A painful case of shin splints prevented Zach Linkous from playing in UMBC's 14-5 victory over Richmond on March 1 and limited him to a little time during man-up situations in Saturday's 15-8 loss to No. 2 Johns Hopkins, but the senior midfielder bounced back nicely on Tuesday night. Linkous (St. Paul's) recorded two goals and one assist in the Retrievers' 15-6 thumping of Mercer and did not appear to be affected by his injury. “I thought he looked really good,” coach Don Zimmerman said Thursday morning.

Cornell senior attackman Rob Pannell, one of the favorites to win the 2012 Tewaaraton Award before missing most of the season with a broken left foot, has been granted a fifth year of eligibility by the Ivy League. Pannell suffered the injury in the third quarter of the No. 3 Big Red's 18-7 win over Army on March 3. At the time, he was averaging eight points, with seven goals and nine assists in two contests. He underwent surgery, and after weeks of uncertainty about whether he would return,  academically withdrew from Cornell at the end of the semester, leaving open the option of appealing for a fifth year of eligibility.

Junior attackman Thomas DeNapoli's fourth goal of the game with 64 seconds left in overtime propelled Towson to a 9-8 decision over Mercer last Sunday - an outcome that netted the team its first win of the season. But the Tigers (1-3) didn't get much aid from their faceoff specialists. Freshmen Conor Pequigney and Zack Gregory and junior Austin Lyons combined to win just 8-of-20 draws. Pequigney's 1-of-3 outing was especially surprising considering his 10-of-23 effort in a 14-9 loss to then-No.

Mercer released its latest survey of the most expensive cities to live for expatriates. Tokyo is the priciest - last year it was No. 2 - followed by Luanda, Angola, and Osaka, Japan. The United States seems like a bargain. Out of the 214 most expensive cities worldwide, no U.S. city makes the list until New York weighs in as No. 33. Los Angeles is the second priciest city here, coming in 68th worldwide, followed by No. 90 San Francisco. Mercer came up with the list by measuring transportation, food, clothing, entertainment, housing - the latter being the largest expense for those living outside their own country.
