Final Four Guide and Scavenger Hunt Presented by True Temper Lacrosse

For the first time since 1975, Virginia, Syracuse, or Johns Hopkins won’t be headed to the NCAA DI Final Four. The 2012 Final Four is not all new faces, however, as Maryland was in the Championship game last year and both Notre Dame and Duke have routinely made it to the last weekend in May over the last few years. Loyola rounds out the D1 side of the Final Four as possibly the most quiet top-seeded team in the history of the tournament. Read More…

Colgate Men’s Lacrosse 2012 Player Blog: Go to the Final Four

Now standing in our way is a very strong Duke team. They are solid in every facet of the game, but so are we. The trust and belief in one another on this team rivals any, and we plan to work as hard as ever for this game. It will not be easy, but we understand that. So following the graduation of our senior class in our hotel Saturday night (yes, we’re doing that), the opening face-off will be sometime around 2:30 on Sunday at PPL Park. It will come down to the team that takes care of the little things best, and the team that executes at the highest level. We aim to be that team and are working to make Sunday the best day ever.

Lehigh Men’s Lacrosse 2012 Player Blog: ‘Bring on the Terps’

The privilege of playing lacrosse together still at this point in May is also special in its own right, but again by no means any source of complacency. A new opponent, a new opportunity, and a plethora of new naysayers are on the horizon. As has been the case since the days of my recruitment to Lehigh, though, the more that people predict us to lose, the more motivated (and more likely) we are to win. Bring on the Terps, bring on the NCAA Tournament, bring on the doubt…bring on whatever and I’m confident that it will only make this Lehigh lacrosse family stronger in the end. Read More…

Colgate Men’s Lacrosse 2012 Player Blog: The Terps Are Coming

The Terps are coming to town on Saturday. It’s our senior day, the school’s springcoming, and the weather is supposed to cooperate. What better way could we as seniors ask to end our home careers other than beating Maryland at home and setting ourselves up for an at-large bid in the NCAA tournament. Of course we know it’s going to be a tough game coming at the end of the last week of classes, but who cares? Come Saturday the only thing that will matter is that all 47 guys on the roster go out to Andy Kerr and leave it all on the field. I can think of no better way to end my career here at Colgate than with this group of guys going up against an ACC powerhouse. Read More…

Many are confused as to why the Virginia Cavaliers, while able to win national championships and stomp out seemingly anyone in their path, are unable to win against Duke. How does a team that loses 12 of 13 matchups to an ACC rival manage to win 2 national championships during that time, while the other only wins one? Read More…
