Denver Trying to Pioneer Lacrosse History Past Maryland

May 25, 2015

Two very different teams and back stories are the Big Show in this year’s NCAA D-I Lacrosse Championship. Both semifinals were the tightest games of the postseason, each game a one-point decider and one game a repeat OT thriller. Some argue it’s another east versus west game. I argue it’s an old school versus new school game. Both teams are surprisingly similar despite different approaches and playing styles. Both have…


NCAA Final Four: Denver vs Notre Dame

Denver Advances Past Ohio State to Final Four

May 18, 2015

Denver held on to beat Ohio State 15-13 after Ohio initially pulled ahead 7-1 in Saturday’s matchup. It seems despite a loss for the Buckeyes, they are indeed for real and have the necessities to go all the way in the near future. Despite a win for DU, they played one of their more sloppy games this past weekend and will most assuredly need to regroup before this upcoming Championship…

Quick Reaction: Notre Dame 14 Albany 10

May 16, 2015

Albany came into the second half after rain delay trailing and needed a momentum shifter. Lyle Thompson took the reigns and played through triples and quadruples of defenders coming at him. A few times, he lost the ball. In the end, Notre Dame stepped up on defense and made fast close range shots goals. They stole the momentum shift away from Albany. The Fighting Irish go on to Philadelphia after…


All Eyes on Denver in Quarter Finals

May 16, 2015

BUILD UP Denver, the Lacrosse Capital of the West, is going nuts this week. As are we media personnel due to the movement in the last week. As Bill Tierney once told me in an interview, “The entire west region kind of looks to DU as their ‘home’ team.” Families are taking off weekend work, players asking for early birthday presents as tickets, and coaches preaching for their teams to…


Pioneers Advance Past Brown, Get Homefield Opportunity

May 12, 2015

In a game between two of the most offensively productive teams in the NCAA, Brown flew out to Denver to be tested by the Pioneers. While the Pio’s punched their ticket to the NCAA Elite Eight, Brown was another victim of Denver’s prominence falling 15-9. Despite a six point goal differential, the game was very close statistically. Denver’s Trevor Baptiste won more face offs, but not by as many as…

As all DU games seem to go this season, the game yesterday against Villanova started out rocky until the Pioneers pulled together another phenomenal mid-game offensive run to beat the Wildcats 16-9. Villanova was able to outscore Denver 5-3 in the first quarter. Jack Curran started the scoring on the day in less than four and a half minutes unassisted to take ‘Nova 1-0 over DU. Wes Berg answered back…

After last week’s games wrapped up, the BIG East Tournament Championship is now seeded. Denver comes in at No. 1, Georgetown No. 2 (win over St. John’s), Marquette No. 3 (loss to DU) and Villanova at No. 4. The real matchup to watch is Marquette against Georgetown. Both teams are similar in caliber and playing style. Marquette was on track to be a second-half cinderella team by out-shooting and out-scoring…
