Men's Lacrosse: Big Green upsets Tigers in Hanover
It was a 29-second defensive lapse that the Tigers wish they could have back: Dartmouth senior midfielder Nikki Dysenchuck and freshman midfielder Cam Lee scored back-to-back goals just seconds apart, turning Princeton’s 9-8 lead to a 10-9 score in favor of the Big Green with only 4:40 left on the clock. A peppering of Dartmouth shots on the Tiger goal ended with Dysenchuck finding the net with 5:09 to play, and Lee's subsequent goal came just moments later on an extra-man opportunity after junior defender Brandon Bonvino was flagged one minute for tripping with 4:56 remaining in the game.

SNY college lacrosse power rankings
If the esteemed philosopher Rowdy Roddy Piper covered lacrosse in 2013 he would say "Just when you thought you had all the answers, I changed the questions." It was a tremendous week chock full of more one-goal nail biters, furious comebacks and, of course, upsets. When the dust settled the biggest winners were Denver and Johns Hopkins, the biggest losers were the Ivy League and St. John's. Here is how I see the top 20.

Bracketology: Men's DI, Second Look April 16
Compared to some other NCAA sports (like hockey, primarily, and to a lesser degree basketball), the DI men's lacrosse selection criteria seems to leave more room for subjective interpretation. The result is comparative uncertainty on Selection Sunday, and occasionally some valid gripes among teams that were left out (like Penn State last season or Georgetown between 2008-10).
