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.

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.

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.

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 ;)

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

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.

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

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

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.

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.

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.

Syracuse easily handles Siena 11-4.

And that concludes the 1st Round of the tournament.

I know this isn't really on topic but a guy i met and travelled with for a few weeks in Spain just won the NJCAA National Championship and was named a 1st team NJCAA All American. And just got into Cornell.

Wish i was still good at stuff.

Syracuse currently up 6-4 on Maryland. Both teams have turned to backup goalies due to injury and illness today.

Syracuse and Cornell advanced to Monday's National Championship Game. The Orange had no trouble with Duke and won 17-7. Cornell, on the other hand, pulled off one of the bigger upsets of the tournament after they upset number 1 seed Virginia 15-6.

i can't believe Cornell upset UVA, especially with a score like that. damn. I'm feeling 'cuse wins by about 5+ goals, but I'm pretty pumped for it.

I'm so pissed that Cornell couldn't just hang on to the ball for 30 seconds. Like why are the long sticks trying to be possession players, shouldn't they be getting the ball to guys with shorter sticks?

Also, idk his real name, but the guy with 2 bad knees that they nicknamed "Johnny Vacation" is awesome and why I want Cornell to win.

Cornell blows a late lead, and the Orange are able to win it 10-9 in overtime. Back to back national titles for the Orange. Congrats to Syracuse.

I'm from Syracuse and I can tell you the after party is probably still going on. Lacrosse is wildly popular in upstate NY so it was great to see two upstate teams in the finals. Not to mention Cortland won the D-111 and LeMoyne lost by two in the D-11 finals

Yeah, it was real close to being all upstate winners. And all the coaches from those teams are from my high school.

my friend plays at Rutgers and said that Cuse was so filthy. I wanted Cornell to win, but it was a sick game nonetheless
