College Lacrosse

March 09, 2002|By Bill Free

No. 14 Massachusetts (1-1) at No. 12 Navy (2-1)

Site: Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium, Annapolis

Time: noon

Outlook: Hard-luck Navy suffered an 11-10 loss to North Carolina in six overtimes last week. It was the longest (83 minutes, 39 seconds) lacrosse game in NCAA history. Massachusetts has been sluggish in two games, losing to Hofstra and barely beating Stony Brook.

No. 5 Towson (2-0) at No. 7 Maryland (2-1)

Site: Byrd Stadium, College Park

Time: 1 p.m.

TV/Radio: Ch. 2/WTMD (89.7 FM)

Outlook: Towson has exploded on the scene in the past year as a legitimate national power. Maryland lost to Duke last week.

No. 3 Duke (2-0) at No. 8 Loyola (2-0)

Site: Curley Field

Time: 1 p.m.

Radio: WWLG (AM 1360)

Outlook: The Blue Devils continued to haunt Maryland last week, and they are riding high this week in the national polls. Loyola has been a strong second-half team in two successful outings under new coach Bill Dirrigl.

No. 2 Johns Hopkins (1-0) at No. 11 Hofstra (2-1)

Site: Hofstra Stadium, Hemptead, N.Y.

Time: 1:30 p.m.

Radio: WJFK (1300 AM)

Outlook: Hopkins is still in the clouds after a season-opening 8-5 victory last week over defending national champion Princeton. Unpredictable Hofstra is always a threat to pull off a major upset.

UMBC (1-1) at No. 15 Cornell (1-1)

Site: Schoellkopf Field, Ithaca, N.Y.

Time: 2 p.m.

Radio: WNST (1570 AM)

Outlook: UMBC has been struggling in the early going and needs a quality victory. Cornell played Georgetown tough before losing and was unimpressive in a one-goal win over Colgate.
