Friday's contest may be the last meeting between these schools for quite a while due to Maryland athletic director Kevin Anderson's ultimatum, but that won't dilute the emotion in this cross-town rivalry.

Here are a few factors that could play a role in the outcome. 1) Georgetown's attack. This unit not only graduated its top playmaker in attackman Rickey Mirabito (16 goals and 30 assists)

The final numbers from No. 8 Maryland's 16-11 victory over Georgetown Friday night showed that the Terps collected just four more ground balls than the host Hoyas did. But that was of little consolation to Georgetown coach Dave Urick. “We need to get tougher when it's on the ground,” he said in his post-game comments. “We need to be able to assert ourselves a little bit more.” Then again, Maryland has a habit of befuddling opponents when it comes to collecting groundballs.

Minutes after No. 15 Loyola had put the finishing touches on a convincing 13-8 victory over host Georgetown at Multi-Sport Field Wednesday night in Washington, D.C., Josh Hawkins appeared barely winded. But looks can be deceiving. “My calves started going by the end of the game,” the senior short-stick defensive midfielder said as a wave of relief passed over his face. “I'm dead. I need an ice bath or something. I'm tired.” Hawkins expended himself against the Hoyas in his first contest since sitting out the first six games of the season for violating an unspecified team rule, and the Greyhounds (5-2)

Kevin Warne, who as an assistant coach helped guide Maryland to the national title game the past two seasons, was named Georgetown men's lacrosse head coach Tuesday. Warne takes over for Dave Urick, who went 223-99 in 23 seasons before retiring in July. The Hoyas have not reached the NCAA tournament since 2007. In two years with the Terps, Warne served as defensive coordinator and cemented his reputation as one of the top defensive coaches in the game. "I'm really excited to name Kevin Warne as head coach for our men's lacrosse program," Georgetown director of intercollegiate athletics Lee Reed said in a news release.

Maryland athletic director Kevin Anderson's statement earlier in the week that the school won't compete against Georgetown in any sport until their respective men's basketball teams meet in the regular season will impact the cross-town rivalry between the lacrosse programs. The Terps and Hoyas have met annually on the lacrosse field since 2003, and Maryland has owned the series, 9-2. But the rivalry could end after Friday night's contest at Multi-Sport Field in Washington, D.C. Terps coach John Tillman was philosophical about the potential loss of a traditionally strong opponent from the team's schedule.

Maryland coach John Tillman did not have a definitive answer on whether junior attackman Owen Blye will be able to play against Georgetown Friday night. Blye, who tied senior Joe Cummings as the team's leading scorer from last season with 31 points, did not finish Saturday's 12-6 victory over No. 19 Hartford due to an unspecified injury. Blye's absence was mitigated by the play of freshman Jay Carlson who scored two goals, freshman Rustin Bryant who scored once, and sophomore Sean McGuire who assisted on one of Carlson's goals.

Syracuse midfielder Jordan Evans - Inside Lacrosse's top incoming freshman - and midfielder-attackman Randy Staats are questionable for Saturday's game against Johns Hopkins with lower-body injuries. A source close to the team said neither injury involves a knee and neither appears to be season-ending. Neither player participated in Saturday's 14-8 victory over St. John's. The Orange continues to struggle at the faceoff X and experience growing pains with a young defense, weaknesses that must be erased immediately considering the schedule.
