Virginia Men
The big question: Can the University of Virginia complete the “Face-Off Classic Trifecta”? Virginia got past Syracuse 11-8 at M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore, as the Cavalier defense redeemed themselves after their surprise loss to Drexel. A week later, the Cavaliers squeeked past another Face-Off Classic participant, Princeton, in a 7-6 nail-biter at Klockner, settled by Ben Rubeor with just 25.4 seconds on the clock.

#2/5 Virginia returns to Baltimore on Saturday to play #3 Johns Hopkins at Homewood Field at 1:00pm. (Hopkins beat Princeton in the nationally-televised double-OT thriller that was the lead-off game in the Face-Off Classic.) For fans not able to make the trip, the game will be broadcast by both WINA radio (AM 1070 – live) and ESPN-U.

On Saturday, the Cavaliers will need to get past the likes of Hopkins freshman Steven Boyle, seen here in action against Princeton in the Inside Lacrosse Face-Off Classic, Saturday, March 10, 2007. Boyle is one of Hopkins leading scorers this year. (Click for a larger image: 102K)
