Lacrosse All-Stars: Men's Lacrosse Season Preview completed a season preview for UMass men's lacrosse recently, covering what has changed and who could step up for the squad in 2014. Author Connor Wilson took a look at the upcoming schedule and players who could be key to success for the Minutemen this coming season.

"UMass went 7-8 in 2013 after a superb 2012, which has seen the program go 15-1. UMass started 2013 out right with 3 wins, especially as one of them was a 12-11 win over then #1 UNC. An OT loss to Brown and three straight losses to Top 20 teams put UMass at 3-4, but wins over Lehigh and Hartford got the Minutemen back on track and playing with a winning record. Three straight losses (two to Top 20 teams), two wins and a loss to finish up there year gave UMass a 7-8 mark, and a disappointing finish.

2014 should see UMass with a similar strength of schedule. Some opponents have been changed out, but UMass has retained a challenging but winnable slate of games. Early games with Army, Brown, Harvard, Ohio State, and Albany will tell us a lot about where UMass sits, but let's try to figure some of this out before they open the season with the Army Black Knights on February 9th..."
