Johns Hopkins leads Brown 6-4 at the half. I am pulling for Brown to pull off the upset here. Brown has a sick goalie in Jordan Burke, but his defense has been killing him thus far.

Canadian, in fact. Just had to point that out. :)

Great finish to the first game. Brown ties the game at 11 with 0:08 seconds remaining, but then falls in overtime.

Johns Hopkins 12, Brown 11 (F-OT)

Great game. For some reason I've always rooted for Johns Hopkins.

JHG722 05-09-2009 02:04 PM

That Hopkins/Brown game was incredible. Btw, devin, It's Villanova Wildcats (or Vilenova Wildcats). Catamounts is UVM's nickname.

I am aware, I played in HS but you'd never see scholarship teams outside those east coast/new england schools.

Never heard of it.

Go Terps!!!

That's cool how 5 of the 16 teams are from the DMV area.

Well considering the culture and the top quality HS programs in the DMV area, it kinda makes sense ;)

Cornell knocked off Hofstra 11-8 and North Carolina held off UMBC 15-13.

scottyboy 05-09-2009 08:55 PM

Bitter is absolutely ridiculous. no sophomore should score that much in an NCAA tourney game. just nasty

devinhester=R.O.Y 2006 05-10-2009 12:30 PM

What a tough game for Navy last night. Duke absolutely dominated. Should be a good game between them and Carolina.

As of now Notre Dame's undefeated season is in jeopardy of coming to an end at the hands of Maryland.

devinhester=R.O.Y 2006 05-10-2009 01:02 PM

The Terps knock off previously unbeaten Notre Dame 7-3. Maryland is the first unseeded team to advance to the 2nd round.

devinhester=R.O.Y 2006 05-10-2009 02:19 PM

Virginia is just killing Villanova 10-0 in the 2nd Quarter. Could be a very ugly game.

iowatreat54 05-10-2009 02:21 PM

I'm glad to see the ND lacrosse has continued the tradition that ND football started: dominate your cupcake schedule and blow in the postseason.

devinhester=R.O.Y 2006 05-10-2009 02:55 PM

Virginia now up 17-0 with 12:00 minutes left in the 3rd quarter. This is getting really bad. I feel bad for the Villanova kids, I hope they can get on the board.

derza222 05-10-2009 03:07 PM

I thought Virginia was going to beat us up pretty bad, but this is an absolute massacre. Next year should be interesting in the new Big East lax conference. The program will be gradually phasing in scholarships, which should help. I'm pretty sure nobody on this year's team is on a scholarship. I'd like them to get a goal on the board as well. This isn't a surprise, but it was a really ugly game.

They play in a weak lacrosse conference, the Great Western Lacrosse League, with Air Force, Denver, Ohio State, Quinnipiac, and Bellarmine. I do have to say I am impressed that they beat Loyola Maryland, North Carolina, and Bucknell this year, but the rest of the schedule was pretty weak.

At least they will be out of the GWLL next year as they have decided to join the Big East, which will begin to sponsor lacrosse next year. Georgetown, Notre Dame, Syracuse, Villanova, Providence, St. John's, and Rutgers will make up the conference.

devinhester=R.O.Y 2006 05-10-2009 03:27 PM

Nova finally scored!

iowatreat54 05-10-2009 03:28 PM

Great to see. I was starting to feel bad for the guys.

devinhester=R.O.Y 2006 05-10-2009 03:57 PM

Virginia called off the dogs late and beat Villanova 18-6.
