Lots of transfer news to catch up before the July 4th weekend began.
Lacrosse The Nation
Last night were the Under Armour All-America games. Here are some of the best highlights from the Boys game:
Bryn Evans (@HarvardLacrosse) hits opposite upper 90 with the left hand. Whole team joins the celebration. pic.twitter.com/J46Y3mzVk6— Inside Lacrosse (@Inside_Lacrosse) July 2, 2017
Lucas Quinn (@CuseMLAX) with a sweet shake-n-bake and right handed score from range. 2-2 #UAALLAMERICA pic.twitter.com/i6oHTN8520— Inside Lacrosse (@Inside_Lacrosse) July 2, 2017
Quinn went to Niskayuna. A fellow Cuse player who went to the same high school and wears the same number as the incoming freshman chimed in too.

Coming to Charlottesville soon! Matt Moore (@UVAMensLacrosse) scores near pipe with the defender screening the goalie. 3-2 South. pic.twitter.com/8y9Yrx68Vd— Inside Lacrosse (@Inside_Lacrosse) July 2, 2017

Alex Trippi (@UNCMensLacrosse) with the "Terrell Owens" celebration, signing the ball after a garbage goal. The disrespect! pic.twitter.com/asmmSPwozP— Dan Aburn (@danaburn2423) July 2, 2017
Bubba Fairman (@TerpsMLax) pretty much dodging through everyone on his way to the score. 5-4 south at the end of the first #UAALLAMERICA pic.twitter.com/VTEfrNsIsJ— Inside Lacrosse (@Inside_Lacrosse) July 2, 2017

Probably the best goal of the night backed with an excellent celebration:

The MVP was a Johns Hopkins commit.

One final note: I didn’t watch the game (going to later this morning or in the afternoon) because I had to work overnight. But this was an interesting tidbit.
If you're complaining about 1) the celebrations 2) lack of defense .... It's an all-star game. What did you expect?!— Ty Xanders (@tyxanders) July 2, 2017
The second comment I expected because any all-star game pretty much means little to no defense played. In any sport.
But the first one got a lot of attention. I for one enjoyed the celebrations. I wouldn’t be shocked if each team had a walkthrough of their celebrations after their actual walkthroughs this past week. The entire team celly, the bike, the Terrell Owens, and then the RKO...from outta nowhere!
Obviously in games that matter, nearly all of these cellys are going to get unsportsmanlike penalties and coaches will get furious. Let the young adults have fun! They’re at this event because, outside of being picked by IL, they worked hard their past four years in high school and earned the honor. They’re buddying up with club teammates, future collegiate teammates, and getting to know each other altogether. Every all-star game has fun in some way, and in this version, fun is having very thought out celebrations.
You can check out recaps from The Baltimore Sun as well. The boys is here, while a recap of the girls is here.

The Delaware Blue Hens have made their assistant head coaching hires official. It’s fun to predict how teams might be next year, even if we’re seven months away from the start of the season:

Looks like the Philadelphia 76ers will lock up J.J. Redick and Amir Johnson to one-year deals!
In a huge shock, Jeff Horn upset Manny Pacquiao and a lot of people weren’t happy about it.
