En route to leading the Blue Devils to a second straight NCAA Championship, he became the first player in ACC history and 12th in the NCAA history to record 100 points in a season as he finished with 103. His 64 goals this past season rank fourth in Duke single-season history, while the 103 points are tied for eighth in the NCAA single-season records book.

Wolf departs Duke ranked second in Duke and ACC history in career points (304) and third among all Blue Devils in career goals (183). He is the ninth player in NCAA history to reach the 300-point benchmark for his career and ranks eighth in all-time scoring on the NCAA charts. Wolf scored at least a point in 76 of his 81 outings and in each of his final 61 games. Over his four seasons, Duke amassed a 62-19 record, won the 2012 ACC title, advanced to four NCAA semifinals and ultimately won the 2013 and 2014 NCAA titles.
