Four Local Teams Make Lax Tourney
I'm not the biggest lacrosse fan you'll find, but the seeding for the tournament have been announced, and four local teams have made it this year. Hopkins gets Brown at home, Navy gets #3 Duke, UMBC will travel to UNC, and Maryland gets #7 Notre Dame.
The big question going in was whether Maryland and Loyola would make it. In this case Loyola didn't get in, and the analysis says it was because of their strength of schedule.
Considering that the experts though UMBC would be going to Duke, the UNC match-up is somewhat surprising. The last two years they've played ACC teams, beating Maryland in 2007 at College Park, and losing by one goal to Virginia last year. I know we've got some Tar Heel fans on this site, but I think the game is winnable, at least I hope so.

I was going to move out of my apartment in Clemson on Sunday to come back home, but now I think I'm moving that up to Saturday. I'm trying to plan my drive that I hit UNC like an hour before game time and then finish the drive after the game. It will be awesome to see UMBC play at UNC. I hope I can make that happen. It's good cause UNC is right off 85 so I don't have to stray too much to be able to go.

Unfortunately UMBC lost today 15-13. Very disappointing, but a great season regardless. It would be great though if some day soon the team gets to the Final Four and pulls a Navy type streak of stunning everyone. I only hope that day will come soon.
