Maryland men's lacrosse head coach John Tillman confirmed Friday that Navy offensive coordinator J.L. Reppert has agreed to take the same position with the Terps. “I'm excited to have a guy like J.L. come to our program,” Tillman said. “Because of the type of leader and mentor and coach he is, to work with our young people is going to be great for our program. He's a guy that I feel very comfortable with. I've known him for almost 20 years. So there's a lot of comfort in terms of knowing what he's all about, his knowledge of the game, our ability to work well together.

— Maryland's new lacrosse coach raised some eyebrows while meeting his players last summer. "Wow, you coached at Harvard ?" they said. "You must be smart. " Maybe not, John Tillman replied: "When I was a kid, I liked to eat dirt. " There's truth to that. As a player, Tillman had to scrap just to get into the lineup. A walk-on at Cornell, he never started, played in 12 contests overall and lettered once, as a senior. He played three positions in college, reinventing himself time and again in an effort to launch his career.

One might think that seventh-seeded Duke's 16-10 rout of top-seeded Syracuse in last week's NCAA tournament final at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia would not sit well with the Blue Devils' Atlantic Coast Conference rivals - especially a Maryland squad that had lodged a 16-7 thrashing that was Duke's worst loss since May 23, 2009 when the team was manhandled, 17-7, by Syracuse in the Final Four that year. But Terps coach John Tillman said he harbors no ill will towards the Blue Devils for capturing their second national crown in four seasons.

Yale's recent success - an 8-2 record and the No. 14 spot in The Sun's rankings - should not be that shocking considering that the program earned a share of the Ivy League regular-season championship in 2010 and captured the conference tournament last year to advance to the NCAA tournament. The Bulldogs' emergence is certainly not a surprise to Maryland coach John Tillman, who occupied the same position at Harvard - an Ivy League rival of Yale's - from 2008 to 2010.

In his first start on attack, freshman Connor Cannizzaro had two goals and one assist in No. 6 Maryland's 9-6 victory over No. 7 Virginia on Sunday. Cannizzaro, who had started the previous eight games in the midfield, outperformed usual starting attackmen Matt Rambo (one goal) and Tim Rotanz (zero points). But coach John Tillman wouldn't say Tuesday whether that trio would start again Wednesday against Robert Morris (4-5) or any other opponent this season. “I think it will be game-by-game,” Tillman said.

Despite being the top seed in the Ivy League tournament, Cornell was stunned, 14-13, in overtime by No. 12 Princeton. That result cost the Big Red one of the eight seeds in the NCAA tournament and the right to host a home game in the first round. No. 2 Cornell (12-3) will visit No. 11 and sixth-seeded Maryland (10-3) at Byrd Stadium in College Park this Sunday, but Terps coach John Tillman is not as concerned about the Big Red's last outing as he is about that team's entire season.

The Loyola Maryland lacrosse program has filled its vacant offensive coordinator position by hiring Maryland assistant Ryan Moran. The Terps averaged double digits in goals in each of Moran's six seasons on staff, including 11.4 goals per game en route to the No. 18 national ranking in Division I this past spring. Maryland advanced to three Final Fours in the past four seasons and went to the NCAA final in 2011 and 2012. After the 2012 season, Moran was promoted to offensive coordinator and associate head coach under John Tillman.

At 5 feet 8, 170 pounds, Notre Dame's Matt Kavanagh was one of the smallest players on the field Saturday in his team's semifinal matchup with No. 7 seed Maryland, which has the nation's top-ranked scoring defense. But the sophomore attackman's stats from the game showed just how big he can be. Kavanagh had a game-high five goals as well as two assists to drive the sixth-seeded Fighting Irish into the Memorial Day championship game against No. 1 Duke with an 11-6 win against the Terps . Heading into the game, Kavanagh had the most points by a Notre Dame player since 2001 and was the only player in program history to record 30 goals and 30 assists in a season.

In coach John Tillman's four-year tenure, the Maryland men's lacrosse team had twice reached the national semifinals, and each time it moved on to the title game. A third such trip did not materialize Saturday as sophomore attackman Matt Kavanagh recorded a game-high seven points on five goals and two assists to propel sixth-seeded Notre Dame to an 11-6 victory over the seventh-seeded Terps in an NCAA tournament semifinal before an announced 30,428 at M&T Bank Stadium.

There's a long list of goalies who have played for the Maryland men's lacrosse team without winning the sport's ultimate prize. Niko Amato doesn't want that list to grow this weekend. Amato is only the second starting goalkeeper in program history to guide his team to three Final Fours in four years. But Jake Reed is the only one to have been on national championship teams (1973 and 1975), and if Amato and the Terps don't end the school's title drought, Amato will join a group that includes Brian Dougherty, Kevin O'Leary and Brian Phipps.

The season has yet to begin, and Maryland has participated in only a couple preseason scrimmages, but John Tillman is cautiously optimistic about what he has seen thus far. At the same time, the Terps coach is realistic enough to know that the current group of players is far from looking like a finished product and will make its fair share of mistakes in Saturday's season opener against Mount St. Mary's at noon at Byrd Stadium. “I think in the last two weeks, we've gotten better, we've learned a lot more about ourselves,” he said Tuesday morning.
