Republican With Pair Of Lacrosse Stories

| 12 Comments | No TrackBacks
Check out Dick Baker's coverage in the Springfield Republican from what he calls the greatest day in college lacrosse in Western Massachusetts history. 

It's May Madness for local college lacrosse teams with conference titles and potential NCAA playoff berths at stake on home turf.

Both the men's and women's teams at the University of Massachusetts and Western New England College along with the men's team at Springfield College highlight a Saturday slate that is composed of arguably the largest number of championship-type lacrosse matches ever to be played by Western Massachusetts college teams at home on the same day.

In addition to the Saturday night Colonial Athletic Association men's title showdown between UMass and Delaware at Garber Field at 7, the UMass women, already Atlantic 10 champions, have a 1 p.m. NCAA play-in contest with Canisius at McGurk Stadium. In both contests, a UMass victory results in a berth in the NCAA tournament.

Previews Of UMass' CAA Semifinal At Penn State

The Daily Hampshire Gazette has a preview of the UMass-Penn State CAA Semifinal: UMass men's lacrosse gets shot at NCAA tournament.

If the University of Massachusetts men's lacrosse team were still in the ECAC, its season probably would be over.

The Minutemen had a solid 2011 season at 9-4, but their resume likely falls a little short of NCAA tournament at-large bid status without enough signature wins. The ECAC has no conference tournament and the Minutemen would have been stuck waiting for next year.

But now, as a member of the Colonial Athletic Association, hope is still very much alive as the No. 3-seed Minutemen (9-4) play No. 2 Penn State (7-6) tonight at 7 in the semifinal round of the CAA tournament at State College.

For the No. 15 Massachusetts men's lacrosse team, Wednesday night's game has a simple motivation: win or go home.

The Minutemen (9-4, 4-2 Colonial Athletic Association) travel to Penn State for a rematch with the Nittany Lions in a CAA Semifinals matchup.

UMass coach Greg Cannella hopes his team does not change a thing despite the greater stakes.
