GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOD MORNING, College Crosse Nation! Thanks for making us a part of your day! Here’s everything you need to know for March 20, 2019.

Happy First Day Of Spring

WE DID IT FOLKS! We made it through another cold, wet, and snowy winter, as today marks the official start of spring. Here are a some facts and a few myths associated with the first day of spring. Spoiler alert: I already tried the egg balancing thing and it doesn't work. Cherry blossoms down in Washington D.C. are expected to reach peak bloom in the first week of April. Make sure you check it out if you can.

THIS. IS. MARCH: Shout out to Chris for this fantastic guide to picking your March Madness bracket based on nothing but lacrosse.

This. Is. MARCH. Welcome to the best week in all of sports. The first and second rounds of the NCAA Tournament make work or school or whatever you’re doing a lot more enjoyable. Don’t expect to do stuff during that time. Odds are you’ll end up with some tough choices, and that’s okay! Here at College Crosse, we’ll help you with those tough choices, by picking all the winners based on college lacrosse teams! Last year, we had the Villanova Wildcats (a good pick!) beating the Virginia Cavaliers (not a good pick!) in the title game, and it wasn’t the best of brackets. We did call a 16 seed beating a 1 seed! Oh well, we’ll do it again anyways! And you can pick your winner here!

Below is the Scoreboard for yesterday’s games. Clicking on any any team will take you to that team’s official website. Clicking on the box score cell will take you to that game’s box score. Clicking on the recap cell will take you to the winning team’s recap.

Highlights from Cornell vs. St. Bonaventure.

5 out of 10 for the landing. But 10 out of 10 for the celebration.

Wild ending between Holy Cross & Brown last night,

Here’s another look at the HC game-winner over Brown.

#GotEm: Harvard upset BU last night thanks to this triple OT score by the Nigel Andrews.

Make sure you also read Chris’ post from Harvard’s win over BU!

For the second straight year, the Harvard Crimson found themselves down in the fourth quarter to the Boston University Terriers. And for the second straight year, the Crimson clawed their way back to force overtime and come out of the game with a win. The Terriers looked to have broken through in the third quarter with a 4-0 run to take a 9-4 lead. But Chris Wojcik’s squad of “never quit” players flipped the result in their favor for a 12-11 triple overtime win at Nickerson Field. “I think we were kind of on our heels,” Wojcik said. “We challenged the guys in the huddle that BU is really taking it to us. We challenged them regardless of the outcome that we’re going down, being really aggressive and attacking. I don’t think we did that at all times, especially offensively.”

Jake, Ryan, & I taped a new Crossecast on Monday night.

Another week has come and gone in the 2019 NCAA Men’s Lacrosse season, and we’re here to break it down with a new COLLEGE CROSSECAST. But this time we’re trying a few new things to help liven the conversation!

i’m joined by Safe and Jake as we introduce some new features to the podcast, and right off the bat we introduce our mailbag segment (:16). Tweet your questions to @College_Crosse and we’ll answer them on our next podcast! We dive into the news of Duke-Syracuse moving outdoors and the potential end to the Johns Hopkins-Virginia rivalry (1:24) before we streamline the recap segment into a new format. I start off by reading off the scorecard (18:25) and then we dive into a discussion about the games that jumped out at us. We talk Towson-Duke (26:15), Cornell-Yale (36:20), Delaware-Hopkins (40:53), Notre Dame-Virginia (42:30), Rutgers-Syracuse (47:30), Villanova-Maryland (56:15), and Princeton-Penn (1:08:22). Given this new format may focus a bit on the ACC, B1G, and Ivies, as well as those not in those conferences already in the polls, we also introduce the non-P3 spotlight (1:03:10) with teams and performances that stuck out at us outside the top 10 tier of teams.

Wonderful article on Yale midfielder Brian Tevlin.

Brian Tevlin signed up for the national bone marrow donor registry as a high school junior after witnessing the importance of the program to those in need. Lisa Mottesi, the mother of his best friend, Nico, was suffering through leukemia and nearly out of options. She required a transplant to survive. No potential donors were identified until a call at the 11th hour. A match was found. Her life was saved.

Plans & numbers for potential future home for MLL Lacrosse Chesapeake Bayhawks were unveiled yesterday.

Building more than two dozen fields, a 10,000-seat stadium and retail and hotel space would cost about $278 million dollars at the Crownsville Hospital Center grounds and it will likely take taxpayer-funded bonds to do it. Chesapeake Sports and Entertainment Group on Tuesday unveiled the numbers behind its concept proposal for Chesapeake Park. The park is estimated to cost $278 million and CSEG is proposing four core ideas in its presentation.

Friend of the blog Paul Carcaterra dropped a new Overtime podcast with special guest, Mike Powell.

Mike Powell was born into one of the most influential families in the history of lacrosse. Like his brothers, Casey and Ryan, Powell was a four-time All-American at Syracuse. All three of them have world championship rings with Team USA. But what separated Powell from his two brothers were his creative interests. During an on-and-off professional lacrosse career, Powell pursued his other interests — music and art. As creative as he was on the lacrosse field, memorably completing a forward flip before scoring at the Carrier Dome and dazzling during the 2006 MLL All-Star Game freestyle competition, Powell wanted to channel his talents in a different forum.

Moooooooooove out of the way: Runaway cow causes major traffic jam in NYC.

Once again, a cow has taken over the streets of New York City - this time running wild on the Major Deegan. Chopper 4 footage showed an extensive traffic jam Tuesday afternoon as NYPD officers tried to safely corral the cow. It was captured and tethered to a light pole in the highway median, though the agitated animal was at one point straining aggressively against the rope before apparently being tranquilized.
