Lacrosse March Madness is Upon Us

March Madness is one of the most exciting times of the year to be a sports fan. There is something special about highly touted competition coming together in games where everything is on the line. In the college lacrosse world, there’s no time to mess around in March, and this week as we have several ranked opponents facing off on Saturday. To take a page from basketball, lacrosse’s March Madness begins now.

Saturday Ranked Matchups

#4 Cornell vs #11 Yale

Game Time: 12:00pm

The lone unbeaten team in the Ivy League, Cornell looks to propel itself further into the Memorial Day Weekend conversation by beating the bulldogs. Look for CJ Kirst and John Piatelli to lead the offense, while Chayse Ierlan backstops the defense.

#16 Notre Dame vs #19 Michigan

Game Time: 12:00pm

Michigan suffered its first loss to a talented and gritty Harvard team, while Notre Dame lost its third straight and fell to 1-3. While the records look lopsided, keep in mind that Notre Dame has lost to Georgetown, Maryland, and Ohio State, all by 5 or less. The Irish have the talent to compete with everyone, but it appears the pieces haven’t fit together yet to finish games against the Top 10.

#17 Harvard vs #15 Brown

Game Time: 1:00pm

The so called “middle” of the Ivy League is a difficult place to be as both teams have played competitive lacrosse against Top 10 teams but lack the signature wins to bolster their resumes. Complete coin flip.

#3 Princeton vs #6 Penn

Game Time: 1:00pm

No one knew exactly how good the Ivy League would be preseason, but here we are with six ranked teams, including three in the top six. Princeton has looked more impressive against tougher competition, slight edge to the Tigers.

#1 Maryland vs #2 Virginia

Game Time: 3:00pm

All eyes will be on College Park as the Cavaliers visit the Terps on Saturday at 3. Hammer the over in this one as both teams are built to score in bunches. Shellenberger and Cormier have 64 points while Wisnauskas and Donville have 55… Its a bad day to be a goalie.
