the Rookie of the Year. Additionally, Patrick Eaker (Redding, Conn.) was named the Co-Long Stick Midfielder of the Year and head coach Keegan Wilkinson was selected as the Anaconda Sports MAAC Coach of the Year. All awards were voted by league’s head coaches.

Rice leads the MAAC in assists per game (2.15) and points per game (3.62) finishing the regular season with 28 assists and 47 points. His assist per game mark is currently 12th best in the nation. His 28 helpers this season are a career-high and put him in a tie for ninth for most assists in a single season in the Marist record books. He also has 19 goals this year and needs one more for his third 20-goal season of his career. Rice was named the MAAC Offensive Player of the Week twice in 2013.

Radin ranks in the top-ten in the league in points per game (2.46) and assists per game (0.92). He scored a career-high four goals against MAAC foe Canisius on March 23. He was tied for second on the Red Foxes in both goals (20) and assists (12) while ranking third in points (32). Radin was named MAAC Rookie of the Week five times this season.

Eaker finished the regular season with 35 ground balls and 17 caused turnovers for the Red Foxes. He was second on the team in both categories. Eaker also contributed four points on a goal and three assists, scoring his first career goal on March 8 at Towson in a 10-9 overtime victory.

In just his second season as head coach, Wilkinson has led the Red Foxes to a 10-3 record, the most wins since the 2004 season, and a share of the MAAC Regular Season Championship with a 5-1 record within the conference. Under the guidance of Wilkinson and his staff, Marist ranks in the top 20 nationally in 10 team statistical categories.

Seniors Jack Doherty (Yorktown Heights, N.Y.) and Ethan Fox (Yorktown Heights, N.Y.) both joined Rice on the All-MAAC First Team.

Doherty has scored a team-high 32 goals this season, his third consecutive year with at least 30 goals. He is also tied for second on the team with 12 assists, giving him 44 points on the season. He has scored goals in all 13 games this season, including multiple goals on 11 different occasions. He needs just seven more goals to become the fifth Red Fox to score 100 goals in a Marist uniform.  

A team captain this season, Fox has led a stingy Marist defense this year, often drawing the challenge of guarding the opponent’s top offensive player. He has responded by leading the team with 19 caused turnovers while scooping up 35 ground balls, tied for the second on the team.

Marist had three more players – seniors Jim Marks (Camillus, N.Y.) and T.J. McDermott (Brewster, N.Y.) and sophomore Drew Nesmith (Montclair, N.J.) - named to the All-MAAC Second Team.

Marks is fourth on the Red Foxes in assists (11), fifth on the team in points (27) and sixth in goals (16). On four different occasions he scored multiple goals in a game and had a season-high four points on a goal and three assists in the regular season finale at Manhattan. McDermott, a 2013 team captain, has totaled 23 ground balls and four caused turnovers. He has helped lead a defense that leads the MAAC in goals against average (9.23) and has a .900 clearing percentage. Nesmith has had a strong sophomore campaign, finishing the regular season fourth on the team in points (28), tied for fourth in goals (19) and fifth in assists (nine). He has scored multiple goals in six games this year and had a career-high seven points on four goals and three assists against Manhattan in the regular season finale.

Additionally, four Red Foxes were named to the All-Academic Team. Seniors Fox, Vin Chiodo (Garden City, N.Y.), Shane Jaeger (Ellicott City, Md.) and junior Gannon Osborn (Canandaigua, N.Y.) all earned the academic honor. It is the third selection for both Chiodo and Fox, second for Osborn and first for Jaeger. To be eligible for the MAAC All-Academic Team, a student athlete must complete two semesters at their institution and hold a cumulative grade point average of 3.20 on a 4.0 scale.

The top-seeded Red Foxes will play fourth-seeded Detroit in the first semifinal at 4:15 p.m. on Friday at Canisius’ Demske Sports Complex. The game will be broadcast live on ESPN3. The second semifinal will feature second-seeded Jacksonville and third-seeded Siena.
