Like everyone else, Dom Starsia, head coach of No. 1 Virginia, has noticed the number of upsets this season, but he isn't ready to concede that some of the traditional powers won't make it to the Final Four in May as some have suggested. “No question, the number of upsets is unprecedented and speaks directly to the growth of the game and the increased number of good prospects available,” said Starsia. “At the same time, I am not quite ready to concede that this will manifest itself on Memorial Day weekend. Let's reserve judgment.”

With No. 9 Johns Hopkins' 14-5 dismantling of visiting Michigan on Saturday , Dave Pietramala joined some rare company. Pietrmala became only the sixth Division I coach to win 150 games at one school. Pietramala, who is 150-50 in 14 seasons with the Blue Jays, joined Delaware's Bob Shillinglaw (283 wins), Virginia's Dom Starsia (252), Notre Dame's Kevin Corrigan (242), Syracuse's John Desko (189) and Massachusetts' Greg Cannella (174). Asked about the achievement on Wednesday morning, Pietramala was self-deprecating, per usual.

The last team to win back-to-back NCAA Division I men's lacrosse championships was Syracuse in 2008 and 2009. That fact can be used as motivation for both the defending champion and its opponents during the following year. But every coach would like to be in that situation, coming off a championship. "We tried to embrace the fact that we had earned the right to be defending national champions [rather than run away from it]," said Virginia coach Dom Starsia, who has won four NCAA titles while coaching the Cavaliers.

The men's lacrosse coach at University of Virginia, Dom Starsia, will make $250,000 in annual compensation ("UVa. men's lax coach Starsia gets 5-year deal," Feb. 21), despite the evidence of alcohol abuse among many of his players revealed in the murder trial of one of his former players, George Huguely. I find it utterly disgraceful and incomprehensible that this man continues to have a job. As we all know when other universities' have faced such disgrace and embarrassment (Penn State, Syracuse, Duke)

No. 1 Virginia's 9-8 overtime win against No. 3 Cornell at the Konica Minolta Face-Off Classic at M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore wrapped up a three-week stretch during which the Cavaliers won all seven contests. In addition to four Saturday games, the team also played three Tuesday contests. Senior attackman Steele Stanwick acknowledged that the schedule can be tough on the players and tests their physical conditioning. “It's definitely a bit of a grind, but it's kind of a fun time for the players to have those midweek games,” the Baltimore native and Loyola graduate said.

Days after Virginia had captured the program's fifth NCAA title on Memorial Day weekend, coach Dom Starsia gathered the players together and attempted to brace them for the impending talk - and accompanying pressure - of the Cavaliers being the favorite to repeat as national champions. “I told the kids to smile about this for a little bit,” Starsia recalled. “We're proud that we won. We're always ranked pretty highly to begin with. So it is what it is. We're not shirking away from the responsibility of the accountability of it all. But at the same time, it's hard.

Steele Stanwick, a two-time Towson Times/Baltimore Messenger Player of the Year and the reigning Tewaaraton Award winner, has given University of Virginia coach Dom Starsia plenty of reasons to praise him during his four-year career in Charlottesville. On Saturday, the Loyola Blakefield grad gave his coach a couple of hundred more when he joined the elite 100/100 club in Division I lacrosse as the top-ranked Cavaliers (3-0) dismissed Stony Brook, 12-5, at Klöckner Stadium. The senior attackman scored two goals and added three assists to become the third Cavalier, the seventh player in the ACC and the 44th player in the nation all-time to register 100 career goals and 100 career assists at the Division-I level.

Virginia's 8-0 start has cemented the reigning national champion's perch atop the rankings in every poll. But there is an undercurrent of concern about the team's slow starts in games this season. The Cavaliers trailed at halftime against Drexel and No. 7 Syracuse, were tied at intermission with No. 3 Cornell, and found themselves in a 6-1 hole after the first quarter against Ohio State. Virginia rallied in each of those contests and emerged with victories, but coach Dom Starsia conceded that the team must get out of the gates faster, especially with No. 2 Johns Hopkins visiting Charlottesville, Va., on Saturday.

Virginia coach Dom Starsia has always hedged a little over talk of parity in college lacrosse, but he is slowly crossing over. Lacrosse is becoming more like the NFL. There are consistent winners every year, but the team that gets hot at the end has a good shot at winning the title. No. 3 Duke is on the comeback trail after a slow start. No. 12 Johns Hopkins had a strong rebound performance against Virginia a week ago. And the No. 13 Cavaliers (5-4) don't have a signature win all season.

When a program captured five national championships - most recently in 2011 - it's almost impossible to be ignored. But that's how Virginia has been feeling this season. Despite a 5-1 record, the No. 13 Cavaliers have been coasting through February and March without much media scrutiny or fanfare. And that doesn't bother coach Dom Starsia one bit. “This is a year in which we're better served to be able to work on ourselves for a while before we step out,” he said Friday morning.

During his post-game conference after No. 2 Johns Hopkins's 11-7 victory over No. 7 Syracuse Saturday, coach Dave Pietramala immediately cast the Blue Jays as underdogs for Saturday's road contest against No. 1 Virginia, citing the program's winless drought in Charlottesville, Va., that extends back to 1998. That suggestion drew chuckles from Cavaliers coach Dom Starsia, who joked, “I don't even know why they're coming. What's the point?” Asked whether Pietramala's comment was coachspeak, Starsia replied, “Absolutely.

Big-stage events such as theKonica MinoltaFace-Off Classicat M&T Bank Stadium are usually a showcase for explosive offenses and highlight-reel goals. But four of the six participants at Saturday's Classic feature a defenseman who has been an All-American, and one of the other teams has a player who was on pace for a similar honor in 2011 before a season-ending shoulder injury. That's how important Johns Hopkins junior Tucker Durkin, Virginia redshirt senior Matt Lovejoy, North Carolina senior Charlie McComas , Cornell junior Jason Noble and Princeton senior Chad Wiedmaier are to their respective teams.

Virginia's 14-10 victory over No. 11 Syracuse would usually be cause for celebration as it represents a significant win against the Division I program with the most national championships. But as coach Dom Starsia pointed out Tuesday, the No. 1 Cavaliers (5-0) have split meetings with the Orange in the years that Virginia captured the NCAA title. “So the result doesn't affect the plans or goals of either one of the two teams,” he said. “But it's a great measure early in the year of where we are. This is a team that can make you pay for mistakes, and they did that on Sunday.
