TMJ4 in Milwaukee did a segment on Marquette’s new dome practice field.
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.”
NCAA reinstated UAlbany lacrosse star Tehoka Nanticoke.
University at Albany men’s lacrosse star Tehoka Nanticoke had his eligibility reinstated by the NCAA on Monday after sitting out Saturday’s loss at Cornell because of a social media post. Nanticoke will play in the home opener against Massachusetts on Tuesday, UAlbany athletics said in an email. “I am happy it did (work out),” UAlbany head coach Scott Marr said in a text.
The NCAA rebuked Marr’s earlier statements.
The Albany lacrosse coach made inaccurate statements. Here are the facts. The NCAA did not suspend Tehoka Nanticoke. Albany proactively withheld him Saturday after finding a violation. The NCAA acted on Monday, the same day Albany reached out, and said he did not need to sit.— Inside the NCAA (@InsidetheNCAA) March 5, 2019
Despite having Tehoka back in the lineup, Albany still lost yesterday to UMass.
Coming off a near-upset of No. 4 Yale this past Saturday, the Massachusetts men’s lacrosse team came out strong over Albany on Tuesday and never looked back in its 14-8 win over the Great Danes.
Albany (1-3) proved to be an interesting opponent as it was just coming off of a close game with No. 3 Cornell, losing by just one point in a shootout 17-16.
UMass (2-3) started off the scoring with senior midfielder Ben Spencer’s goal off of an offsides call 61 seconds into the game, assisted by freshman midfielder Gabriel Procyk. Another UMass goal followed shortly thereafter, scored by redshirt junior midfielder Billy Philpott, putting the Minutemen up 2-0 early.
