Games To Watch
Binghamton @ Hobart: This should be a fun battle of Upstate New York teams, as both teams have performed very well in their first few games of the regular season. Binghamton is 1-1 with a win over Colgate and a loss over Marist, while Hobart is 2-1 and is coming off of a blowout win over Cornell. The Statesmen have scored at least 15 goals in all three games so far this year, and I expect a similar result today in Geneva or Victor, wherever they might play this game.
Duke @ Richmond: A friendly reminder that Richmond defeated Duke last year in Durham. The Spiders are definitely a much better team than they were last year, and have studs like Teddy Hatfield, Ryan Lee, and goaltender Benny Pugh in their corner. Will it be enough to stop Justin Guterding, Jack Bruckner, and goaltender Danny Fowler? Duke may have a ton of youth, but many of those younger players, including freshman Reilly Walsh, can play.
Virginia @ Syracuse: The obvious Game of the Day. Virginia is looking for their first ACC regular season win since beating the Orange in Charlottesville back in 2014. With talented guys like Zed Williams and freshmen Dox Aitken and Michael Kraus on offense, they’ve looked like a very good team to start. But after Penn upset the Wahoos last week thanks to a zone defense, will the Orange, who are without Nick Mellen for the year, be able to stymie the Cavalier offense for the second time in three games? Look for both offense to score a ton of goals, and let’s hope they do.
Syracuse is going with throwback uniforms today.
And peep the sick helmets!

On way to Syracuse we stopped by to visit Alf Jacques, the Onondaga wooden stick maker. He showed us how they make wooden sticks! pic.twitter.com/9Rw66uc0r4— Virginia Lacrosse (@UVAMensLacrosse) March 4, 2017

Song Of The Day
Let’s hope for another UVA-Cuse high scoring affair just like in 1997, which is when Return of the Mack got really popular in the USA (it came out a year earlier).
First games are at noon! Check out our Facebook page around 11:45 for a live pregame show before Virginia-Syracuse! I’ll see you out there!
