[NCAA] THE PRINTS' PICKS - WEEK 12. ITALY Edition, Part 2




























Our college lax expert and passport stamping correspondent, The PRINTS continues to share his unique perspective on the NCAA lacrosse landscape as he travels the planet. As you can see, he's still in ITALY, but made the time to bring you his WEEK 12 picks. Now that's amore ...

ALBANY over UMBC: "ALBANY is making their strong playoff run with a potent offense that will spread the UMBC defense and pick it apart!"

BROWN over Dartmouth: "Coach LARS TIFFANY takes this Ivy League showdown seriously like he did when when he played for BROWN back in the 90's. The BROWN offense is showing signs of the TOMMY GILBANE days lately and that should continue on Saturday against the Big Green"

DREXEL over Towson: "What? Yes, coach BRIAN VOELKER has the Dragons playing very well right now. They are facing one of the best defenses in the country which makes me a little nervous. DREXEL wins 8-7 in this close match up"

HARVARD over Yale: "Loving the Ivy League match ups this weekend. Another close game here with DEVIN DWYER and DEKE BURNS guiding the way for the Crimson boys from Cambridge"

HIGH POINT over Bellarmine: "HIGH POINT continues to ride the consistent play of MATT THISTLE and MICHAEL LECLAIR who should easily have big days Saturday against a suspect Bellarmine defense"

MARYLAND over Johns Hopkins: "MARYLAND's defense is good enough this year to stop the ever improving Hopkins offense in this legendary rivalry"

RICHMOND over Mercer: "RICHMOND defenseman BRENDAN HYNES is playing like a protege of his MOHOPAC HIGH SCHOOL alumni shut down defensemen RYAN MACLAY and BRIAN DALTON. Flashy and never gets beat"

OHIO ST over Rutgers: "No match for the Scarlet Knights in this lopsided affair"

VILLANOVA over Providence: "Another big Saturday lies ahead for Nova's SEAN CERRONE who should find the back of the net often against a very porous Friar defense"

D2 Pick Of The Week - CHESTNUT HILL over Post: "CHESTNUT HILL duo ALEC DAMBACH and DYLAN KLUSARITZ are a strong combo and they are playing the Post from CT not the Post from Long Island!"

D3 Pick Of The Week - GETTYSBURG over Washington College: "I haven't given GETTYSBURG a shout out yet this season and I should do it now. Especially when they are playing an old time rival who they competed for national championships with for many years. Hats off to coach HANK JANCZYK who has his team playing like they did during the golden years of BRIAN SULLIVAN and STEVE KOUDELKA"

"To get an an idea of just how strong the ACC has been this season in men's and women's lacrosse, just check out the national rankings. All five of the conference's men's teams find themselves in the top 10 nationally, while the top seven women's teams are all ranked in the top 20. ACC Digital Network host Jeff Fischel reveals a staggering combined out-of-conference record for the men's programs, and gets you ready for both conference championships that get underway this weekend."

WEEK 11 and THE PRINTS is on the move and back with another round of picks. This time his NCAA predictions and blurbs are coming at you live and direct from ITALY! This guy gets around. He not only clocks frequent flyer mileage, but he also boasts a 10-1 record for Week 10 with his only loss by 1 goal AND he picked the Master's Champion. Pretty Legit! Let us know what you think.

AIR FORCE over Robert Morris: "CHRIS WALSCH and NICK HRUBY are playing full tilt for the Bolts right now. Robert Morris can't contain the two of them"

RICHMOND over Bellarmine: "J.P. FORESTER and the Spiders had a very impressive win over High Point last week and I just don't see Bellarmine keeping pace with FORESTER and the rest of the Spider squad Saturday"

MARIST over Manhattan: "MARIST goalie DAVE SCARCELLO may be the best MARIST goalie since RYAN PENNER was there!"

UNC over Notre Dame: "Yes, I am calling UNC for real this weekend. In the "must tune in game of the week", I think UNC will be ready after their Cuse victory last week. This game will be sweet"

MONMOUTH over Quinnipiac: "MONMOUTH coach JOHN DOHN will have his boys from New Jersey ready for a scrappy Quinnipiac team from North Haven, CT"

STONY BROOK over Binghamton: "Good game brewing here but, the Seawolves have All American candidate BRODY EASTWOOD"

VILLANOVA over St. John's: "JACK CURRAN and the Wildcats look to get back on the winning train after a stretch of tough luck losses. Look for them to rebound this week in a close contest"

VIRGINIA over Georgetown: "Another great game to look forward to. After a couple hard luck losses to Duke and UNC, UVA will bounce back in a big way against the Hoyas"

WAGNER over Sacred Heart: "WAGNER is well coached by MATT POSKAY and they have a special player in ANDREW STREILEINA, a crafty freshman from LENAPE HIGH SCHOOL in south New Jersey"
 

D2  Pick  of  the  Week, NYIT over Seton Hill: "Look for NYIT attackman SHAWN MURPHY to try to find dome room as Seton Hill defenseman MATT MAHOOD tries to stop him. Great match up I wish I could see in person but, I am currently getting ready for pasta and meatballs in Venice"

D3 Pick of the Week, MISERICORDIA over Manhattanville: "MISERICORDIA alumn MATT CAREY is tearing up the Florida Men's League and may be the best midfielder in that league playing for Jacksonville Armadillos. He will be proud this week when his alma mater takes down Manhattanville"
