The four in the middle of the front row are all lacrosse players. From left to right: Luke Sabia (LSM, Mount St. Mary’s; also the brother of Penn State defenseman and Haverford School grad Chris Sabia), Anthony Giuliani (FOGO; Penn), Chris Hladczuk (A, Yale), and Brett Baskin (A, Johns Hopkins). Congrats to all 13 Lasallians, and especially to my lax homies. I was a senior at La Salle when they were freshmen, and now they’ve all grown up.

But we may have the newest fad coming soon. The Andy’s Coming Challenge. Someone yells “Andy’s coming!” and everyone falls down like toys. It comes from the Toy Story movies.
Peep the sky.

UNC shooting some hoops. Should I remind them what happened in the National Championship game?
When you go to Carolina, you have to find time for some hoops workouts. Team Cherokee won the day with a 4-0 record pic.twitter.com/9SiJSVyy3b— UNC Men's Lacrosse (@UNCMensLacrosse) November 10, 2016

Johns Hopkins released a tribute video to legendary coach Bob Scott.
That’s not good! Division II Quincy’s first head coach, Christian Diaz, resigned Monday, delaying the start of the school’s first season. More from David Adam of the Herald-Whig.
[Marty] Bell said Diaz's decision, coupled with the current financial situation of the university, forced the suspension of the start of the lacrosse program. QU was expected to field its first team during the 2017-18 school year.
Quincy University leaders warned faculty and staff last month to be prepared for significant budget adjustments because the school is facing an unexpected $5 million budgetary shortfall this fiscal year.
Bell said the school had signed no players and had just started working on a schedule, initiating conversations with the Eastern College Athletic Conference.
"We weren't that far into it," he said. "We were literally just starting to recruit. The fact that was hadn't got that far made it easier for us to kick the can down the road a little."
A mansion once owned by Henry Rowan was the scene of a big fire.
Legendary Canadian singer-songwriter Leonard Cohen passed away at the age of 82.
VIDEO OF THE DAY
In honor of Veterans Day, here’s a great video from 2011 about the first ever Fallen Heroes Classic between La Salle (my alma mater) and DeMatha (Paul Rabil’s alma mater). Travis Manion was a La Salle grad, while Brendan Looney was a DeMatha grad. Both went to the Naval Academy.
