- Dagoberto Diaz has been one of the Falcons top players this season and has performed as one of the NACC's top players as well. Diaz has 29 points (10G, 9A) in nine league matches, which is tied with Nick Kapetanos of Benedictine for most points in NACC play. Colin Dibb has also been strong in NACC play, posting 22 points for the Falcons, which ranks seventh in the league.

- The Falcons ability to win close games is why they are in position to capture a NACC title. CUW is 3-0 in OT matches in NACC play this season, winning all three within the first four minutes of OT.
