Big games tomorrow, and once again THE PRINTS, our resident NCAA lax picker has got your back ... Dig in!


SYRACUSE over Maryland: When you think of lacrosse tourney time, what team do you think of first? Yes, CUSE. After their impressive ACC Championship, I don't see the ball losing much steam this week even against a solid Terps defense. DYLAN DONAHUE, TIM BARBER, and SERGIO SALCIDO (Winter Park, FL) are on fire right now. SYRACUSE by 4!

BROWN over Navy: Navy is having the most impressive season in recent history. They are gritty and tough between the lines but, I think that they would Navy greats CHAD DONNELLY at defense and MICKEY JARBOE in cage to help stop BROWN attackman DYLAN MOLLOY. The St. Anthony's Long Island product is an absolute beast, Standing at 6' and weighing 220 pounds, you better double him with body if you stand a chance. BROWN by 6!

NOTRE DAME over North Carolina: This will be an excellent game but, Coach GERRY BYRNE's Irish defense brings the heat. They will smother UNC regardless of who they try to shift through the box. Look for a close game with ND coming out on top. NORTE DAME in OT!

LOYOLA over Towson: If anyone has heart and knows the game of lacrosse, it's Coach CHARLIE TOOMEY. As a player, he was as competitive as I ever seen a player be and as a coach, he is a bulldog, not a greyhound. Watch him game plan for Towson and make some good calls on his road to victory. LOYOLA by 3!


LEMOYNE over Merrimack: I do like this Merrimack team but, LEMOYNE has gamer BRIAN ROGERS, the kid can score when the pressure is on. He has two tournament overtime goals in the past 364 days! He keeps his team alive and my prediction is that they will see their nemesis Limestone next weekend. LEMOYNE by 5!

LIMESTONE over Tampa: Tampa has a strong offense but, Coach CARROLL KENNEDY is a seasoned defensive coach who will have this LIMESTONE team ready for battle with the Spartans. Look for All-American KYLE RHATIGAN (100 points to date) to have another big game and run down hill against the Tampa defense. LIMESTONE by 6!

 The 2016 college larosse season is winding down. It's been a heck of a ride, and our NCAA lacrosse expert THE PRINTS, has got you covered with his carefully selected picks and name drops ...
Friday Games:
BROWN over Harvard: BROWN's DYLAN MOLLOY is going for a season high 100 points in this match up. Can the Harvard defense stop this prolific scorer out of St. Anthony's, NY? BROWN wins by 2.

YALE over UPenn: I'm sensing an Ivy League title game of YALE vs BROWN as the Penn Quakers are midfield is too young to handle Bulldogs MICHAEL KEASEY and ERIC SCOTT between the lines. YALE by 4.

Saturday and Sunday Games:

NOTRE DAME over Army: This extra game penciled in here for a complete schedule is nothing more than a fill in game for ND. The IRISH defense will be all over the Cadets in this match up. They will be taking out their frustrating OT loss to Duke last week. 

SYRACUSE over Colgate: The Orangemen is fresh off their impressive ACC Championship and will get their bench into this meaningless match up. But, Coach Desko will want his starters to look sharp as they head into the Big Dance in a couple weeks! 

DUKE over BU: Just a tune up game for DUKE as starters JUSTIN GUTERDING, MYLES JONES, and DEEMER CLASS will be having a seat by halftime. 

D2 Pick of the Week: *Friday Game*: COLORADO MESA over Adams St.: This CO. MESA team hasn't lost since March 19 so, this pick is a no brainer. They are led by STEVE BRANDENBURG the Seal Beach, California native.

D3 Pick of the Week: BOWDOIN over Middlebury: Classic Snivey League match up on Saturday. BOWDOIN won their first meeting early in the season with an OT thriller. With the way they just beat Wesleyan last week, they are running all cylinders. Looks like the BOWDOIN team of the TOM RYAN era.

Once again our guy, The PRINTS looks into the future, and picks this weeks NCAA lax games. Hit us up, @YumYumLax or @BlueprintLax on twitter & let us know what you think!
YALE over Harvard: This is the game of the week! What is a week without a great Ivy League match up? This game will rely on the YALE midfield's ability to out run the Harvard mids between the lines. I look over the match up and will predict the Bulldogs by 2.

MARIST over Detroit: Senior JOSEPH RADIN (Long Beach, NY) is on a record setting mission for MARIST and he gets to face a Detroit defense that yields big numbers. Things will only get harder for the Detroit defense as RADIN torches them for a stat padding afternoon.

HOBART over Sacred Heart: Big FRANK BROWN and company have a tasty home game match up Saturday against a much improved yet young Sacred Heart team. 

JOHNS HOPKINS over Maryland: Yes, I am calling for an all out Petro style victory for the Blue Jays. The Blue Jays will play for their coach Saturday and turn over their century old cross town rival in a great match up! 

SIENA over Monmouth: Super Soph CHRIS ROBERTSON is catching fire and the Prints prediction is that he goes for a 3 and 2 afternoon against a soft Monmouth defense.

QUINNIPIAC over Manhattan: Goalie JACK BRUST is doing all that has been asked of him for QUINNIPIAC. The Calvert Hall product comes from the same program as Navy great keeper MICKEY JARBOE. Pedigree alone has BRUST at the top of his game and makes life easy for the QUINNIPIAC close defenders. 

GEORGETOWN over St. Johns: Hoyas ground ball machine CHARLIE FORD represents the state of California much like the California ground baller SPENCER WRIGHT did at Syracuse. FORD and the rest of the Hoyas make easy work of the Johnies in this one.

VERMONT over Binghamton: I really like this VERMONT team this year. They are deep at the midfield, quick on defense, and they have a good coach. Binghamton is also very well coached so, this should be a great game to watch. 

D2 Pick of the Week: DOWLING over Dominican: Things might get a little ugly for Dominican as DOWLING's BRIAN WHITE will create a match up nightmare. The Bayport, NY native is a high profile D2 All American candidate racking up 73 points to date. This match up will increase his resume and we should see him on the AA list come end of season. 

D3 Pick of the Week: CLARK over Emerson: This CLARK team is underrated. Time for some press from The Prints! THey have a special player in NICK JOHNSON and their coach JEFF COHEN is a CLARK grad who coaches with all heart for his team. Look for CLARK to notch a double digit margin of victory Saturday.

2016 Week 12 college lacrosse picks from our in house NCAA expert the inimitable PRINTS.  You saw it here first!
UPENN over Dartmouth: While Dartmouth goes through the rebuilding process, UPENN may have gotten two of the best freshmen in the Ivy League. JJ MCBRIDE (Delbarton) and SIMON MATHIAS (Ridgefield, CT) are coming along and making an impact as young bucks. Coach MIKE BARTOMIOLI is doing a nice job with the midfield this season. 

FURMAN over High Point: Short ride for Coach Meade and the Paladins up route 52 into NC and the furniture capital of the world, High Point. This will be a very good game with two up and coming teams but, the Prints predict FURMAN by 2.

DREXEL over Delaware: Delaware is playing better and had a few surprise wins lately but, Coach BRIAN VOELKER has a defense that is led by ground ball machine MILES THOMAS. Thomas is the purest DREXEL defenseman since JOHN JACKOWIAK graced the field for the Dragons.

HARVARD over Princeton: Although Princeton has been playing gritty under their new coach, HARVARD's stinging loss to UPenn isn't going to happen again on Saturday

HOFSTRA over UMass: What happened to this UMass team? They had so much promise and they were playing good midfield and good defense and all of a sudden, they became complacent. HOFSTRA is riding some mojo after back to back easy wins, they may just slide right past this struggling UMass squad.

NOTRE DAME over UNC: UNC either comes out blazing or they fizzle at the start. Which will it be against the nation's top defense? You have to get to this ND Defense unit early and often to stand a chance against them. ND steals this one.

RUTGERS over Penn State: Toughest call of the weekend in this match up. Penn St. is coming off back to back heart break OT losses. I'm thinking this game is no different. Will this be an OT Thriller? Make it 3 straight OT losses after Saturday!

TOWSON over Fairfield: Fairfield doesn't have the defense this year to contain JOE SEIDER (Hereford, MD) nor can they shadow BEN MCCARTY (South Carrol). TOWSON battles back into top 10 talk after this lopsided affair.

D2 Pick of the Week: BELMONT ABBY over Pfeiffer: Superstar Canadians CONNOR SELLARS and CALLUM TANNER are strong and can run in from the box on a shorty. Pfeiffer will struggle all day to contain these two north of the border specimens. 

D3 Pick of the Week: AMHERST over Williams: AMHERST Legacy Freshman ANDREW FORD (Delbarton) is already making a name for himself through the midfield. He is relentless between the lines and will be the future of this team. Williams will struggle to keep up with much bigger and more physical AMHERST midfield. Williams can really use Williams Legend MARK OLIVER this Saturday.

NCAA WEEK 11 picks from our in-house college lacrosse expert #ThePRINTS ... Catch it !

BROWN over Yale: Brown will hand Yale their first loss of the season this Saturday. This is the Game of the Week! Playing in Providence will be the deciding factor. The Brown U fans come out in the spring for lacrosse games and with Yale coming to town, look for the screaming liberals to torment the Yale Republicans.

COLGATE over Holy Cross: COLGATE's ROBBY DUNIGAN and JACK STEBBINS are having banner seasons and it doesn't stop Saturday as they will combine for a 4g's and 3a's Saturday in a cruise win over the Crusaders.

HOFSTRA over Drexel: Another excellent match up. If Coach Tierney's team shows up and plays like their pre season ranking, they should be able to handle the Drexel Dragons but, this one will come down to the wire. HOFSTRA by 2.

MARYLAND over Rutgers: Great games keep coming up for this Saturday and this one is another beauty on tap. Breaking this game down on tape, it looks like the Terrapin defense and goal play of KYLE BERNLOHR will keep the Rutgers offense at bay. Terps by 4.

OHIO STATE over Michigan: Another game that has OT Thriller written all over it! This will be a low scoring affair with the Buckeyes scoring in the final minutes for a 8-7 final score.

PRINCETON over Dartmouth: Two Ivy League struggling teams. PRINCETON is playing with a new coach and if they play the way played against Yale in week 7, they should run away with this one. The Tigers by a double digit margin!

RICHMOND over Bellamine: RICHMOND has been lacking fire power lately. They need to get ALEX HATEM the rock and free him up. HATEM has the ability to exploit the Bellarmine defense. RICHMOND shut down defenseman TOM MONZO will put a lid on any of the Bellarmine attackmen he covers.

SYRACUSE over UNC: This is a game Cuse needs and the inconsistency of UNC this season lends me to believe that they will squander away an early lead to the Orange. Cuse by a couple in this great match up.

VILLANOVA over Georgetown: Nova's JAKE FROCCARO (Port Washington, NY) is a slippery and agile player from anywhere on the field. He will be a tough match up for the Hoyas from the attack or from the midfield. A dynamic player who is lethal any time he gets the ball.

D2 Pick of the Week: WINGATE over Brevard: After startimg the season 0-4, Coach MICHAEL LAWSON has WINGATE playing with a purpose. They are notching victories on the reg now and Saturday will be another as star player AUSTIN MURPHY heats up and stretches the nylon often!

D3 Pick of the Week: DENISON over Ohio-Wesleyan: Huge call here but, OWU doesn't have legends like THERON FOLEY, JEFF RANT, BILL BISHOP, or PATRICK KENNEDY any more. DENISON is riding the shoulders of BLAIR FARINHOLT and the youngster MICHAEL HAUEISEN is showing promise at the midfield. Look for DENISON to sneak in a W in this long time rivalry.

[NCAA] The PRINTS' PICKS - WEEK 10 - The Dead Sea!

Our roving NCAA lax-picker lends us his insightful weekly selections from a different part of the world almost every week. This week , (WEEK 10) he checks in from the Dead Sea - ENJOY!
AIR FORCE over Mercer: The Falcons are having an epic season riding on the shoulders of sniper CHRISTOPHER ALLEN who is having a stellar senior year campaign.

BINGHAMTON over UMass-Lowell: I say this because it is evident UML isn't playing to their potential and BINGHAMTON coach SCOTT NELSON is a student of the game who should be able to get win number 3 this weekend!

BRYANT over Wagner: BRYANT is playing good ball at the right time. Where was this back in February and early March? BRYANT's SHANE MORRELL is showing why he always draws the opposing teams best defenseman. He can score on the run with both hands and looks to be in a zone lately. BRYANT in a blowout.

ROBERT MORRIS over Hobart: This could come down to OT. What a great match up between these schools. RMU's JAMES RAHE is a special player who should see lots of looks Saturday despite the string Hobart defense.

JOHNS HOPKINS over Ohio State: No easy match up for the Bluejays but, HOPKINS RYAN BROWN is playing as well as he was predicted to do in the pre-season reports. HOPKINS by 4.

RUTGERS over Michigan: RUTGERS continues its historic season as ADAM CHARALAMBIDES tries to get into the All-American conversation. He has a legitimate chance as he has put up multiple mult-point games and is a treat player to watch.

MARIST over Sienna: This is another thriller but, with MARIST JOSEPH RADIN on the verge of being MARIST's all-time leading scorer, I look for RADIN to continue his quest by having a big day Saturday, MARIST by 2.

HARTFORD over UMBC: UMBC will have match-up issues at the midfield and at the defensive end of the field trying to cover marksman JUSTIN HUGGINS who has been on fire for the HAWKS. He is looking like HARTFORD LEGEND LEE BAILEY lately. I wonder if JUSTIN HUGGINS is related to another lacrosse legend MARSHALL HUGGINS.

D2 Pick of the Week: TAMPA over Mercyhurst: Besides the blowout loss to Limestone (prediction is they see them again on Championship Sunday), ANDREW KEW and CONNOR WHIPPLE have something going for TAMPA and I see them pounding Mercyhurst into a double digit blowout.

D3 Pick of the Week: ROGER WILLIAMS over Trinity: Not very often would I pick a CCC team over a NESCAC team but, I like ROGER WILLIAMS in this one. NICK GAGNON is playing very well for the Hawks and I have noticed the Trinity defense is struggling to contain teams. This will be the deciding factor for the Hawks as GAGNON and crew pick apart the Bantams for a solid win.

The nomadic PRINTS went 10-2 last week and is back with another round of NCAA lacrosse picks. This week he's delivering live from Jerusalem, and next week live from Petra and the Dead Sea Jordan ... Catch it!

BU over Lehigh: This will be a knock down drag out game! Both teams are gritty and both teams are demanding D1 respect. BU has a special freshman player in JAMES BURR.

FURMAN over Jacksonville: Furman's big win last week will be enough to propel "Mr. Mo" heading into a struggling JU offense. Furman by 3.

PROVIDENCE over St. Johns: I'm going to keep riding the Friar Train until the Thayer Street Express runs out of steam. Look for BRENDAN KEARNS and Co. to roll the Johnies!

SAINT JOSEPHS over Wagner: A much improved Wagener squad is just a few steps behind St. Joes who is led by sharp shooter MIKE RASTIVO who is deadly from 10-12 out!

VILLANOVA over Marquette:  VILLANOVA just suffered a crushing defeat at the hands of #3 Brown but, this Brown team is the best it's been in the past two decades. Look for Nova to bounce back in a big way Saturday. The big question is........will the Villanova Basketball team also win Saturday?

CORNELL over Dartmouth: Coach MATT KERWICK gets the BIG RED back in the winner's circle against Ivy League foe Big Green. BIG RED runs away with this one one folks!

UMASS over Delaware: This game could get ugly quick! Unless Delaware can find a way to lock off DAN MULLER, UMASS may be spotting a 6 goal lead by halftime. Delaware also has to try to get shots past DAN DOLAN who is looking everything like UMASS Legend SAL LOCASIO in cage right now!

SYRACUSE over Notre Dame: Yes, this is the Heavyweight Game of the Week! ND's defense is stifling. Going to be great watching the match ups between SALCIDO, BARBER, DONAHUE vs Epple, Glazener, and Landis. This may be an OT Thriller!

D2 Pick of the Week: MOUNT OLIVE over Belmont Abby: Two of the hottest teams in D2 are facing off in this one. Belmont's All Name Team keeper Harley Witham will look to stop MOUNT OLIVE workhorse BRETT KINGSTON who has a knack for scoring big goals in big games. Look for Kingston to carry the Trojans to a 2 goal win. 

D3 Pick of the Week: KENYON over Wabash: No easy picnic for the Lords because Wabash is coached by Terry Corcoran who is respected and a legend in the lacrosse coaching community. Coaching alone isn't enough to stop Kenyon's ROBERT JACOBS. The Florida product is Kenyon's most versatile player who should dominate this game. Look for Jacobs to go 3-2 in this match up.
