Lacrosse the Internet: February 26, 2014

Maryland has balance, a beautiful feature on Nicky Galasso, and more.

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

A Full Pint

Maryland Seniors, Freshmen Blending Well
So far, so good:

Now come the teaching moments involving one of the game's more exciting, youthful teams. Twenty-seven members on Maryland's 49-man roster are either first- or second-year players, bolstered by one of the more hyped freshmen classes in Division I. Already, attackmen Matt Rambo (team-high nine goals and 12 points) and Connor Cannizzaro (6, 3) are delivering, while the injured Tim Rotanz aims to join them soon.

Maryland featured nine different point-generators against Syracuse with Matt Rambo and Mike Chanenchuk -- the team's primary offensive cogs entering their date against the Orange -- registering five of the team's 22 points. This is the balance that the Terps hoped for in 2014, and it could drive Maryland to notable heights this season.

His Return
I've always been supportive of student newspapers. These are valuable opportunities for young writers, and more often than not, student newspapers provide better coverage of college lacrosse than professional concerns. The Daily Orange has been one of the nation's best student publications since forever, and after the paper's website underwent a massive design overhaul this spring, The Daily Orange has adopted a beautiful features design that approaches the stunning work done at SBNation.com.

I guess what I'm trying to get at is this: Good job, kiddos.
