Lacrosse the Internet: February 13, 2013

Another dispatch from West Point, recruiting news, and a notebook item from Lax Mag.

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

NCAA Preview 2013: Maryland
The Terrapins have reached the past two NCAA Tournament title games. However, what third-year coach John Tillman sees as much as the postseason success are two consecutive regular seasons that have not gone as planned — Maryland entered the postseason 9-5 last year and 10-4 in 2011.

Recruiting: 2015s to Michigan, Bryant, Providence, Furman; 2014s to Syracuse, UMass, Fairfield, 2013s, More
A huge recruiting announcement today with players spread across the 2015, 2014 and 2013 classes. This is a fascinating group of national players, hailing from Georgia, South Carolina, Tennessee, Kentucky and more, as well as from the hotbeds.

Winners & Losers: New Rules, Blizzards and Southern Lacrosse

NCAA Preview 2013: Loyola
Loyola’s goal on offense is to reach 40 shots, coach Charley Toomey says. There’s good reason: According to research of season statistics dating from 1989, Loyola has not missed the NCAA Tournament in a year in which it averaged 40 or more shots.

Monday Midfielder: First Big Shot Clock Play of Year

College Lacrosse Pace of Scoring in Week 1
Analyst Mark Dixon said something in the Baltimore Sun today that we felt warranted a bit more scrutiny. He said, “I think pace of play was really, really good. If you look at the scoring, you had Denver-Duke which was 14-12, and the Bryant-Colgate game was 14-13. So I think the intention of the new rules to increase pace of play has had its desired effect.”
