SPARKS, Md. – Senior attackman Jude Brown (Bel Air, Md./John Carroll) broke the all-time assist record while senior captain Abe Hubbard (Owings, Md./Northern) tallied his 100th career point Sunday afternoon on Tierney Field at the USA Lacrosse National Headquarters.

He picked up his 100th career point with his third of the game, capping an all-Hubbard 3-0 run. The 6-2 attackman now has 75 goals and 26 assists for 101 career points
