NCAA March Madness As Lacrosse: Part Two

March 16, 2016

Last year around this time, I took the schools who made the NCAA basketball tournament and decided to look at it from a lacrosse perspective. Several websites and sports blogs will do this for football or other sports, because most of those schools have division one or at least varsity programs. Lacrosse is different, and most of these will be club teams, which certainly makes this an interesting exercise. This…

Simmons Column: No Benefits to Snow-Crosse

February 23, 2015

Photo Credit: Ian Neadle Playing lacrosse in the snow is not easy. It is harder to pass, clear, collect ground balls and see the ball as a goalie. Snow leads to a sloppy game and creates parody between unequal teams; that is what we saw in the Loyola-Holy Cross game. Three games had game times changed or were postponed on Saturday: UMBC-Monmouth, Penn State-Villanova, and Georgetown-Towson. I can’t tell you…
