Matt Gibson, Yale

Senior, Point Lookout, N.Y., attackman

Gibson powered the Bulldogs to their first NCAA tournament appearance since 1992 by leading them to the Ivy League tournament title. The 5-foot-10, 175-pound attackman racked up 14 points in victories over Cornell and Princeton in the tournament. Gibson recorded eight assists in Yale's 14-10 defeat of the Big Red in the semifinals, which tied the single-game school record for assists set by Jason O'Neill in 1990. Gibson followed that performance with a two-goal, four-assist display in the Bulldogs' 15-7 thumping of the Tigers in the final. The two-time Ivy League first-team selection was named the tournament's Most Valuable Player.
