The end is in site as we come off of my favorite weekend of college lacrosse. Only three more weekends remain in this season before a champion is crowned after two years.
As one would expect the weekend brought some upsets, thrilling finishes, and just a whole lot of fun. My favorite game of the weekend was Loyola vs Denver and the last second save by Loyola to shut the door on Denver's hopes of making it to memorial day weekend. In the first round I picked 6/8 with misses on Lehigh and Denver.
Looking out to next weekend there are some heavyweight quarterfinal games. The one I will be watching the most closely is Notre Dame vs Maryland. All season the only negative thing that could be said against Maryland is that they had not tested their strength against the ACC. Well now they will get their chance against a tough and gritty Irish team. I am hoping for a Maryland win because who does not want to see a Terps vs Blue Devils semi-final?
My picks for this weekend:
Georgetown vs UVA - 5/22 @ 12:00pm est ESPNU
UNC vs Rutgers - 5/22 @ 2:30pm est ESPNU
Loyola vs Duke - 5/23 @ 12:00pm est ESPNU
Maryland vs ND - 5/23 @ 2:30pm est ESPNU
