What’s on the Tube?
Join Mitch Belisle and Ryan Boyle as they dive through Boyle’s 2004 NCAA Quarterfinals highlight tape, recently added by @LacrosseFilmStudy. Boyle and the No. 6 seed Princeton Tigers were facing off with the No. 3 seed Maryland Terrapins after rolling Rutgers in the first round 12-4. Finishing the 2004 regular season at 9-3, the season marked the 14th-straight Ivy League title for Bill Tierney and the Tigers.
