Shout out to the Mercer Bears for upsetting Delaware last night. UMass Lowell also came up big against Providence last night as well. You can find The Kid Chris’ post with recaps, stars of the day, and highlights from yesterday’s action here.

The Virginia Cavaliers survived an upset threat from the Manhattan Jaspers tonight. You might need to reread that sentence a few times. Virginia didn’t look too good, but they managed a win.

Big upset in D3 as the (unranked) Coast Guard upset #2 Wesleyan in OT last night.

Here’s a good post by Edward Lee of the Balimore Sun talking with JHU’s Hunter Moreland.

Having won 64.1 percent of his faceoffs (59 of 92) thus far, Johns Hopkins senior Hunter Moreland ranks 10th in Division I in faceoff percentage (64.1). The White Hall resident and Boys’ Latin graduate also ranks eighth in the nation with 8.5 ground balls per game. Moreland talked after the No. 17 Blue Jays’ 16-9 victory over then-No. 20 Princeton on Saturday, in which he set career highs in both faceoff wins (20) and ground balls (14).

Hunter, can you just talk about your performance tonight? I believe career highs in both faceoff wins and ground balls — how meaningful is that for you?

I mean, wins are kind of more important than the stats for us. But it feels great to go out and help the team out. We were getting plenty of shots in the beginning, but they weren’t falling. But we were getting stops, and I was convinced that if we keep getting possessions, the shots would finally fall. So it was great to have a good win tonight. We needed to get back at it, and it was good to help the team out.

Our man Jim wrote a nice piece for Troy Nunes sifting through the fall out from Syracuse’s win over UVA last weekend.

As the final horn sounded Sunday to close out a fantastic, last minute win for the Syracuse Orange, flags flew and bodies were shoved on both sides. As the seconds wained down, Virginia Cavaliers goalie Alex Rode caught a pass around the goal line. As Rode caught the pass and wound up to throw it down field Nate Solomon ran towards him from the restraining line full speed and hit Rode approximately a second after time expired. Virginia’s Zach Ambrosino apparently gave Solomon a shove and both teams got involved. Both Ambrosino and Solomon were ejected for the antics and both will be suspended for their team’s next game barring the NCAA overturning its own rule.

Uganda Lacrosse has got some big dreams and they are making those dreams happen step by step.

Women’s lacrosse in Uganda presents a unique story of resilience. Caught often in the shadow of the men, the women are determined to offset this background. With the help of Uganda Lacrosse Foundation an NGO based in the United States, the girls are chasing a dream appearance at the U-19 Girls’ World Championships next year in Canada. The association has set in motion preparations for the highly-billed event and in so doing, eight girls’ schools are getting ready for the Uganda Lacrosse Girls Championship on March 24. “We want to start early enough. The foundation is ready to assist and nonetheless we continue to seek local sponsorship,” said Liberty Twesiime, Uganda Lacrosse publicist.

Tell our people to tool up: Proposed WCSD policy would bar club sports like lacrosse from using school names, mascots.

The use of specific school names and mascots by club athletic programs could soon be banned by the Washoe County School District. The proposed regulation, couched in the district’s facility use policy, would automatically deny the application of clubs wishing to use district facilities or fields if their named matched a school, used a school mascot or potentially used the same colors as the school. The proposed policy revision, which was discussed at the school board’s Tuesday policy meeting, is specifically aimed at the growing number of unsanctioned club sports teams that associate with schools, such as lacrosse teams. It’s the latest in the district’s attempt to distance itself from unsanctioned activities over liability concerns.

What’s Up, PhilaJersey?

Winter Storm Quinn is going to be a doozy.

The Philadelphia region is feeling the effects of the second nor’easter to roar up the coast in less than a week. Depending on where you are it is snowing (north and west of the city), snowing and raining (the immediate Philadelphia area) or raining (South Jersey east of the Turnpike). The storm is expected to intensify later this morning and into the afternoon. The latest computers have increased projected snow accumulations to 8-12 inches in Eastern Pennsylvania and 4-6 inches in South Jersey. Schools, government offices, courts and cultural institutions have closed around the region. Utilities are bracing for another round of power outages. Here is the latest you need to know.

World/National News.

At this point, what App isn’t creepily following you: MoviePass CEO creepily admits the company ‘watches’ where you go before and after a movie.

Remember that Netflix-of-cinemas service that lets you watch as many movies as you want each month for the low price of $8 to $10 per month? Well, it turns out MoviePass has a built-in location tracking service that’s incredibly creepy. “We get an enormous amount of information,” Mitch Lowe said in an interview. “We watch how you drive from home to the movies. We watch where you go afterwards.” Is it worth trading your data for watching movies on the cheap?

As TechCrunch explains, these advanced location tracking features aren’t included in the company’s privacy policy. Instead, it mentions a “single request” when you select a theater, which will be used “only be used as a means to develop, improve, and personalize the service.” What’s puzzling is that Lowe talked so candidly about location tracking. He made his remarks during a keynote at the Entertainment Finance Forum last week, MediaPlayNews explains. The presentation was titled Data is the New Oil: How Will MoviePass Monetize It?.
