University of Albany Men's Lacrosse: Lyle Thompson’s Breaks NCAA DI All-Time Scoring Record - UAlbany sports 2015

ALBANY, N.Y. – On a warm Tuesday night in Rhode Island, Lyle Thompson became the new NCAA Division I all-time scoring leader, adding another notch to the belt of one of the greatest players in collegiate men’s lacrosse history. Thompson’s assist to Connor Fields in the second quarter against Bryant gave him point #355 in his career to break Rob Pannell’s record. Thompson, who currently stands with 357 points off 155 goals and 202 assists, earned the record in just 63 games. In his career, along with the all-time scoring record, Thompson has earned a share of the Tewaaraton Trophy with his brother Miles Thompson, holds the single season scoring record, including two of the top four scoring seasons in DI history, is tied for the NCAA single season assists record and is just 19 assists away from matching the NCAA DI all-time assists record. After playing in the UAlbany midfield as a freshman and scoring 38 points, Thompson exploded as a member of the attack corps, leading all of Division I points per game the past three seasons: 6.65 points per game as a sophomore, 7.11 points per game as a junior and 6.5 points per game so far in his senior season.
