Requiem for a Season: Detroit Titans 2014

Detroit’s season in 2014 wasn’t so different from the 2013 outcome. Sure, the Titans made the NCAA Tournament and gave Notre Dame a run for their money in the previous year, but it took a magical late-season run to get to that point (and said run erased some bad memories of other games earlier in the year).

This season played out basically the same, but UDM didn’t finish that first game in the MAAC Tournament to get there. Several years into the program, you’d like to see them take the next step, rather than stagnate, of course. Still, the year wasn’t a disaster nor was it a rousing success.

Regardless of all that, next year will happen with a different man in charge. Headman Matt Holtz surprisingly resigned at the end of May, and defensive coordinator Chris Kolon has ascended to the top spot.

Let’s take a quick look at the Titans’ statistical profile:

Detroit Titans 2014
Detroit Opponents
Faceoff Wins 127 Faceoff Wins 185
Clearing 227-286 Clearing 214-252
Possessions 451 Possessions 496
Goals 128 Goals 135
Offensive Efficiency .284
.261 adj
Offensive Efficiency .272
.293 adj

The Titans were actually better offensively than opponents (thanks to a goal-filler like Shayne Adams on one side, and goal-preventer Jason Weber on the other), but their deficit in possession helped lead to the disappointing 6-8 record. There’s also something to be said for doing that against the second-easiest schedule in the nation.

What Went Well

the breakout star this year for Detroit was goalie Jason Weber. He missed three games to start the year thanks to disciplinary issues, but once he got back on the field, he was nothing short of dominant. He saved .642 of shots faced, to lead the NCAA by .020 (a large margin), and did so behind a defense that was pretty good, but probably not as good as those for other top keepers. He was a revelation from the first time he stepped foot on the field, and was just a freshman. The Titans’ goalkeeping is in good hands.

Shayne Adams did the Shayne Adams thing, pouring in goals left and right. He finished with 42 on the year with 7 assists, and did so on efficient shooting (74.7% of his shots were on goal, and 42.4% scored). He’s put in positions to score, sure, but damn if he didn’t make the most of those opportunities.

Defensive depth was pretty good, with several different poles (and short-stick defensive middies) getting into the action from time to time, and building for the future. With Nick Garippa and Troy Dennis (SSDM) and Brian Smith (LSM/D) the only players leaving due to graduation from that side of the ball, the future is bright.

Room for Improvement

The name of the game is possession, and it’s a game that Detroit is not very good at. The Titans trotted out the No. 55 (of 67) faceoff unit, and the No. 63 clear. While they had an average ride, two bad units is a lot to cancel out, and they couldn’t do it. The faceoff specialists – especially Damien Hicks – seemed to show promise from game to game, but consistency there and better wing play are key.

Behind every poor possession game is a high turnover rate, and that was Detroit’s biggest struggle this year. The Titans committed 248 turnovers – that’s on 55.5% of possessions – and there’s main source of the struggles. Getting the ball from the defensive end to the offensive end, and taking care of it when you get there are necessary to putting it into the net behind the other team’s goalie.

A similar issue – and there’s some philosophical debate about how big an issue it is, if planned for – is inaccurate shooting. Mike Birney took a big step back in that respect this year. He was carrying a bit more of the offensive load, but it took him 113 shots and only 49 on goal to reach 18 scores. It doesn’t matter if a player can shoot 114 miles an hour if it’s sailing over the crossbar on worse than every other attempt.

Detroit also developed a nasty habit of playing down to their competition, without playing up to better competition frequently enough. A one-goal win over Mercer, a two-goal win over VMI, one-goal win over Wagner, five-goal loss to Marquette, loss to Manhattan… while a win is a win in most respects, closer-than-expected wins also point to the program not growing past a scrappy underdog stage, to a degree.

Despite not playing takewaway lacrosse anymore, the Titans were still fairly penalty-prone. It took a step in the right direction this season, but like with the offensive care for the ball, a small dose more discipline can lead to big improvements in games.

The Distant Future

Fortunately, a year with some growing pains should help the Titans take a step forward next year. They have to replace the majority of their defensive midfielders (though I did pick a non-starter in JD Hess for the All-GLS team at that position over graduating Garippa), a couple attackmen including primary ball-carrier Alex Maini, and… not much else.

What the Titans need is to see that talent take the next step, and translate into even better results on the field. They’ve taken baby steps in the past couple offseasons, and a larger step with Adams, Birney, D-poles Joe Gifford and Chris Shevins, and attackmen Scott Drummon and Brandon Beauregard all coming into their senior season is the expectation.

With stability in the coaching staff – Kolon was promoted to become the head coach, so the defensive philosophy (which changed from heavy-pressure to more relaxed with a ball-stopped like Weber available) won’t change much – the Titans should be able to keep plugging along the road of improvement they’ve been taking without too much of a change.

If the faceoffs and clear can just take the smallest steps toward average (something I’ve been predicting for a few years now), and the offense can become a little tighter with the ball, UDM can really turn some heads next year.

Michigan 5, Fairfield 12

Like with the final UDM recap of the year, I’m not going into extreme detail on this game. I’ll have a bit more, since I was there to see it happen, but with a game months ago, it’s best to just recap for the sake of thoroughness and move along.

Tempo Free

From the official box score, a look at the tempo-free stats:

Fairfield 2014 ECAC Tournament
Michigan Fairfield
Faceoff Wins 7 Faceoff Wins 14
Clearing 16-18 Clearing 13-18
Possessions 30 Possessions 34
Goals 5 Goals 12
Offensive Efficiency .167 Offensive Efficiency .353

Michigan played pretty fast this year, and this was below their average. Through the first three quarters, it seemed like it would be well below average pace (40 possessions at that point), but the floodgates opened, and it turned into a lopsided, normal-paced game against a slow Fairfield team.

Notes

Brad Lott was up-and-down during the season. When he was good, he was very good. When he wasn’t, the faceoff unit as a whole naturally struggled. He was just OK on the clamp in this game, and with the other aspects of Michigan’s faceoff unit, that’s not good enough to see success. Most of Fairfield’s advantage was built up on the fourth-quarter run, but it’s a good faceoff man’s duty to help prevent those runs from happening, too. Michigan made up some of the possession deficit by being very strong on the ride, leveling things off a bit.

“We need to be consistent there,” said Michigan coach John Paul. “It’s everything, not just Brad. Our wings need to do a better job, we’re not doing a good job on 50/50 balls, and it’s something that will be a focus going into next year.”

Of course, U-M’s inability to score – and later, once the Stags got going, to prevent Fairfield from scoring – made the difference in this game. 20 of 33 shots went on goal for the Maize and Blue (nine in the second quarter, when Michigan could have captured a bit of momentum with better shot placement.

Ian King’s two goals paced the squad (one on the EMO). Brendan Gaughan’s shift to midfield at the end of the year finished well with a goal on five shots (four on goal). Goalie Robbie Zonino continued his late run of nice play with 15 saves and 12 goals allowed.

“This was Robbie’s best game of the year,” Paul said. “He didn’t change anything, and really they scored three empty-net goals [against the 10-man ride] at the end, so he actually had an amazing day. He stepped up when we needed him to step up.”

Fairfield’s run was the primary story in this one. It was anybody’s game through three quarters, with the Stags leading 5-3. Two quick goals to start the fourth set the tone, and though Michigan got one back, it seemed like that 7-3 lead would be too much to overcome, and it ballooned late when Michigan pressed a bit and couldn’t get faceoff wins.

“The gameplan coming in  was only to 10-man when they won the faceoff back,” Paul said. “Then we got behind and started 10-manning, because we knew we’re not going to get a whole lot of possessions. Once the clock was ticking, we had to start manufacturing stuff.”

U-M learned that they could hang with talented teams, but that they were still a few steps from winning many of those games. The offseason should be the difference in adding the necessary talent and developing what’s already on the roster to take that next step.

Up Next

Michigan’s season ended with a suddenness over the second half of this game, but there’s no denying it was a solid step forward for the program as a whole. Making it into the postseason is a boost (and will be tougher next year in a loaded Big Ten), and U-M can grow from that.

“I think we take a lot,” Paul said. “Our guys didn’t really approach this any differently than any other game. They came in pretty confident, and I loved our attitude coming into this game. You have to feel confident and play that way, and we were and we did.”

Moving along, I’ll decompress the season and look into the future with a new offensive coordinator and yet another signing class under the team’s belt.

Detroit 9, Marist 11

Not going into extreme depth on this one, because 1) it was months ago 2) I didn’t get a chance to see it, and 3) with a new coach in the house, it might not apply that much to the future anyway. Writing it up for the sake of completeness/thoroughness.

Tempo Free

From the official box score, a look at the tempo-free stats:

Marist 2014 MAAC Tournament
Detroit Marist
Faceoff Wins 9 Faceoff Wins 14
Clearing 16-19 Clearing 14-14
Possessions 28 Possessions 31
Goals 9 Goals 11
Offensive Efficiency .321 Offensive Efficiency .355

This was a slow game, and Marist had the majority of the possessions thanks to facing off fairly well and riding Detroit enough to prevent any chance of making up that gap. The difference in efficiencies existed but wasn’t significant, and the possession game accounted for most of the difference.

Notes

What made this one hurt (aside from the obvious “it ended the season”) was that UDM led by two goals with four minutes left. Detroit had possession with about five minutes left, turned it over, and only touched the ball once again before the end of the game (which led to a single shot with no backup when the score was Marist 10, Detroit 9).

Turnovers – as they were for much of the season – were the story of this one, to an extent. Aside from the obvious anecdotal piece above, UDM committed 11 total in the game to Marist’s 5. Only two of the Titans’ turnovers were forced, and they didn’t cause any coming the other way. In a possession game, that razor-thin margin is the difference.

Jason Weber was strong with 16 saves and 11 goals against. It’s always tough to tell just how good the defense was around him (they play a part in forcing Marist to get off bad shots), but they didn’t stuff the statsheet, with one total GB and one turnover for the starters.

The offensive star of the day (no surprise) was Shayne Adams, who had six goals on nine shots (seven of them on goal). Alex Maini contributed three assists for UDM, and didn’t commit any turnovers.

For Marist, Drew Nesmith and Joseph Radin had three goals and an assist apiece. Goalie Dave Scarcello made 15 saves while allowing nine goals.

Up Next

This game ended the season – and if it had gone the other way, the narrative of the year might have been something different, like we’d seen the previous year with the Titans making the NCAA Tournament and erasing memories of an up-and-down regular season – and within a month, Titans coach Matt Holtz resigned (for unknown reasons, since the results were about in line with what you’d expect, if slightly on the disappointing side for 2014).

Moving along, I’ll decompress the season and look into the future and the Chris Kolon era.

The Next Level: All-GLS team 2014

The second annual team consisting of the best performers in Division-1 who hailed from the state of Michigan. Any disagreements, perceived omissions, etc., feel free to debate them in the comments.

Goalie

Connor Flynn
Rockford
Freshman/Detroit

Flynn played barely more than two total games between the pipes this year (121 minutes), but that’s more than anyone else from the state played – only Penn freshman Ahmed Iftikhar, who redshirted this season, is a goalie from Michigan – and Flynn’s stats weren’t bad. He was passed by other goalies on the UDM roster after the first two games, but has potential.

Defense

Mack Gembis
Cranbrook
Junior/Michigan

Michigan’s defense wasn’t great this season – only No. 55 nationally, adjusted for schedule strength – but the Wolverines had a couple standout defensemen. Gembis was one, causing nearly five times as many turnovers (14) as he committed (three). He also had a healthy ground ball output, and didn’t commit a single penalty all season.

Joe Gifford
Notre Dame Prep
Junior/Detroit

Gifford was Detroit’s best close defenseman from in-state (and only the Wolverines and Titans played any close defenders from Michigan). He was a 14-game starter for the country’s No. 22 defense, and although he was a bit turnover-prone (eight committed), he caused opponents to be the same with 13 takeaways.

Chris Walker
Brother Rice
Sophomore/Michigan

Walker was Michigan’s most productive defender statistically (not always a good thing, since U-M’s defense overall was mediocre and it’s more important to keep opponents off the scoresheet than make it yourself). Just a sophomore, he started every game for the Maize and Blue and took on plenty of responsibility. His growth potential with more depth on D is most exciting for Wolverines fans.

Midfield

Mike Birney
Detroit Catholic Central
Junior/Detroit

Birney took a major step back after an exceptional sophomore season. He launched more shots than he did the previous season, and connected on far fewer of them (as a percentage). Part of that is because he was being relied upon to do more than he had in the previous season, but part is needing to fine-tune his shooting accuracy and picking his spots, rather than letting his 114MPH cannon speak for itself.

Scott Drummond
Birmingham Seaholm
Junior/Detroit

With Birney’s slight step back, Drummond was able to step up and become UDM’s most productive player in the midfield. He had a nice balance between scoring himself and assisting, and was more careful with the ball. Detroit’s depth is starting to build, and trotting out an impressive midfield line will help the program going forward.

Sergio Perkovic
Brother Rice
Freshman/Notre Dame

Perkovic was an every-game starter for the No. 5 offensive unit in the country, an impressive enough feat in itself. He wasn’t extremely productive individually until later in the season, but stepped up bigtime. He scored five goals in the NCAA title game, and the future is bright for a player who just accomplished what he did in his first year on the college field.

Attack

Brandon Beauregard
Notre Dame Prep
Junior/Detroit

Like many of Detroit’s offensive players, Beauregard was a bit turnover-prone, but he had a nice offensive output to balance that struggle. He had nice effort on the ride (a phase of the game Detroit used off-and-on last spring), and was the top Michigan-native attackman on the roster.

JP Forester
Brother Rice
Freshman/Richmond

Only a few Michigan natives played in the NCAA Tournament, and coming into the year you wouldn’t have expected a kid at a first-year program to be one of them. Forester started all but one game for Richmond, and was a deadly finisher (as much as the Spiders had one). He was a bit sloppy with 32 turnovers committed, but that’s to be expected when the overall talent level on the team needs to rise with more D-1 experience.

Tommy McKee
Holt
Junior/Air Force

McKee’s production took another step forward as the Academy put together the No. 12 offense in the country. His 43 points was more than anyone else in Division-1 who played high school lacrosse in Michigan. McKee’s output could have been even greater had he not missed a couple of games for the Falcons.

Specialists

Joe Kemp - Faceoff Specialist
Troy Athens
Junior/Sacred Heart

With Danny Henneghan graduating at Penn State, the Great Lax State didn’t have a top FOGO in D-1 this spring, and Kemp was the best of limited options. His .455 win rate was best on his team (wing play was clearly an issue), and he took more draws than anyone else from Michigan.

Dakota Sherman - Long-Stick Midfield
Cranbrook
Junior/Michigan

Sherman put together a nice year statistically while playing mostly LSM (he kicked back to close D on a couple occasions, if memory serves me correctly). His 12 caused turnovers were strong for a Michigan defense that didn’t rely on heavy pressure, and he even managed to get off four shots (though he didn’t score).

JD Hess - Short-Stick Defensive Midfield
Birmingham Seaholm
Redshirt Freshman/Detroit

Hess may not have been Detroit’s top Michigan-native short-stick defensive middie last year (that honor, as it has in the past, goes to Nick Garippa), but his value of the ball gives him the honor. He had better defensive statistics than Garippa – eight CTs and 17 ground balls – but also better offensive statistics with just six turnovers committed. He gets the nod.

Offensive Player of the Year

Sergio Perkovic
Brother Rice
Freshman/Notre Dame

Past recipients of this award (Air Force’s Tommy McKee and Detroit’s Mike Birney) are both still in college, but it’s time for some new blood. A Michigan native making a big impact for one of the country’s best offenses – not to discount McKee’s contributions to the Falcons’ underrated O – is exciting, and especially so when he’s a freshman. Perkovic’s best ball came at the end of the year, and if the result of the NCAA Title game had been different, he would likely have been the MVP of that game.

Defensive Player of the Year

Chris Walker
Brother Rice
Sophomore/Michigan

Michigan’s defense was no bueno, but I wouldn’t blame Walker too much. While the statistical picture only tells part of the story for close defenders (preventing your man from getting a shot doesn’t show up anywhere on the scoresheet), and U-M’s D was slow to react at times, the caliber of offenses they faced – and the adjustment period for Robbie Zonino to the college game – made things look a bit worse for the individuals than they were. Walker stuffed the sheet as much as any pole from the state, and with limited options, he takes the mantle.

Debate away. The full final stats can be seen here.
