No. 1 Notre Dame fell in the ACC semifinals to No. 6 Duke. No. 2 North Carolina did the same, to No. 4 Syracuse. And No. 3 Maryland was knocked off in their final regular-season game against unranked Johns Hopkins in the latest edition of that storied rivalry.

So does that make the Orange No. 1 after an ACC title run? Or perhaps fifth-ranked and pre-season No. 1 Denver, which finished its Big East run unbeaten in league play with a win over 14th-ranked Marquette on Saturday. That, we suppose, is the beauty of this time of year – most seasons, there isn't a clear choice, which is why we get to have these little internal (and external) philosophical debates.

The lanky defender stands at 6 feet, 5 inches and weighs 216 pounds, but his physical frame isn’t enough to crack the Orange’s starting back line. When a defender gets sent to the penalty box, though, SU needs size, speed and a high lacrosse IQ to make up for its man disadvantage.

To say that the West Genesee boys lacrosse team avenged last May's Section III Class A final defeat to Fayetteville-Manlius when it prevailed 8-4 amid a gray Tuesday afternoon on the Hornets' home turf would overstate it, since the stakes were not the same, nor were the lineups thanks to plenty of roster turnover since 2014 on both sides.

A series of routines has laid the foundation for Messina’s most successful season of college lacrosse. As a wing for No. 2 Syracuse (8-1, 2-1 Atlantic Coast) and its lethal faceoff unit, the senior midfielder has picked up 30 ground balls this season, the most of SU’s non-faceoff specialists and more than double what he’s collected in any other.

from US Lacrosse
I’ve heard some terrible reasons for athletes dropping out of sports when they move on to college. There’s a lot of talk about recruiting and whether or not a player is “good enough” to play at the collegiate level and/or the recruiting window closing by 10th grade, and I think that scares a lot of lacrosse players away from trying.

Here’s the truth. There is a team out there for anyone who wants to continue to play, regardless of age, skill level or athleticism. If you want to play, you can play.

Casey made seven saves and allowed only three goals in the Pioneers' 19-4 road victory against Keuka College this past Thursday. Casey played 51:14 between the pipes in the contest before being relieved by classmate Erin Jacobson (Staten Island, NY/Curtis).

By the look of things, Florida is going to be a tough team to defend, with the strong 1-2 punch of ageless MVP Casey Powell (Carthage) and Kieran McArdle returning, to be reinforced by all-everything Lyle Thompson (LaFayette) and Connor Buczek (Cornell) once the college season ends. But defense could be the question mark beyond Tucker Durkin.

Akron has fielded a boys team for only about 12 years, but that doesn’t mean the game was absent from the area. As part of the Tonawanda Reservation, Akron has a healthy percentage of Native American students who grew up with box lacrosse as part of their lives. Making the transition to field from box took some time -- the Tigers were 0-19 in 2005 -- but it’s the box background that’s a big part of what the Tigers are building.

“The (kids) are playing with the Tonawanda Braves program and now it’s a feeder program,” said Bellis. “The numbers for us are good in modified lacrosse and JV, and they’re getting the basics and skills there.”

Right-handed or left-handed. That is the extent of many scouting reports Albany coach Scott Marr says he prepares for his offense on an opposing goalie. “We don’t spend a ton of time on it,” Marr says. “On offense especially, we don’t really change how we do things for different teams.” It’s hard to argue with the results. Albany is ranked No. 1 in the NCAA in scoring offense through Saturday's games; it averages 17.9 goals. The Great Danes also finished No. 1 in scoring offense last year (15.94 goals) and in 2013 (15.94 also), according to the NCAA’s lacrosse statistics web site.
