College Crosse News.

Michigan was too much for Air Force yesterday.

The University of Michigan men’s lacrosse team overcame a pair of three-goal deficits en route to a 14-9 victory over the Air Force Falcons on Friday (March 9) at U-M Lacrosse Stadium. Senior midfielder Chase Young had a career-best four points (three goals, one assist) and freshman Kevin Mack had a game-high five points (3G, 2A) to lead the offense. The Air Force Falcons (1-5) scored three goals in the first quarter, while Michigan (4-2) was held scoreless for the duration of the period.

Shout out to Jordie from Barstool Sports for his great pod with Joel Tinney!!

Numbers carry a certain weight in sports, especially when it comes to the ones stitched onto jerseys. The number 23 will forever be associated with former Chicago Bull and Hall of Fame basketball superstar Michael Jordan. Former Brooklyn Dodger and Hall of Fame baseball pioneer Jackie Robinson’s No. 42 is so revered that Major League Baseball retired it in 1997. And former Edmonton Oiler and Hall of Fame great Wayne Gretzky’s iconic 99 jersey got similar treatment in 2000 from the National Hockey League. The No. 1 jersey for the Maryland men’s lacrosse team has not reached that stratosphere yet, but it has begun to build a certain legacy thanks to the recent series of players who wore it.

Chris and I did a podcast last night for the Hopkins vs. Syracuse game.

Brother to brother connection at Maryland: Will Snider used his brother’s example to increase his role with Maryland lacrosse.

Even though Maryland men’s lacrosse midfielder Will Snider only appeared in six games in his first two years in College Park, he knew there could be opportunities to expand his role as a junior.

His older brother, Drew Snider, became a key member of the Terps attack in 2011 after enduring a similar struggle to break into the first team as an underclassman. Will Snider gained confidence after watching his sibling progress from a backup without a strong grasp of coach John Tillman’s system to a valuable veteran.

This year, Snider replicated his brother’s path by parlaying hard work on the scout team and extra film sessions into an increased role. He drew praise from Tillman for his performance last weekend against then-No. 8 Notre Dame, and he hopes to continue to impress when the No. 2 Terps host No. 1 Albany on Saturday.

No denying the hype: No. 1 UAlbany men’s lacrosse ready for No. 2 Maryland

When it comes to Saturday’s noon meeting between the University at Albany men’s lacrosse team and Maryland, pick your own storyline. It’s No. 1 vs. No. 2. It’s a rematch of a 2017 NCAA tournament game. It’s the upstart Great Danes traveling to take on a blueblood program doubling as the reigning national champion. UAlbany head coach Scott Marr? He picks all of the above.

Told his players to do the same, too, before their trip to College Park. “Embrace it, and have fun,” Marr said. “Be loose. Enjoy it.” That’s No. 1 UAlbany’s style, anyway. No reason to change it now. “This entire week’s been a blast,” UAlbany freshman Tehoka Nanticoke said Friday. “We’re just trying to play loose and play Albany lacrosse,” UAlbany senior Connor Fields said.

Blessed.

Princeton and Rutgers go at it for the 96th time today.

For the 96th time in history, the Rutgers men’s lacrosse team will take the field against Princeton, as the two teams will battle it out for the Meistrell Cup, named after Harland “Tots” Meistrell, who re-started the lacrosse programs at each school in the 1920s.

Last year’s contest was an important one for the Scarlet Knights, as their 16-11 triumph marked their first win in the series since 2005.

“The guys in the locker room are learning about the rivalry each year as we grow as a program,” said head coach Brian Brecht of what the rivalry meant to Rutgers. “I do think I’m reminded every day, every week, every year about how much this means to our alumni.”

Senior captain and midfielder Christian Mazzone scored in last year’s 16-11 win, to go along with 2 ground balls and 2 caused turnovers.

What’s Up, PhilaJersey?

It’s St. Patrick’s Day weekend here in Philly!

St. Patrick’s Day is right around the corner, and there are plenty of ways to celebrate in Philly. From family-friendly parades to the most, ahem, comprehensive bar crawls, here are our picks for what you should be doing to celebrate this traditional Irish holiday.

Philadelphia’s St. Patrick’s Day Parade

You don’t want to miss one of the oldest parades in the country, which goes around City Hall and down Market Street. There will be plenty of Irish music, Irish dancers and decorated floats. The theme for this year’s parade is “St. Patrick, bless those who respond to the call of the needy.”

World/National News.

Don’t ever say cats don’t do anything

A cat is credited with alerting residents of a fire that broke out Friday morning in McKeesport. Crews were called around 1:20 a.m. to a home in the 2000 block of Lamont Street. The fire began in the attic of the two-story home. The fire chief said the home didn’t have any working smoke detectors, but the people inside noticed the fire after the cat was acting strangely.
