GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOD MORNING, College Crosse Nation!! Thanks for making us a part of your day! Here are your links for March 28, 2018.

College Crosse News.

One game on tap for today and it is Harvard vs. Albany. The game begins at 7:00 at Casey Stadium in Albany, NY, so we get some #PrimeTimeLacrosse tonight, which should be great. The game stream will be free, courtesy of America East TV, and the link can be found here. You can find the Live Stats page for the game here.

Here’s a video of Coach Scott Marr, goalkeeper JD Colarusso and attackman Connor Fields talking about the Harvard game tonight.

As anyone who reads the site knows, Virginia Tech’s women’s lacrosse team got in some hot water recently. It was an extremely unfortunate incident, one that I am sure all parties involved would like a redo on. On top of everything, the story has now gone viral. Indeed, Deadspin, TMZ. the New York Post, Inside Higher ED, and Sports Illustrated all did at least one article on the situation. Even the Daily Mail got into the act and did a post on it as well, so it’s officially an international story now.

The team has issued a statement and apologized for the situation. Hopefully this incident will teach everyone a valuable lesson: If you’re gonna celebrate on the bus after a big win, just go with a compilation of 90s/early 2000s RnB hits. Imagine if was just a video of them singing Creep (you know, because they are creeping up the polls) or No Scrubs by TLC, we’d be having an entirely different Wednesday now, wouldn’t we? CALL US, D1 Lacrosse teams! We’re excellent consultants.

Check out Chris’ recap of all the action from yesterday.

Game Recaps
Cornell 23, Air Force 5: It was a blowout in the purest form. The game was basically over in the first quarter, with the Big Red already up 8-1. The Big Red were on track to score 32 goals in the game, but settled instead for 23. It was the most they scored in 20 years en route to the program’s 750th all-time win. Jeff Teat did Jeff Teat things with three goals and four assists and also caused two caused turnovers, while Clarke Petterson, Colton Rupp, and John Piatelli also recorded hat-tricks in the victory. Goalie Christian Knight did not play, but sophomore Caelahn Bullen played three quarters and made six saves while giving up four goals. The Big Red Machine rolls on.

No big deal, but I got a sweet Hop jacket and a Hopkins helmet signed by LORD PETRO last night. Don’t make a whole thing out of it.

I see you Wake Forest.

The party’s just begun for Albany.

March Madness has a completely different connotation for the University at Albany’s men’s lacrosse coach Scott Marr. It has nothing to do with the Final Four in San Antonio, but what the Great Danes already have accomplished: The No. 1 ranking in the nation, a first in school history for any men’s or women’s sport (for the fifth consecutive week, at 8-0, they are the only undefeated team in Division I), and a legitimate shot at a national championship in late May at Gillette Stadium.

Wednesday night’s game against 19th-ranked Harvard (7-1) and a battle against American East rival Stony Brook on Saturday, both at friendly Casey Stadium, stand in the way of a perfect March.

April could serve as the bridge to nirvana for the SUNY school.

“I hope it’s May Madness, but we have a long way to go,” Marr warned.

Nevertheless, this month has offered up some glimpses of grandeur — none bigger than an improbable 11-10 comeback road win against defending-champion (and nemesis) Maryland on March 10. A portent of things to come?

Evgeny Kuznetsov on his lacrosse goal attempt: “When I get that move, I get so excited I forget about the finish.”

With a four-goal lead in the second period, Evgeny Kuznetsov got creative. Left alone behind the net, Kuznetsov noticed goaltender Ondrej Pavelec was not guarding the top corner of the twine. Kuznetsov picked the puck up with the blade of his stick and tried to score a lacrosse goal. He ultimately failed, but that’s not going to stop him from trying again.

“It’s just part of hockey. I just have fun. I feel like in that moment I can do it, that I can try that move,” Kuznetsov said after the Capitals practice on Tuesday. “I’m glad I didn’t score so I can try one more time.” Kuznetsov mentioned that it’s not often you have the time and space to try a move like that. “I don’t have a plan before the game to do that, but I don’t think you can plan to do that before a game. It’s not that easy.”

What’s Up, PhilaJersey?

Just when I’m about to move back to the Garden State: So, yeah, N.J. is in the path of a Chinese space station about to come crashing to Earth.

A 9.4-ton Chinese space station will soon begin falling to Earth and New Jersey is part of a swath of the planet where debris from the space craft could land. And it could happen on April Fool’s Day, which is also Easter this year.

An analysis by the non-profit Aerospace Corporation shows that the Tiangong-1, the first space station built and launched by China, is predicted to reenter the planet’s atmosphere on April Fool’s Day/Easter, plus or minus 36 hours.

It has been orbiting uncontrolled since at least June 2016.

The analysis shows that the station will reenter somewhere between 43 degrees North and 43 degrees South latitudes, placing it in a band between north California and New Jersey, as well as southern sections of Europe and much of China and Japan.

World/National News.

Mark Zuckerberg’s shook: Mark Zuckerberg Refuses to Testify in the U.K. Over Facebook’s Cambridge Analytica Scandal.

Mark Zuckerberg will not testify before British parliamentarians about Facebook’s role in the Cambridge Analytica scandal, the company has announced.

Parliament’s digital, culture, media and sport (DCMS) committee asked Zuckerberg a week ago to show up to give oral evidence. In a letter, committee chair Damian Collins said Facebook officials had previously misled the lawmakers about risks in the site’s data-sharing practices, and said it was “now time to hear from a senior Facebook executive with the sufficient authority to give an accurate account of this catastrophic failure of process.”

“Given your commitment at the start of the New Year to ‘fixing’ Facebook, I hope that this representative will be you,” Collins wrote.

However, on Tuesday Facebook told the committee that “Mr Zuckerberg has personally asked one of his deputies to make themselves available to give evidence in person.”
