College Crosse News

Check out our latest Untitled Project. In this episode, Chris and I interview Bill Tharp from On The Banks.

Welcome to another Untitled Project on the College Crossecast Network. In this episode me and Chris interview Bill Tharp from On The Banks, SB Nation’s Rutgers blog. Full Disclosure, this is definitely a pro-Jersey episode.

In this show we talk about Bill’s background, how he got into lacrosse, Central Jersey food recommendations, and how he feels about Rutgers’ chances at making the tournament his season. We also learn about Bill’s time as a youth coach, how he got his start as a writer, and plenty more in this really fun episode.

Shout out to South Jersey boy, Bryce Young.

After hearing his name called over the loudspeakers for one of the last times, jogging through a line of high-fiving teammates at Maryland Stadium and stopping to hug Coach John Tillman, Bryce Young reached his family, all standing and screaming in a jagged row, and grasped the framed picture from his cousin.

The picture was of Tyler Wechsler, Young’s cousin who died unexpectedly last April at 21 years old, smiling beneath the white cap of his Marines uniform. They were like best friends, Wechsler six months older and Young always trying to match his cousin’s scrappiness in lacrosse or street hockey or backyard football. Young brought that to Maryland, where he anchors the third-ranked Terrapins’ back line as a defenseman, so his family brought Wechsler’s photograph to Young’s senior day Sunday in College Park.

Young, standing 10 yards away from the goal he soon would protect, held the photo up as the family smiled for a few pictures. The sun reflected off Wechsler’s photo, and Young tilted it so the cameras would capture his cousin’s face. They were, for a moment, together again.

Caroline is stoked that UVA is going to the ACC Tournament Championship game.

Another Virginia-Syracuse lacrosse game, another one-goal finish. The Wahoos emerged victorious in the second ACC tournament semifinal, besting the Orange 11-10 in a thrilling, back-and-forth affair. Neither team led by more than two goals, and the win by Virginia narrowed Cuse’s slight lead in the all-time series to 18-17 (separated by one goal at 452-451, Syracuse).

Virginia, the No. 4 seed, will face No. 3 seed Notre Dame in the finals on Sunday at Klöckner Stadium in Charlottesville at high noon. With the win, the Hoos will head to their first ACC title game since they lost to UNC in 2013.

UMass’ run continues.

The Massachusetts men’s lacrosse team defeated Hofstra 14-6 on Friday night to cement its undefeated Colonial Athletic Association record, the first team to do so since 2013, and bumped its current win streak up to nine in a row.

UMass (10-4-0, 5-0 CAA) found itself down to the Pride (6-7-0, 2-3 CAA) early in the contest, but thanks to a handful of stops from goalie Sean Sconone, which jump-started the transition game, it went on a tear and scored 10 straight goals to cruise to a lopsided victory.

Buddy Carr and Billy Philpott each recorded hat-tricks in the win, while Chris Connolly and Jesse Leung each netted two goals of their own.

Entering the season’s culminating matchup with a .500 league record, Hofstra was on the hunt for a win to lock up the No. 2 seed in the impending playoff tournament. But, with the loss, the Pride now look to the scoreboards of the remaining league games to determine their seeding fate.

Vermont honored its seniors last night.

What’s Up, PhilaJersey?

Danny DeVito Day is New Jersey’s newest holiday.

All hail Danny DeVito, king of Asbury Park (sorry, Springsteen and Bon Jovi, but you’ve gotten more than your fair share).

The New York Times reports that on Saturday, at the Asbury Park Music & Film Festival, Gov. Phil Murphy is set to announce that the veteran actor, a Monmouth County native, will get his own state day. The gesture is not without significance -- the actor will become the first person from Asbury Park to get their own day.

When exactly is Danny DeVito Day? Why, Nov. 17, the birthday of the man who would play Martini in “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest” (alongside Jack Nicholson, who hails from Neptune City), animate the abrasive dispatcher Louie DePalma in “Taxi,” team with Arnold Schwarzenegger for “Twins” and “Junior,” become the Penguin in “Batman Returns” and “get weird with it” as Frank Reynolds on “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia.”

”I was very flattered,” DeVito told the Times. “Of course, they first told me I could have a beach. Yeah, but they reneged. So I said, ‘Oh, that’s perfect. It’s New Jersey.’”

ABBA’S BACK!!

“Mamma Mia! Here we go again”: Sweden’s legendary disco group ABBA announced on Friday that they have reunited to record two new songs, 35 years after their last single, sparking joy and surprise among fans.

”We all four felt that, after some 35 years, it could be fun to join forces again and go into the recording studio. So we did,” the group said in a statement after repeatedly vowing they would never reunite.

The new songs “I Still Have Faith In You” and “Don’t Shut Me Down” were recorded last summer, the band’s manager Gorel Hanser told TT news agency.

The quartet split up in 1982 after dominating the disco scene for more than a decade with hits like “Waterloo”, “Dancing Queen”, “Mamma Mia” and “Super Trouper”.

”It was like time had stood still and that we only had been away on a short holiday. An extremely joyful experience!” members Agnetha Faltskog, Bjorn Ulvaeus, Anni-Frid Lyngstad and Benny Andersson added.
