PRINTS' PICK 2016 !!!

YumYumLax, PRINTS' PICKS are back! Old School name dropping and Young Blood research every week. Our nomadic PRINTS kick starts the 2016 season with a hum dinger. This week he checks in with us from an undisclosed location. Next week he'll be in Milan, Italy. Make sure you get the scoop from a lax vet, and not some wet-behind-the-ears, new-jack, "lax bro" with all-over-print bananas on his shorts. 

DENVER over Duke: Big Boys getting after it early in the season. Both are coming off 12 round split decision games that went the entire 12 rounds. DUKE keeper DANNY FOWLER has to play like DUKE LACROSSE Legend DANNY LOFTIS if he is going to stop the best attack unit in the country. Close game going to DENVER.

LEHIGH over Furman: LEHIGH erased a 6 goal deficit to Duke last week which shows they can score against a good defense. Coach MEADE is still a year or two away from getting the elite players he needs in Greenville. LEHIGH by 4.

AIR FORCE over Marist: The AIR FORCE defense is legit. They took it to the Denver offense and almost pulled it out. I think they head up I-684 past YORKTOWN HEIGHTS, NY and handle Marist with ease this weekend

OHIO STATE over UMass: Junior JT BLUBAUGH has Ohio State looking like their usual Midwest selves this year. He will score often and plenty against a soft UMass defense and the rest of the BUCKEYE mids will run past a very unstable UMass midfield.

BRYANT over Providence: This is a toss up game in the Chowder Bowl of D1 Rhode Island Lax! I would love to hop on I-195 from either Rt. 136 or Rt. 24 to see this match up. Providence hasn't been this good since HOLY CROSS HS WATERBURY, CT native MARK CORDON used to rip corners for the Friars, RIP MC!

ROBERT MORRIS over Manhattan: ROBERT MORRIS is due for their first "W" and this is the weekend they get it. They showed grit last week against Bellarmine and that momentum will carry over this week and they will get it done!

DARTMOUTH over Sacred Heart: Big Green is a different squad this year and they will face a different Sacred Heart team from the past. It will be a good fight but, the Big Green midfield is deeper and faster than the Pioneers from the Connecticut coastline

RICHMOND over UMBC: 6' 4" MITCH GOLDBERG is unstoppable and a Manimal. UMBC doesn't have the likes of STEVE SETTEMBRINO any more. GOLDBERG drops 4 g's and 2 a's for a 6 point afternoon.

VERMONT over Holy Cross: VERMONT can score. Gone are the days they had to rely on KYLE SMINKEY or DREW FLOOD for production. Holy Cross is gasping for air and for a win but, this weekend is a payback weekend by the Catamounts as they smother the Holy Cross defense with a barrage of shots!

D2 Pick of the Week: MOLLOY over Assumption: Middie PETER CLARK should have a hat trick in pacing MOLLOY past Assumption. Assumption's game plan should include a way to stop Clark, "get a pole on him Coach".

D3 Pick of the Week: SALVE REGINA over Emmanuel: Attackman NICK LOCICERO is a LYNBROOK HIGH SCHOOL product who is expected to carry Coach PAT COONEY'S squad this year. Look for him to pick apart the Emmanuel keeper and stay on pace to be an ALL-CCC selection come April.
