Saturday’s games at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium in Annapolis, Md., will be televised on ESPN2 and ESPN3: No. 2 Johns Hopkins vs. Maryland – coming off an upset victory over No. 7 Lehigh — at noon and No. 1 Loyola against Denver, which upset No. 8 UNC, at 2:30 p.m. Sunday’s action from PPL Park in Chester, Pa., will be available on ESPNU and ESPN3, beginning at noon with the weekend’s top matchup: No. 4 Notre Dame against defending national champion and No. 5 seed Virginia. No. 3 Duke vs. Colgate, which upset No. 6 UMass in a first-round game, follows at 2:30 p.m.

Veteran play-by-play voice Eamon McAnaney, along with analyst Quint Kessenich and sideline analyst Paul Carcaterra, will team up to call the remaining seven games of the Championship, including the semifinals Saturday, May 26 (2:30 p.m. & 5 p.m./ESPN2 & ESPN3) and the National Championship Sunday, May 28 (1 p.m./ESPN & ESPN3). This will be McAnaney’s first time calling Championship weekend and Carcaterra is a newcomer to the sidelines.

Host Anish Shroff, along with analyst Mark Dixon, will handle the studio coverage from ESPNU’s Charlotte, N.C. studio. In addition, the duo will be on site in Foxborough for pregame and halftime coverage, in addition to the NCAA Lacrosse Championship Post Game Show, immediately following the title game on Memorial Day, on ESPNU and ESPN3.

In 2012 the ESPN networks will air over 400 hours of NCAA Spring Championships coverage, increasing more than 30 hours from 2011. As part of ESPN’s extended rights agreement with the NCAA, spring championship programming highlights seven sports over eight weeks: Men’s Lacrosse, Men’s Volleyball, Baseball and Softball. For the first time, ESPN networks will also air the Men’s and Women’s Outdoor Track & Field and Women’s Lacrosse Championships.

For years Lacrosse Playground provided lacrosse fans with tutorials and tips on how to string a lacrosse head, up-close looks at the gear the top players used and sneak peeks at equipment and uniforms before they were released. More than 10 years and millions of visits later, Lacrosse Playground has relaunched with a focus on storytelling. Our mission is to provide comprehensive coverage of the latest lacrosse news, share insights into the sports betting and fantasy lacrosse world and showcase the lifestyles and personalities of the sport of lacrosse through articles, videos and podcasts.
