Yesterday was the Patriot League’s turn to showcase their talent. Loyola beat Army, Bucknell dominated Lehigh, and Holy Cross beat Boston University for the sixth and final spot in the Patriot League Tournament. Today and tomorrow, it’s everyone else, and a major theme here is defense, because they win championships. Let’s get right to the games: SATURDAY #6 Albany @ #4 Yale – Noon This would be the Game of…

Here’s a scary stat: 84% of the regular season has been complete. 16% of the regular season remains. Some teams still have a game, or two, or maybe three left. But many teams also have their respective conference tournaments to participate in as well. They’ll get started next week with the Patriot and ACC tourneys happening, with the other conference tournaments occurring in two weeks. This year’s field for at-large…

With so much drama in the ACC, it’s kinda hard getting into the NCAA Tournament scene. But they, somehow, some way, keep coming up with interesting storylines every single day. I’m no Snoop Dogg, but if you use your imagination and tinker the first four lines of Gin And Juice with ACC references, it’s actually a pretty good summary of the conference’s season. Except Notre Dame, who’s sitting comfortably as…

Is it too early to start predicting brackets? Some may say yes, others the opposite. Joe Lunardi already has a way too early 2017 NCAA Basketball Tournament Bracketology, and we just got done the hoops tournament last week! Teams don’t know if they’ll lose someone to either the NBA Draft or to transfers or even who they might gain via transfers and commitments. But in lacrosse, we have less than…

We’re starting the final stretch of the season with under a month until Selection Sunday for the NCAA Tournament. Unlike last year, it’s a very wide open field, with only two ACC teams in the top 15 in RPI. Some early Bracketology projections have Notre Dame and Syracuse in, with some even including Virginia. Except for Notre Dame, the ACC is on the bubble for some spots, with UNC and…

The Charlotte Hounds of Major League Lacrosse today officially introduced Jim Stagnitta as the team’s new Head Coach for 2016. He becomes just the second coach in the Hounds’ five-year history, as former Head Coach Mike Cerino recently transitioned into the General Manager role. The Hounds today also announced their assistant coaching staff, which will see the team retain Brad Touma and add Tony Resch. “The front office has spent…

Alright, so some conferences have already started their conference schedule. But this weekend, nearly every team that’s playing will have a conference game, including the CAA, which opens up conference play on Saturday. For some teams, it’s a chance to get that top seed in their respective conference tournaments en route to a possible automatic bid. For other teams, the road to the postseason begins now. One loss might be the…

It’s time for some teams to prove one of two things. Either they’re contenders when May comes around, or they still need some work to do. It’s been about a month since the season got underway, and we’ve seen Towson, Hofstra, and even Rutgers rise into the Top 20, while Duke, Virginia, and Georgetown have been disappointments thus far. But is this the biggest weekend of the season? Sure there’s been…

This college lacrosse season has been one of upsets. Loyola and High Point defeated Virginia, then Towson beat Loyola. Boston University topped Navy, Hofstra defeated North Carolina, and then Georgetown defeated Hofstra. Duke had been immune thus far, until the Blue Devils faced the 12th ranked Harvard Crimson on Long Island. Ranked fourth in the nation, Duke is led by incredible talent, and though the Crimson have been a strong…


Carolina Rebounds With Win Against Hopkins, 15-11

February 28, 2016

Baltimore, Maryland – On a beautiful day in Baltimore the Johns Hopkins Blue Jays opened their home slate against the North Carolina Tar Heels.  Both teams came off tough losses in their prior games and only one would leave avoiding a two-game losing streak early in the season. Carolina scored immediately off the opening face-off victory and Tar Heels would score the next three to take a commanding 4-0 lead…
