Quint's Top 20: Patriot Free-For-All as Games Heat Up
Holy Cross took down Army, Virginia got past Cornell, and Denver prevailed in OT against Notre Dame. Boston University registered a marquee win over Colgate in the wide open Patriot League. Things are heating up; the weather and conference games bring a heightened state of importance to March. Television games this week feature a quality double-header: Notre Dame at Virginia on Saturday at noon (ESPNU), followed by Johns Hopkins at Syracuse at 2 p.m. (ESPNU).

Q&A with ESPN men's lacrosse analyst Mark Dixon
ESPN analyst Mark Dixon, who provided play-by-play for No. 16 Johns Hopkins’ 13-8 victory over Navy on Saturday, will call a pair of Blue Jays games on Saturday, March 21. The former Johns Hopkins midfielder will cover the women’s home game against Georgetown at 2 p.m. and then stick around for the men’s game against Virginia at 6 p.m. Dixon, who can be followed on Twitter at @DixonLacrosse, talked about a certain top 10 team in the Midwest not named Notre Dame, a Patriot League team that posted a disappointing effort, and his front-runner for the Tewaaraton Award.

Nike/LM Division I Men's Top 20
A clear top-five group has emerged through the first couple weeks of the season, but the same cannot be said for the other end of the Nike/LM Top 20. Teams near the bottom and on the fringe of the rankings continue to beat each other with seemingly no predictable pattern.

McAnaney: Denver's Rivalry Win Tops the Weekend
I know it's early, and choosing teams 15-20 in the rankings is usually difficult, but I can never remember a week like this where once you get past the top 10, you might as well throw darts at the wall to get 11 through 20. We have become accustomed to parity in today's game, but the resumes for some teams are less than impressive.

ICYMI: Ben Williams and the Faceoff Renaissance
Wasn't this supposed to be the season the NCAA rules committee marginalized faceoff men? Au contraire.

Is This Week Four Lacrosse Poll Serious?
Is this week four lacrosse poll serious? Which poll am I talking about? You be the judge! In bold you can find my picks for the IL Media Poll (they do actually let me vote! How nice is that?), and in italics, you can find the team that the rest of the media picked for the same spot. In italic bold, you can find Quint Kessenich’s Top 20 picks.

ACC Power Rankings: Class is in Session
Every week we will highlight various storylines in the ACC Power Rankings. Everything from individual players to special teams to intangibles to off-field issues will be ranked from worst to best – starting with the unranked lowlights.

Ohio State men's lacrosse bounces back, edges Hofstra 9-8
The Ohio State men’s lacrosse team picked up a one-goal win against Hofstra after losing by the same margin against Marquette six days earlier.

Stony Brook extends Rutgers' losing skid
One step forward, one step back.

Michigan's transition defense still a work in progress
When Michigan men’s lacrosse coach John Paul decided to install a new offense at the beginning of the season, he knew he was taking a risk.

No. 9 Terps deliver first loss to No. 10 Tigers
Men’s lacrosse (3-1) suffered its first loss of this young season this past weekend. The No. 10 Maryland Terps (4-1) quelled a hot No. 9 Princeton offense — the Tigers had scored at least 14 goals in all three previous games — by a score of 11-4. An 8-1 second half Maryland run highlighted the host’s victory, while a season-low mark of four goals scored, all unassisted, made Princeton’s loss particularly harsh.
