America East: Vermont 10, #15 Stony Brook 9; Hartford 11, #4 Albany 10 (OT) You read those scores right. Vermont…


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…

College Lacrosse Weekend Preview: Show Me What You Got

March 11, 2016

It’s time for some teams to prove one of two things. Either they’re contenders when May comes around, or they still need some work to do. It’s been about a month since the season got underway, and we’ve seen Towson, Hofstra, and even Rutgers rise into the Top 20, while Duke, Virginia, and Georgetown have been disappointments thus far. But is this the biggest weekend of the season? Sure there’s been…
