STORIES

Marquette Lacrosse Off to Golden Start

Princeton Performs Devastating Pick at GLE
Gavin McBride could have had a ten minute tea party he was so open coming off that pick. He almost makes the play harder on eventual goal scorer Kip Orban by throwing him the ball instead of shooting it. Orban’s back is towards the goal which forces him to catch, turn, fake and finish. Not a lot of folks have the composure to do that. Sounds a lot more complex than McBride shooting it himself. Ruthless pick at GLE either way.
