[MEN'S COLLEGE CUP: Georgetown] History isn't on Georgetown's side in its Men's College Cup semifinal against Maryland. The Hoyas have lost all 28 meetings with the Terrapins in a series that dates back 60 years. But all the Georgetown players know is that they beat Maryland the last time they played -- in a 2011 exhibition. "It didn't count," Hoyas coach Brian Wiese says, "but the majority of these guys' only experience against Maryland is that we won."

THREE STARS:
New York Red Bulls academy product Brandon Allen leads the Hoyas with 32 points on 15 goals and two assists. He won Big East Rookie of the Year honors and one of the favorites for Freshman of the Year honors.
 
Junior Steve Neumann is second on the team with 27 points on seven goals and a team-high 13 assists. The two-time All-Bug East first-team forward led the Hoyas in scoring with 11 goals and seven assists for 29 points in 2011.

Sophomore Tomas Gomez has a 0.74 goals-against average in goal for the Hoyas. He played for St. Louis Scott Gallagher Missouri and is contending for the starting job on the U.S. under-20 national team.
 

NUMBERS GAME:
The Hoyas' 19 wins this season is a new program record, breaking the previous mark set in 1994.

WHAT THEY'RE SAYING:
“This feeling is just awesome. This postseason has been really interesting for this team since we were expected the get there, being the three seed, but we’ve never done it before." -- Wiese.
