STORIES

Reaction: Georgetown 13, No. 14 Loyola 12

The Week 6 update to the McEwen FOGO Ratings starts to see more consistency at the top of the ratings as the run of freshman and new starters debuting in the top 10 seems to have come to an end.

Analyzing the Impact of the Face-off Rule Changes
When the NCAA Men’s Lacrosse Rules Committee made its recommendations to rule changes last summer, the rational given for making it illegal to carry the ball in the back of the stick was simple: "The committee does not believe carrying the ball in the back of the stick was ever intended to be part of the game."

Youth Movement Helping Georgetown Turn the Corner
The Georgetown Hoyas sense they are turning the corner. Under third-year men's lacrosse coach Kevin Warne, the Hoyas have gone all in on a youth movement that is driving one of the country's more notable offenses through the first half of 2015. They see themselves as Big East contenders. They see themselves becoming relevant again on the national stage soon.

Donovan, Lintner, Lead Red to Victory with Clutch Goals
The Cornell men’s lacrosse team came out victorious in a nailbiter against Colgate on a cold Ithaca night, defeating the Raiders 10-9 in overtime in the Red’s first home game of the season. The victory extended the Red’s winning streak over Colgate to ten games and improved their all time record against the Raiders to 41-7-1.

Postscript from Georgetown at Loyola Maryland men's lacrosse
Georgetown coach Kevin Warne was elated after Wednesday night's game against No. 14 Loyola Maryland, and it wasn't solely because of the Hoyas' 13-12 win at Ridley Athletic Complex. It also included what the outcome meant to assistant coaches Justin Ward and Jack Runkel, a pair of former Greyhounds.
