Seven Stories and One Set of Beats: April 17, 2012

This is obviously your favorite site, but other people actually write important stuff sometimes. Now is that sometimes.

Lehigh's Cameron and Roman Lao-Gosney: In It Together
Cameron and Roman Lao-Gosney are not typical teammates. The Lehigh co-captains are fraternal twins who started playing lacrosse in high school at Hebron Academy in Maine.

Will Lacrosse Ever Go Mainstream?
A look at what it takes for a sport to break through.

Lacrosse power rankings: April 16-22
Losses for Virginia and Johns Hopkins shake up the polls in a big way and seem to really open things up for potential team to make a run to Foxboro. We are putting Loyola at 1 over UMASS because the Greyhounds have 3 wins over teams currently in the top 20 (Duke, Denver, Fairfield) while the Minutemen have 2 (Penn State and Bucknell).

Quint Kessenich's Top 20 and Analysis, April 16
The weekend provided tremendous clarity toward the NCAA Tournament field. Of the nine at-large spots available, it's safe to say that all four ACC teams and Hopkins have resumes sufficient for selection. That leaves four at-large spots.

With only three weeks left of classes, the end our regular season is quickly approaching. At this point in the season, we are 9-1 and have two games left on our regular season schedule: Brown and Princeton. Our last home game is this Saturday, which will also be Senior Day.

Two of the best rivalries in the sport were played on Saturday. They finished with identical 9-6 scores and were a lot of fun to watch. An abbreviated ILSF comes from the pregame of Notre Dame-Georgetown.

Cornell lacrosse team has the look of a title contender even with its star on the sideline
The question is asked by nearly everyone who watches the Cornell men’s lacrosse team. How good would the Big Red be this season with Rob Pannell in the lineup?

Today's beats: Charles Mingus was awesome. "Haitian Fight Song" remains one of his greatest contributions to modern American jazz. The problem with that chart, though, is it's like four-and-a-half weeks long, which makes uploading it to YouTube fairly difficult. So, we're stuck with the New York Ska-Jazz Ensemble ripping the chart to pieces:
