College lacrosse: Men's and women's games of the week

May 05, 2011


No. 3 Notre Dame (10-1) at No. 8 North Carolina (9-5)

Friday, 8

Outlook: North Carolina leads this series, 5-4, but Notre Dame has won three of the past five meetings. The Fighting Irish is ranked second in Division I in defense, but they coughed up a season-worst 11 goals in a three-goal loss to No. 1 Syracuse last Saturday. Freshman attackman Nicky Galasso is tied for seventh nationally in points per game (3.8), but the Tar Heels haven't played since April 22.


Quinnipiac (13-4) at Navy (14-5)

Saturday, noon

Outlook: Coming off their second straight Patriot League championship, the Midshipmen will be looking for another trip to the NCAA Tournament when they play the first-time Northeast Conference-champion Bobcats in a tournament play-in game.
