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.
