Coach Desko talked to the media about tonight’s Syracuse vs. Cornell game.

Nick Mellen also talked to the media about going up against Cornell’s potent offense.

Nothing like Syracuse vs. Cornell to go with dinner.

Here’s a great article on Kevin Lindley.

Most players would be content with scoring 37 goals in their freshman season, but Loyola Maryland’s Kevin Lindley isn’t like most freshmen. He isn’t like most players, either. He is the son of a high school coach and has a drive that is beyond his years. Just ask Loyola coach Charley Toomey.

It’s Aggregation time! We released our Week 9 Top 20 poll, as did USILA, Inside Lacrosse, & US Lacrosse Magazine. Below is a chart with the Week 9 Top 20 poll results from each of the national polls.

Book exploring history of lacrosse & Indigenous nationhood wins $10K Canada Prize.

The Creator’s Game: Lacrosse, Identity and Indigenous Nationhood by Allan Downey has won the 2019 Canada Prize, an annual $10,000 award given to the best scholarly book in the fields of humanities and social sciences. Exploring the history of lacrosse in Canada beginning in the 1860s, Downey’s book looks at how the sport was appropriated and stripped of its cultural value by non-Indigenous settlers and later reclaimed by the Indigenous communities who had been playing it for centuries.

Cleveland State love the kids!!

The 2019 JHU men’s lacrosse season is a “work in progress.”

Some had come to watch the burial of the Johns Hopkins lacrosse team, but instead the Blue Jays said not yet. Johns Hopkins held off a fourth-quarter comeback attempt by No. 18 Rutgers for a 15-13 victory before a crowd of nearly 4,000 at Homewood Field on Saturday to keep their postseason hopes alive.

If the Blue Jays (6-4, 2-0 Big Ten) had lost, they would have been at .500 and at risk of not making it to the conference playoffs, much less the NCAA Division I tournament. But the postseason scenario appeared brighter after Saturday’s win.

Shout out to coach Reese.

What’s Up, PhilaJersey?

Check out Philly’s newest beer garden.

Over the weekend, the Philadelphia Zoo debuted Urban Green, its new dining space. The outdoor food marketplace, designed by Groundswell Design Group — the folks behind Spruce Street Harbor Park — serves casual fare, beer, and wine from three food trucks.

Urban Green’s food options, coordinated by the zoo’s executive chef, Oleg Zelonko, include Root to Leaf, which serves vegetarian food; Fry Bowl, with a menu of waffle fries with toppings like pulled pork or nacho cheese; and Pressed, which serves panini-style grilled sandwiches for lunch and early dinner, along with alcoholic drinks.

World/National News

Cherry Blossoms bring in billions of dollars in Japan.

There’s a popular saying in Japanese: dumplings over blossoms—meaning substance is better than beauty. But that might sell short the phenomenon of cherry-blossom season in Japan. Over the course of a few weeks, cherry trees across the country burst into bloom, painting the country in shades of pink and white. It’s become a national obsession with growing global appeal—and it’s a boon to Japan’s economy. An estimated 63 million people travel to and within Japan to view the bloom, spending around $2.7 billion (301 billion yen) in the process, according to an analysis from Kansai University. With the bloom currently underway and the number of tourists up in the first two months of the year, a record number of visitors is expected again.
