Today's games

No. 3 Maryland (3-0) at No. 20 Towson (2-1)

Site: Minnegan Stadium

Time: 1 p.m.

Radio: WTMD (89.7 FM)

Outlook: The Terps beat the Tigers in the final minute last year, their sixth straight win in the series. Towson opened with a loss to Virginia, another ACC power, but rebounded with victories over Radford and Lehigh. Maryland has outscored opponents 39-15, and the Tigers need a big game from goalie John Horrigan.

No. 16 Hofstra (0-2) at No. 8 Johns Hopkins (0-1)

Site: Homewood Field

Time: 1 p.m.

Radio: WJFK (1300 AM)

Outlook: The Blue Jays played well enough defensively to win at Princeton but had their lowest output in 17 seasons and lost 8-4. Goals should be easier to come by against the Pride, who surrendered 34 in losses to Massachusetts and Loyola. It's the home debut for Hopkins coach Dave Pietramala.

No. 14 Cornell (2-0) at No. 11 UMBC (2-0)

Site: UMBC Stadium

Time: 1 p.m.

TV: Ch. 2.

Outlook: Both teams opened the season with one-goal victories, then cruised in their most recent tests. Retrievers goalie Steve Cusa has allowed just 13 goals, and Josh Hahn has scored seven. Cornell has dropped its four previous visits to UMBC, the last two years ago.

No. 19 Navy (0-2) at No. 9 Massachusetts (2-0)

Site: Richard F. Garber Field, Amherst, Mass.

Time: 1 p.m.

Outlook: Amherst has been buried under more than 2 feet of snow this week, but UMass' artificial turf field should be clean for this ECAC game. Navy's last four losses have been by a goal, including 2001 setbacks to UMBC and North Carolina. Goals were at a premium last year, when the Mids beat the Minutemen, 6-3.

No. 5 Loyola (2-0) at No. 9 Duke (3-1)

Site: Koskinen Stadium, Durham, N.C.

Time: 1 p.m.

Outlook: The Greyhounds spent spring vacation practicing in Florida, but they will get no break in Durham, where the Blue Devils are smarting from a 13-5 loss at Maryland. Loyola has home victories over Delaware and Hofstra but sputtered in both. The Greyhounds beat Duke by a goal last year in Baltimore.
