Tough road ahead for lacrosse

NCAA Preview 2013: Brown
The Brown Bears endured a tumultuous season in 2012, going 7-8 overall and 3-4 in the Ivy league. A big win against Cornell was the highlight of the season, but overtime losses to Harvard and Yale painted the opposite end of the emotional spectrum for the Bears. The 2013 schedule gets no easier for the Providence natives, as Brown will travel to play both UMass (ranked No. 12 in the Face-off yearbook) and North Carolina (No. 5) this spring. However, coach Lars Tiffany is excited for the new season: “We have to play unselfish lacrosse, and if we can do that our goals will increase. We didn’t do well putting points on the board in 2012, but we will try to play even faster in 2013.”
