One game today, but it is a big one, as Notre Dame will be facing off against Michigan in a fantastic #HappyHour match-up that begins at 4:00. The game will be on the ACC Network Extra and here’s the Live Stats page.
Notre Dame Fighting Irish mens’ lacrosse (#4, 4-1, 1-0 ACC) host the Michigan Wolverines (NR, 5-2, 0-0 B1G), Wednesday at 4:00 pm, WatchESPN. This is the third meeting between the two teams, with the Irish winning 16-5 at home last year, and 17-8 in Ann Arbor in 2015. The Wolverines haven’t played the meat of their schedule, but have a quality win against Marquette against loses to Penn and Yale. Tall Canadian midfielder, Brent Noseworthy is a very good player and leads their offense with 22 goals and 4 assists, shooting at 46%. Kevin Mack, a freshman from Long Island, is having a great start to his Michigan career with 13 goals and 13 assists. We also like watching Nick DeCaprio on their defense.
Oh my. Where do we begin? Well, I had BU winning already penciled into the scoreboard, but Harvard had to make things difficult. Down six with 7:06 left in the game, the Crimson managed to score six unanswered goals, including four straight from Kyle Anderson. Morgan Cheek scored the game-winner just a minute into the extra session, which was one of a program record 13 points on the night (five goals, eight assists). Anderson had a career-high day in goals (seven) and points (eight), and so did Joe Lang, who had nine points (four goals, five assists). Overall, the three set a program record for points in a game by an attacking trio with 30. Steven Cuccurullo went 20-of-36 from the face-off X with 13 ground balls.
It was the Morgan Cheek show last night.
Of course there was a Whitney.
Good news, we have a #WhitneyInOT. Bad news (for Marisa), it came against BU, their first ever Whitney loss. STAND UP, MORGAN CHEEK AND @HarvardMLax after a HUGE comeback against the Terriers. (Video from @IvyLeagueNet) pic.twitter.com/ZPYtjWmPxb— Chris Jastrzembski (@CFJastrzembski) March 21, 2018

Loyola Maryland’s men’s and women’s lacrosse games at Georgetown Wednesday have been postponed, because of the forecast for snow lasting Tuesday through Wednesday evening and possibly accumulating four to eight inches. Also, the Maryland women’s game at Penn scheduled for Wednesday night has been postponed until Thursday, because the snow forecast includes Philadelphia.
Pat Spencer just keeps on rewriting the Loyola men’s lacrosse record books. The Boys Latin School grad and Davidsonville native set a new Division I single-game program record on Saturday when he scored 12 points (four goals and eight assists) in the Greyhounds win over Navy. “It’s an honor. It’s cool. But 12 points is what it was for that day,” said the Loyola attackman. “If another day it’s two points, zero points, whatever it is, as long as we’re getting the win. I really wasn’t looking to get the ball on every possession. Just taking what the defense gave us in the game.”
Canisius owned a 4-1 lead against No. 1 ranked Albany Tuesday afternoon. Then Connor Fields went to work, leading the Great Danes to 16 unanswered goals over 29 minutes in a rout of the Golden Griffins. When it was over the Great Danes (7-0) owned a 19-11 victory over the Griffins (3-3) at Casey Stadium in Albany. Fields, a senior attack from East Amherst who is a former Bishop Timon-St.Jude standout, ignited the Albany rally. He scored three goals including the go-ahead tally with 58 seconds left in the period giving the Great Danes a 5-4 lead after one quarter.
Stand up, Tempe, Arizona!!
What’s Up, PhilaJersey?
Winter might technically be over, but spring has not sprung, and the snowstorm headed our way will bury any buds that thought they were going to get an early start to the season. Forecasters with the National Weather Service say the impending Winter Storm Toby could be one of the 10 worst storm events in Philadelphia’s history. The nor’easter is expected to bring between 7 to 13 inches of snow on Wednesday, as well as ice accumulations and wind gusts of 25 to 40 mph.
The NWS warns that travel will be very difficult to impossible on Wednesday. Power outages and tree damage are expected. Here’s what you need to know about public transportation, school closures and more ahead of the snowstorm.
