Lacrosse the Internet: December 1, 2014

It's December. We're on the precipice of lacrosse.

I'm back from traveling to more than a half-dozen cities and towns over the last two weeks. The road blows.

UDM Improvement ’15: Turnovers
Detroit’s story has been relatively consistent in the time I’ve been covering the team: The Titans have been very good defensively, but subpar on the offensive side of the ball. Bringing that portion of the team (rankings in the past four years: No. 46, 51, 55, 56 nationally from 2011-14) more in line with the other (Nos. 17, 34, 23, and 22 in the same span) can see the team make rapid improvement.

The NXT Philly Freshman Showcase lived up to expectations last Saturday in Downingtown, Pa., as dozens of the most talked about first-year high school players turned out to compete in front of all of the top college programs. The showcase was a part of a two-day event, with a team invitational for the 2018 class held on Sunday, which saw just as many if not more coaches in attendance.
