Loyola was the heavy favorite heading in, but that mattered little as Albany started out hot, played composed lacrosse for 60 minutes, and got a superb effort from their defense and goalie, Blaze Riorden. The Danes beat the Hounds 13-6 on the road, and move on to the next round of the NCAA tourney, looking like the hottest team in the country.

For the Richmond Spiders, all expectations were exceeded. It was fitting for the Spiders, as a new program, to join the Atlantic Sun Conference. The A-Sun is new to lacrosse this year, and the winner receives an automatic qualifying bid to the NCAA Tournament.
The first thing you notice about the young men known as the “Thompson Trio” is their superior skills on the lacrosse field. Brothers Lyle and Miles Thompson and their cousin Ty are all starters at the University of Albany.
But that’s not what makes them most proud.
Yesterday, the NCAA tournament kicked off with play-in games for the D1 bracket, and first round action going down in men’s D3 lacrosse. We’ll run down the results, provide video where we can, and talk about the big match ups in the next round.
Five different Spiders scored goals as the inaugural men’s lacrosse season came to an end in the NCAA Tournament with a 13-5 loss at Air Force Wednesday night.

The United States Coast Guard Academy, located in New London, CT, will be transitioning from MCLA D2 to NCAA D3 in 2015.

The lacrosse gods sure were messing with the Dukes early on this past Saturday afternoon in the first of the pair of games they would play that day. The first game was against the home team and host of NCLL Championship weekend; the Scarlet Knights of Rutgers University.
Everybody loves Selection Sunday, so I call this MCLA Monday.
This past weekend wrapped up the conference tourneys and the field of 16 has been decided.
In the spirit of “Is this D1 lacrosse poll serious?”, I’ll be taking a look at the NCAA D1 Lacrosse Tournament teams and asking whether or not they were ranked correctly. Was Duke really deserving of the #1 seed? Should a non-AQ Ivy team really have made it in to the tourney over Hofstra? Let’s take a look and see if this selection group is serious!
