UnCensered: Previewing a Tasty Menu of Matchups
I take a week off from college lacrosse and the sky continues to fall. A Denver team that looked like they had defined "offensive efficiency" gets edged by ECAC foe Fairfield. A Syracuse outfit that played too close to the fire for too long (five straight one-goal games) finally got burnt in a loss to upstate rival Hobart. Without the services of phenoms Miles and Lyle Thompson, Albany got clipped by cross-town rival Siena. All across Division I men's lacrosse, parity continued to rear its head and little tears could be seen coming from the various bracketologists' eyes.

2013 Lehigh Lacrosse Player Blog: Ring Chasing
Last weekend was a special one for the fourteen members of our senior class, as we were all honored for Senior Day versus Lafayette.

The No. 12 men’s lacrosse team (8-4 overall, 3-2 Ivy League) will look to finish their season in style this Saturday, taking on No. 6 Cornell (11-2, 5-0) at MetLife Stadium in New Jersey. The two Ivy League opponents will renew their storied rivalry to kick off the Konica Minolta Big City Classic.
