Lacrosse the Internet: March 23, 2015

Here's some stuff you should read.

I went 24 of 32 in the first round and 11 of 16 in the second round. That isn't terrible, but I'm still boned in my pool.

Reaction: No. 13 Princeton 11, No. 10 Yale 10
Sammy Gravitte grew up in polar-opposite cultures. On one end, the 6-foot-2, 200-pound Princeton sophomore longstick middie was around sports. At the other end, Gravitte got a chance to cultivate another passion as a singer and performer. In season, he’s even allowed to perform. A few weeks ago, he was starring at Princeton’s McCarter Theater in a show called "Spring Awakening" when his mother, Tony Award-winning actress Debbie Gravitte, had to take him to the Tigers’ game at Maryland on March 7, and got him back in time for the show that night.

Marquette's magic mix of second-half comebacks, one-goal wins and, up until Saturday afternoon, undefeated record in the program's third varsity season, finally met a situation it couldn't overcome in a 10-9 loss at Georgetown. But the Golden Eagles were this close to doing what they do again.
