Maryland counted a convincing win against a top-10 opponent to earn NCAA.com Men’s Lacrosse Team of the Week honors for games played March 3 through March 9.
The Terrapins (4-1) trounced then-No. 10 Princeton 11-4 behind a hat trick from sophomore Matt Rambo and resistance steered by Big 10 Defensive Player of the Week Casey Ikeda.
Maryland led 3-2 at halftime, but used a six-goal run, including three goals over the span of 1:26 and two goals from Jay Carlson that came just nine seconds apart, to open a commanding 10-3 lead.
The run was keyed by All-American faceoff specialist Charlie Raffa, who won seven of nine faceoffs in the third quarter and 13 of 20 during the game.
Maryland visits No. 15 Villanova Saturday, March 14.
