ABC 8 news with a nice segment on Richmond’s big win over Fairfield.

Make sure you read Marisa’s post on BU’s win over UMass Lowell.

After a thriller in Providence last weekend, Boston University found itself a win in much different fashion. Jumping out to a 3-0 lead and never looking back, the Terriers thwarted UMass Lowell, 18-8. Led by six points from midfielder Cal Dearth, the Terriers exploded offensively in the first half and didn’t let up. James Burr scored three times after not getting the starting nod, one goal short of his career-high four he scored against the River Hawks last season.

Lynchburg vs. Salisbury was a great game this past weekend! Here is a highlight reel of Lynchburg’s goals from their 8-9 loss to Salisbury.

First football ... now we’re losing BALLERS to cross country. SAD!

Henry Wynne was a lacrosse player. Growing up in Fairfield County, he started playing the sport in elementary school. In his freshman year, the lacrosse coach at Staples High School in Westport wanted his players to stay in shape before spring rolled around. He suggested that they play another sport — or that they could lift weights. "He knew he'd be too lazy to lift on his own," Henry's mother, Julie Van Norden, said. "One option was soccer, which every kid in Fairfield County has played since age 2. He said 'Absolutely not,' to water polo, even though he's a good swimmer. He said, 'The only thing left is cross country.'

Marquette did a preview of their attack. You should read it.

Replacing the building blocks of Marquette's first NCAA tournament roster may appear daunting, but the foundation laid by its 2016 senior class has set the program up for continued success entering the 2017 campaign. Head coach Joe Amplo returns all but one starter in his offensive unit, though the former defensive coordinator is tasked with replacing three USILA All-Americans on the other side of the ball in MLL players Liam Byrnes, Jacob Richard and B.J. Grill.

I NEED Ryan to do this like I need air to breath.

Oh yes!!!

Newsday believes that “Josh Byrne, Hofstra have stuff to get to NCAA Tournament.”

It was as symbolic as it was slick. During the third period of a preseason scrimmage against Hobart, Hofstra senior Josh Byrne raced down the middle in transition and found freshman Ryan Tierney at the right side of the crease. Tierney finished what Byrne started. It was not only a passing of the ball but also an eventual passing of the torch.

Syracuse’s Brendan Bomberry's behind-the-back goal versus Siena on Saturday was the No. 6 play on SportsCenter's Top 10 plays of the day on Sunday.

It appears that Jahlil Okafor is not long for Philadelphia: Jahlil Okafor not on team plane to Charlotte.
