As the top seed in the Eastern College Athletic Conference tournament, No. 3 Loyola is the favorite to survive the two rounds, capture the tourney, and earn the league's automatic qualifier to the NCAA tournament. But in Wednesday night's semifinal, the Greyhounds (12-1) must first get past No. 9 Denver (8-5), which upset No. 5 Duke, 15-9, last Friday. Coach Charley Toomey said there are no plans to review the Pioneers' win against the Blue Devils with the team. “We really don't have to show that film to talk about respecting Denver,” he said of the two-time reigning conference champion during a conference call Monday of the four coaches participating in the conference tournament.

Hopefully, the Ravens packed some long johns.  It may be unseasonably mild in Baltimore today, but Ravens are facing frigid temperatures and the possibility of light snow when the team goes head-to-head against the Broncos in Denver this afternoon.

As of this morning, the temperature is well below freezing at just 1 degrees in Denver.

For proof of the expanding reach of lacrosse around the globe, look no further than the Federation of International Lacrosse World Championships, which begin Thursday night in the Denver suburbs. A record 38 teams, representing nations from six continents, will take part in the quadrennial event over the next 10 days at Dick's Sporting Goods Park in Commerce City. That's an impressive number for an event that began with only four countries in 1967 and had just six as recently as 1994.

Loyola and Denver will meet in the NCAA tournament for the first time, but it's the third contest in five weeks between the Eastern College Athletic Conference rivals. The top-seeded Greyhounds (15-1) won the first two meetings and have absorbed just one loss at the hands of Johns Hopkins on April 28, but this is their first appearance in a tournament quarterfinal since 2001. The Pioneers (9-6) experienced this stage of the tournament last May when they stunned the Blue Jays to advance to their first Final Four in school history.

•Denver will try to salvage a spot in the NCAA tournament with its game tonight against Duke in the Whitman's Sampler Mile High Classic. But it will also be a showcase for the city and the state on a big stage in a big stadium. NCAA championship officials will be in attendance, and Denver has made it no secret that the city thinks it is ready to host a final four. Officials will be evaluating the city for potential NCAA hosting duties. "We certainly feel like this could send a message to the NCAA," Denver coach Bill Tierney said.

Each week, The Sun has published a Q&A with an area college lacrosse player to get you more acquainted with the player and his/her team. Friday's guest isn't local, but Denver junior attackman Mark Matthews has been drawing attention nationally for his personal success this season, which includes finishing the regular season ranked fourth in Division I in points per game (4.13) and fifth in goals per game (2.73). The sixth-seeded Pioneers meet No. 3 seed Johns Hopkins in the quarterfinals of the NCAA tournament on Saturday.

The Loyola men's basketball team made history this past winter when it qualified for the NCAA tournament for the first time in 18 years. With its 10-9 decision over Denver Saturday, the men's lacrosse team advanced to its first Final Four since 1998. But junior long-stick midfielder Scott Ratliff said the players and coaches aren't content now. “We have a little higher expectation than just making the tournament,” he said. “I think we knew from the very beginning this fall how much we had in this locker room and that we had a good shot to get this program back to the Final Four.” The top-seeded Greyhounds (16-1)

This Saturday, No. 8 Loyola will visit No. 7 Denver in a key showdown that could determine the top seed in the coming Eastern College Athletic Conference tournament. It will mark the third consecutive year that the Greyhounds will have traveled to the metropolitan area affectionately called The Mile High City, and the team is still seeking its first win there. The Pioneers beat Loyola, 12-4, at what used to be known as Invesco Field - the home of the NFL's Broncos - in 2010, and Fairfield delivered a similar result with a 10-9 decision in the semifinal round of last year's league tournament.

Fifth-seeded Denver had faithfully stuck to a goalie rotation, but it was a change in the cage that helped top-seeded and reigning national champion Duke emerge with a 15-12 win in an NCAA tournament semifinal at M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore on Saturday. After sophomore Luke Aaron allowed a goal to sophomore attackman Wesley Berg that allowed the Pioneers to close the gap to 11-10 just 74 seconds into the fourth quarter, the Blue Devils countered by pulling Aaron for junior Kyle Turri.

"A couple more nights in the greatest city in the world. " Those were the words shouted by a Duke player in an M&T Bank Stadium tunnel moments after the Blue Devils' 15-12 victory over Denver in Saturday's NCAA men's lacrosse Final Four matchup. Powered by a resurgent fourth quarter, in which Duke scored three of the game's final four goals, the top-seeded Blue Devils will be able to keep their hotel reservations in Baltimore. They'll spend their second consecutive Memorial Day playing in the national championship, in which they'll face No. 6 seed Notre Dame in a rematch of the 2010 title game.

Reigning national champion Duke owns a slight 4-3 edge in its series with Denver, but this is the first time the teams will meet in the NCAA tournament. The Pioneers are making their third Final Four appearance in four years, while the Blue Devils earned a spot in the national semifinals for the eighth consecutive season and 10th time in program history. Fifth-seeded Denver (16-2) is the hottest team in the postseason, having won 13 consecutive games since a 12-10 loss to Penn on March 1. But the team is seeking its first trip to the NCAA title game.

Denver coach Bill Tierney doesn't think he is a genius, but he has one of the greatest defensive minds in the history of college lacrosse. If there are two head coaches who could come up with a scheme to upset No. 1 seed Duke, they are Johns Hopkins' Dave Pietramala or Tierney. Pietramala had his turn last week, and Duke routed the Blue Jays, 19-11. Tierney gets his turn Saturday in the men's Division I lacrosse semifinals at M&T Bank Stadium. "Coach T had a shot at them earlier in the year and I think they lost, 14-10," said Loyola assistant coach Dave Metzbower, who worked as an assistant for 20 years under Tierney at Princeton.

Denver goalkeepers Ryan LaPlante and Jamie Faus are polar opposites. LaPlante is a native of Fort Collins, Colo. He's a junior communications major known for his happy-go-lucky personality, and he's left-handed. Faus, a senior, is from Lakeville, Conn. He majors in history, which reflects his more serious demeanor, and he's right-handed. Though so much divides them off the field, come game time none of it matters. They're equals. LaPlante starts each game and plays the entire first half.

Denver fans showed more TV loyalty to their Broncos than Baltimore fans did to the Ravens in Thursday night's NFL opener. The 49-27 pounding by the Broncos was seen in 43.9 percent of the TV homes in Denver, while 37.6 of the homes in Baltimore were tuned to the game. And the game was played in Denver, which means the most devoted fans were in the stadium not at home in front of their TVs. Denver was the highest-rated market followed by Baltimore with Indianapolis third (must have been Manning and all those former Colts on the field)

Fifth-seeded Denver has made no secret about its season-long philosophy of rotating goalkeepers Ryan LaPlante and Jamie Faus. Top-seeded and reigning national champion Duke may adopt a similar approach in Saturday's NCAA tournament semifinal against the Pioneers at M&T Bank Stadium. Sophomore Luke Aaron (9.82 goals-against average; .518 save percentage) is slated to make his 17th start of the season, but he looked shaky in the second half of Sunday's 19-11 rout of Johns Hopkins and was pulled in the third quarter in favor of junior Kyle Turri (8.63 goals-against average; .453 save percentage)

Denver coach Bill Tierney has a tongue-in-cheek answer when asked about the team's subpar showing on faceoffs with top-seeded Duke and senior extraordinaire Brendan Fowler awaiting on Saturday. “We're going to prepare the exact same way we prepared for Rutgers, North Carolina and Drexel,” Tierney said Tuesday morning during a conference call before the semifinals at M&T Bank Stadium. “We're going to assume that we're going to lose every faceoff and then go from there.” Clearly, that's not how Tierney truly feels about the fifth-seeded Pioneers' faceoff unit, which has won just 47.3 percent (194-of-410)
