In the midst of the mass exodus that saw five players with remaining eligibility leave Maryland this past spring, Mark Turgeon took a high-profile matchup Dec. 8 against Villanova in the Jimmy V Classic at New York's Madison Square Garden off the 2014-15 schedule. At the time, Turgeon cited a “scheduling conflict” as the reason. It was more the uncertainty of what kind of team the Terps were going to put on the court after a 17-15 season, the most disappointing year in the short Turgeon Era and one of the most underachieving by Maryland in memory.

Favorites 7, underdogs 1. For all of the talk about parity in college lacrosse, seven of the top eight seeds in the NCAA tournament advanced to the quarterfinals, and Maryland's 7-3 decision against No. 7 seed Notre Dame was not considered a shocker in some circles. (More on that later.) Of the seven programs that have won national championships in the 38-year tournament history, all seven - Syracuse, Johns Hopkins, Princeton, Virginia, North Carolina, Cornell and Maryland - are still alive.

The prospect of an NCAA tournament final has taken a back seat to another type of final for the Colgate and Canisius men's lacrosse teams. Players of both programs have been wrapping up a week of exams, and after hours of studying, memorizing and writing, the idea of ridding their angst and stress in an NCAA tournament first-round game sounds awfully appetizing. "It's exam week here at Colgate, so everyone's nerves are already high," said Raiders junior defenseman Andrew Watkins, a Timonium native and Gilman graduate.

Due in part to the single-game elimination aspect of the NCAA tournament, it wouldn't seem far-fetched for teams that advance deep into the tourney to become more conservative. A review of the last 13 national champions shows that only one matched or exceeded its season average in scoring with its final performance in the national title game. That was the 2007 Johns Hopkins squad, which averaged 10.4 goals and scored 12 in a one-goal decision over Duke. Several teams were close.

More isn't better Paul Doyle Harford Courant Talk of a 96-team tournament had us all irritated at the NCAA. So the announcement that the tournament will expand only to 68 teams — for now — has been met with approval. Adding three teams won't change the dynamic of the tournament and is something we can all live with. Should the NCAA have used a broader brush? Absolutely not. Expanding to 96 teams would have been a money grab that would have watered down the tournament.

The Loyola men's lacrosse team has picked up a supporter in its displeasure with being left out of the 16-team NCAA tournament: Johns Hopkins coach Dave Pietramala. While praising the quality of the bracket, Pietramala questioned the selection committee's decision to emphasize significant wins over strength of schedule. "It's obvious that the criteria that this committee used is different than the committee that had been together for the previous two or three years, and it's something that our sport needs to address in terms of consistency," he said.
