Three Virginia Cavaliers on 2012 All-ACC Men's Lacrosse Team

Steele Stanwick is one of three Cavaliers to be named All-ACC this year.

Despite having the lowest seed of the ACC Tournament, Maryland leads the way with four Terrapins on the 2012 All-ACC Men's Lacrosse Team. Virginia and Duke follow with three each, while North Carolina lands one. For the Cavaliers, it's seniors Steele Stanwick and Colin Briggs, as well as junior Chris LaPierre. All three Hoos are Tewaaraton Trophy nominees.

It is the third All-ACC honor for Stanwick, the reigning Tewaaraton winner, and the second for Briggs and LaPierre.

Stanwick leads the conference with 57 points, coming from 18 goals and a league- (and nationwide)-high 39 assists. No doubt about it that he is the conference's top player, and he's at least arguably the best in the country.

Briggs, the 2011 NCAA Tournament Most Outstanding Player, put together 16 goals and 14 assists for 30 points. LaPierre led the team with 50 ground balls.

Noticeably absent from the list is Virginia senior attackman Chris Bocklet. Bocklet leads the conference with 29 goals in just 12 games. Duke's Josh Dionne, Robert Rotanz and Jordan Wolf follow with 28, 27 and 26 goals respectively, but needed 14 games to do so. Rotanz and Wolf were both named to the all-conference team. Bocklet also leads the conference in game-winning goals (4), shots per game (7.33), and man-up goals per game (0.42).

Virginia takes on third-seeded and ninth-ranked North Carolina in the ACC Tournament this weekend in Charlottesville.
