College lacrosse: Across the nation

March 24, 2011

Ed Stephenson has resigned as head coach at Binghamton in response to the suspension of three players by the university, according to an e-mail from Stephenson to former players, alumni and America East coaches that Inside Lacrosse obtained. Stephenson was not Inside Lacrosse's source of the e-mail. "I have three student-athletes whom are being treated unjustly by our Athletic Department and Binghamton University," Stephenson said in the e-mail. An athletic department spokesperson confirmed the resignation and the suspension of three players from the team.

• Hofstra's Steve Serling will miss the remainder of the season with a lacerated spleen, coach Seth Tierney said. Serling was injured against Harvard the first weekend in March and has not played since. Serling is out of the hospital and continues to attend practice and support the team. It's too early to tell what affect the injury will have on his future playing career, Tierney said. Serling was drafted in January by MLL's Denver Outlaws.

• After medical evaluations on Monday, Princeton star midfielder Thomas Schreiber, who missed the Tigers' last game against Penn and played sparingly against Villanova after injuring a rib versus North Carolina, will probably play against Yale Saturday. Junior defenseman Jonathan Meyers, who's suffering from a pulled hamstring, is also likely to play. However, senior attackman Jack McBride is reportedly out, and will miss his third game of the season.

• Fairfield junior midfielder Brent Adams is expected back in the next two weeks; he has missed all but the season opener with mononucleosis, coach Andy Copelan said. Adams led the team in goals last year and in scoring as a freshman.

• UMass midfielder Greg Rushing will be out 3-4 weeks with mononucleosis, coach Greg Cannella confirmed after last week's game against Penn State.
