GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOD MORNING, College Crosse Nation!! Thanks for making us a part of your day! Here are your links for March 30, 2018.

College Crosse News.

Two games today, Here are all the links you need for both games.

Carolina vs. Duke should be a great game today.

The Tar Heels are taking a trip down Tobacco Road this weekend, and the Blue Devils will be waiting for them. No. 5 Duke, fresh off a heartbreaking, rain-soaked loss to Syracuse, hosts North Carolina at Koskinen Stadium Friday at 5 p.m. The Tar Heels have lost four in a row after starting the season with six straight wins, but North Carolina still has a stable of playmakers that can make a difference in every area of the field. This is the Tar Heels’ first ACC game after losing to Maryland last week 11-7 in the Pacific Coast Lax Shootout.

Last April, Duke outscored North Carolina 7-1 in the second half to pull away for a 12-8 victory. The Tar Heels lead the overall series 41-32, but with four of the past five meetings decided by just one goal, Friday’s matchup could be a battle to the very end.

Check out some news and notes from our man Ed Lee of the Baltimore Sun: Johns Hopkins showing resolve.

Two of the No. 6 Johns Hopkins men’s lacrosse team’s biggest comebacks have come at the expense of Virginia. The Blue Jays overcame a six-goal deficit to defeat the Cavaliers, 18-17, in overtime March 25, 2017. They followed that by rallying from a seven-goal deficit to beat Virginia, 15-13, on Saturday. Coming back from deficits of 8-1 in the second quarter and 9-2 at halftime was a first for Johns Hopkins (6-2), and it offered positives and negatives for coach Dave Pietramala.

Shout out to Stan The Man from for the Denver Pios.

Ohio State vs. Penn State this weekend is a really important game for both squads.

After its nine regular-season wins and thrilling national championship appearance last season, this year’s Ohio State men’s lacrosse team has a lot to consider ahead of its upcoming Big Ten season. As the only Big Ten team with fewer than six wins, Ohio State (5-4) begins conference play at home Saturday when it meets Penn State (6-3) at 3 p.m. Saturday at Ohio Stadium. The Buckeyes have been unable to break their losing streak, which has reached three games after losses to Towson, No. 3 Denver and No. 7 Notre Dame. The losses mean the game against the Nittany Lions, who are on a two-game win streak, will be critical for Ohio State’s playoff chances given that there are just five games remaining. “At this point, in terms of wins in conferences, it’s huge,” Ohio State head coach Nick Myers said. “I think every one of these games feels like a playoff game in the sense that you know you’re competing and positioning yourself for postseason play and making that conference tournament. Only four of the 16 teams will make it, so every game has got to have a kind of a playoff feel to it, and it just starts at the first one.”

Another great Dr. Fred Opie pod: Host Fred Opie gets an update on the Uganda Lacrosse initiative from Matt Holman and Frank Kelly.

It’s officially a trend!!: Filip Forsberg tries to one-up Evgeny Kuznetsov, attempts lacrosse-style goal.

It looks like Evgeny Kuznetsov has started an end-of-season trend. Just days after Kuzy attempted to score a “Michigan” lacrosse goal, former Capital Filip Forsberg tried his hand at it against the Sharks.

Several players have attempted to pull off a Michigan goal and succeeded, but never in the NHL. Now, within three days, two NHL players have come very, very close to pulling it off.

BRING BACK EARLY RECRUITING!!!

What’s Up, PhilaJersey?

From a Phillies game to a marriage proposal.

Philadelphians definitely don’t shy away from creative marriage proposals. We’ve seen proposals spelled out on the Tower Theater marquee, written on a Post-It note, and even done in the middle of a snow storm. Today, we’re sharing the engagement of Luke Butler to Megon Ungar at Citizens Bank Park, home of our very own Phillies baseball team. The couple has a tradition of surprising each other with secret dates, and, as you’ll see from these photos by Jessica Flynn Photography, Luke pulled off the ultimate surprise for Megon earlier this month. When they’re not planning secret dates, Luke and Megon are huge baseball fans and love watching the Phillies play at Citizens Bank Park. (Baseball has always been a huge part of Megon’s life—her father took her to her first game when she was just four weeks old.) Since they spend so much time at the ballpark, Luke knew it was the perfect place to pop the question.

HAPPY GOOD FRIDAY!: They do Good Friday big in Indonesia.

Good Friday in pictures: Larantuka – the Catholic heart of Indonesia – is near Kupang in Flores, at the far east of the archipelago. An estimated 6,000 Catholic pilgrims visit for the religious festival of Semana Santa – a period that begins on Ash Wednesday and reaches its crescendo on Good Friday. The town boasts three religious statues that washed up on its shores in mysterious circumstances in the 1500s.
