May Madness: Conference Semifinals Create Chaos

May 6, 2016

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…

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…


NCAA Bracketology V2: You Should Probably Win As Much As Possible

April 19, 2016

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…


NCAA Bracketology V1: There’s Still Time

April 12, 2016

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…


#4 Syracuse Tops #12 Albany 16-7 In Early Season Meeting

February 22, 2016

Syracuse stormed out of the gate early in the first quarter en route to a 16-7 victory over in-state rival Albany Sunday afternoon in the Carrier Dome. The Orange came into Sunday’s game without graduate transfer attackman Nick Piroli, who head coach John Desko said would be week-to-week with a lower-body injury. Senior Tim Barber took his place, as he spent some time at attack last season when Randy Staats was injured. Barber…

February 20, 2016

Madness? THIS. IS. FEBRUARY LACROSSE! If you don’t know what movie that sort of is from, it’s from 300 (and you should probably watch at least that scene right now).

Many of these games are on Saturday, so set aside your Saturday. SATURDAY #1…

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…
