College Crosse News.

UNC is your 2017 ACC Tournament champion. WHAT A TIME TO BE ALIVE!! Shout out to Loyola as well for winning the 2017 Patriot League Tournament. The Boy Chris has everything you need to know about yesterday’s games here.

Check out Edward Lee’s post in the Baltimore Sun about Loyola’s big win over Army yesterday.

In the Patriot League playoffs, the Greyhounds scored a combined 26 goals against No. 5 seed Holy Cross and the Black Knights. And the defense surrendered a total of seven goals in those two wins. “The guys in my opinion – and I say it all the time – got what they deserved because they were mentally and physically prepared to play this game today,” Loyola coach Charley Toomey said. “I couldn’t be more proud of this group. They’re playing their best lacrosse right now, and that’s exciting.”

Our College Crosse Week 12 Top 20 is up!! Who do YOU think should be this week’s #1?Make your voice heard below!

Shout out to Butler Lacrosse for this awesome #WhitneyInOT video.

Awesome Penn State video from yesterday’s game versus Michigan.

Really good post by friend of the blog, @OrangeLax:Lack of an automatic qualifier for the ACC could hurt everyone but the ACC and Big Ten.

The NCAA took away the AQ for the ACC due to it being only a five member conference and then took away one play-in game for the 2017 postseason. Ultimately, this will most likely end up hurting every conference that is not the ACC or Big Ten. According to @laxfilmroom’s current, unofficial RPI results, all of the B10/ACC teams which will most likely make the tournament are within the top 12. Denver, Albany, and Towson are the only non-ACC/B10 teams in the top 12. The Conference that is likely to be hurt the most is the CAA. Towson is leading the CAA standings, but Hofstra could certainly win. The Tigers have a win over Johns Hopkins and an 8-4 record while Hofstra is 11-2 on the year after a 10-0 start. Whichever team does not win the AQ may very well be left out of the NCAAs.

Jacob Stover was on his A game yesterday.

What’s Up, Philly?

Philly’s Stephen Starr has been catching some heat for the disastrous Fyre Festival.

At this point, you’re probably well aware of the Fyre Festival disaster unfolding in the Bahamas. The short and sweet of it: rapper Ja Rule and tech tycoon Billy McFarland set out to host an ultra-high-end, VIPs-only music festival on the Islands of the Exumas. It came with its own video starring Kendall Jenner and Emily Ratajkowski. People who bought tickets to the festival were promised “first-class culinary experiences and a luxury atmosphere”, which meant everything from chartered yachts to morning yoga to food catering by Starr Events. But when guests arrived on Thursday, they were met with, as the New York Times put it, “soggy tents, bad food, and general disappointment verging on panic”. Obviously, the festival’s been postponed until further notice.

Hackers hold Netflix hostage: Hackers threaten the release of more Netflix shows if their demands aren’t met.

The group of hackers that leaked the upcoming fifth season of “Orange Is the New Black” this weekend may have also secured access to some three dozen other shows and movies. TheDarkOverlord, as the group calls itself, provided cybersecurity blog with a long list of movies and TV shows it claimed to have stolen from Larson Studios, a Hollywood-based audio post-production company. In addition to “Orange Is the New Black,” it also lists a number of high-profile shows from the big broadcast networks, including ABC’s “The Catch,” NBC’s “Celebrity Apprentice,” CBS’ “NCIS Los Angeles,” and Fox’s “New Girl.”
