Today's women's games

Nat. Collegiate quarterfinals

No. 8 Georgetown (12-4) at No. 1 Maryland (18-1)

Site: Ludwig Field, College Park

Time: 1 p.m.

Skinny: The five-time defending champion Terrapins begin their title defense against a Hoyas team they beat, 16-6, on April 13. The two teams met in last year's quarterfinal, a 17-6 Terps win. Maryland has won 13 straight NCAA tournament games and has been to the final four every year since coach Cindy Timchal took over in 1991. Averaging 16.36 goals a game, the Terps boast the nation's top offense, led by Jen Adams (68 goals, 46 assists) and Allison Comito (57, 25). The Hoyas, coming off an 11-10 first-round victory over No. 9 Syracuse, are looking for their first-ever win over the Terps. Sheehan Stanwick (52, 18) had five goals in the Syracuse game and Erin Elbe (42, 10) added two.

No. 5 Loyola (15-4) at No. 4 North Carolina (12-5)

Site: Henry Stadium, Chapel Hill, N.C.

Time: 1 p.m.

Skinny: Coming off a 14-4 first-round victory over No. 12 Delaware, the Greyhounds are looking for their first trip to the final four since 1997. They will make it if they can avenge an early-season 8-6 loss to the Tar Heels in which the Greyhounds led 6-3 at the half. They have come a long way since then. Their balanced attack has made up for the loss of two starters to injury and goalie Tricia Dabrowski's 6.52 goals-against average is the lowest in the nation. Stacey Morlang (60 goals, 16 assists) leads the Greyhounds' balanced attack. The Tar Heels, who had an opening round bye, are led by Kellie Thompson (35, 19) and Meghann Mohler (26, 8).
