"Big Red: Three Months On Board a Trident Nuclear Submarine," by Douglas C. Waller. HarperCollins. 336 pages. $27.50. By any measure, it stands among the greatest marvels of human invention in history -- a ship as long as a 56-story building is high, as wide as a three-lane highway and capable of traveling underwater for months at a time. It makes its own drinking water, oxygen, heat and electricity for a crew of 160 men. Fully provisioned, it is completely self-sufficient -- whether under the polar ice cap or in the middle of the open sea. Oh, yes, and there's this: It carries 1,560 tons of nuclear missiles in its belly that could quite readily incinerate at least 14.5 million people, injure at least three times that many more and flatten a piece of the globe many thousands of square miles wide.

COLLEGE PARK - Goran Murray has had better days. The junior is Maryland's best close defenseman, but he had a rough outing in the seventh-seeded Terps' 8-7 win over Cornell in an NCAA tournament first-round game at Byrd Stadium on Saturday. Junior attackman Matt Donovan scored all three of his goals against Murray and recorded his lone assist when he lost Murray behind the cage and fed senior attackman Dan Lintner for a goal in the fourth quarter. But Maryland coach John Tillman noted that Murray forced Donovan into a turnover later in the period that helped the team win the time-of-possession battle.

Big red is right. This blend of zinfandel, cabernet sauvignon and valdiguie packs a wallop as it delivers a mouthful of spicy, robust, meaty flavors with hints of chocolate, blueberry and tomato. It's a little rustic, but graceful nevertheless, like a man who can wear cowboy boots with a tux and carry it off.

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. - When it comes to overall depth, few teams can match Syracuse, and that will be the major factor in today's Division I championship game between No. 2 seed Syracuse and No. 5 Cornell. Syracuse (15-2) is loaded with talent, and the Orange loves to rotate players, even on attack. Cornell's first group can match Syracuse's first group, but after that the Orange has a major advantage. If Cornell (13-3) can control Syracuse on the transition and the pace of the game, then the Big Red has a shot.

A year ago, the Cornell men's lacrosse team watched the NCAA tournament quarterfinals on television, and coach Jeff Tambroni told one of his players in a text message that they had to avoid spending another May at home. Max Seibald's response: "I don't plan on it." The standout senior midfielder has been true to his word, carrying the Big Red to its second semifinal appearance in three seasons.

A sore ankle did not prevent Mike Chanenchuk from delivering for the Maryland men's lacrosse team. The senior attackman's goal with two seconds left in the fourth quarter propelled the seventh-seeded Terps to an 8-7 win over Cornell in an NCAA tournament first-round game at Byrd Stadium on Saturday. That score gave Maryland its first lead of the game and was enough to help the team advance to a quarterfinal at Hofstra on Saturday; it will face the winner of Sunday night's first-round contest between Bryant and second-seeded Syracuse.

Maryland has won 13 of 16 meetings in this series, but Cornell has enjoyed better success in the NCAA tournament with three wins in four games. The Terps are 7-0 at home this season and 9-1 against the Big Red in College Park; that loss occurred at home in the first round of last year's NCAA tournament. Cornell (11-4) opened the year with nine straight victories but has gone just 2-4 since then. The Big Red is 2-3 against teams that qualified for the NCAA tournament. An offense ranked seventh in Division I at 13.1 goals per game has been paced by senior attackman Dan Lintner, who ranks sixth in the country with 46 goals, and junior attackman Matt Donovan, who leads the team in both assists (22)

When Cornell's lacrosse program was going through troubled times last fall and the early part of the winter, interim head coach Matt Kerwick's mind shot back to the summer of 2012. On June 25 that year, Kerwick pleaded guilty to a DWI charge in a Fairfax County, Va., court while he was an assistant at Georgetown. "Last year when I spoke with the team, I told them we all make mistakes," said Kerwick, who replaced Ben DeLuca in November 2013 after a hazing incident at Cornell. "I told them how I had learned so much from my mistake and it helped me grow as a person.

Nelson was called for holding on the Tigers' Matt Eckerl during the ensuing faceoff, but Cornell goalie Matt McMonagle stopped Nick Williams' high shot as time expired setting off a celebration by Big Red players.
