Hey everyone! We’ve got another big day! We have another 32 games on the schedule and with most of them conference games, we should get a good amount of really competitive match-ups.

Our College Crosse Game Day Live Stream starring The Kid Chris is over on our Facebook page and will start around 9:00. Here’s Chris’ Power Rankings for this week to get you started.

Below is today’s Big Board. Clicking on the team name will take you to that team’s homepage. Clicking on the Stream cell will take you to the broadcast of that game, while the Live Stats cell will take you to the live stats of that game.

Games To Watch.

Duke vs. Notre Dame: Probably the game of the day today. Duke has a relatively pedestrian RPI despite having won 6 out of their last 7 games. A win versus Notre Dame today would give the Blue Devils a signature win on the season and a real chance at the #2 seed in the ACC Tournament.

BU vs. Army: BU is Army’s first opponent with a winning record since Army’s game vs. Syracuse on Feb. 25th. Additionally, while the Black Knights have won their last 8 games, they have had some trouble in their last two contests; Army beat Bucknell by 1 last weekend and defeated Colgate by 2 two weekends ago. BU poses a much more difficult challenge than Army’s had to face in over a month, and the Terriers might have enough to pull out the upset today.

Hofstra vs. Delaware: Thunderdome!! Hofstra may be one of the hottest teams in D1 right now, but the last highly ranked team to come to Delaware for a game went home with an L (Ed. Note: Sorry Rutgers!!). The Pride’s a road favorite in this game but I wouldn’t overlook the Blue Hens if I were a Hofstra fan.

Attachments.

This week's Princeton’s Laxcast features John Barbour, John McPhee and Pat Moran.

You definitely need to read Adam’s Big Ten weekend preview.

Week 1 of B1G lacrosse play didn’t exactly live up to the hype of my previous conference primer. I expected three close, hard-fought contests between evenly-matched teams and what we got were essentially three blowouts.

First, on Friday night, Johns Hopkins handled those scrappy Jersey boys from Rutgers 12-6. “Handled” might be putting it lightly—the Jays controlled the game from the opening whistle and never looked back. Kyle Marr had another studly game with 5 goals and an assist, Shack Stanwick orchestrated the offense with Mozart-like splendor to the tune of 4 goals and 2 assists, and goalie Brock Turnbaugh—getting the start over graduate transfer Gerald Logan—was a brick wall in net, saving 12. For the first time since the demolishing North Carolina in February, Hopkins simply won all their matchups. Nick Fields put in another All-American performance, rendering Rutgers leading man Jules Heningburg irrelevant. Rutgers is certainly capable of better play, but they looked out of it on Friday night, and will need to turn things around fast. The Jays laugh at your silly “RTempo” hashtags.

Games start soon! I’ll see you out there!
