If there's one lesson Maryland coach Cathy Reese took out of her team's narrow loss last weekend to Duke, it was that her fourth-ranked Terrapins - who start four freshmen and lack experience on defense - can't afford to miss prime scoring chances. "We had a ton of opportunities and we needed to capitalize on them," Reese said. "We needed to step it up in this game. " Maryland did just that in a 12-9 win over No. 6 Virginia at home on Friday, scoring on seven of their nine shots in the second half.

Lacrosse is one of the oldest team sports in North America, with its origin dating back to the 1400s. Native Americans originally played the game, known then as "baggataway," with hundreds and sometimes thousands of players, and often women and men competed together on the same team. These massive games would last two to three days and often the goals were miles apart. It was not until the early 1800s that French settlers started adopting the game. Lacrosse is a combination of basketball, soccer and hockey, and the game uses the same principles of the early game.
