Happy Thursday, 'Nova Nation! We haven't covered them much this spring given how far the basketball team went, but the men's lacrosse team is in Denver for the Big East Tournament today. The 'Cats have had a pretty good season, and are currently projected as bubble-in for the NCAA Tournament.
They'll play Marquette today in the semifinals (on TV for all you diehards!), and the popular theory seems to be that it may end up being a play-in game for the NCAAs. Here's hoping for a win!
And now, the "news."
