The work to develop him in there is just starting to pay off, and that was one of the keys to the Hoos defensive improvements later in the season. Rather not have to replace both Kology and Kastner at close, in front of a freshman goalie. Bower has a good stick, and good wheels, I’d look at him as a possible option at LSM. He’s looked like he likes to get involved in transition and has scored a few goals too. Regardless, Conners was one of the best to play LSM at UVA, and a leader in the program off-field. It won’t be easy to replace him.
