* WHEN: Tomorrow, 2 p.m.

* WHERE: Homewood Field, homecoming.

* RADIO: WITH-AM 1230.

* OUTLOOK: Navy has lost 16 straight to Johns Hopkins, last winning, 13-12, in 1974 in Bob Scott's last year as Blue Jays coach. The Middies have made it close the last five years, losing by a combined 11 goals. For No. 15 Navy (5-5), this game is the regular-season finale. Midfielder Adam Wright is probable for No. 7 Hopkins (5-3) after missing last week's loss at Maryland with a shoulder injury. Midfielders Seth Tierney (wrist) and Charlie Speno (hip) will play. Jeff Wills leads Hopkins with 17 goals. Dennis Nealon, who scored two Navy goals in last year's 6-4 loss, paces the Mids in goals and assists.


* WHEN: Tomorrow, 2 p.m.

* WHERE: Curley Field.

* OUTLOOK: Unranked Delaware (3-7) has a three-game losing streak after bowing Wednesday to Penn, 12-8. The teams share just one common opponent -- UMBC. No. 8 Loyola (6-3) crushed the Retrievers by 11 goals and Delaware won by four. The Greyhounds, led by Kevin Beach (20 goals, 19 assists), must beat Delaware and C.W. Post to clinch its fourth straight NCAA tournament bid. The Blue Hens' top scorers are Kevin Ellers (14 and 15) and Tom Stanziale (15 and nine).


* WHEN: Tomorrow, 1 p.m.

* WHERE: UMBC Stadium.

* OUTLOOK: No. 9 Towson State (7-2) can repeat as East Coast Conference champion by beating UMBC (7-5) and then Delaware. The Tigers have captured their last six decisions against UMBC, all by five or more goals. Their victory over the Retrievers last year raised their record to 11-1 and their ranking to No. 7, their highest ever. Michael DeSimone tops Towson in points (37), the first time in four years that someone other than Glenn Smith or John Blatchley has been in that position. Junior Steve Marohl, who has led UMBC in scoring in five of the last six games, is at the 50-point mark for the first time in his career. Bob Bailey has 552 saves, a UMBC Division I record.


* WHEN: Today and tomorrow. No. 4 and third-seeded Maryland (7-2) vs. No. 3 and second-seeded Virginia (9-2) at 6 p.m. today, followed by No. 1 and top-seeded North Carolina (10-0) vs. No. 11 and fourth-seeded Duke (7-4). Championship game is tomorrow (8 p.m.).

* WHERE: Durham, N.C.

* OUTLOOK: The Terps this season lost to North Carolina by two goals and to Virginia by one; they edged Duke, 13-11. In the first ACC tournament ever, in 1989, Maryland was top-seeded only to be upset by Duke. Rob Wurzburger needs seven more goals to tie Frank Urso, the Terps' all-time goals leader with 127.


* WHEN: Tomorrow, 1 p.m.

* WHERE: Sea Gull Stadium, Salisbury.

* OUTLOOK: Salisbury State (12-0), atop the Division III poll for the third straight week, needs this win to complete its first perfect regular season. Washington (3-6) is ranked No. 13. Despite close games virtually every year, including a two-point loss last season, Salisbury hasn't beaten Washington since 1981, a stretch of 12 games, including three playoffs. Rick Berkman's team-leading 47 goals puts him within reach of Dave Cottle's school single-season record of 59 in 1977. Berkman, with 83 points, and Eric Ungleich (82) also have a shot at Cottle's 1977 record for points (103).
