The Brown-Bryant Series Record: Brown and Bryant have met 10 times, dating back to 2009, with the Bears holding a 6-4 series advantage. The Bulldogs captured last year’s game, coming away with a 17-9 decision in Providence. Brown had won four of the previous five meetings, including a 14-12 decision in 2017 behind Jack Kniffin’s four goals.
The Ivy League Playoff Picture: With one Ivy League game remaining in the regular season, the Bears are looking to make their fourth straight Ivy League Tournament appearance. A Brown win over Dartmouth on Saturday, coupled with a Princeton loss at Cornell would give the Bears the fourth seed in the Ivy Tournament. A Bears’ win over Dartmouth and a Princeton win over Cornell would initiate a three-way tiebreaker procedure for the third and fourth seeds with each team posting a 3-3 conference record. In this scenario, tiebreakers for head-to-head and record against higher seeds would still result in a tie. Goal differential among the three tied teams would be the next tiebreaker. The Bears are currently plus-one against Princeton and Cornell with a four-goal win over Princeton and a three-goal loss to Cornell.
The Bryant University men’s lacrosse team wraps up its 2019 campaign Tuesday when the Bulldogs host Brown at Beirne Stadium for the Ocean State Cup. Both teams picked up victories over Providence earlier this season to earn the right to play for an outright claim to the Ocean State Cup. A Bryant victory would mean a sweep of the men’s and women’s lacrosse trophies in 2019.
LAST TIME OUT: ROBERT MORRIS 20, BRYANT 16
Senior Ryan Cerino (Greer, S.C.) tied the Bryant D1 single-game record with six goals on Senior Day, but Robert Morris used a seven-goal first-half run and led the rest of the way in an offensive showdown at Beirne Stadium.
Quinnipiac men’s lacrosse is set for its final non-conference game of the year on Tuesday night, making the short trip to Reese Field to square off with defending national champion Yale at 7:00 p.m.
LAST TIME OUT: vs. MONMOUTH
Seniors Foster Cuomo and Mike Fletcher combined to score all 10 Bobcat goals on Saturday afternoon, leading Quinnipiac men’s lacrosse past Monmouth, 10-9, on Senior Day.
With the win, the Bobcats move to 7-5 (4-2 MAAC) so far in 2019 with just two games left in the regular season. The Bobcats scored four unanswered goals to begin the game, then never relinquished the lead.
Cuomo paced Quinnipiac with six goals, while Fletcher added four goals and two assists.
The No. 4 Bulldogs, winners of three straight, finish off their regular-season home schedule with the last non-league contest and a visit from Quinnipiac. Yale (9-2, 4-1 Ivy), which had another Ivy League Player of the Week in junior TD Ierlan, faces off against the Bobcats (7-5, 4-2 MAAC) at Reese Stadium Tuesday night at 7 in a contest airing live on ESPN+ and Stretch Internet.
SERIES: The Bulldogs have taken all 4 games against their New Haven Country neighbors by a combined score of 58-30. The first was in 2002, a 17-8 decision and the most goals Yale has netted in the short series.
LAST MEETING: Brandon Mangan had 3 goals and 3 assists while Conrad Oberbeck chipped in 3 goals in Yale’s 14-11 win over the Bobcats in 2014 at Reese Stadium.
Shout out to coach Ric Beardsley
Lacrosse is far from the most diverse sport — something you could probably guess without even diving into the numbers. Yet, it’s important to look at why this is the case, and also the racial issues that can cause within the sport. Luckily, the Daily Orange dove into exactly that with an extensive feature that also spoke to various figures within the Syracuse program. Among the most notable people interviewed was former SU star Jovan Miller, who describes his own experiences with intolerance within the sport, and also talks about the education issue that comes from most lacrosse players being raised in similar backgrounds and situations that lack diversity (and at times, the right parental guidance).
Here’s a wonderful video honoring Connor Darcey by Penn State lacrosse.
Athens-Clarke County police have released a sketch of the person they say robbed a University of Georgia student at gunpoint just before shooting one of the school’s lacrosse players multiple times. The injured student, identified by his high school lacrosse team as Tate Prezzano, 22, was taken to a hospital with serious injuries Monday after the shooting, authorities said.
