Don’t forget to read 18 Stripes’ post on the UVA vs. Notre Dame game later today.

#2 Notre Dame men’s lacrosse will play ACC foe #12 Virginia Cavaliers in the ESPNU Old Spice game o’ the week in Charlottesville, Saturday, 6:00 pm. We can’t imagine there would be any conflicting game you’d rather be watching on Saturday, since the onlyhoops game worth watching should end by 2:30. However, if you do have basketball on your mind and in your viewing plans, it will be worth switching over to this game from time-to-time.

Our man Edward Lee from the Baltimore Sun with 3 things to watch out for in the Maryland vs. Villanova game.

1) Tempo. Only five offenses have launched more shots than Villanova has with 294 attempts, and that is a testament to the frenzied pace of play the Wildcats prefer. That style was on display when they erupted for 60 shots in their 17-15 decision over Brown last Saturday. Maryland has limited opponents to an average of 32.2 attempts, but can the team handcuff a Villanova squad that has taken no fewer than 42 shots in a single game this spring?

Ben Williams and Sergio Salcido preview the Hopkins vs. Syracuse game today.

BOSS Galloway chats about the Dolphins and their upcoming game against Richmond on the Between the Pipes podcast.

Nice moves by Wooster’s Marco Peticca to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day.

What’s Up, Philly?

Philly Port’s Great Again!!: The Port of Philadelphia is getting a huge upgrade.”

More cars, more containerized freight, and more cargo such as wood pulp and lumber will all be arriving on larger ships and creating more jobs.

The Port of Philadelphia is getting its first major capital investment in four decades for terminals, wharfs, and cargo cranes, with a $300 million cash infusion from the Wolf administration. The state is landlord and owner of 16 piers and terminals on the Delaware River.

Fixing ship berths, buying new cranes, updating and relocating warehouses, and doubling cargo-handling space is expected to create 2,000 waterfront jobs, and nearly 7,000 total jobs for truckers, rail workers, suppliers, and port-related businesses.
