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"
