Four UMass men's lacrosse alumni saw game action in Major League Lacrosse this weekend, including two who dueled in a Friday night ESPN3 contest. Check out how the former Minutemen standouts fared this weekend and take a look at highlights from the Boston-Rochester game below:

Kevin Leveille (2000-03) and Will Manny (2010-13) matched up on opposite sides as Boston fell on the road at Rochester, 8-7 Friday evening. Manny tallied two points (1 G, 1 A) and a groundball but Leveille answered with a pair of goals, an assist and two groundballs to help the Rattlers to their victory.

Leveille capped a 3-0 Rochester run with an extra-man goal during the second to put himself on the scoreboard before he assisted on the tally that put the Rattlers up for good, 5-4 in the third. The Delmar, N.Y., native then provided his second goal of the evening to push the lead to 6-4 with 10 minutes, 10 seconds left in the third.

Manny struck early for Boston as he provided the Cannons with their first goal of the game 4:02 into play. He added an assist on Boston's fourth goal of the night as the Cannons erased a 4-1 halftime deficit to even the game during the third quarter.

Another UMass grad, Diogo Godoi (2006-10) rotated into the defensive lineup for the Cannons to help Boston hold Rochester to just eight goals, but did not record statistics during competition.

Manny's classmate Jake Smith (2010-13) was on close defense for Charlotte when the Hounds fell to the Florida Launch, 11-8. Smith secured a pair of groundballs in the game.

Alumnus Will Manny Talks UMass Men's Lacrosse With

Tom Bovee of spoke with UMass men's lacrosse alumnus and current Boston Cannons attackman Will Manny to get his thoughts on the program for a feature article.

So Will what made you pick UMass?
I wasn't really recruited by any of what you would call the big time schools. This ended up not mattering at all. I felt a great connection with Coach Cannella and he was interested in me right away. I wanted to go to a school that offered me all the things I was looking for, not sure I would have found that had I gone anywhere else. I was going to get to play right away and they had just graduated Jimmy Connelly and Tim Balise, so I knew I would get the chance to play right away, that was important to me. It really just worked out plus you earn what you put in at UMass and it's a real blue collar mentality about everything. I love that about Coach Cannella, you have to earn it.

You played on one of the best UMass teams in history who is one teammate from college you wish was on your team now?
I had a good talk with Cannons GM Kevin Barney and Head Coach John Tucker in the offseason and they were able to add a few UMass guys and I am really excited about it so I am fortunate to already have the chance to play with many of them but I would go with Jake Smith, he is one of the toughest, meanest most fundamental defensemen I've ever played and he is now in the MLL. Going against him you know you're going to be on the ground on a regular basis. I would want him on my defensive end, if I'm on attack watching out defense I know I'll have the ball soon if he is back there.

What was your favorite tradition on campus lacrosse related or otherwise?
If we played a game on a Saturday after practice on a Friday we would meet in our film room as a full team. We had FNR, its Film Night Reels it could be from 2-10 minutes long of highlights from past, present and all over and it really gets the guys going and shows them what they are playing for. It teaches guys about Garber's Gorillas. A lot of guys don't understand that and it means everything to the guys who live it, I might just write a book about it one day. Also after that all the seniors also would go to dinner and just get to spend the time together and not a lot of schools get to do that, it's a special time that as seniors you get to enjoy with your class.

Boston Cannons Rookie Spotlight: Will Manny

| No TrackBacks
The Boston Cannons of Major League Lacrosse featured UMass men's lacrosse alum Will Manny (2009-12) in its 'Rookie Spotlight' on Monday, highlighting Manny's immediate impact on offense. Through seven games played, Manny amassed 20 points on 11 goals and nine assists and recorded at least one point in each contest.

One goal; two goals; two goals; one goal, four assists; two goals, one assist; two goals, three assists; one goal, one assist. This is Will Manny's career line. You'll notice there are no zeros. He has recorded at least one point in every game he has played in. Talk about an immediate impact.

Most new phases in life require time to adjust, but Manny's transition from college lacrosse to the MLL could not have been smoother. His 20 points in 7 games looks more like a veteran line than a rookie one...

Recaps: UMass Wins Senior Night Contest With Delaware, 16-8

UMass men's lacrosse defended Garber Field with the Blue Hens of Delaware in town on Friday night, putting together a complete performance to double-up the visitors, 16-8 in front of 1,623 fans. Kyle Smith earned a career-high nine points (6 goals, 3 assists) while classmate and fellow starting attackmen Will Manny earned seven more (4 goals, 3 assists) to pace the offense. On the other end of the field, seniors Ryan Hollenbaugh and Jake Smith combined for six groundballs and five caused turnovers to lead an even-paced UMass defense that did not allow Delaware more than two goals in any individual quarter.

With the win, UMass remains in contention for the final seed in the CAA Tournament, needing Penn State to defeat Hofstra and Towson to claim victory over Saint Joseph's on Saturday in order to secure a postseason berth. Below are a few recaps of the contest from members of the media present for competition:

Matt Vautour of the Daily Hampshire Gazette highlighted the connection between Smith and Manny on the field during the contest during his review of play.

Brian Foley with Inside Lacrosse provided game blog to give play-by-play action throughout the contest and caught up with a few of the Minutemen after for postgame interviews.

Nick Canelas of the Daily Collegian highlighted the overall success of the offense against the Delaware defensive effort.
The Daily Collegian's Nick Canelas caught up with senior attack Will Manny of UMass men's lacrosse recently to discuss the all-American's career and the road back from a broken thumb suffered in the 2013 season-opener.

Will Manny is as comfortable as ever when he steps onto Garber Field for the Massachusetts men's lacrosse team.

He's energized, but he's relaxed. He's excited, but he's focused. Everything is the same as it ever was.

He sports his usual white jersey with the No. 1 stitched in maroon and has the No. 7 sketched in eye black facing in toward his nose under each eye.

He knows he can rely on his skills. He knows he can rely on his teammates. And he knows he can rely on the preparation of his coaches. Above all, he knows he can rely on his durability.

Manny had never suffered a serious injury in his entire athletic career and had never been kept off the lacrosse field for more than a week. He was always a fixture on the top UMass attack unit, even in the fall.

But that all changed on Feb. 10.

Read the entire article through the Daily Collegian website here. The Minutemen continue their season with a home game on Saturday, April 13 at 1 p.m.

Justin Lafleur contributed to Inside Lacrosse with a feature story on the lifelong friendship of UMass' Will Manny and Lehigh's Dante Fantoni, who will face each other for the first time on Wednesday after years of competing together through high school. The duo played at St. Anthony's High School and have developed into two of the strongest players in Division I college lacrosse, combining for 325 career points entering the upcoming contest, which will be featured as the ESPNU Game of the Week at 6 p.m. on March 20.

Daily Collegian: Three former Minutemen taken 2013 MLL Draft

The Minutemen start their 2013 campaign and CAA regular season and tournament defense at home on Garber Field against Army at 1 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 9.

12. UMass (15-1)

2012 Final Regular-Season Rank: 1
2012 Preseason Rank: 12
Key Returnees: Will Manny (44g, 33a), Kyle Smith (33g, 19a), Colin Fleming (26g, 8a), Jake Smith (28gb, 11ct), Ryan Hollenbaugh (25gb, 12ct)
Key Losses: 11 seniors. Art Kell (33g, 20a), Anthony Biscardi (21g, 7a), Mike Fetterly (7g, 19a), Tom Celentani (32gb, 24ct), Greg Anderson (26gb, 5ct), Tim McCormack (7.09 GAA, 60.6%)

Three Questions:

  • Can the Minutemen repeat their magic? It would be tough for anyone to predict another 15-win, undefeated regular season, but this is especially the case with the Colonial Athletic Association's ever-increasing strength. Before UMass' NCAA tournament loss Penn State, Hofstra and Drexel gave the Minutemen a run for their money. Related: Will UMass consider beefing up its schedule with tough out-of-conference games? Despite ranking No. 2 in the RPI, UMass was given the 6-seed by the Selection Committee and drew Colgate in the first round; it didn't face its first tournament team until...the tournament.
  • How will UMass handle the loss of Art Kell and Anthony Biscardi? Tewaaraton Award finalist and Crafty lefty quarterback Will Manny and partner in crime Kyle Smith return, but fellow attackmen Kell and Biscardi combined for nearly 100 points last year. The nation's No. 3 offense will score, but defenses are going to pay more attention to Manny.
  • Who will replace Tim McCormack? The fifth-year senior and leader of the defense started 28 games over the last two seasons, and he saved 55.3 percent of shots in 2012. The heir apparent is Zachary Oliveri, a U.S. U-19 team member and highly regarded recruit. He's an outspoken, active goalie who will command the unit. Top cover defenseman Jake Smith, who went toe-to-toe with Peter Baum, will anchor the defense after losing multi-year starters Greg Anderson and Tom Celentani. released their midseason All-American picks with UMass' Will Manny on the first team. Tom Celentani and Tim McCormack were both All-American second team picks.

In the March 19 edition of the USILA Coaches Poll, UMass holds steady at No. 3 in the nation for the second straight week. In the Nike Media Poll, the Minutemen also remain at No. 4 following the 9-8 OT win at No. 14 Penn State on Saturday.

In Quint Kessenich's weekly breakdown of the polls, he has this to say about UMass:
3 UMass -- The Minutemen had their first close shave, beating Penn State in overtime. Greg Cannella's team is getting offensive production from Will Manny, Art Kell, Kyle Smith and Anthony Biscardi. Stopper Tim McCormack (.615) ranks fourth nationally in save percentage.

Previews Of UMass' CAA Semifinal At Penn State

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

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.

The Daily Collegian has this preview: UMass, PSU meet again for CAA Semifinals

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.

Two Gain Recognition From Lacrosse Magazine

| No Comments | No TrackBacks
Lacrosse Magazine lists both Art Kell and Will Manny among "Weekend's Best" Honorable Mention for their play in the Minutemen's 14-10 win at Hartford.

Also, Lacrosse Magazine has a feature on this week's lacrosse opponent, Ohio State. OSU Coach Nick Myers is a product of Springfield College.

A Division III All-American at Springfield College, a school with international recognition as a pioneer in physical education and that has produced several current college lacrosse coaches, Myers led the Pride to a 16-2 mark and NCAA tournament berth with 52 goals and 39 assists in 2001. He met Breschi through his younger brother, Pat, then an Ohio State standout.

Lax Magazine also mentions: Ohio State's brutal, non-conference schedule continues Saturday at UMass. It will be the first-ever meeting between the Buckeyes and Minutemen, and Myers' first time trolling the sidelines at Garber Field, a notoriously difficult place to play for visitors. 

 "I grew up with a 'Garber Gorillas' t-shirt when I was a kid," Myers said. "My stepfather introduced me to Dick Garber. He's a legend in the game."
