This year has a lot of amazing players and teams.

University of Albany and the Thompson Trio put on a show. Those guys are insane and scored the upset against Loyola which was the number 1 team in the country.

Syracuse joined the ACC along with Notre Dame and made for one of the most intense conferences in Division 1. Just insane games right down to the last min.

Maryland looks awesome.

One of the premier teams is the Duke BlueDevils. They have numerous all americans and they are the defending champs. The tournament this year has been and will continue to be extemely exciting to watch. Phone Post 3.0

papasmurf24 - My pick is cornell ftw.

Cornell is playing maryland at 5. Gonna be a great game. The terps are rated higher in the tourny this year since cornells season took a dive towards the end. But big red stomped them in the beginning of the season.

Sultan - Who you got today? Phone Post 3.0
Watching Cornell/Maryland currently.

Im picking either Syracuse or Duke but i really hope Albany makes a great run. They looked incredible today. The thompson trio are a very special unit. They were putting on a fucking show.

Lyles dodge, pass fake, turn and under handed backhand shot was just straight DIRTY. absolute sickness.

If anyone has ever picked up a stick and tried to handle, you willl have an appreciation for the absolute wizadry they display. Phone Post 3.0

He's talking about the Thompsons. Lyle and Miles Thompson and the 3rd attackmen in their unit is their cousin Ty Thompson.

Miles Thompson has scored 79 goals in a single season. Just incredible. Some entire teams do not score 79 goals.

Lyle Thompson is the leading points getter in Div 1 and has set the single season points record. These guys are all over the all time record books.

They are a must see attack unit. Phone Post 3.0

I've watched every game this weekend, and it's killing me.

This is the first lax season I've missed in 17 years. The Army dragged me to OK, so I haven't played or coached at all this year.

It's a cruel tease. Phone Post 3.0
