Read: Lacrosse All Stars

The bottom line: Our friends at Cascade Lacrosse recently outfitted the Manhasset Men’s Lacrosse team with some orange chrome lids, much like the ones people would associate with Syracuse. These lids are filthy.

The details: The Athletic released an story today on Mindy and Paul McCord, who coach for the Jacksonville University Women’s Lacrosse team. The article profiles how the McCords drew inspiration for their style of lacrosse that has launched Jacksonville into the national prominence from a basketball brand of play simply known as “The System”. Basketball coach Paul Westhead implemented this style of play at Loyola Marymount University decades ago.

The bottom line: This is another example of how important it is to learn from other sports, and is a great feature on Jacksonville program.
