OK, can I just say something crazy? Maybe it's the party talking or the chocolate fondue, but these Navy baseball players lip syncing "Love is an Open Door" from "Frozen" wins the Internet.  Sure, you might be sick of hearing the kids shriek the lyrics to the song's from this winter's Disney hit, but you can't watch this video without cracking a smile.

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.

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)

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.

No suspense remains for Navy's hopes of qualifying for its first NCAA tournament since 2009. The team must win three games in the Patriot League tournament, beginning with Tuesday's quarterfinal at Lehigh. With a 4-8 record, the Midshipmen have no shot at an at-large bid, but coach Rick Sowell insisted that there is no talk about anything beyond Tuesday's game. “Right now, it's Lehigh,” he said Monday afternoon. “You win, you advance. You lose, you go home. At this point, any conversation about winning three games, that just hasn't come up. That's not our focus at this point in time.

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)

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.

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.

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)
