Nolting leads all freshman nationally with 4.91 points and 2.55 assists per outing. Already boasting 26 goals and 28 assists, the Colorado native is on the verge of becoming the first Panther and Southern Conference student-athlete to produce a 30-goal, 30-assist campaign.

This makes two straight Thursdays on which Nolting has earned a prestigious national honor. Just a week ago, the attackman was added to the Tewaaraton Watch List.

The Panthers head to Air Force this weekend to take on the Falcons on Saturday at 2:00 p.m. EST as Nolting will play his first collegiate game in his home state.
