GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOD MORNING, College Crosse Nation!! Thanks for making us a part of your day! Here are your links for March 15, 2017.

College Crosse News.

Nice to see the Hobart offense humming after a few off games: Hobart Offense Explodes, Beats Canisius 18-11.

Our newest Crossecast is now up!

It’s Hopkins-Syracuse week, which means College Crossecast is only in the mood to talk about that. As a result, Adam joins the usual gang of Ryan, Safe, and Chris to make the neutral fan wish the rivalry never existed.

Nice BTB goal by Kerrigan Miller of USC.

UMBC is starting to see the fruits of their labor on defense.

“They just put together a comprehensive game plan,” Moran said Tuesday morning. “I think the scout team is giving them a great look, and I think our guys are just really prepared with a Plan A, a Plan B and a Plan C. They’re really buying in. It’s fun to see, and it’s been a lot of great improvement. I do think that maybe starting out with some of those more difficult teams really gave us a little bit of a baptism by fire, but also showed us the pace and speed that we needed to play at to be an elite defensive group.”

Shout out to BOSS Danowski on his 376th win.

When John Danowski was hired to come to Duke, he inherited a program reeling after three of its players had been falsely accused of rape, the head coach who led the team to the 2005 national title game had been fired and the end of the Blue Devils' 2006 season had been cancelled. But Duke had also recently showed it could be one of the top programs in the nation, and Danowski cemented that status, quickly putting the lacrosse case in the rearview mirror. And after leading the Blue Devils to eight straight Final Fours in his first eight seasons from 2007 to 2014 and the team's first three national championships, the former Hofstra head coach has continued adding to his legacy.

Our man Edward Lee from the Baltimore Sun writes that the Terps aren’t complaining about their unexpected bye-week.

Fourteen days will have passed between Maryland’s most recent game at Notre Dame on March 4 and Saturday’s visit from Villanova at Maryland Stadium in College Park at 4 p.m. But the layoff was not scheduled. The Terps (4-1) were scheduled to play at No. 8 Albany (3-1) on Saturday, but dangerous temperatures and strong winds blanketing upstate New York forced both sides to agree to postpone the matchup until April 12. Coaches and players generally abhor deviations from the routine, but Maryland coach John Tillman said the team is not trying to dwell on having what amounts to an unplanned bye.
“We got back on Saturday and said, ‘Hey, obviously everybody wanted to play, and it’s disappointing, but like anything else, you’ve just got to turn the page and move forward and look at the next opportunity, which is Villanova which is a really good team, and we’ve got to start focusing on that,’” he said Tuesday morning. “I think there’s obviously a week of prep that we did for Albany that will ultimately help us get better. When you get ready to play a top-10 team like that, the kids are pretty focused. So hopefully, that’s something that we can actually build on. We didn’t get the two hours of playing time in, but we did get some benefits from our preparation.”

WETM 18 goes old school with this 1986 Horseheads Boys Lacrosse video.

The National Lacrosse League signed a deal with Xumo to provide their content.

Under the deal, Xumo will provide access to the NLL’s games and highlights plus the league’s new NLLTV subscription network. But Xumo viewers won’t have to buy into NLLTV to watch the games. They can watch the games and highlights after they’ve run on NLLTV.

Xumo is included on smart TV platforms such as Magnavox, Panasonic, Philips, Sanyo and Vizio. It just became available on LG smartTV’s. It’s also on Roku connected TV devices and through iOS as well as Android devices.

What’s Up, Philly?

So Winter Storm Stella was a dud.

Dario Saric says his mom helped him be a better player.

Since then, Saric has no longer been considered just a valuable backup. He's now a bona fide cornerstone alongside injured rookies Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons. "I want to say my mom helped me to be better," Saric said. "She makes me be full, like 100 percent in my body and my soul, to feel like I'm at home."
