I couldn’t find the Live Stats link for several of today’s games, but I will fill in the spreadsheet if/when more become available.

Robert Morris took care of business versus Bellarmine yesterday.

Robert Morris got its first win of the season today, thanks in large part to a 12 goal explosion in the second and third quarter of the game. RMU had 10 players record at least one goal on the day, and their defense held the Knights to only two first half goals.

We’re truly blessed that Art Ryan is back.

Here’s a great Maryland hype video.

Quinnipiac vs. UMass Lowell has been moved to Sunday.

Here’s a nice article about Duke’s Justin Guterding from Newsday.

Justin Guterding has stood and cheered with Duke’s Cameron Crazies. “I’m a huge basketball fan and that’s quite an experience,” he said with a laugh. But that’s not why the former Garden City lacrosse star chose to attend the elite university located in Durham, North Carolina.

“I came here to win a national championship” Guterding said. “That’s the only thing I really care about.”

That’s no bull. Venerable coach John Danowski calls it “the white elephant in the room.” Guterding’s senior class is the first at Duke since 2004 not to have reached the sport’s Final Four on Memorial Day weekend at least once.

“I thought I might win a few national championships, but obviously now I only have a chance to win one,” Guterding said. “I’ll be quite upset if I don’t win any.”

NEXT UP!!

Tomorrow. #NextUp

A post shared by Binghamton Men's Lacrosse (@binghamtonmlax) on

Here’s a game preview of today’s UVA vs. Loyola game.

Syracuse is jumping right into the deep end this year after their truncated fall ball.

One of Syracuse lacrosse coach John Desko’s points of emphasis this season was upgrading his team’s schedule.

”In past years we’d talked about strength of schedule and RPI,’’ Desko said Thursday. “I know the playoffs are a long ways away but when you add (tougher teams), on the schedule, it’s going to automatically bump up your strength of schedule and your RPI.’’

So newcomers Navy and Rutgers were sprinkled onto the list of 2018 foes. But that meant other opponents had to go, including a very important warmup act: Siena.

The Orange played Siena in the season opener each of the past four seasons, winning by scores of 19-6, 18-5, 21-7 and 19-7. But Syracuse no longer has that buffer, and instead jumps right into an unforgiving schedule on Saturday when Binghamton visits the Carrier Dome at 1 p.m.

The Orange is 6-0 all-time against Binghamton but the Bearcats are a serious upgrade over Siena. Syracuse barely managed to escape with a 9-8 win over Binghamton last year.

Here’s BOSS Desko previewing Binghamton.

BU’s ready for their B1G Ohio State test today.

The No. 20 Boston University men’s lacrosse team will travel to Columbus, Ohio this Saturday to take on No. 7 Ohio State University.

Coming off a thrilling 12-11 overtime victory against Providence College at home, the Terriers (1-0) are looking to win their first road game against the Buckeyes (1-0).

“ … There are a lot of positives from Saturday,” BU head coach Ryan Polley said. “I think we beat a really strong team who I think will have a really good season.”

The Terriers graduated their first senior class last year, who propelled the team to its first ever Patriot League tournament berth. Additionally, BU’s progression was so swift that it sent two players, attack Cal Dearth and defenseman Dominick Calisto, into the Major League Lacrosse.

This year, in the fifth season of the program, the Terriers have welcomed a large number of fresh faces. As such, veteran players like senior attack Jack Wilson and senior midfielder and faceoff specialist Joe Stucky will be relied upon to provide some direction.

Brown is scrimmaging the Boston Cannons today.

The Brown University men’s lacrosse team will close out its exhibition season with a scrimmage game against Major League Lacrosse’s Boston Cannons at Stevenson-Pincince Field.

Brown is ranked #18 in the country in the USILA poll. The game will mark the professional coaching debut of Cannon’s assistant coach Dom Starsia. Game time is set for Sunday, February 11 at 11 a.m.

About Starsia

Starsia became Brown’s head lacrosse coach in 1982 and compiled a 10-year record of 101-46. He took the Bears to the NCAA playoffs in five of his last six years, including the last three.

The Bears won two Ivy League titles (1985 and 1991) and advanced to the NCAA quarterfinals three consecutive seasons (1990-92). Starsia led them to their first-ever undefeated regular season (13-0).

They also won the Ivy League title and the New England Championship, and finished with a No. 2 national ranking. Starsia received his first two Morris Touchstone Award as the Division I Coach of the Year in 1985 and 1991 while at Brown.

Starsia left Brown for the University of Virginia in 1993.

Shout out to Arizona State women’s lacrosse team as they got their first win in program history.

After a long process of formation and practice, ASU women’s lacrosse finally played in its first NCAA Division I game on Friday. Junior attack Kerri Clayton’s seven goal performance boosted the Sun Devils over the Kennesaw State Owls 14-6. The Sun Devils never trailed throughout the entirety of the game. “My teammates did a really awesome job of finding me because the defense wasn’t adjusting the way they should have been,” Clayton said. “When they did make adjustments they slide for the double and I was able to find my teammates and it was awesome.”

I’m feeling this JMU hype video.

What’s Up, PhilaJersey?

Everyone’s still talking about the Eagles parade on Thursday.

Well, Philadelphia, we did it. We finally won the Super Bowl. And we finally had a Super Bowl parade. Here’s the report card.

The Police: A+

Once again, the Philadelphia Police Department comes through in a big way. Faced with massive crowds, some rowdy drunken types, people standing on top of all sorts of things that they shouldn’t have been standing on top of, and no shortage of 911 calls to deal with, our police dealt with it all in a way that would put most police departments in the country to shame. Shout out to all first responders.

The Team: A+

We love this Eagles team, and they brought their best to the Super Bowl parade. From Doug Pederson catching a beer one-handed to that amazing Jason Kelce speech, there was plenty to love. (And, let’s be frank: Kelce could have won all of this singlehandedly.)

World/National News.

This sounds like the plot of the next Bond movie.

The suspects had tried to use one of Russia’s most powerful supercomputers to mine Bitcoins, media reports say. The Federal Nuclear Centre in Sarov, western Russia, is a restricted area.

The centre’s press service said: “There has been an unsanctioned attempt to use computer facilities for private purposes including so-called mining.”

The supercomputer was not supposed to be connected to the internet - to prevent intrusion - and once the scientists attempted to do so, the nuclear centre’s security department was alerted. They were handed over to the Federal Security Service (FSB), the Russian news service Mash says.

”As far as we are aware, a criminal case has been launched against them,” the press service told Interfax news agency.
