Syracuse’s Nick DiPietro is used to making an early impact.

Syracuse lacrosse freshman defender Nick DiPietro has been in this situation before. He's the young gun thrust into a growing role on a team with players up to six years older than himself. "If you're a freshman and you're playing here there's kind of a respect that other people have," DiPietro said of how others perceive him.

Check out the highlights of Detroit's win over Jacksonville.

Now THAT’S a headline: The ice-cream-eating, nap-hating, run-on-sentence-speaking player who could rule NCAA lacrosse.

when North Carolina lacrosse player Marie McCool was a little girl, she didn't just ask her parents for a dog. She created a PowerPoint to highlight the benefits of owning a Yorkie. Shooting hoops in the driveway, she wouldn't go inside until she drained 10 in a row. "If I made nine, I'd go back to one and start again," says McCool, steady on a two-wheeler at age 3 ½. Now imagine bringing that kind of tenacity to the sport of lacrosse, something she's ridiculously skilled at and which she adored from the moment her dad placed a stick in her hands that Christmas in third grade.

Towson’s Captain Nadelen is here for all your Georgetown Lacrosse questions in this edition of the Tiger Lacrosse Report.

Speaking of the Tigers, I'm LOVING these lids.

Our man Edward Lee of the Baltimore Sun reports that Towson’s attack is still a work in progress.

Jon Mazza made quite a splash in his debut as a starting attackman, scoring six goals in No. 12 Towson’s 13-5 victory over Mount St. Mary’s on Saturday. The sophomore is the first to acknowledge, however, that he has been peppering senior teammates Joe Seider and Ryan Drenner for advice after spending last year as a member of the second midfield.

“Those guys are one of the best duos in college lacrosse,” Mazza said. “On the field, I’ve always looked up to them and tried to match their games and kind of be like them in a way. Playing with them is awesome. They have amazing chemistry because they’re best friends off the field. So playing with them is just awesome.”

Check out these two Syracuse goats just kidding around.

Here’s a nice article about Rowan men’s club lacrosse player Pat Hall.

Pat Hall had a good idea of what he was getting himself into when in April of 2015, he took this oath for the United States Marines.

A mechanical engineering major, Hall knew that he wanted to serve in some way, shape, or form. The 20-year old freshman from Mullica Hill, NJ, now runs shifts as a defensive-middie with the team, but two years ago, Hall looked to the Marines as just the challenge that he needed.

“I knew that they were the toughest. I knew that they were more select. I guess, growing up, always being an athlete, you know, I always trying to be the best at whatever I do. I saw that as a good opportunity to really push me and give me opportunities to set myself up for the rest of my life,” Hall said.

UVA's always hustling.

What’s Up, Philly?

It’s official ... Ben Simmons won’t play at all this season.

76ers rookie Ben Simmons will not play this season. The first overall pick in June's draft, Simmons had a scan of his broken right foot Thursday at the Hospital of Special Surgery in New York. It showed that his foot still hasn't fully healed, Sixers president Bryan Colangelo said at a news conference Friday. Because of the injury, Colangelo said, the team won't try to rush him into the lineup before the 2016-17 season ends.

World/National News.

German secret service spied on journalists at the BBC, The New York Times and Reuters for more than a decade.

Germany's foreign intelligence service BND long spied on journalists of the BBC, The New York Times, Reuters and other media, news weekly Der Spiegel reported Friday. Media rights group Reporters Without Borders labelled the alleged surveillance 'a monstrous attack on press freedom', voiced fears the eavesdropping was ongoing and said it was planning legal action, according to Der Spiegel. The magazine, which has extensively worked with US fugitive intelligence contractor Edward Snowden and reported on US and German espionage scandals, only cited documents it had seen.
