UMass Lax Update: Three Charged With Douchebaggery

Celebrate now, because it will be a different tune in the Dome.
I reported earlier this month about the UMass Lacrosse Team and how eight members of the team were suspended from the field for their alleged involvement with an off campus brawl in which they used lacrosse sticks as weapons. Well, now three students have been charged with a crime and have been removed as students of the university.

The Republican, via, reports that freshman Christopher R. Casey, sophomore Christian M. Haggerty and freshman Ryan T. Marcus are no longer enrolled at UMass. The three players have been charged with assault and battery and breaking and entering. All three students have pleaded not guilty.
The charges stem from a fight that broke out after an off-campus party on Feb. 1 at 304 North Pleasant Street in Amherst, Massachusetts. Now you know where the hot jam in Amherst is. Five other players remain suspended from the team, but will not be charged with a crime at this time. Those players are freshman Jay Lucas, freshman Alex Whitney, redshirt sophomore Jordan Hendry, junior Justin Kelleher, and junior Jim Connolly. These students could be reinstated to the lacrosse team, but for now remain suspended for violating team rules, most likely related to curfew.

Freshman Ryan Marcus, one of the players charged was a top 100 lacrosse recruit this year according to Inside Lacrosse. Jim Connolly, who is merely suspended from the team, was a preseason honorable mention All-American attackman. This, as previously stated, leaves UMass Lacrosse in a position of missing a top freshman who was destined to do great things on the field, as well as a top attackman in the nation. It is all due to the kids getting a little frisky one night in February. Stay tuned to even more law breaking news as it develops right here at Orange::44.

PS - UConn's Dyson is now off suspension, so look for him to return to the court only to be removed from it again sometime soon.
PPS - I watched the last two minutes of the Syracuse women's basketball game. They beat Georgetown by one point at home, avenging an earlier loss to them in DC earlier in the season. Congratulations to Coach Q and the ladies.
