I really need to figure out what a “speed dodge” actually is. It can’t be as simple as just running by someone, can it?
Since I have not made any clear decisions on what the grand enigma of playoff success must be, I will defer to people with much more experience and success in this matter. It’s good to have friends who are smarter than you! Let’s take a small sampling of what it means to make a successful playoff push, from some of the best minds in the game.
In the end, I can still understand rewarding the “good” teams with more All-Americans. But here is the thrust of my thought process right now: I simply don’t believe that any one team in the Top 20 of D3 is really 11 or 12 All Americans better than someone only a handful of spots behind them.
Reliving the Notre Dame Albany NCAA D1 lacrosse quarterfinal game is going to be a Summer past time for many people, and this is how they can do it. Simply amazing.
This past Sunday the Denver University Pioneers blew the doors of the Drexel Dragons, 15-6 in Delaware Stadium, Newark, DE.
This past Sunday the Duke University Blue Devils overpowered the Johns Hopkins Blue Jays, 19-11 in Delaware Stadium, Newark, DE. Duke led the game in shots 44 to 35. Although Hopkins led in the saves column, 10 to 4, goaltender Eric Schnieder could only do so much for the Blue Jays as he was faced with a flurry of attempts by the Duke offense.
We get a lot of good photos from our photographer crew, but our Director of Photography, Tommy Gilligan, really pulled out all the stops this weekend with this shot!
If you didn’t catch Notre Dame’s insane comeback on Saturday to defeat Albany in OT, you need to drop everything, go to ESPN3 right now, and spend two and a half hours watching one of the best NCAA D1 tournament games of all-time. Do you think I’m crazy for saying that? Watch the game, then […]
A late run by No. 1 Arizona State was not enough to defeat No. 2 Colorado in the 2014 MCLA Division I national championship game, as the Buffs captured their first title in a 13-12 win over the previously undefeated Sun Devils. Led by tournament MVP Riley Seidel’s six points, Colorado broke open a 5-5 halftime tie to lead 13-8 early in the fourth before ASU’s comeback attempt.
In a back-and-forth game on a beautiful day in Orange County, Calif., the No. 1 Grand Valley State Lakers captured their first MCLA Division II national championship with a 12-11 win over No. 2 St. John’s. The Lakers and Johnnies both had appeared in but never won a championship game before today, with GVSU falling in the 2012 and 2008 finals and St. John’s dropping the 2007 final.
Orange County has played host to many players returning home for the 2014 MCLA National Championships, but none have had bigger games than Colorado’s Jack Cranston. Cranston, from nearby Santa Margarita, Calif., led his No. 2 Buffs team to a 12-10 victory over No. 6 UC Santa Barbara in the semifinals to earn a shot at the MCLA Division I championship on Saturday.
Finally, the MCLA National Championship games are nigh. Tomorrow, May 17th, four universities will play in two games to decide the National Champions of the MCLA Division I and II. The Division II game starts at noon and the Division I game will begin immediately after at 3.
Before an 11 game win streak that took Grand Valley State into the MCLA national tournament as the top seed, the Lakers started the 2014 season with two losses – first to St. John’s and then against St. Thomas. Yesterday GVSU avenged the St. Thomas loss with a 10-5 semifinal win, and Saturday they will have a chance to gain another rematch victory in the championship game against No. 2 St. John’s.
