The Men's Week Ahead

April 23, 2008|By Edward Lee

No. 6 Johns Hopkins (5-5)

Coming up: vs. Towson, tonight, 7; vs. Mount St. Mary's, Monday, 7 p.m.

Comment: Back at .500 for the first time in nearly a month, the Blue Jays continue their road to recovery with more in-state opponents. All three of freshman attackman Kyle Wharton's goals have come during extra-man chances.

No. 7 UMBC (9-3)

Coming up: @Vermont, Saturday, 1 p.m.

Comment: The Retrievers have clinched home-field advantage in the America East tournament and would love to finish the regular season with nine straight wins. Freshman Bobby Stockton recorded his first four career points in Saturday's win over Hartford.

No. 10 Navy (9-4)

Coming up: vs. Colgate, Friday, 7 p.m.

Comment: The Midshipmen, who will face the Raiders at West Point in the Patriot League tournament, won't host the event for only the second time in five years. Sophomore attackman Tim Paul has 21 goals, leading a group of 21 different players who have scored for Navy.

No. 11 Maryland (8-4)

Coming up: vs. No. 3 Virginia, Friday, 7:30 p.m.

Comment: Can the Terps, who haven't won the Atlantic Coast Conference tournament title since 2005, upset the Cavaliers again and then beat either No. 1 Duke or No. 17 North Carolina? Another 15-save effort from goalie Jason Carter would help.

No. 12 Loyola (7-4)

Coming up: @Hobart, Saturday, 1 p.m.

Comment: The Greyhounds have clinched their second straight appearance in the NCAA tournament - back-to-back appearances for the first time since 2000 and 2001. Freshman attackman Matt Langan has scored 11 goals on 17 shots (64.7 percent).

Towson (4-8)

Coming up: @No. 5 Johns Hopkins, tonight, 7; vs. Pennsylvania, Saturday, 1 p.m.

Comment: To qualify for the Colonial Athletic Association tournament, the Tigers need Delaware to lose to Sacred Heart and No. 6 Drexel to lose to Villanova. Junior faceoff specialist Mitchell Rosensweig has won 58.8 percent (107 of 182) of his faceoffs.

Mount St. Mary's (1-9)

Coming up: vs. VMI, Wednesday, 4 p.m.; vs. Siena, Saturday, 1 p.m.

Comment: The Mountaineers barely lost to Marist in a double-overtime, 6-5 decision Saturday. Freshman goalkeeper T.C. DiBartolo made a career-high 19 saves.
