Most of the current Navy starters were not on the field at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium the last time the Midshipmen played Delaware. That was in 2009, when the home team turned a three-point lead early in the fourth quarter into a deceptive 35-18 victory. Nearly every Navy player was either in high school or attending the academy's prep school back in 2007, when a then-relatively unknown Joe Flacco led the Blue Hens to a wild 59-52 win by scoring at will in the second half. In the case of this year's Navy team, ignorance might not exactly be bliss.

NEWARK, Del. -- Delaware senior faceoff specialist Alex Smith was sorting through his euphoric thoughts Sunday night, hours after the Blue Hens eliminated UMBC to keep this crazy journey going. It still didn't seem real to the Boys' Latin graduate or his teammates. Delaware, which six weeks earlier was in the throes of a losing streak and on postseason life-support, suddenly had turned the Division I men's lacrosse world on its ear. Next stop, an unprecedented trip to the NCAA final four at M&T Bank Stadium, where about 60,000 fans are expected Saturday to watch the Blue Hens try to do the unthinkable again, this time against Johns Hopkins.

Here's the scenario: Navy is winless and coming off a much-needed week off following a loss to Air Force. For homecoming, the Midshipmen will face a nationally ranked, once-beaten Delaware team that is coming off a huge victory over previously unbeaten Division I-AA powerhouse Villanova.Sound familiar?It should, because when Navy (0-5) meets Delaware (5-1, No. 7 in the Division I-AA polls) at 1:30 p.m. today at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium, the teams will be playing under nearly identical circumstances as their meeting a year ago.Then, Navy entered the game 0-6 and built a 25-7 halftime lead.

In 39 years as a head coach, Delaware's Bob Shillinglaw has seen - and consequently, prepared for - many strategies and tactics from opponents. But even he sounded mystified as to why his team failed to score a goal in the second half of Saturday night's 11-8 loss to Colonial Athletic Association rival Towson (7-2, 1-0). The Blue Hens (5-4 overall and 0-2 in the conference) took just six shots in the final two quarters and seemed to be out of sorts against the No. 20 Tigers' zone defense.

Towson holds a 37-17 advantage in its series with Delaware and has won five of the last seven meetings with its Colonial Athletic Association foe. Eight of the last 14 contests in this rivalry have been decided by two goals or less, and the Tigers are 6-2 in those games. Delaware (5-3 overall and 0-1 in the conference) had a four-game winning streak in Saturday's 11-9 loss to Hofstra. Conor Peaks, who replaced then-junior Chris Herbert and started the final started the final seven games of 2013, has started all eight contests thus far. Peaks, a sophomore, has posted a 8.13 goals-against average and a .596 save percentage.

Last season, Towson stumbled its way to a 4-5 record through the non-Colonial Athletic Association portion of its schedule before righting the ship and winning the league tournament to qualify for the NCAA tournament for the first time since 2007. This year, the Tigers are in a vastly different - and stronger - position. No. 20 Towson is 6-2, which is the program's best start since 2001, when that squad opened the season with 10 wins in 12 games. No one is equating what the current group is doing with that 2001 team, but coach Shawn Nadelen said the positive mark is an encouraging sign for the Tigers.

When the Colonial Athletic Association unveiled its preseason poll in January, Penn State and Towson were atop the poll, while Delaware was bringing up the rear. That snub has resonated with the Blue Hens. “I think any team that is picked to be less successful than what they think they can be is going to play with a little chip on their shoulder,” coach Bob Shillinglaw said Wednesday. “Coming back, everybody's trying to work through the season. You're seeing some games where there are some surprises here and there, but I think this team is playing well together.

Delaware's Bob Shillinglaw recently became the first coach in men's college lacrosse to coach 600 career games. The Severna Park native and graduate may not have envisioned such longevity, but he always knew he would be a coach. “I was very, very fortunate,” he said on Wednesday morning. “Very early through high school and college, I made the decision that I wanted to be a coach. Going through my collegiate career, I decided that I really wanted to get into it, the college aspect of it. Right out of North Carolina, I was able to get in as a one-year assistant [at the Massachusetts Maritime Academy]

So did their size up front. He even conceded that they had more talent.Seeded fifth and playing on Delaware's home floor, Towson State went out yesterday and proved Brey right.

Loyola's quest to repeat as national champion begins with a road trip this Saturday to an opponent that has already played two games. Delaware is 1-1, following a season-opening 12-10 win against High Point with a 9-8 loss to No. 17 Bucknell. But more than the Blue Hens' record, Greyhounds coach Charley Toomey is leery about Delaware's head start. “The thing we're always concerned about when we open up with Delaware is that they've got a couple games under their belt,” he said Thursday morning.

The Colonial Athletic Association tournament may have been short on fans, but the four-day event ended in a way organizers surely loved: with a frantic, late-game comeback and an iconic image of fans bounding onto the Baltimore Arena floor in celebration. Conference officials hope that the final scene - of Delaware celebrating its first CAA tournament title and first NCAA tournament berth since 1999 -- will be replayed and endure in the minds of Baltimoreans. They want those final images to help sell the tournament when it returns to Baltimore next season.

As Hofstra coach Joe Mihalich directed the Pride's offense in the early minutes of his team's game with top-seeded Delaware, Blue Hens coach Monte Ross looked on with dismay. The game was less than 10 minutes in, but the fans inside Baltimore Arena could already sense an upset. But in the second-half, it was Mihalich raising his voice on the sideline. Despite falling behind 28-19 10 minutes into the first half, the Blue Hens used an 11-2 run to start the second-half to fend off a pesky Hofstra squad 87-76.
