We have 27 games today, so get ready for another hectic Saturday. (Georgetown vs. Hofstra was just postponed to a date to be determined later.) There have been many schedule changes due to the weather Friday night. I’ve tried to correct all the start times, but if you see any errors, please let us know in the comments and I’ll update the Big Board accordingly.

College Crosse Big Board For March 3, 2018.
Senior midfielder Charlie Hayes tallied a career-high six caused turnovers with six ground balls and redshirt freshman Logan Shamblin made 14 saves as the University of Detroit Mercy men’s lacrosse team bested Bellarmine, 11-5, on Friday afternoon. It was the first game of the Midwest Classic, hosted by Detroit Mercy at Wisner Stadium. The six turnovers by Hayes were the most by a Titan since Jamie Hebden set a school record with seven against VMI in 2013. The 14 saves by Shamblin were a season-high for the rookie netminder as he posted double-digit saves for the third time this year.
John Wagner scored with 1:18 remaining in overtime to push the No. 18/19 Marquette University men’s lacrosse team past No. 4/6 Ohio State, 8-7, on Friday evening in the Midwest Lacrosse Classic at Wisner Stadium in Pontiac, Michigan. Wagner’s right-handed heroics lifted the Golden Eagles to a perfect 3-0 mark on the season and 4-9 all-time against top-five opponents in the USILA top-20 poll. It also pushes MU’s record in one-goal games to 18-6 and to 32-1 when entering the fourth quarter with the lead. The Golden Eagles (3-0) led by two goals, 7-5, entering the fourth quarter, but the Buckeyes were able to tie things midway through the final frame with the fourth’s only goals. MU had the ball with under 30 seconds left in regulation but was unable to get off a final shot.
Shout out to the Sun Devils as they prepare for their first-ever home game.
Duke has returned home and is ready to return to form. The Blue Devils will host Richmond Saturday at 1 p.m. at Koskinen Stadium. Duke is coming off its first loss of the season to Pennsylvania and is looking to avoid back-to-back losses for the first time since the 2015 season, when it lost three in a row in April.
“We are no longer number one,” Blue Devil head coach John Danowski said. “Not that we believed that anyway, but I think it is a blessing for this group. Let’s just forget about all that noise and let’s just play.” The Spiders (2-2) bring a lot of familiarity to Durham, as head coach Dan Chimotti led Duke as a captain in his senior season in 2002. Last year, Duke edged Richmond 9-8. The Blue Devils scored three goals in a 51-second span to finish off the Spiders. In 2016, Richmond came into Koskinen and upset the Blue Devils in overtime. Although Chimotti’s squad is unranked this spring, the Spiders lost in the Southern Conference Championship Game last spring and bring immense returning talent into Durham this weekend.
A former standout lacrosse player has sued Westminster College, saying it placed more value on the privacy of a male student who had sexually assaulted her than on her safety. According to the lawsuit, the college violated a restraining order and federal Title IX regulations by housing Kennedy Flavin within 100 feet of the man who’d sexually assaulted her in high school, when they were both minors. The school then refused to move his dorm or make other arrangements to protect Flavin. Title IX charges universities with ensuring students receive education without sex-based discrimination.
The West Virginia University lacrosse team is just coming off a successful trip to Texas, winning the inaugural Big 12 Classic, and now opens SELC play at 20th-ranked Liberty on Saturday. The Mountaineers (2-1) were thumped 24-1 by the Flames in Martinsburg last season, but this year’s team isn’t even think about last year. “It sucked losing to them 24-1, but we’re a totally new team,” junior midfielder Paul Beljan said. “I think we have three kids back from last year that were actually out there all the time.” West Virginia went into last week’s Big 12 Classic with the plan of using the weekend finale against Oklahoma as the litmus test for Liberty. The Mountaineers lost 15-6.
Fernandez stands a modest 5-foot-7 and weighs 158 pounds. He must make up for with hustle and irritation what he lacks in stature.
”I would kind of describe myself as a pest, and kind of ferocious, I guess you could say. Kind of all over the place. Really just trying to do my job on the field and fill in. Just competing out there,’’ he said. “I’ve always been kind of a shorter guy. So for me, just being able to be a little bit more aggressive and getting on people’s hands, kind of annoying them, I guess you could say, that’s something I like to do on the field. Sometimes people overlook you.’’
Roy Simmons III has, for the most part, stopped tearing up over the play now. And that’s good, since nearly a week has passed since his son, Ryan, scored the game-winning goal for Syracuse against Army in the third overtime Saturday in the Carrier Dome. Simmons III, the Orange’s lacrosse director of operations, sees that as a reasonable timeline of recovery for the emotion of the moment. He wells up quite easily when discussing how proud he is of his son, especially when it comes to lacrosse and his dignity in carrying on one of the most storied names in the sport. “I’m really emotional about him anyway, no matter what happens. He hasn’t had a lot of playing time over his years here,’’ Simmons III said. “And I’ve always felt like maybe a little more opportunity here and there would be a great thing. So any time he does anything, I get really...I’m just like my father.’’
Lauletta has widely been described as Patriots head coach Bill Belichick’s perfect quarterback since the Pro Football Weekly’s Eric Edholm first made the connections. Lauletta’s father, Joe, and uncle, Lex, both played football at Navy, where Belichick’s father, Steve, coached. Belichick adores the academy. Kyle played lacrosse, Belichick’s second love, in high school and probably could have played Division 1 in college too if not for his love of football. So how and why did this all come together? The Laulettas caught the football and lacrosse bug from Kyle’s grandfather, Joe, who played football at the University of Delaware. He went on to coach football at Tufts and West Chester University. He also coached lacrosse despite never playing the sport.
What’s Up, PhilaJersey?
Maybe it’s just what happens in March, or maybe it’s one of the most bizarre snow/windstorms ever to hit Philly. Either way, it’s ugly out there right now. SEPTA is experiencing delays. Amtrak has halted all service along the Northeast Corridor. The Philadelphia International Airport is reporting flight cancellations. And a tree has fallen on a SEPTA bus on I-76 near Belmont Ave. Needless to say, you should probably be thinking about your afternoon commute.
A new study published in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology posits there’s a good chance you can tell if someone is rich or poor just by looking at them. “The relationship between well-being and social class has been demonstrated by previous research,” R. Thora Bjornsdottir, a graduate student at the University of Toronto and co-author of the study, tells CNBC Make It. In general, people with money tend to live happier, less anxious lives compared to those struggling to make ends meet. She and her team demonstrated “that these well-being differences are actually reflected in people’s faces.”
Bjornsdottir and her co-author, psychology professor Nicholas O. Rule, had undergraduate subjects of various ethnicities look at gray-scale photographs of 80 white males and 80 white females. None showed any tattoos or piercings. Half of the photos were of people who made over $150,000 a year, which they designated as upper class, and the other half were people who made under $35,000, or working class.
