Four Hoyas Named Men’s Lacrosse All-BIG EAST

May 3, 2017

WASHINGTON - Georgetown University placed four standouts on the 2017 Men’s Lacrosse All-BIG EAST Teams, as announced by the league office on Wednesday. Daniel Bucaro (East Setauket, N.Y./Ward Melville), Peter Conley (Mamaroneck, N.Y./Mamaroneck) and Michael Mayer (Baltimore, Md./St. Paul’s) were all named to the first team while Craig Berge (Massapequa, N.Y./Massapequa) garnered second team honors.

All four Hoyas are repeat performers on the All-BIG EAST team and the three first team selections tie the most in program history, matching the trio chosen in 2010.

Bucaro, the 2016 BIG EAST Freshman of the Year and a second team honoree a year ago, put together one of the best offensive seasons in program history. He scored 40 goals to go with 13 assists for 53 points, giving him the seventh-most goals and 14th-most points in a single season on the Hilltop. Bucaro was twice named to the BIG EAST weekly honor roll this season and was tabbed the Offensive Player of the Week on Feb. 27, following a six-goal showing against then-No. 12 Towson. In all, he recorded 11 multi-goal games in 14 contests, including a pair of six-goal games, a four-goal outburst and five other hat tricks.

Conley continued his ascent up the record books during his redshirt junior season at Georgetown. He was also named First Team All-BIG EAST as a freshman in 2014, the first Hoya to do so as a rookie, and set career highs in all statistical categories this season. Conley tallied a career-high 27 goals to go with 18 assists for 45 points, as well as collecting 33 ground balls and causing eight turnovers. He has compiled 77 goals, 43 assists and 120 points during his time in the Nation’s Capital, ranking him tied for 13th all-time in career goals, as well as 16th in both career assists and career points.

 

 

Mayer earned second team honors at close defense as a sophomore in 2015 and made the successful transition to long stick midfielder as a senior. He led the BIG EAST in caused turnovers with 19 and was fourth in the league in ground balls per game with 3.79. His 53 ground balls were the most for any non-faceoff specialist in the conference. For his career, Mayer ranks fourth all-time in caused turnovers with 42 and 22nd in ground balls with 122.

Berge repeats as a second team All-BIG EAST selection after earning the same accolade during his All-American freshman season in 2015. He scored 14 goals to go with 12 assists for 26 points while hauling in 28 ground balls.

Georgetown went 4-10 overall with a 1-4 mark in BIG EAST play. The Hoyas return 36 players for the 2018 campaign, including seven starters.
