Programming Note: Watch the 7OT UVA – Maryland Instant Classic on ESPNU @ 8:30 EST Tuesday night


(AP photo)In case you missed it, the “instant classic” between Virginia and Maryland is replaying on Tuesday night (3/31) for those of us who missed it. (ME included!)

It should NOT be this difficult to know when games are on TV… I just happened to see this come across Google Reader randomly in the Home feed, which I never look at. In an ideal world, we would have gotten an e-mail update on this. Another example of how hard it is to be a fan.

Here is a game re-cap  from The New York Times:

The longest game in college lacrosse history ended in the seventh overtime when Virginia Coach Dom Starsia ran out of things to say. The No. 1 Cavs outlasted No. 9 Maryland on a goal by Brian Carroll in the first minute of the seventh overtime to give them a 10-9 victory. Starsia said that it was the first time in the overtimes that a coach had not called a timeout after taking the ball in their offensive end. Starsia told the offensive coordinator Marc Van Arsdale not to bother calling a timeout right before the goal.

“Let them play,” Starsia said. “There’s nothing more we can say to these guys.” Moments later, Carroll ended the game with a transition goal.“It was pretty exhausting,” Starsia said in a telephone interview Saturday night.
