College lacrosse games of the week

MEN

No. 13 Bucknell (9-2) at No. 15 Army (7-3)

Saturday, 12

Outlook: With a 3-0 record in the Patriot League, the visiting Bison are tied with No. 14 Colgate for first place. Bucknell has relied on the senior duo of midfielder Ryan Klipstein (22 goals, 12 assists) and attackman Mike Danylyshyn (13, 14) to power the offense. The host Black Knights, who are 2-1 in the league, welcomed back Bill Henderson from an illness after a five-game absence, but the senior defenseman appeared rusty in Army's 13-11 loss to Colgate on Saturday.

WOMEN

North Carolina (10-2) at No. 1 Maryland (12-0)

Saturday, 12 p.m.

Outlook: The Terrapins are 22-0 since falling to the Tar Heels, 13-9, on April 10 last year. The Terps are 43-2 since May 2008; North Carolina dealt them both defeats, although Maryland leads the series, 16-9. Look for defense to be the key for the Tar Heels against a potent, balanced Terps attack that averages a Division I-best 16.75 goals.
