GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOD MORNING, College Crosse Nation! Thanks for making us a part of your day! The holiday break’s over and we’re back to our normal Prospectus schedule. Here’s everything you need to know for January 6, 2020.

College Crosse News

Check out Chris’ breakdown of Brown’s 2020 schedule.

The Brown Bears are the 67th team in our 2020 men’s college lacrosse schedule preview series and the sixth team from the Ivy League. Brown finished 7-9 overall in 2019 and 3-3 in Ivy League play. The Bears lost to Penn in the Ivy League semifinals.

Also make sure to check out Chris’ take on Duke’s calendar this year.

The Duke Blue Devils are the 68th team in our 2020 men’s college lacrosse schedule preview series and the fourth team from the ACC. Duke finished 13-5 overall in 2019 and 2-2 in ACC play. The Blue Devils lost to Notre Dame in the ACC semifinals, but defeated Richmond and the Fighting Irish again in the NCAA Tournament before falling to Virginia in the national semifinals.

Team USA had a close call versus Japan down in San Antonio.

When Shogo Oshima started playing lacrosse as a goalie at the University of Tokyo, he would watch videos of American shooters like Will Manny and envision making saves against them.

They were ready for it this time: Andrei Svechnikov wasn’t able to convert on another lacrosse-style goal versus the Lightning.

Can you answer this question: How many schools, other than Syracuse, have titles in men’s basketball, football, & men’s lacrosse?

Sometimes, the questions at Mike’s Mailbox are easy to answer. Sometimes they’re difficult and require a lot of time and research.

The boys are back in town!

Nice article from Sports Illustrated on how the PLL developed the Waterdogs Lacrosse Club, its new expansion team.

As the PLL prepares for its second season, its first-ever expansion club, and seventh team overall, will be known as Waterdogs Lacrosse Club. Its slogan, “Every Game is a Revenge Game” is linked to both its crest and also its stature as the seventh team.

What’s Up, New PhilaJersey?

The Eagles are dunzo after losing to the Seattle Seahawks last night in the first round of the NFL Playoffs.

The Wilson to Metcalf connection was too much for an injury-riddled Philadelphia team to overcome.

World/National News

These images from space demonstrate the magnitude of the brushfires in Australia.

Australia’s raging bushfires are so bad that satellites thousands of miles above Earth can easily spot their flames and smoke from space.
