Princeton readies for the season and more.

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

A Full Pint

Deep roster hopes to bring men's lacrosse back to the top of the Ivy League
Princeton isn't a concrete top-five team at this point in the season. The Tigers have question marks -- what's the goalkeeping situation? how will a new coaching staff gel around Chris Bates? will a year of experience platform the team's field defense in a stronger position compared to 2013? -- but Princeton has a lot of valuable assets that have both proved their potential for generating returns and for appreciating in growth. The Tigers weren't as bad as many people thought last season, and Princeton is poised to do some special things in 2014:

For Schreiber, whose three consecutive first-team All-Ivy honors have yet to culminate in a league title, the most important facet of this season will be ensuring his team’s level of play remains consistent throughout the course of its 13-plus game schedule. Schreiber pointed out that in both the Ivy League and NCAA tournament, the semifinal and final games call for two contests in just three days. He feels that more than any one tangible facet of his talented roster’s execution, staying focused and avoiding burnout will prove to be the most crucial factor in pushing his team from a second-place finish to a first-place one.

“We’re trying to peak at the right time and not really peak early in the season like the last couple years,” he said. “We’re really trying to take it one week at a time and not get too high or not get too low after a win or a loss.”
