A native of Garden City, N.Y., Gibbons led Harvard with 41 points, notching 27 goals and handing out a team-best 14 assists. He also tallied six man-up goals and stood second in the Ivy League in points and fifth in goals. Gibbons averaged 3.42 points per game, as he ranked 21st in the nation in scoring.
Gibbons scored multiple goals in nine of 12 games, including six straight contests to conclude the season. He tallied a season-best five in the season-opening win against Canisius Feb. 26 and added a four-goal effort in a victory at Holy Cross March 6.
A two-time NEILA All-New England and All-Ivy choice, Gibbons has amassed 96 points during his career on 62 goals and 34 assists.
