[PRINTS' PICKS] NCAA TOURNAMENT - Greetings From The Kingdom Of Bahrain (Part 2)

For the second week in a row, our jet setting NCAA analyst, The PRINTS hits us from The Kingdom  Of Bahrain. This time submitting his picks, poolside. That's right NCAA lax fans, if you don't know by now, you'd better ask somebody, because NO ONE, lays it down, quite like THE PRINTS ...

Division 3
LYNCHBURG over Tufts: "LYNCHBURG coach STEVE KOUDELKA is due for a National Championship as a coach. He has one as a player already and this year feels right. His team overcoming a 7 goal deficit to Gettysburg last week is an indication that he has his team playing together at the right time. Attackman AUSTIN STEWART will look to extend his impressive All-American season. Defenseman ERIC LOMBARDO will be matched up against the Tufts best player, Minnesota Goal Machine JOHN UPPGREN. That is going to be something to watch! Look for LYNCHBURG to get in the record books as the D3 2015 National Champions"
Division 2
LeMOYNE over Limestone: "Limestone face off specialist KEVIN REISMAN is the best draw player in the D2 Nation. The only way to counter that is to have the best goalie and best attackman in D2. LeMOYNE has both of those in attackman KEVIN KELLY and goalie ALEX KRAWEC. Look for this one to be a 1 goal game or maybe even overtime. If REISMAN can control the x and MIKE MESSENGER can get nice match ups between the lines, this game will go down to the final seconds. And a bit of trivia, why is LeMOYNE located in Syracuse but their mascot is a Dolphin?"

Division 1 Final Four
NOTRE Dame over Denver: "Great game on the horizon here. Irish play maker MATT KAVANAGH is a baller. Watch for him to use his hockey skills to play rough and tumble against Denver's finesse players. I also think that ND defense coach GERRY BYRNES' defense can contain the Denver attack unit of CONNOR CANNIZZARO and WESLEY BERG. Don't miss this one"
JOHNS HOPKINS over Maryland: "If you dissect each team's schedules this season, you will see that they are on a crash course for an epic Final Four match up. What a perfect scenario. Both teams have been playing above their seed and both teams had colossal wins that got them to this point. I am siding in favor of the best coaching duo in lacrosse. DAVE PIETRAMALA and BILL DWAN, two HOPKINS Alumns who bleed Blue Jay blue and black. Their coaching coupled with the recent play of Baltimore natives SHACK and WELLS STANWICK (both on my All - Name Team) should be enough to squeeze past an incredibly gifted Terps defense led by CASEY IKEDA"
