“Five and one versus Marquette, in a huge league win. Including the game winner, in O-T. What a game by the Villanova guy… In a league that, I mean, right now, with Denver not playing at it’s finest, the Big East is still up for grabs. Villanova, is one of the hottest teams right now, in NCAA, Division I Men’s Lacrosse. So, Christian Cuccinello, five in one versus Marquette.” – Ryan Danehy
