With a 6-5 win over Navy on Friday night at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium in Annapolis, No. 5 Johns Hopkins won its third game in seven days, and coach Dave Pietramala said afterward that the team is physically exhausted. “Three games in seven days is a lot,” he said. “… I think we need a rest, and I think we need it right now. We made a decision that we would give these guys two days off. Do you want to prepare for [Wednesday's home game vs.] Villanova on two days? No, you don't, but they play tomorrow.

The Naval Academy is full of tough guys. And then there is Navy lacrosse goalie Matt Russell, the ultimate tough guy. He is just one bad dude, all 5 feet 7 and 155 pounds of him. "I like the tough-guy image," Russell said. "I've always tried to be bigger, stronger and faster. If you younger guys look at me and say, `Hey, look at him, he's done it,' then that's good. It's great being one of the leaders on this team." Russell, a senior, will lead the unseeded Midshipmen (11-3) to Georgetown on Sunday for a first-round NCAA Division I tournament playoff game against the No. 8 seed Hoyas (10-2)

Johns Hopkins has dominated this series, winning 59 of 87 meetings. But Navy has won the last two games in Annapolis. The No. 5 Blue Jays (8-3) have won three straight contests after dropping three in a row. Victories over No. 18 Albany on April 4 and No. 6 Maryland on Saturday may have been enough to cement the team's bid for an at-large spot in the NCAA tournament, but a loss Friday could undo those positive vibes. Junior faceoff specialist Drew Kennedy ranks ninth in Division I at 63.6 percent (152-of-239)

Navy was selected fifth in the Patriot League preseason poll based on, in part, a 4-9 overall record and a 2-4 mark in the conference last season. The Midshipmen finished out of the top four in the league and failed to qualify for the conference tournament for the first time in school history. Joe Alberici is well aware of those results, but the Army coach said overlooking Navy under the guidance of new coach Rick Sowell would be a mistake. “The demise of Navy is greatly exaggerated,” Alberici said last week.

Here is the opening installment of a series that checks in with the seven Division I programs in the state to give a glimpse into the past and the future. Teams are scheduled to appear according to the chronological order in which their seasons ended. So Monday begins with a visit with Navy. REVIEW The good: As the Midshipmen learned last year when longtime coach Richie Meade was dismissed, the bottom line is wins and losses. In that department, the team improved from last year's 4-9 record, going 6-6 this season.

There were times in recent seasons when Navy's offense would go weeks without making any huge gaffes. The snaps from center Brady DeMell to quarterbacks Ricky Dobbs and Kriss Proctor would be crisp, and thehandoffs from Dobbs and Proctor to fullbacks Vince Murray and Alexander Teich textbook. Even if the Midshipmen did not run the true triple option, particularly with Dobbs, Navy often played mistake-free. The rushing game was ranked in the top six in each of the last four seasons, including No. 1 in 2008.

With Johns Hopkins moving to the Big Ten for the 2015 season, a schedule that the program could mold and shape will have certain limitations. For one, the Blue Jays must face conference opponents Maryland, Penn State, Ohio State, Rutgers and Michigan, and must keep one weekend open in late April or early May for the league tournament. Other traditional rivalries are on the chopping block, but coach Dave Pietramala confirmed on Thursday that the school's annual showdown with Navy - which will unfold for the 88th time on Friday at 7 p.m. at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium in Annapolis - will be retained.

For a time, it appeared that the Johns Hopkins men's lacrosse team was in a comfortable position to end a run of two straight losses in Annapolis. That comfort, however, didn't materialize until the final buzzer. The No. 5 Blue Jays overcame a lengthy drought on offense and withstood a valiant charge by host Navy to escape with a 6-5 win before an announced 8,655 at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium in Annapolis on Friday night. Johns Hopkins collected its fourth consecutive win and improved to 9-3, but not without some tension in the final minutes of regulation.

Sophomore attackman Ryan Brown did not make his usual start in No. 5 Johns Hopkins' 17-2 thrashing of Mount St. Mary's on Monday. Coach Dave Pietramala was mum about Brown's absence, which  Lacrosse Magazine reported  was caused by a minor injury that the Calvert Hall graduate suffered late in the team's 11-6 victory over No. 6 Maryland on Saturday.  “Ryan didn't play,” Pietramala said on Thursday morning. “He was with the team but did not dress.” Asked whether Brown - the team's leader in goals with 32 this season - would return against Navy (4-7)

It would probably be fair to say that Navy would have preferred a route other than backing into the Patriot League tournament, as it did on Saturday. The team suffered a 14-7 loss to archrival Army, but seized the sixth and final spot in the conference tournament courtesy of Bucknell's 13-1 rout of Lafayette and Colgate's 11-9 decision over Holy Cross. Still, the Midshipmen (4-7 overall and 3-5 in the league) are in the tournament and would love nothing more than to grab a little momentum heading into Tuesday's quarterfinal against Lehigh (10-4, 5-2)

Jamir Tillman learned early on not to overlook life after football. Tillman, a sophomore wide receiver at Navy, heard how his father Cedric began working as an accountant in Las Vegas during a six-year career in the National Football League that ended prematurely because of a back injury. "You never know when your last down of football is going to be," Tillman said. "I know coming here, it's not just about football, it's about your future and about being put around men that are going to develop you as a leader.

Charley Toomey and the rest of the coaching staff at top-ranked Loyola Maryland aren't afraid to try something new. That could help explain why freshman midfielder Romar Dennis got his first start in 11 games, joining redshirt freshman Brian Sherlock and senior Matt Sawyer in Saturday's 7-6 double-overtime decision against Navy. The move bumped sophomore Tyler Albrecht to the second line with senior Kevin Ryan and sophomore Jeff Chase (Boys' Latin). Toomey said the Greyhounds (10-1 overall and 6-0 in the Patriot League)
