This Tuesday isn't quite as busy as the last few, but there are still six games on the schedule. Outside of an East-West rap war between Denver and Cornell (yeah, boy!) and an Island-Not Island "Our schools start with 'S'" war between Stony Brook and Siena, there is a lot of regional rivalries shaking out this afternoon and evening.
Up in Buffalo, Hobart heads west on the New York State Thruway looking for its second win of the season against similarly situated one-win Canisius. Sure, the game won't be all that hot, but everyone in the stands can talk about how nice it is to not be from Rochester.
St. John's scoots up the clogged arteries of western Long Island to take on Hofstra at Shuart Stadium. The Pride are only at .500 this season, but are playing much better than their record shows. With Jeff Lowman between the pipes for the Johnnies, St. John's has a chance to pull the upset despite the horses that Hofstra will put out on the track.
Lehigh, the darlings of college lacrosse in 2012 minus the adorable bonnet, heads west to State College to take on the Nittany Lions in their brand spanking new lacrosse facility. The Mountain Hawks are coming off a 7-6 squeaker against Army while Penn State is still smarting from an overtime loss to Massachusetts on Saturday. Kevin Cassese has done yeoman's work this season with Lehigh and he'll be put to the test against Jeff Tambroni and his sharply worn baseball cap.
Finally, Robert Morris flees Moon Township for a date against Bucknell in Lewisburg, Pennsylvania. Lewisburg is home to a federal penitentiary, but I'm told that they won't play the lacrosse game there. It has something to do with violent prisoners preferring their entertainment to be getting into fights and calling each other nasty names rather than America's first game. Whatever.
Here's the rundown for today:
