I did a post on Ohio State’s Tre Leclaire yesterday.

Our man Joe Keegan dropped by The Scoop Podcast to talk some lacrosse.

Boston College will face the University of Maryland in the women’s title game. You can find the highlights from the Boston College vs. Navy Semifinal game below.

Here’s the postgame press conference from Boston College’s thrilling victory over Navy.

Here are three things to watch out for in the Denver vs. Maryland game by Edward Lee of the Baltimore Sun.

Maryland (14-3) is the first No. 1 seed to make back-to-back appearances in the final four since Virginia did so in 2009 and 2010. The school had nine players earn All-American accolades, the highest total since 1998. Four of them – senior attackman Matt Rambo (40 goals and 43 assists), junior midfielder Connor Kelly (42 G, 11 A), senior defenseman Tim Muller (31 ground balls, 16 caused turnovers, 4 G, 1 A), and senior short-stick defensive midfielder Isaiah Davis-Allen (37 GB, 2 CT, 1 G, 3 A) – were placed on the first team, which marked the third time in the NCAA era that the program had four first-team selections. Here are a few factors that could play a role in the outcome at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Mass., on Saturday at 2:30 p.m.

Also from Edward Lee, here are three things to watch out for in the Towson vs. Ohio State game.

1) Towson’s offense. On March 15, the Tigers were shut out in the first and fourth quarters in a 6-3 loss to Ohio State. But the offense has scored a combined 22 goals in wins against No. 7 seed Penn State and Syracuse in the NCAA tournament. Meanwhile, the Buckeyes defense has surrendered 15 goals in the postseason including only four in a three-goal win against Loyola Maryland in the first round. Coach Shawn Nadelen said Towson does not have to stray from its usual offensive philosophy at this stage of the season. “We have to stick to our identity, and that’s grinding out our offensive possessions and making their defense really work by being aggressive in our dodging, by being cohesive, by having good chemistry in our off-ball movement, being disciplined in how we move the ball, how we move off-ball, sharing it, which is something that our offense did a really good job of [against the Orange],” he said. “If we can stay consistent with that, we should be able to continue to generate good offensive looks and good shots on the cage.”

What’s Up, Philly?

Everyone’s at the Shore this weekend.

There are certainly plenty of great things to see and do at the Jersey Shore, but its 127 miles of beachfront will always be the main draw. And while a bed of sand and a horizon of salt water waves are the key components, the differences beyond that can be vast, with beach experiences ranging from natural to urban, boho to urbane. So, whatever you may be looking for, here are some lesser-known spots that offer unique perspectives.

World/National News.

British Airways had to cancel flights from Heathrow and Gatwick after its systems went down all over the world.

BRITISH Airways have cancelled all flights from Heathrow and Gatwick airports until 6pm after their computer systems were brought down across the entire world. Angry passengers on social media have said that their flights aren’t taking off, that there are huge queues at check-in, and that they can’t use the app or website.
