We want more ... Marr.

Kyle Marr, a junior attackman for the Johns Hopkins men’s lacrosse team, scored five — count ’em, five — fourth-quarter goals in succession to lead the Blue Jays back from a five-goal deficit against Georgetown in an NCAA tournament first-round game Sunday.

Marr, who also had two assists, has been named the Warrior/US Lacrosse Player of the Week for his effort in the comeback, which set the stage for Shack Stanwick to win it in overtime. Hopkins prevailed 10-9 and advanced to the NCAA quarterfinals, where it will face Duke with a chance to advance to championship weekend for the first time since 2015.

Marr, the son of Albany coach Scott Marr, leads the Blue Jays with 55 points (39 goals, 16 assists) this season.
