On Saturday, Feb. 23, SHU will host Fairfield University in the first-ever matchup between the two crosstown rivals. The game will also serve as the team’s Heart-to-Heart game.

Here’s another great pod by Bloomberg’s Scott Soshnick that touches on the NLL’s new labor deal. Lax talk begins at 8:10.
Scott Soshnick, Michael Barr and Eben Novy-Williams discuss a host of issues related to the business of sports ... Also discussed on the podcast is the new labor contract between the National Lacrosse League and its players, and whether it’s actually a good thing for the future of the league and sport.

#AnotherOne: Hanover graduate brings lacrosse to Florida school.
The sport of lacrosse has grown immensely in the northeastern United States over the last several decades, and has become a staple of spring high school sports throughout the region. It’s caught on slower in other parts of the country, including football hotbeds such as Florida.
Hanover High graduate and current Fort Lauderdale, Fla. resident Matt Salvatoriello said he feels like he’s getting in at the ground level.
Salvatoriello, a 1993 Hanover alumnus and former Marauders attackman, was named program director and boys lacrosse head coach at Fort Lauderdale’s Westminster Academy earlier this month. He is tasked with organizing the school’s first lacrosse program from scratch. He previously worked as a assistant football coach for the school. A chance to build something, though, was too good to pass up.
Good to see the lads at Mount St. Mary’s, Army, & Ohio State working off all that food from Thanksgiving weekend.
Former Mercer Bears lacrosse player Josh Williamson is making some noise in the bobsledding world.
Josh Williamson first learned about the sport of bobsled through following two-time Olympic medalist Steven Langton on social media.
Williamson saw how much weight Langton could lift and how powerful he was when pushing a bobsled before jumping into it and sliding down an icy track at 90 miles per hour.
But when Williamson, a former lacrosse player from Lake Mary, Florida, applied for a U.S. Olympic Committee program called Scouting Camp: The Next Olympic Hopeful last year, he didn’t have high expectations.
“I knew I was a good athlete after competing in college, but I really didn’t know what I’d be good at,” said Williamson, who went to his local 24 Hour Fitness for a “combine” test and submitted his Next Olympic Hopeful application. At scouting camp, “They kind of tell you what they think you have the build for, they tell you what athletically you might be successful in. Coming from Florida, I didn’t really know bobsled was an option.”

Here’s NJIT with a little 3v2 competition.
US Lacrosse with a good article about why Pensacola, FL could be the next big lacrosse hotbed.
Football and baseball reign supreme on Florida’s Gulf Coast, especially in and around the Pensacola area.
But starting about six years ago, Cassandra Waller, who oversees the physical education curriculum for Escambia County Public Schools, started to hear rumblings of another sport in her community — lacrosse.
More and more youth programs, like the Pensacola Knights and Gulf Breeze, popped up and children were increasingly becoming interested in the stick-and-ball game.
“I started to notice an upward trend in lacrosse in our community,” Waller said. “Not in our school district, but our community. I was like ‘Wow, this is really picking up a lot of headway.”
What’s Up, PhilaJersey?
Not like this, Philly: Sixers fans start a petition to ban Kendall Jenner from home games.
Parked court-side at the Wells Fargo Center on Friday was none other than Kendall Jenner, sporting a casual, fuzzy black sweater. At first, people were kind of excited. A celebrity! Among us! In Philadelphia! Dating Ben Simmons, maybe! Then it happened. Simmons and the rest of the Sixers suffered an embarrassing defeat to the other shameful Cleveland Cavaliers, and the team lost its perfect home record.
So here we are: Kendall Jenner shows up to just one Sixers game at the Wells Fargo Center this season, and it happens to be a big flop. Of course, fans are blaming her: They’re circulating a change.org petition to ban Jenner from the Wells Fargo Center.
Woof. The new Robin Hood movie was a massive dud.
Lionsgate’s “Robin Hood” is turning out to be this year’s biggest blockbuster bomb, with a $14 million five-day opening against a budget of just under $100 million.
This year’s Thanksgiving weekend has provided the most lucrative box office ever. But even with all the record-breaking success, there have been some failures in 2018. Most of those bombs, like Paramount’s “Annihilation” and Fox’s “The Darkest Minds,” have had low-to-mid-level budgets that have reduced how much of a financial hit their studios have taken.
