We have an all-Michigan clash tonight between the Michigan Wolverines & the Detroit Mercy Titans. Unfortunately, there is no stream for today’s game (Ed. Note: *Insert sad face here*), so we only have the live stats for today’s game, which you can find here. The game starts at 7:00.
College Crosse Preview.
This should be an interesting match-up tonight. The Wolverines are 2-0 for the first time in program history and even got some love in this week’s Inside Lacrosse Media Poll. The Titans are 0-1, but actually looked pretty good for portions of their season-opener versus Ohio State. This will be the second Big Ten team in a row for Detroit, so you got to give them props for not ducking their power conference regional rivals.
This will be the fourth (complete) game between Michigan and Detroit. The Wolverines lead the series 2-1. Detroit actually won the first game between the two squads back in 2012 by a score of 13-9. Michigan won the next match-up in 2014 in overtime 14-13. (The two actually played each other in 2013, but with Detroit leading 4-3 in the second quarter “a second lightning delay of the game sent the teams to the locker room. With the storm never letting up, the call was made to suspend the game and it was ultimately canceled.”) Michigan won pretty handedly in 2015 (15-6), and an ice storm canceled last year’s match-up before the two even stepped on the field. #SpringSport
I will be interested in seeing if Detroit can handle some of Michigan’s scorers, especially Brent Noseworthy & Ian King. Both King & Noseworthy have gotten off to good starts this year, as both are tied for the team lead in points with 9 (Noseworthy 7 Gs & 2 As and King 5 Gs & 4 As). Detroit’s got some hitters of their own, especially Matt Vangalen who put up 5 points (2 Gs & 3 As) against the Buckeyes back on Feb. 11.
We taped a new Crossecast yesterday!
Our boy Joe dropped another awesome post today. This one’s on the Monmouth Hawks and their victory over Villanova last weekend.
