Inside Lacrosse: Notes from across the nation

April 21, 2011

• Roanoke College attackman Brendan Nizolek faces two counts of assault and has been suspended from the team after a pair of off-campus incidents, Inside Lacrosse confirmed Tuesday with coach Bill Pilat. Also, in an unrelated incident, senior midfielder Trey Keeley was suspended indefinitely from the team for unspecified reasons, according to Pilat. Keeley was second on the team in points with 22 goals and 24 assists. Reid Mayberry has also been removed from the roster for cause unknown.

• One of the Binghamton players who was suspended from school as a result of an off-field incident in March has been reinstated to the university and cleared of wrongdoing after a student conduct hearing, former coach Ed Stephenson and parents on the team confirmed. "From the very begininng we knew he wasn't involved in anything," Stephenson said. "Hopefully that will prompt them to change their procedures in the athletic department." The incident led to three lacrosse players being suspended from the university and Stephenson resigning his position after he felt the school did not follow the appropriate protocol.

• Northwestern (12-2) tops the list of the first women's RPI of the season, followed by Maryland, Florida, Duke and Loyola. The Gators ended last season at No. 22. The data is through Sunday, so the upset win by Georgetown (No. 21 RPI) over the Greyhounds Tuesday is not accounted for in the data.

• Teams better hope that Dartmouth does not make it to the NCAA quarterfinals in Foxborough, Mass. Dartmouth goalie Fergus Cambell, a junior, continued a remarkable run in games played at Gillette Stadium. In his team's 8-4 loss to Princeton in the New England Lacrosse Classic on Saturday, Campbell made 17 saves. He had made 23 saves in an NELC win over Cornell last year. In two games at Gillette Stadium, Campbell has made 40 saves and has given up 14 goals (.741 save percentage).

• Calvert Hall has risen two spot to No. 3 in the Under Armour/Inside Lacrosse Power Rankings after beating Loyola and St. Paul's. McDonogh fell to No. 11 from No. 7 after a loss to Gilman. St. Paul's fell to No. 18, and St. Mary's is at No. 24.
