The 2002 Profs leapt out of the gates with three consecutive shutouts and never looked back. A 4-3 win over Messiah gave Rowan a key win, and 11 more victories, with five by shutout, followed to close the regular season. Two clean sheets in the NJAC tournament gave the Profs the title and the top seed in the NCAA tournament. There, Rowan advanced to the final weekend with a pair of wins in New Jersey. An overtime win over Salisbury, a team Rowan had defeated 2-0 earlier in the year, moved the Profs to the final, where a second win over Messiah, this time by 1-0, gave Rowan their first NCAA title.
