Our man Edward Lee of the Baltimore Sun wrote a great preview post for today’s game between Ohio State & Maryland, the third match-up this year between the two squads.

The NCAA Division I men’s lacrosse tournament final has all the makings of a grudge match pitting top-seeded Maryland and No. 3 seed Ohio State, a pair of Big Ten teams that split two earlier meetings, with the Terps capturing the conference’s tournament championship on the Buckeyes’ home turf in Columbus just three weeks ago.
But on the eve of Monday’s title game at 1 p.m. here at Gillette Stadium, players and coaches from both sides took great pains to express their mutual admiration for each other. “They’ve had a great year,” Maryland senior defenseman Tim Muller said. “They’re obviously here for a reason. So we have a ton of respect for them, a ton. So we’re just going to look at it the same as every other game. We can’t really look at them with dislike or anything.” Said Ohio State senior attackman Eric Fannell: “I’m excited to play Maryland again, and the whole team is excited for Maryland again. They’re a very good team. We have a lot of respect for them, and every time we play them, we play to the best of our ability. It’s a Big Ten matchup again, grudge match. We couldn’t be more thrilled to play Maryland again, especially on the biggest stage in NCAA lacrosse.”

Our man Joe Keegan did a great post about the two semifinal games on Saturday.

Shout out to the Maryland Terps for winning the D1 women’s national championship yesterday over Boston College.

After the Maryland women’s lacrosse team had sealed a 16-13 victory over Boston College in the national championship game Sunday afternoon, clinching its third title in four seasons and 14th national crown overall, Zoe Stukenberg realized there was nothing left to conquer. As the celebration began, she turned to her coaches and teammates for reaffirmation on a 23-0 season.
“Wait, we didn’t lose. Did we just go undefeated this year?” Stukenberg said within earshot of Maryland Coach Cathy Reese, who dried her eyes as she recounted the moment afterward at Gillette Stadium.
Stukenberg wasn’t really oblivious to Maryland’s unblemished run this year, and the senior captain and her teammates played like they embraced the stakes as heavy favorites against the Eagles on Sunday. Boston College (17-7) had unloaded everything it had on the top-seeded Terrapins, who nearly blew a five-goal lead in the second half before stabilizing with a crucial 5-1 run late.

What’s Up, Philly?

Lots of articles out now about Philly’s District Attorney, Seth Williams. His corruption trial starts up in June: Claiming 'Taco Bell' tastes, Philly DA Williams drew questions early on with elaborate campaign spending.

Even before Seth Williams became district attorney, his advisers worried that his frequent use of campaign funds for what appeared to be personal expenses might one day land him in trouble. Questionable spending on haircuts and hotel stays and sloppy accounting in the use of his mother’s American Express card prompted his then-finance director Aubrey Montgomery to confiscate Williams’ campaign debit card in 2008. Nearly a year later, she urged other staffers to keep a close watch on his political committee’s coffers. “The candidate should have very limited access to campaign funds,” she wrote in a June 2009 memo. “Disbursements to the candidate should … be vetted before submission.” Now, prosecutors are seeking to use that memo, Montgomery’s testimony, and other exhibits from Williams’ past against him at his trial next month on federal bribery and campaign finance fraud charges.
