ESPNU Lacrosse Fan Fest Coming To Warrior Classic

ESPNU is the home of collegiate lacrosse. In 2012, the 24-hour college sports network will feature 40 regular-season matchups, 37 men’s and three women’s games – including the crowning of six conference champions on ESPNU and ESPN3.

The 2012 ESPNU Lacrosse Fan Fest features a competition to determine the best lacrosse “trickster” in Charlotte. The winner of the challenge receives a lacrosse equipment upgrade courtesy of Warrior, ESPNU prizes and a sideline pass for the North Carolina vs. Hofstra game (1:30 p.m. ET). Competitors will perform in front of a live audience inside the ESPNU L-A-X cage (photo reference). Meanwhile, the ESPNU Mini Bus will be onsite with a live DJ performance and ESPNU prizes for spectators.
