Lacrosse the Internet: March 30, 2015

It's a new week, chock full of potential terror.

Has someone invented the breakfast hot dog yet?

STORIES

Reaction: No. 3 Maryland 13, Michigan 4
In the inaugural B1G game for both programs, the No. 3 Maryland Terrapins came away with a 13-4 victory over the Michigan Wolverines at Byrd Stadium on Sunday. Maryland improved to 8-1, while Michigan falls to 4-5.

Photos, Reaction: No. 4 North Carolina 15, No. 6 Duke 14
The troika of Jimmy Bitter, Joey Sankey and Chad Tutton helped No. 4 North Carolina claim their first ACC win over the No. 6 Duke Blue Devils in front of a crowd of 5,177 at Fetzer Field on Sunday. Bitter and Sankey each posted three goals and two assists, while Tutton scored four.

Reaction: No. 13 Brown 10, No. 10 Princeton 8
This went against the template, shattered the way Brown had been winning games this season into miniscule pieces. The Bears’ blink-and-score, rapid-fire offensive machine took a hiatus on Sunday, replaced by a staunch defense and secondary scoring that later this spring could spell huge dividends if Brown continues to play the way it has.

Sunday Post: Navy's Youth Movement, Inaugural Big Ten Lacrosse
A statistic caught my eye at the game between Navy and Boston University on Saturday in Annapolis, Md.

Photos, Reaction: No. 5 Denver 19, No. 14 Georgetown 7
The No. 5 Denver Pioneers used a 13-goal run in the first half to separate themselves from the visiting No. 14 Georgetown Hoyas in front of a sold-out, record crowd of 3,117 at Peter Barton Lacrosse Stadium. The Pioneers were led by Connor Cannizzaro (4G, 3A), Erik Adamson (4G, 1A), Tyler Pace (3G) and a dominant performance by face-off specialist Trevor Baptiste (25-of-26) en route to a 19-7 win.

Highlights, Reaction: No. 2 Notre Dame 13, No. 1 Syracuse 12, 2OT
It was easily the most hyped game of the 2015 season and for good reason. Undefeated and top ranked Syracuse came to play second ranked Notre Dame in a conference matchup that undoubtedly will help determine the outcome of easily the best conference in college lacrosse.

Reaction, Highlights: Colgate 11, No. 16 Loyola 4
Colgate stopped the bleeding, Loyola posted its worst offensive output in five years and the Patriot League playoff picture became even more muddled following the Raiders’ 11-4 win over the Cascade/Maverik Media Poll No. 16 Greyhounds at Ridley Athletic Complex.

Reaction: No. 12 Marquette 9, Villanova 8
Joe Amplo may try to low key it as much as possible. It’s not going to work. The Marquette coach is brewing something good in Milwaukee and, so far, it continues to be one of the best stories of the 2015 lacrosse season.

Reaction: No. 18 Towson 6, UMass 3
Relying heavily on the strength of its defense, Towson took out UMass in their CAA opener.

Notre Dame Rallies to Hand No. 1 Syracuse First Loss
