Having emerged as the top playmaker for No. 8 Johns Hopkins, Zach Palmer's most lasting play was the one-handed, wraparound goal he scored in the team's 11-10 overtime win against then-No. 1 Virginia on March 24. That play symbolized the independence with which Palmer, a natural lefty who curled around the left post and tossed the ball into the net with his right hand, has been granted by the Blue Jays coaching staff. “I think I'm more apt to be creative,” Palmer said, adding that he had never attempted that shot in practice or in a game.

The Atlantic Sun Conference's addition of men's lacrosse means another automatic qualifier for the 2014 NCAA tournament. And, it means more than half the tournament will be AQs, which is not allowed according to NCAA Bylaw 31.3.4.7.1. The Atlantic Sun's team would be the ninth AQ in the 16-team field. A play-in game is a potential solution, but the NCAA has drited away from such arrangements. NCAA tournament expansion could be the next step. "The NCAA isn't big on play-ins anymore - rowing, field hockey and women's lacrosse are all heading that direction," said Jim Siedliski , the Big East Conference associate commissioner for Olympic sports and newly named chair of the NCAA Men's Lacrosse Championship Committee.

Lacrosse, for the Gait twins, has come full circle.When they first picked up lacrosse sticks in their native British Columbia, Gary and Paul Gait were all of 4 years old. Canada's national game was, and still is, box lacrosse, the six-a-side version played in hockey rinks.It was in box lacrosse that Syracuse coach Roy Simmons found the Gaits, and the rest, as they say, is history. The twins led Syracuse to three straight NCAA championships and were acclaimed by many as the best ever to play the field game.

Opponents might not see as much of Maryland lacrosse standout Grant Catalino as in the past, but that might not be as comforting to them as it sounds. Catalino, a junior attackman, shed about 20 pounds in the offseason to improve his conditioning. The 6-foot-4 Catalino, who said he weighs about 225 pounds, is committed to helping a Terps program that has recently fallen short of expectations. "Year to year, it's pretty much the same," he said. "We've got the big goal in mind, trying to get to the final four and the national championship.
