Inside Lacrosse picked a few of its Power 100 freshmen who had standout performances this weekend, with UMass men's lacrosse attackman Nick Mariano among those highlighted. Mariano had six points to help UMass defeat Brown, 15-2 on Saturday. Here is what Inside Lacrosse had to say about Mariano's play this season:
Mariano is simply on fire at this point. He scored five goals and one assist in UMass' 15-2 romp over Brown (photos here). He's on the short list for Rookie of the Year, and is leading the Minutemen's resurgence with 15 points through four games.
