Rutgers eyes strong finish in Big Ten Tournament tuneup game against Ohio State

The Rutgers men’s lacrosse team had a fittingly feel-good finish to its 2015 season. Already eliminated from conference tournament play after dropping their first four Big Ten games, the Scarlet Knights welcomed then-No. 10 Ohio State, who was still vying for the No. 2 seed in the Big Ten, to Piscataway on the last day of the regular season.

Junior Christian Trasolini has 10 goals and four assists in his first season as a midfielder. In his first two seasons as an attacker, he scored 53 goals total.

Junior embraces position change to midfield

Having too many capable players at one position is a problem that any head coach would welcome with open arms.  That predicament, in regards to the attack unit, faced head coach Brian Brecht as the No. 16 Rutgers men's lacrosse team was preparing to embark on its 2016 campaign. Last season the Scarlet Knights' attack was the strongest unit on its team, with its 10.33 goals per game average finishing at No. 3 in the Big Ten and in the upper half of teams in the country in the regular season.  All three of the Knights' starting attackers scored more than 20 goals, with then-junior Scott Bieda leading the way with 30, then-sophomore Christian Trasolini with 26 and then-freshman Jules Heningburg with 21.

Rutgers tames Nittany Lions in thrilling 15-14 contest to clinch spot in Big Ten Tournament

Senior Scott Bieda found fellow attacker redshirt freshman Adam Charalambides at point blank range on the right side of the goal.  With two defenders converging on him, Charalambides just barely got off a shot aimed at the top left of the net as he was falling to the ground, but Penn State goalie Will Schreiner stood tall and made the stop. As Schreiner corralled the ball and tossed it to teammate Tripp Traynor, sophomore attacker Jules Heningburg came out of nowhere from behind the net to deflect the pass into the air, catch the ball in his stick, square his body and blast a clean shot from 8 feet out past Schreiner all in one motion. It was Heningburg's career-high 6th goal of the game and gave the Rutgers men's lacrosse its first lead of the night over the Nittany Lions after fighting an uphill battle for 52-plus minutes of action.  Heningburg's relentless sequence was the epitome of the Scarlet Knights' play Friday night, they simply would not be denied.  The No. 19 Knights (10-3, 3-1) fought back from deficits of five and four in each respective half to take down No. 17 Penn State (7-6, 1-3) 15-14 in front of 2,328 on Senior Night at High Point Solutions Stadium.  Jules Heningburg led the way with 6 goals and 2 assists, while Scott Bieda scored and dished out 3 goals of his own. With the win Rutgers captured the Friendship Cup from the Nittany Lions for the first time since 2010, reached double digit wins for the fifth time in program history and, most importantly, clinched its first ever trip to the Big Ten Tournament. After the home finale the Knights' 10 seniors were honored upon capping off a perfect 7-0 season at High Point Solutions Stadium in 2016. "It's just absolutely unreal," Bieda said on finishing his home career with a comeback, signature win.(Zack) Sikora made an unreal speech when we were at the diner just saying how we've worked so hard in this stadium and on this field.

Sophomore attacker Jules Heningburg has 31 goals and has nearly doubled his assist total from last season with 15 in 2016.

Sophomore rounds out offensive game over offseason

With a team currently stacked with underclassmen Brian Brecht won't have to make too many changes to his lineups next season. But when the Rutgers men's lacrosse team's head coach is constructing his attack unit in advance of the 2017 season, he won't be able to pencil in a name that has been a staple of the Scarlet Knights offense for the past four years.  Senior attacker Scott Bieda has been a do-it-all kind of player for the Knights ever since he stepped on the field for the first time as a Knight back in 2011.

Sophomore midfielder Christian Mazzone is 1 of 4 short-stick midfielders on Rutgers’ rope unit. He has 31 ground balls and 6 goals this season.

Rope unit excels on both sides of field for Rutgers

At the beginning of every game they're standing on the sidelines rather than on the field in the starting lineup, but they've played an integral role in the No. 18 Rutgers men's lacrosse team (9-2, 2-0) breakout 2016 season.  Meet the Scarlet Knights' rope unit.
