Major Guest List News.
- No one's perfect. DOWN GOES YALE! Brown dropped the last undefeated team in D1 over the weekend in a thriller up in Providence. Yale was playing with fire for the last few weeks and finally got burned against the Bears. Good win for Brown and excellent game by our boy, Dylan Molloy (5 Gs & 1 A).

- Loyola. After a great start, Loyola went into a bit of a funk in March. The Hounds lost 3 out of 4 after their 3-0 start and things looked pretty grim for Loyola fans. Fast forward a month later and Loyola is on a 5-game winning streak, sits alone at #2 in the Patriot League, and is no lower than 12th on any of the Big Board polls. Amazing turnaround by BOSS Toomey's lads.
Navy. The Midshipmen continued their excellent season with a HUGE win over Army. The win was significant for Navy, as it broke the tie between the two for the top spot in the Patriot League, and (probably more importantly) it gave Navy a big win over their archrival. Great job by BOSS Sowell and his staff.
- Cornell. Welcome back, Big Red! Cornell is back on the Big Board after two big wins last week over Syracuse and Lehigh. Cornell is on a bit of a roll, winning 3 out of its last 4, and they seem to be clicking on offense. With Harvard losing to Penn over the weekend, the race for 4th in the Ivy between Harvard, Cornell, and Princeton, is going to be an exciting one to watch.
Duke. Duke's win over Virginia eliminated the Cavaliers from the ACC race, snapped a two game losing streak, and clinched a spot in the ACC tournament for the Blue Devils. Not a bad weekend for the Blue Devils.
- Stony Brook. I knew Stony Brook would drop a bit if they lost a game down the stretch, as there are some legitimate questions about SBU's SOS (According to LaxPower weighted SOS page, the Seawolves have the 37th SOS in D1). However, I was happy to see that most of the polls on the Big Board still had the Seawolves right around 13th or 14th. *Everyone stares at Lacrosse Magazine Poll.*
