May Madness reigns again!
For the first time 18 teams headed into the NCAA Lacrosse Tournament. Two teams have already been sent home with Air Force defeating Richmond in their first year competing in Division 1, and Bryant edged out Siena for the right to take on Syracuse this weekend. With the expansion and conference realignment in lacrosse, the expansion of the tournament was necessary and I think they did it in a good way as well, sending the lowest ranked automatic qualifiers to the play in. But there is much more to dissect. This weekend will be chock-full of great lacrosse action. Get to a TV if you can. The full schedule of times and channels for the entire tournament are here. John and my brackets are below.
John picks Syracuse to win it all. I picked Duke to repeat. We both have Duke playing Syracuse in the National Championship. Unlike the NCAA Basketball Tournament, these games could go either way, so we both may end up way off when the Memorial Day Weekend rolls around. Leave your picks in the comment section. Either way, there will be some really great lacrosse to watch. And check out our friends at College Crosse for a ton of Tournament coverage. Check back here for Syracuse recaps. Go Orange!
