[PRINTS' PICK] Week 6!

Weather finally turning around these parts and our NCAA lax picker, The PRINTS is here to set you straight with his unique perspective of the college lacrosse landscape ...

DELAWARE over Binghamton: I know, I know, not a blockbuster game as these teams only have one win between them but, Coach BOB SHILLINGLAW has and All American Mustache! 

Boston University over Colgate: This will be a one goal game. Right down to the wire. I may even call OT Thriller on this game! I wish I could make it to this game. It is going to be fun to watch BU LSM's HENRY LEE and GREG WOZNIAK cover Colgate's workhorse CAM WILLIAMS. 

HOFSTRA over Ohio State: Last week, HOFSTRA lost a stunner to G'Town, this week, no way JOSH BYRNE will let that happen. BYRNE dominates between the lines in this game that gets HOFSTRA back into contention. 

JOHNS HOPKINS over Towson: This is such a throw back game. I mean I can remember the games with BILL DWAN covering his best buddies STEVE CARCATERRA and DON CONNOLY and ROB DOERR shadowing SPENCER FORD. The KISS throwing deep wraps at the midfield on JEFF WILLS. Always good games between these cross town rivals. Afterwards, they meet at The Beach on HOPKINS campus or at The Towers on Towson campus. Expect a brawl to the end of this one.

UNC over UMass: UNC has been all over the road this year. UMass plays hard every week so, this is no easy game for UNC. I still think UNC's PATRICK KELLY is one of the best scorers in the game today and he will punish the UMass defense.

NAVY over Lafayette: NAVY will ride the backs of JACK RAY and CASEY REES once again this week as they plow their way through the Patriot League. I expect a dormant Navy offense the past few season to light a fire this week and score +12 goals.

HARVARD over Penn State: Crimson's DEVIN DWYER is unstoppable right now. He is the purest HARVARD scorer since MICHAEL MCBRIDE. HARVARD should have a good day Saturday improving to 5-0, the best they have looked since going 4-0 in 2002!

UMASS-LOWELL over Manhatten: I like this UMASS-LOWELL team. They are gritty and have a prolific scorer in AUSTIN LANE from over the border HILL ACADEMY Canadian. He is a beast and only a freshman! 

VILLANOVA over UPenn: Another cross town rival game. Back in the day, UPenn would play with the Wildcats from the Main Line. But, not any more. Wildcat JAKE FROCCARO is making history stats and is sure to bounce Nova greats SOL MAHONEY and RICK BONTONIBUS out of the record books. 

D2 Pick of the Week: LYNN over Lenoir-Rhyne: This is no lay up game. Lenoir-Rhyne is very well coached by Greg Paradine who has changed the face of the program. I just think that LYNN has a scoring machine in ANTHONY RAINONE that can't be stopped. 

D3 Pick of the Week: M.I.T. over U.of New England: This is a ploy to get M.I.T. back into the CCC League they belong in. At one time, MIT was the king of the Pilgrim League. That broke up and MIT ended up in some small, NEWMAC? They belong with the big dogs of the CCC. Come on Coach WALTER ALESSI (been there for like 30 years), make the change. Sophomore GRAHAM DAVIS is playing like MIT Legend DAVID CHANG right now. Scoring goals!
