As the 2013 NCAA men's basketball tournament continues, a couple prominent voices have proposed changing how the field of 68 is composed. Former Maryland coach Gary Williams and ESPN analyst Jay Bilas have suggested eliminating automatic qualifiers and simply selecting the top 68 teams for the tournament. That got me thinking: could the same case be made for college lacrosse? Currently, half of the 16-team field in the tournament will be filled with programs that win their respective conference tournaments and the accompanying automatic bids.

Jimmy Patsos' flirtation with the Big Apple turned out to be brief. The Loyola coach said Friday that he declined an offer to join Steve Lavin at St. John's and will remain in Baltimore. "I'm very lucky to be at Loyola, and I really want to coach at Loyola," Patsos said. "I think the future is really bright, and we're on the verge of being really good." Lavin was named St. John's coach on Wednesday. On Thursday, Patsos met with his former boss, Maryland coach Gary Williams, in Indianapolis at the Final Four to gain perspective.

Each year, Division I women's lacrosse shuffles its automatic qualifiers and play-in games based on final RPIs, and this year those changes could most affect Towsonand Navy locally. The winner of Towson's conference, the Colonial Athletic Association, has always received an automatic bid into the 16-team NCAA tournament field. This season, however, the winner must go through a play-in game against the Northeast Conference winner to earn a spot in the 16-team field. Navy's Patriot League would still be in a play-in game, which the Midshipmen hosted and won the past two years, but the winner would now have to travel as far as the West Coast.

The Loyola women's basketball team came up short in its quest for the NCAA tournament Monday, as No. 21 Marist (30-2, 19-0) earned the automatic bid with a 63-45 win over the Greyhounds (20-12, 15-4) in the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference championship game. "We won it the way we've won it all year," Marist coach Brian Giorgis said. "You worry because Loyola always comes back. To be able to not allow that puts a feather on the MAAC season. " Marist shot just 4-for-20 to open the game, allowing Loyola to jump out to a 14-5 lead seven minutes into the first half.
