NCAA Games to Watch: March 21

March 21, 2015

Siena at Monmouth, 1 pm, ESPN3 The Saints have won four of their last five after starting the season with back-to-back losses. While Monmouth is 3-3, the Hawks average just five goals a game—fourth-worst in Division I. Siena, on the other hand, averages 10 per game. Last year when these teams played, Siena won 8-3. The Saints will likely count on senior and leading point scorer Richie Hurley on Saturday….

Chamberlain: Championship Lacrosse Will Be Best Lacrosse

Chamberlain Championship Weekend Edition NCAA DIVISION 1 SEMIFINALS Maryland vs. Notre Dame This game will be the third meeting between these ACC rivals. Maryland has been very strong on offense, especially their production out of their midfield. For Maryland to win this game, they have to be flawless in the clearing game and need a huge game from Niko Amato in the goal. For the Irish, their points off of…

Chamberlain: Conference Championship Look In

Conference Championship time is upon us and Loyola (Patriot) and Notre Dame (ACC) are in the NCAA tournament after their victories this past weekend. Semi Final action will be in full effect on Thursday with: CAA Towson vs. Drexel—this winner plays Hofstra who won 8-6 on Wednesday over Delaware.

Chamberlain: Conference Playoffs Begin

April 24, 2014

Friday Night Lights Kicks off an action packed Weekend of College and Pro Action Patriot League Playoffs Army vs. Lehigh I like Lehigh in this matchup between two very well coached teams. Lehigh is balanced on offense and has strong goaltending with junior Matt Poillion. My prediction is Lehigh by three. Loyola vs. Colgate I made the mistake of not picking Loyola in the regular season matchup. I’m not going…

Chamberlain: Beware of the Ides of March

March 13, 2014

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ides_of_March   #3 Johns Hopkins vs #10 Syracuse I like ‘Cuse to defeat Johns Hopkins in this contest. While the Orange has struggled on faceoffs, they are still an elite program that is still working out its lineup. Each week this team continue to improve and on Saturday, Randy Staats, Dylan Donohue and Kevin Rice will give the Hopkins defense fits. I’m calling for a big day for the Orange vs….

March 6, 2014

With five games inside the top 20, I’m in a NY State of mind for this week’s preview. #1 Maryland @ Stony Brook—Interesting matchup as Maryland travels to Stony Brook’s LaValle stadium. The Seawolves are coming off an inspiring 12-9 win over Rutgers, while the Terps defeated Duke 10-6 at Byrd Stadium last week. Look for this game to be settled at the faceoff with Charlie Raffa having the edge…

Behind Chris Hughes four goals and Kyle Rowe’s 16 for 24 faceoff performance, the Stony Brook Seawolves defeated Rutgers 12-9 at a cold LaValle Stadium on Saturday Night.
