Towson sits at #1 but this is a huge weekend for Cornell as they take on Penn St. on Friday & then Towson on Sunday. If the Big Red can sweep the weekend, they’ll certainly be the #1 team in the country come Monday. Meanwhile, it is Towson’s world & we’re just living in it.

So here we are then.

Below is the Big Board with all of the results from yesterday. 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.

Mount St. Mary’s stunned Richmond yesterday beating the Spiders 12-11 in overtime.

Mount St. Mary’s tied the game with just 1.4 seconds left on Luke Frankeny’s fourth goal of the contest, and Chris DiPretoro won it for the Mount late in overtime on his fourth score of the game, as the Mount upset 14th-ranked Richmond, 12-11, on Tuesday. DiPretoro netted his 100th career goal in the first quarter, as he became the 13th player in program history to reach the 100-goal plateau. The victory for Mount St. Mary’s was the sixth all-time against a ranked opponent and the first since a 2013 win over #18 Bucknell.

The NCAA lifted the suspension on Tehoka Nanticoke, but it also rebuked coach Marr’s earlier statements.

Sister Act 3: Sisters’ coach-player relationship advantageous to Coker Women’s Lacrosse.

There have been fathers coaching sons, and mothers coaching daughter in college sports. But in the Coker College women’s lacrosse program, big sister is coaching her younger sister. The Kent sisters – coach Chelsea and player Faith – are blazing a path no one has tried before. “I had thought about it a lot,” Chelsea said. “It is a unique situation for how good she is as a player and the coach-to-player relationship.” Faith, who is a fifth-year senior, respects her big sister as a person and a coach. “There is a good balance here,” she said. “I respect her both on and off the field. She taught me everything about lacrosse to begin with.”

Nice article on Syracuse’s Jakob Phaup.

Jared Fernandez squared his shoulders at the faceoff man running off the field, flexed and roared. It was Feb. 8, and Syracuse was in the middle of its own comeback bid it never expected to be in. In a lifeless season-opening performance against Colgate — an eventual 12-9 loss — SU spent a majority of the contest without the ball, but the last two minutes brought an Orange run.

With usual faceoff man Danny Varello watching from the sidelines, the Orange looked into their near-present and future as sophomore Jakob Phaup won one faceoff, then the next, then the next. Then three more. “It’s a weird, funky thing,” Phaup said of the season-opener. “I think I was just hearing the whistles, just felt good. Wasn’t really nervous at all, just came in (and did) the job.”

TMJ4 in Milwaukee did a segment on Marquette’s new dome.

It stands out on the Milwaukee skyline. “You see it when you fly by too,” Marquette Men’s Lacrosse Head Coach Joe Amplo said.”When you see the Marquette banner on the sphere here, it’s a great thing. It’s a great thing for everybody and we’re thankful we have this opportunity to be in here.”

It’s the Marquette Dome where, for men’s lacrosse and soccer, it’s always nice. “It’s 60 and sunny in here every day, and we know we don’t feel that in Wisconsin,” Amplo said. “And most of our peers in our sport, they’re struggling with the weather in their own right. I mean those east coast schools have to deal with the storms and the inclement temperatures but we don’t.”


What’s Up, PhilaJersey?

Game-changer: Federal Donuts introduces new breakfast sandwich.

It turns out that our Sherlock Holmes-like powers of deduction on Friday proved correct: Federal Donuts is adding a breakfast sandwich to its menu starting today, March 4th. While we were really hoping for some kind of Double Down situation where fried chicken breasts (or hot donuts) serve as the bread for the sandwich, it’s built on a Martin’s potato roll just like their chicken sandwich. Egg comes in the form of a slice of steamed and crisp-fried scramble, along with Cooper sharp and bacon. It’s finished with a sweet-spicy house-made cherry pepper relish.

World/National News

LeBron in LA has been a disaster.

Johnson said the Lakers didn’t want to make the team like the Cleveland Cavaliers all over again for James. But sure enough, James found himself back in a ball-dominant role; though he didn’t have the shooters surrounding him to space the floor and open driving lanes to capitalize on his pinpoint passing, like he did in Miami and Cleveland. Magic was right. It wasn’t like Cleveland all over again: Los Angeles is ranked 22nd in offensive efficiency this season with the roster he put together. But it all could have worked if James hadn’t gotten hurt on Christmas Day and missed 18 of the next 19 games. James was just starting to find his footing with this new cast in Los Angeles. The team was starting to get healthy and find enough consistency to develop an identity. Of course, James did get hurt. And pretty much everything since then has been a disaster.
