Two games today to end your work week and ease you into the weekend. Unfortunately, only one of them is going to be streamed. Nevertheless, some Division I lacrosse is always better than no Division I lacrosse. Directly below is the Big Board for March 15, 2019. As usual, clicking on the team name will take you to that team’s homepage, while clicking on the Stream/TV cell will take you to the broadcast of that game. Additionally, clicking the Live Stats cell will take you to the live stats of that particular game. All times Eastern Standard Time
Speaking of Utah, who saw Building A Program last night?!? It was fantastic.
Hope you all tuned in tonight to 'Building a Program.' Huge thanks to @paulcarcaterra, @CFJastrzembski and the team at @espn for telling our story. It's only the beginning. Check your local listings for re-airs. #goutes pic.twitter.com/LO04WMrIg3— UtahLacrosse (@UtahLacrosse) March 14, 2019
That was the most gratifying thing I've ever done.— Chris Jastrzembski (@CFJastrzembski) March 14, 2019
It’s been a week for colleges and athletics and all that stuff if you’ve seen the news. And hey, if scandals aren’t your thing, March Madness is here to grab all your attention. But there’s also the magical sport of lacrosse. And here at COLLEGE CROSSE, we know lacrosse quite a bit. Which is why we’re here with the latest edition of the CROSSECAST.
Safe and Jake join me as we get you prepared for St. Patrick’s Day weekend and the games at hand. We look back on Lehigh’s win over Rutgers and Utah’s performance against Duke (7:05) before we dive into Saturday. We cover the Noon games at 17:00, another jam-packed 1 pm slate featuring Cornell-Yale, Towson-Duke, and Denver-Ohio State at 22:00, and go over the rest of the weekend at 58:00 as we touch upon Notre Dame-Virginia. We also do our upset specials of the week and our pick ‘em segment to wrap up the show (1:09:08).
Ohio State’s game against Denver, scheduled for this Saturday, March 16 at Ohio Stadium, has been cancelled. The blizzard conditions in Denver this week will not allow the Pioneers to make the trip to Columbus. No make-up date is expected. Fans who purchased tickets to the game can exchange their ticket for admission into either of Ohio State’s remaining home games: March 31 vs. Rutgers (noon) or April 20 vs. Maryland (1 p.m.). Refunds are also available at the point of purchase. For questions or more information, contact the Ohio State Athletics Ticket Office at 1-800-GOBUCKS or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Men’s lacrosse (2–3) was defeated by Rutgers (4–3) last weekend 9–8. The Tigers will head to Philadelphia to face Penn (2–3) for their first Ivy League game of the season.
Princeton and Rutgers go way back — the first time the two teams played each other was in 1888 (Princeton won that game 5–1). Last Saturday, the team traveled to Piscataway to face off against the Scarlet Knights.
Rutgers outscored the Tigers in the first two quarters and by halftime led 9–3. In the first quarter, Princeton’s senior midfielder Charlie Durbin and sophomore attacker Chris Brown each had a goal, keeping the Tigers only one behind the Scarlet Knights. The quarter finished 3–2. In the second, Rutgers opened the scoring with a goal two minutes in.
Heading into the 2019 season, Maryland men’s lacrosse coach John Tillman knew he’d need to retool. With the graduation of eight regulars — four of them starters — the Terps would have to work in freshmen and transfers while giving a larger workload to inexperienced returning players ... “We love to try to move the needle as quickly as possible in terms of development,” Tillman said. “The journey’s been great. … A lot of bright spots so far [and] a lot of things we can build on.” The Terps’ transformation began with two freshman contributors — defender Brett Makar, who’s started every game, and midfielder Kyle Long, who ranks sixth on the team in points.
.@IMGAcademy spokesman says the school let lacrosse coach Mark Burnam go for reasons unrelated to the national #CollegeCheatingScandal.— Carlos R. Munoz (@ReadCarlos) March 14, 2019
"I don't have a specific reason available; we just know he was let go. It's not related. Coincidental that it happened, but unrelated."
Florida Lacrosse News was the first to report that Burnam was out at IMG. The story broke on March 12th. Former Cornell men’s lacrosse head coach Matt Kerwick replaced Burnam at IMG as the school’s head lacrosse coach.
What’s Up, PhilaJersey?
Philadelphia is ranked as the city with second most aggressive drivers. A March 2019 study conducted by GasBuddy, which is an app designed to save drivers money on fuel, analyzed the 30 largest metropolitan areas in the United States to create a list of the 10 cities with the most aggressive drivers. Los Angeles took the top spot, with Sacramento and Atlanta following Philadelphia. Phoenix was ranked No. 13, Washington D.C. was ranked No. 20, and New York was ranked No. 23 of the 30 metropolitan areas surveyed. Four of the cities on the list are in California.
The U.S. college admissions scandal that erupted this week has triggered private litigation accusing rich, well-connected parents of buying spots for their children at prestigious schools, and keeping children of less wealthy parents out.
A $500 billion civil lawsuit filed by a parent on Wednesday in San Francisco accused 45 defendants of defrauding and inflicting emotional distress on everyone whose “rights to a fair chance at entrance to college” were stolen through their alleged conspiracy.
