Five games today, including the biggest lacrosse game in the history of lacrosse. That’s good! But the bad news is three of those five games (including the most talked about lacrosse game known to man) are behind paywalls. Sad!

Games To Watch
- Loyola @ Georgetown (3 PM): Originally scheduled for March 21, both teams have went on different paths as of late. It looked like both teams were going to be in the top 12 before the Hoyas fell to Drexel a few days before. That began a three-game losing streak that was snapped on Saturday against Providence. This would be a huge win for Daniel Bucaro and company, and they can certainly play with the best as we saw in the Denver game. Loyola comes off from a dominant road victory over Lehigh on Saturday and will look to continue their two-game winning streak against the Hoyas as the end of Patriot League play nears.
- Princeton @ Siena (3 PM): This will be the first time both teams are playing against each other. Since starting 2-0, Siena has lost their last seven. That’s not good. Princeton is meh this season, even with Michael Sowers and freshman Chris Brown on offense.
- Syracuse @ Cornell (7 PM): THE ONLY GAME THAT MATTERS TONIGHT. After this game, we will be able to have a better outlook of the entire Division I lacrosse landscape. Cornell has made it’s run at a possible at-large bid if they don’t win the Ivy League Tournament. They’ve played Albany and Yale tight, and also earned a win against Penn State before scoring 20+ goals in three straight wins. How will they fare against a Syracuse team that had made substantial progress since mid-March? The Orange have also won four of the last five games played between the two teams, with Cornell’s only win coming in overtime two years ago in Ithaca.
- Robert Morris @ Canisius (7 PM): This could be a preview of the NCAA Play-In game if both teams win their respective conference tournaments. The Colonials look to continue a really good season after beating Hobart in overtime Saturday afternoon. Canisius looks to get back on track after a 10-7 lead evaporated into a 12-10 loss to Detroit Mercy. Expect a good amount of offense in this one.
- Dartmouth @ UMass Lowell (7:30 PM): The Big Green are having a typical Big Green season, currently at 2-7 overall and face off against a UMass Lowell team that already has set a program record for wins with five. Win number six would put them back at .500 after losing to Vermont on Saturday.
