COLLEGE PARK -- It has become an annual lacrosse custom.Just when the brackets appear set, the final day of the regular season provides upsets that jumble up the men's playoff picture. Georgetown's victory over Syracuse makes the Nos. 5, 6 and 7 seeds somewhat uncertain, while UMBC's win vs. Maryland probably sorts out the bubble scene. Hofstra's upset of Johns Hopkins solidifies the Flying Dutchmen's chances for a bid but shouldn't hurt Hopkins' seeding.Here's what the tournament might look like when the NCAA tournament selections are announced today at 3: 30 p.m.:Top four seedsLoyola, Johns Hopkins, Virginia and Duke appear locks for first-round byes.

HEMPSTEAD, N.Y. -- When Hofstra beat Towson State, 40-12, last year, Towson coach Gordy Combs pointed to it as the loss that eventually cost the Tigers a I-AA playoff bid.So for Towson, its 24-21 victory over the Flying Dutchmen at Hofstra Stadium last night was not merely payback, but poetic justice. Because the victory almost surely ended Hofstra's run at the I-AA playoffs.Hofstra (7-1) didn't go down without a fight, however. The Flying Dutchmen scored two fourth-quarter touchdowns in a span of 2:31 to pull within 24-21.

Becky Martin will have to wait for her 300th win. Her McDaniel women's basketball team controlled most of the game last night, but Lebanon Valley came back and handed the Green Terror a 62-61 loss. The loss ended a 13 game home-winning streak for McDaniel (4-1). The Flying Dutchmen (5-0) took their first lead with 2:50 remaining on a jump shot by Jennifer Northcott. The Terror fought back to tie it twice, but a combination of missed free throws and an accumulated 31 turnovers ended their chances.

COLLEGE PARK -- The competition is getting better, and so is Maryland.The nation's No. 6 team ripped Hofstra, 89-59, before a sellout crowd of 14,500 at Cole Field House last night, and that was not another cupcake Obinna Ekezie, Terence Morris and company devoured. The Flying Dutchmen themselves are thinking along the lines of an NCAA bid."In my five years at Villanova and two at UNLV, that's as good a team as I've seen," said coach Jay Wright, who began his fifth season at Hofstra. "Looking back, I wish we didn't play them in our first game, not that it would be a different outcome later.

HEMPSTEAD, N.Y. -- The Johns Hopkins men's lacrosse team craved redemption.But the Blue Jays' hunger didn't revolve around overtime losses that ended their previous two seasons in the NCAA quarterfinals or restoring their program to final four prominence. Yesterday, the motive was more personal and immediate.Redeeming itself after an embarrassing loss at Hofstra only two weeks ago, No. 2 Hopkins made the plays in the second half instead of fumbling them, advancing to its first final four since 1996 with an 11-7 victory over the No. 7 Flying Dutchmen at Hofstra Stadium.

It was nearly enough for the University of Maryland Baltimore County last night.Nearly, but not quite.The Retrievers, who spent the past two weeks away from the UMBC Fieldhouse trying to break a long losing streak, came close to ending it before losing to Hofstra, 69-63, for their 13th consecutive defeat.The victory was the fourth straight for the Flying Dutchmen (8-7 overall, 3-0 in the East Coast Conference)

No. 2 Loyola once again showed that it's easier to contain the Greyhounds than defeat them.Hofstra took Loyola out of its fast-break offense for three quarters, used the same one-on-one offensive set that it used to beat Loyola last year and had 11 man-advantage opportunities to keep the game at its slow tempo.Scoring four straight goals in a 2:19 stretch late in the fourth quarter, Loyola turned away No. 14 Hofstra, 13-10, before 1,521 at Curley Field. With top-ranked Princeton losing yesterday, Loyola (7-0)

Dick Watts, coach of University of Maryland Baltimore County expected his Retrievers to have an edge over visiting Hofstra, which was coming off the artificial turf to play at UMBC Stadium yesterday. But the edge didn't make itself apparent.The Flying Dutchmen (2-0) controlled the game early, staved off a spurt by UMBC (1-1) midway through the first half and pulled away in the second half for a 12-8 East Coast Conference lacrosse victory."I thought we'd have a definite advantage playing on the dirt with Hofstra coming off the [turf]
