For the past two years, and the last three of four, Philadelphia has hosted the Men’s and Women’s National Championship games (except Women’s Division II). It’s seemed that it’s been a staple for many locals, as well as many lacrosse fans, for Memorial Day Weekend. This year’s version had increases in attendance for all three days, and it shines a light on the topic about attendance and future venues for…

One word to summarize what happened Thursday: wow. All of the conferences except the ACC and Patriot League (who already finished their tournaments last week) and the Ivy League (who play Friday and Sunday) had their semifinals yesterday, and it brought some big results that will affect plenty of bubble teams. America East: Vermont 10, #15 Stony Brook 9; Hartford 11, #4 Albany 10 (OT) You read those scores right. Vermont…

Ah, the Patriot League. Welcome back into the College Lacrosse Weekend Preview Foray my friend. It’s been just under two months since we last talked about you as our main subject. And now, it’s your time to shine again. Usually, there would be a big weekend preview out today, but since I got caught up in binge listening to Prince’s music (RIP), we’re doing something different. Today will be part one…

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…
