“I was fortunate to have played in three national championship games while I was at Johns Hopkins and the excitement my teammates and I felt being a part of that event was incredible,” said Rabil.  “I’m looking forward to being back in my home state of Maryland to cover the competition for SiriusXM and bring our listeners closer to the games.  All four semifinalists are experienced “Final Four” teams and are playing at the top of their game, and it will be a lot of fun to see how these matchups unfold.”

“As we approach the finale of another great college lacrosse season we’re pleased to give our subscribers live access to the semifinals and national championship game, as well as analysis from a team of experts who know the game as well as or better than anyone,” said Scott Greenstein, SiriusXM’s President and Chief Content Officer.  “Paul Rabil and Paul Carcaterra, both national championship winners themselves, are able to deliver the kind of insight into this event that few others can.”
