In March, White led the No. 3 Millers to their first state title since 2008 and the best record in school history, 26-1.

- Once Maryland's women's lacrosse team gets going in transition, it is hard to slow down. Georgetown's players knew that, and Wednesday night they stopped the No. 3 Terrapins - for a little while. After the No. 8 Hoyas took an early three-goal lead, Maryland kicked in that transition game and scored five straight goals to take the lead for good en route to a 20-11 victory at Maryland's Field Hockey and Lacrosse Complex. The Hoyas (2-3) won most of the early draws and scored three goals before the Terps (7-0)

The fifth-seeded Georgetown women's basketball team was plenty vocal in the days leading up to its second-round NCAA tournament game against Maryland. The Hoyas brashly dismissed their opponent's tradition as inconsequential and proclaimed a shift was at hand in area women's basketball supremacy. On Tuesday night, Georgetown presented a most convincing case on the home court of the 2006 national champions, rattling the fourth-seeded Terrapins with relentless pressure and getting another dazzling performance from Sugar Rodgers in a 79-57 dismantling before an announced 4,493 at Comcast Center.

Trailing by four goals after a listless first half, the Maryland men's lacrosse team needed a spark against Georgetown. The Terps got one from a player who had been frustrated by the Hoyas. Senior Will Yeatman scored all three of his goals in the second half to key a 7-0 run that propelled No. 7 Maryland to a 15-13 win against No. 9 Georgetown at Multi-Sport Field here on Saturday. Yeatman, who had been shut out by the Hoyas in last year's 13-10 Georgetown victory, estimated that he did not take a single shot against the Hoyas in the first half.

Junior midfielder Max Pfeifer scored with 2:33 remaining to give the second-ranked Notre Dame men's lacrosse team a 7-6 victory over visiting Georgetown on Sunday in a game that neither team led by more than a goal.

The Irish (8-0 overall, 3-0 Big East) got two goals each from junior attackman Sean Rogers and senior midfielder David Earl and stymied a Hoyas offense that had been averaging nearly 12 goals.

Georgetown knows all about Maya Moore and Connecticut's rich postseason history, and the Hoyas were determined to rock the bracket with one of the NCAA tournament's biggest upsets ever. Backed into a corner, Moore got some help from fellow senior Lorin Dixon and the Huskies responded. Moore had 23 points and 14 rebounds, leading Connecticut (35-1) to a 68-63 victory in Philadelphia after the Hoyas (24-11) led by seven in the second half of their regional semifinal Sunday. "Me and Maya decided we didn't want our careers to end here today," Dixon said.

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.

LANDOVER -- The last time Maryland and Georgetown played, ESPN was a fledgling sports cable network with a rookie college basketball analyst named Dick Vitale, Gary Williams was in his second year as a Division I coach at American University and many of the current players were barely out of kindergarten.The last time Maryland and Georgetown played, in the Sweet 16 of the 1980 NCAA tournament, the more established Terrapins lost to the up-and-coming Hoyas at The Spectrum in Philadelphia. It was Maryland's second defeat that season to Georgetown, and the rivalry ended amid angry words between the two head coaches, John Thompson and Lefty Driesell.

As the Indiana players hooted and hollered at midfield, celebrating a 1-0 victory over Georgetown on Sunday for their eighth NCAA men's soccer championship, the Hoyas began to come to terms with the end of a wondrous season. Goalkeeper Tomas Gomez fell face-first, not a soul within 30 yards. Defender Tommy Muller sat on the field, running through his mind the last-minute header that had struck the intersection of the crossbar and right post. Brian Wiese, who had guided a middling program to a record number of victories and its first College Cup appearance, consoled his players, one by one, from sideline to penalty area.

Late in the fourth quarter of Mount St. Mary's' eventual 10-4 loss to Georgetown on Wednesday, goalkeeper Chris Klaiber was trying to initiate a clear, but was under heavy duress by a Hoyas player. Junior defenseman Kyle O'Brien took it upon himself to take out the player, which drew a one-minute penalty for slashing but also earned Klaiber's thanks. One might say that Klaiber warranted some assistance after the senior made a game-high 20 saves for the Mountaineers (0-2). Thirteen of those stops occurred in the first half.
