College Crosse Games Of The Day.

  • Penn vs. Virginia. The Cavs caught a major L against High Point on Tuesday. 2 losses within a week will probably drop UVA out of the top 20. Virginia might be struggling at the moment, but that could make them even more desperate for a win.

    The Quakers looked good against Michigan last week, but a road game at UVA poses a tougher challenge. Moreover, Penn needs a win today to keep up with the other undefeated teams in the Ivy (Brown, Harvard, and Yale). Should be a good one in Charlottesville. 

  • Syracuse vs. Army. The Black Knights invade the Carrier Dome for a big afternoon battle against the Orange. Last year's game was a banger.  This one should be no different.

    (Ed. Note: Head on a swivel out there today, lads!)


  • Hopkins vs. North Carolina. Hopkins could really use a win today. The Jays looked decent against Loyola last week, but their victory over Navy might lose some juice after BU's OT win over the Midshipmen yesterday. On the other side you have UNC, a team looking to get back on track after their loss to Hofstra last weekend. UNC is tired of all the polls #Banter over the past week and I expect to see a very focused Carolina team today.
    (Ed. Note: I got a Eri fun fact for everyone!)

Curation.
We still need you! All the pics, screenshots, and #HotTakes from yesterday were fantastic.  We're putting everything from Saturday and today into one big Curation for tonight. So if you see something cool, hit us up at @SexyTimeLax.
(Ed. Note: One cool FACT I made up discovered yesterday, our very own, Ryan McDonnell, MIGHT be related to beloved Former Philly reporter and HUGE Villanova fan, Kacie McDonnell.

Today should be another great day.  It's our last #FebruaryLacrosse Game Day! I'm definitely sad, but it's been an awesome month though. I have a Hopkins game watch I organized so I won't be back in front of the computer until after that the inevitable UNC win. However, I will be on Twitter, so feel free to hit me up at @Eri_Barrister with more fun facts about UNC's dominance over JHU the last (*Looks at notes*) decade.  I'll definitely be back at the switchboard for Syracuse vs. Army.

Going to go with some Sublime for today's Thread song (clean version). I just need to get in the right frame of mind before Hop vs. UNC.
