Jack Gannon's development as UMBC's primary playmaker shouldn't be too surprising considering his roots as a point guard in basketball. The sophomore midfielder leads the Retrievers (6-5 overall and 2-1 in the America East) in assists with 18 and ranks second in points with 35 and credits his evolution as a player to his days running the varsity basketball team at Sachem High School North in Lake Ronkonkoma, N.Y. “When I played basketball growing up, I was a point guard. So I was always looking to feed and that translated into lacrosse,” Gannon said Monday.

It's no surprise that the starting attack and midfield have fueled UMBC this season, but the team needs more output from its second midfield. The unit's ineffectiveness has been especially noticeable in the Retrievers' two games in the America East. In a 12-11 overtime decision over Stony Brook on March 28 and a 13-7 loss to Binghamton on Sunday, the second midfield has combined for zero goals on four shots and one assist.
