Two summers ago, Pat Spencer slipped into a gym in Baltimore, seeking a good run of pickup basketball. In his first game, he raced downcourt and dunked. “We’re like, ‘Who is this dude?’” said Kurk Lee, the athletic director at the Under Armour House in Baltimore and a former NBA player. “Everyone in the gym fell in love with him.”
Logan McNaney had likely hoped for an uneventful start to his college career — his Maryland men’s lacrosse teammates recycling possession up the field and scoring goals early and often against Notre Dame as he watched on from his net.

In 2018, Dordevic started all 15 games — the most by a first-year offensive player at SU in over a decade — and scored 15 goals.

Senior long-stick midfielder and co-captain Ryan McNulty thinks the No. 11 Greyhounds are ready for a strong season after last year’s NCAA Tournament quarterfinal exit, when they lost, 21-14, to top-seeded Penn State.
UAlbany men’s lacrosse head coach Scott Marr said he woke up angry and disappointed Wednesday morning, following a game at #15 UMass that he felt the Great Danes should have won. He said his team shot itself in the foot, pointing to a number of areas they need to clean up ahead of their matchup with #7 Maryland this weekend.
