Tomorrow’s LXM PRO Los Angeles event marks the final game of the season for the LXM PRO. In Connor’s preview of the game, he takes a look at who the league scoring champ might be when all is said and done.

Tweet of the Week: John Tavares, Ageless Wonder

0 - Published January 16, 2014 by in Box, National Lacrosse League

In my opinion, there are two indisputable legends of the indoor game currently playing in the NLL. The first is John Grant Jr. The second scored an OT winner for the Buffalo Bandits last weekend while playing against the Philadelphia Wings. His name is John Tavares.

Is There Such Thing As A “Perfect Pocket?”

0 - Published January 10, 2014 by in Stringing

Is there such thing as a “perfect pocket?” That’s the question that has arisen in this week’s Forum Friday. The poster really wants to know what the characteristics of a perfect pocket are, so we would have to assume that they think there is such thing as a perfect pocket. However, instead of a pocket that is perfect in terms of working for everyone, I think the question may be looking for more general qualities.

LXM PRO 858 in San Diego was a thriller last weekend, with Team STX edging out a 16-15 win over Maverik United on a Max Ritz goal with two seconds left. Earlier in the game, Sam Bradman put Team STX on his back with four first half goals, including what was just about the most beautiful low release shot I have ever seen. It was an on the run riser, and Kyle Harrison definitely appreciated the shot as much as I did.

By now you probably know that Devon Wills has become the first female player on a Major League Lacrosse roster. While she wasn’t picked up in the Supplemental Draft as some may have hoped, the NY Lizards claimed the two-time FIL Women’s World Cup gold medalist out of the Player Pool. While she still has to prove herself to make it from the training camp roster to the game roster, she has the support of many in the lacrosse community, including Connor Martin.
