Surprises and Snubs: 2013 Men's DI Bracket
The Bison were the last team out of IL's last bracket projection, and as that prediction was 16-16 in the Tournament field, it stands to reason that the most deserving team left out was the 17th team in our projection.

MD1 Bracket an Affirmation of Lacrosse's New Era
Consider Sunday's NCAA tournament bracket unveiling the latest affirmation of lacrosse's changes.

Is This D1 Lacrosse Tournament Field Serious?
Well, we’ve reached that point in the season, and the NCAA D1 Lacrosse Tournament Field has been set. Let’s see if the 2013 NCAA D1 Lacrosse Tournament Field is serious, shall we?

Q&A with NCAA selection committee chair Jim Siedliski
Siedliski addressed the rationale behind awarding the top seed to Syracuse, the deliberations over inviting Duke, Penn State and Loyola instead of Bucknell, Penn and Princeton, and the reasoning involved in leaving Johns Hopkins out of the field for the first time since 1971.

Maryland lacrosse enters NCAA tournament following 18-6 win over Colgate
Following an 18-6 victory over Colgate in the Maryland men’s lacrosse team’s regular season finale on Saturday, senior Jesse Bernhardt, a starting longstick midfielder, walked off the Byrd Stadium field wearing the construction hard hat that symbolizes the player in the Terrapins’ program who has the most energy and works the hardest.

Highs and Lows: The 2013 Virginia Lacrosse Season
A sub-.500 record and no UVa lacrosse to watch in the month of May is unfamiliar territory for Hoos fans. Virginia has made 34 of the 41 NCAA Tournaments; under Dom Starsia, we've had more seasons end with national titles than tournament misses.

Sophomore midfielder Turner Evans scored with 24 seconds remaining and the No. 10 Ohio State men’s lacrosse team pulled out a dramatic, 11-10 victory against Denver in Sunday's Eastern Collegiate Athletic Conference Championship Game in Geneva, N.Y.

UAlbany lacrosse to meet Denver
If the University at Albany men’s lacrosse team – and perhaps the America East conference – were dealt a slight on Sunday when the Great Danes received no better than the No. 13 seed for the NCAA Tournament, which begins next weekend, the UAlbany players didn’t express feeling underrated.

Today's beats: It was a long weekend. Here's so Death Cab.
