2012 NCAA Lacrosse Tournament Open Thread: Stony Brook at (2) Johns Hopkins

Presswire

If Johns Hopkins is finally going to get its hands on that coveted double-digit NCAA title that it so desperately wants, it's going to have to dispatch a scrappy Stony Brook team that will either give the Jays a hard time or crumble like a delicious dessert.

(Be right back. Going to eat some dessert.)

Johns Hopkins has the look of a strong competitor for Memorial Monday, assuming that it can avoid some of the offensive blind spots that it has experienced throughout the year. With Chris Boland back in the lineup and no indications that he won't be able to contribute, the Jays' attack unit is as dangerous as any in the country. With additional contributions from its midfield, this could be the happiest lacrosse team dancing under a rainbow of victory in a few weeks. (Purple prose-y enough for you? Terrific.)

Stony Brook, contrastingly, is just looking to try and get a deathblow in before they exit stage death. ESPNU and ESPN3 will show you all the gory details.

Here's how the game shakes out on the Fun Factor scale:

This is your open thread for the game. You look pretty sharp in your pajamas and unwashed hair. Don't let society tell you any different.
