With Maryland leaving the Atlantic Coast Conference for the Big Ten after this season, the Terps could bid farewell to a number of long-standing rivalries. Their series with Virginia (91 games) ranks as the second-longest rivalry in program history, just behind their series with Johns Hopkins (103). After No. 7 Maryland's 9-6 victory over No. 8 Virginia on Sunday, Terps coach John Tillman acknowledged that he would like to keep playing the Cavaliers in the future. “We hope it continues,” he said.

Philadelphia-- --Somehow, someway, Virginia men's lacrosse coach Dom Starsia always seems to slip under the radar. Princeton's Bill Tierney is the defensive genius. Maryland's Dave Cottle is the offensive innovator. Syracuse's John Desko has all those championship rings. And Starsia? He could be just another car salesman. Maybe he likes it that way. While his players were being interviewed after yesterday's 15-7 win over Massachusetts in the NCAA Division I lacrosse championship game, Starsia slipped away for a few minutes.

The last team to win back-to-back NCAA Division I men's lacrosse championships was Syracuse in 2008 and 2009. That fact can be used as motivation for both the defending champion and its opponents during the following year. But every coach would like to be in that situation, coming off a championship. "We tried to embrace the fact that we had earned the right to be defending national champions [rather than run away from it]," said Virginia coach Dom Starsia, who has won four NCAA titles while coaching the Cavaliers.

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. -- Nearly eight years ago, Dom Starsia found out that his twin daughters were retarded. Two years later, one of his lacrosse players at Brown died in his sleep. Another Brown player was killed a year later after being struck by a car.Dom Starsia can't help but preach togetherness."After the second player died, I was pretty hollow. I didn't know what was going on," said Starsia, Virginia's first-year coach whose team will meet No. 6 Johns Hopkins today at Homewood Field.

Duke's bid for an extra year of eligibility for men's lacrosse players isn't sitting well with Dom Starsia, the coach of Atlantic Coast Conference rival Virginia. The Sun reported yesterday that Duke is asking the NCAA to grant the additional year because the team's 2006 season was cut short by the university after rape allegations -- since discredited -- were lodged against three players. Starsia, whose Cavaliers won the 2006 men's title, said that Duke is, in effect, asking the NCAA to bail it out. "I've got some real problems with it. Does Duke University deserve this resolution of the problem, over issues that were kind of self-inflicted?"

This year's NCAA tournament field has spurred controversy as well as instigating some finger-pointing at the selection committee, specifically questioning Virginia coach Dom Starsia's credibility.Starsia, a member of the selection committee, has been singled out because the No. 3 Cavaliers seemingly have the easiest road to the final four, according to several coaches. Virginia will play in the quarterfinals against the winner of No. 6 Delaware and UMBC, who have totaled no playoff wins in one previous NCAA tournament appearance each.

The Virginia Cavaliers, top-ranked and seeded second in the NCAA tournament, have arguably the deepest offense in the land, not to mention a defense that stifles opponents in ways that go unnoticed. Sporting weapons such as outstanding playmaker Conor Gill and consummate finishers such as attackman Drew McKnight and midfielder Jay Jalbert, the Cavaliers begin the postseason defense of their national title in the quarterfinals against Duke today at Homewood Field. In a game that shapes up as a battle of tempo between two familiar Atlantic Coast Conference opponents, Virginia hopes to shake off the rust that might show after nearly three weeks without a game.

Nearly a year ago, Virginia men's lacrosse coach Dom Starsia was happy the season was over. Not only did the Cavaliers go through one of the school's worst seasons in recent history, but Starsia had to endure several personal tragedies. Four persons with whom he had a close relationship died within a year, including his father-in-law, a former teammate at Brown, a former college buddy and another close friend and confidant, longtime Virginia sports information director Doyle Smith. A year after winning the national championship in 2003, Virginia finished 5-8, only the second losing season in the past 38 years.

University of Virginia lacrosse coach Dom Starsia saw something special in goalie Tillman Johnson, even though most others hardly saw Johnson at all when he was a high school junior. Despite starting his sophomore season at St. Mary's High in Annapolis, Johnson rode the bench the following year - the one considered most crucial for college recruiters - in favor of Chris Garrity, now a highly regarded senior at Penn State. Undaunted, Starsia continued to look at Johnson as his goalie of the future.

When a program captured five national championships - most recently in 2011 - it's almost impossible to be ignored. But that's how Virginia has been feeling this season. Despite a 5-1 record, the No. 13 Cavaliers have been coasting through February and March without much media scrutiny or fanfare. And that doesn't bother coach Dom Starsia one bit. “This is a year in which we're better served to be able to work on ourselves for a while before we step out,” he said Friday morning.

During his post-game conference after No. 2 Johns Hopkins's 11-7 victory over No. 7 Syracuse Saturday, coach Dave Pietramala immediately cast the Blue Jays as underdogs for Saturday's road contest against No. 1 Virginia, citing the program's winless drought in Charlottesville, Va., that extends back to 1998. That suggestion drew chuckles from Cavaliers coach Dom Starsia, who joked, “I don't even know why they're coming. What's the point?” Asked whether Pietramala's comment was coachspeak, Starsia replied, “Absolutely.

Like everyone else, Dom Starsia, head coach of No. 1 Virginia, has noticed the number of upsets this season, but he isn't ready to concede that some of the traditional powers won't make it to the Final Four in May as some have suggested. “No question, the number of upsets is unprecedented and speaks directly to the growth of the game and the increased number of good prospects available,” said Starsia. “At the same time, I am not quite ready to concede that this will manifest itself on Memorial Day weekend. Let's reserve judgment.”

It doesn't have the levels of hysteria generated when the Ravens and Pittsburgh Steelers clash or when the Boston Red Sox and New York Yankees meet, but the series between Syracuse and Virginia has been gaining steam in the sport of lacrosse. That's why Friday night's contest at the Carrier Dome in Syracuse, N.Y., is already being called the game of the 2011 season, and it's only early March. "I believe it is the game of the year just because there are two great senior classes on display," ESPN analyst and former Syracuse All-American midfielder Paul Carcaterra said.

FOXBOROUGH, MASS. - Nearly a year ago, Virginia attackman Steele Stanwick lay on a couch in his Roland Park home watching the NCAA Division I men's lacrosse final four on TV. Occasionally, his mind would drift and he would find himself on the playing field ... Stanwick doesn't have to dream anymore. The former Loyola High star will start Saturday for No. 1 seed Virginia as the Cavaliers play Cornell in the semifinals. Stanwick is the latest freshman phenom to play attack at Virginia, joining a list that includes Michael Watson, Conor Gill, Ben Rubeor and Danny Glading.

One day soon, the Division I lacrosse powers might be recruiting middle school players. It sounds impossible, but unless the NCAA does something soon, that's where lacrosse is headed. Loyola High coach Jack Crawford and Boys' Latin coach Bobby Shriver say recruiting is one of the sport's biggest problems. "It's gotten out of hand," Shriver said. In some respects, lacrosse recruiting is worse than big-time college football and basketball because the sport is played in the spring. At least football and basketball players get to play through their senior seasons in high school.
