Lacrosse attackman Pat Spencer broke his own Loyola and Patriot League records this year by tallying 114 points, finishing his career with 11 points (six goals, five assists) against Penn State in the NCAA Tournament quarterfinals.

In May, he became the first Greyhound ever to win the Tewaaraton Award. He transferred to Northwestern for his final year of eligibility and became an immediate impact player … in basketball.
