Michigan beat Marquette yesterday 13-12. Here is the box score and here is the Michigan recap of the game.

The University of Michigan men’s lacrosse team defeated Marquette, 13-12, in a nailbiter Wednesday (March 11) at U-M Lacrosse Stadium. Junior Alex Buckanavage had a game-high seven points and became the fastest Wolverine to reach the 100-point plateau.

The Ivy League canceled all spring sports for the remainder of the academic year, thus shutting down all seven men’s lacrosse programs for the rest of 2020.

Despite putting out a press release yesterday announcing spring sport in-venue spectator limitations for the remainder of the season, the Ivy League reversed course today and decided to cancel all spring athletics practice and competition through the remainder of the academic year. Here is some more information from today’s release.

With further developments in the outbreak of COVID-19, the Ivy League Presidents are announcing their unanimous decision to cancel all spring athletics practice and competition through the remainder of the academic year. Individual institutions will decide whether or not winter teams and student-athletes who have qualified for postseason play will participate.

Lafayette canceled all sporting events, including men’s lacrosse, from March 16-April 5.

In order to help manage the spread of COVID-19, Lafayette College has enacted a series of steps which includes a cancellation of all campus events and school-sponsored travel from March 16 through April 5. All athletic competitions will be suspended during the period.

The College will move to remote teaching and learning for the two weeks following spring break, from March 23 through April 5. After the three-week absence, students are expected to return to campus and resume in-person classes along with athletic practices and competitions.

Hampton also suspended all athletic events.

Hampton University is committed to prevention and keeping the campus community safe, informed and healthy. In light of the Coronavirus (COVID-19), effective immediately, all non-essential visitation to campus has been suspended until further notice (including all athletic events).

From the Daily Orange: Griffin Cook steps into expanded role with SU after growing up in program’s shadow.

When Brendan Curry’s shot was blocked and bounced toward Colgate’s goalie, Griffin Cook paced backward and scanned the field. Sam Collins cradled the ball from inside his crease and dumped it off to a Raider midfielder, so Cook raced up three steps.

From The Massachusetts Daily Collegian: UMass hopes to continue dominance against Utah at Garber field.

The Massachusetts men’s lacrosse team will look to continue their win streak, which currently sits at four after its win against LIU on Tuesday. UMass is back at Garber sooner than expected, as its game against Utah was moved from Farmingdale State College on Saturday to back home on Friday afternoon because of concern over COVID-19.
