Games To Watch

Bucknell @ Villanova: The Bison and Wildcats are riding off big wins on Saturday. Bucknell gave BU their first loss of the season on the road, while the Wildcats gave us a very good #WhitneyInOT upset win over Maryland. The game should be high-scoring, with Bucknell being spearheaded by the duo of Will Sands, Sean O’Brien, and Connor O’Hara, while Nova counters with Jake Froccaro, Jack Curran, and Christian Cuccinello.

Stony Brook @ Hofstra: The Pride are 6-0 and ranked fifth in this week’s Media Poll. Five of their wins have been by one or two goals, with the only wide margin coming against NJIT (16 goals). Josh Byrne had a hat-trick four minutes into their 11-10 win over Providence on Saturday and leads the team with 20 goals and 12 assists for 32 points. But the Seawolves are on a two-game skid after starting the season 4-0, including a loss to UMBC to start America East play on Saturday. Alex Corpolongo had five goals in the loss, but the team needs more scoring power. The homie Ryan will be in attendance for the Long Island Darby.

Harvard @ Boston University: This is the game of the night in my mind, as both teams are pretty even, and both teams are looking to bounce back after losses on Saturday. The Crimson are also on a two-game losing skid after falling in their Ivy League opener to Brown on Saturday. Morgan Cheek has a team-high 21 goals and 14 assists to lead Harvard in scoring. Joe Lang is the only other scorer with double digit points (14). As mentioned above, BU ran into a solid goaltending performance from Christian Klipstein and a very patient Bison offense for their first loss of the season. Jack Wilson led the way with a hat-trick and an assist. He is tied with Cal Dearth with a team-high 15 goals. This will be another great Massachusetts matchup, with the Terriers taking last year’s meeting in Cambridge, 9-8.

I’d also watch the Providence-UMass Lowell game as an under-the-radar matchup, and even Holy Cross-Brown.

Song of the Day

When I ran into Dan Aburn on Saturday at Homewood, he called this song the warmup song of 2017 in college lacrosse. I think I know why.

Games start at 3 pm. I’ll see you out there!
