Reaction, Photos: No. 4 Denver 15, Brown 9 in NCAA First Round
Several inches of snow couldn’t stand in the way of the NCAA Tournament first-round game between Brown and Denver on Sunday. By gametime, the field was clear, although the snow bordering the pitch signified that everyone dodged a bullet, and everyone gave some serious dap the DU grounds crew for getting the field ready.

Photos, Reaction: No. 3 North Carolina 19, Colgate 12 in NCAA First Round
No. 3-seeded North Carolina moved on in the 2015 NCAA Tournament with a 19-12 win over the unseeded and 12th-ranked Colgate  at Fetzer Field on Sunday.

Photos, Reaction: Johns Hopkins 19, No. 7 Virginia 7 in NCAA First Round
Johns Hopkins dominated the No. 7 seed Virginia Cavaliers from start to finish in Charlottesville, winning the NCAA Tournament first round game 19-7. Hopkins, the Big Ten champions, converted over 50% of their shots in the first half en route to a 13-2 goal halftime and never looked back.

Denver into Home NCAA QF With Win Over Brown
Bill Tierney described it as Armageddon. The University of Denver lacrosse coach was referring to the relentless rain-turned snow plaguing his team's preparations for its NCAA tournament opener against Brown. Yet the end-of-times allusion also fits the onslaught Pioneers' goalie Ryan LaPlante faced and withstood against the Bears, en route to a 15-9 Denver victory. Brown pelted LaPlante with 19 first-half shots, penetrating his defenses only twice.

Syracuse lacrosse attack Kevin Rice uses late hit to 'kick start' career-best performance
Maybe it was the way Marist was defending him. Maybe it was the nerves of starting his final NCAA tournament run. Maybe it was the excitement of graduation earlier in the day.

UNC advances in NCAA men’s lacrosse tournament with 19-12 victory against Colgate
It had been a while since the North Carolina men’s lacrosse team had played a game – 15 days, to be exact – and so there was "some rust to shake off" on Sunday, coach Joe Breschi said, and that was especially true on defense.

Dom Starsia said a few years ago that any season Virginia doesn’t make the Final Four in lacrosse should be considered a failure.

The youth game is really booming and growing in Denver too, and it's going to be exciting in years to come to see what they produce."
