Rosemont, Ill. - Maryland was selected as the unanimous preseason favorite to claim the Big Ten Championship in men's lacrosse in a poll conducted by the conference's six head coaches. The coaches also selected three students from their own team as preseason honorees. The Terrapins were followed in the preseason poll by second-place Johns Hopkins, Penn State in third place, Ohio State and Rutgers in a fourth-place tie, and sixth-place Michigan.

You’ll hear this a lot this week, but the New England Patriots have a former Division I lacrosse player at wide receiver in Chris Hogan. They also have former college lacrosse players at head coach, safeties coach and defensive assistant.
Head coach Bill Belichick played lacrosse at Wesleyan, safeties coach Steve Belichick played at Rutgers and defensive assistant Mike Pellegrino played at Johns Hopkins. “It just turns out to be a coincidence,” Pellegrino said about the lacrosse connection. “It’s a very close-knit community outside of when you graduate from college. You just run into someone else who plays lacrosse. You have something in common, something to talk about. The environments are different but the same.”
Here’s BOSS Belichick telling a story of watching Chris Hogan play lacrosse against his son, Steve.
“We have been to the top and know what it feels like to win," said redshirt senior midfielder Michael Tagliaferri, "and we are all ready to go back to that point.” The difference between this year and last, according to Breschi, is that this year the weight of all those non-championship years is gone. “Now, [the players] can play free and fast without being paralyzed by pressure,” he said.

What’s Up, Philly?
Hayley Lampshire, 27, from Kidlington, Oxfordshire, she discovered her twins were suffering from a rare condition meaning they shared one amniotic sac, instead of having one each. That mean that if the babies moved around in the womb doctors warned their umbilical cords could become tangled, starving them, or even strangling each other... The only way they would survive the pregnancy was if they both stayed still. But she was amazed when she went for a scan – and saw her two boys cuddling each other – and even appeared to be holding hands. At every scan, Hayley was amazed to see her twins holding on to each other.
