#3 Duke Hosts #2 Virginia, Huge B1G, Patriot, AE & Ivy Matchups Looming (LaxFactor Podcast #254)
We're at the stage of the college lacrosse season where every game has huge conference tournament and NCAA tournament implications. While #3 Duke hosting #2 Virginia only plays into NCAA tournament seeding, as both of these teams have done enough to lock up their spots, it should still be a must watch game on Saturday.
The rest of the field has a lot more to play for than just seeding and bragging rights. Boston University's tilt against #20 Loyola is huge for both teams as Loyola is currently on the bubble, and Boston University could position themselves on the bubble if they can win out. Army hosting Cornell is the last non-conference matchup for both teams and represents each teams last chance at picking up a high RPI win. North Carolina just about "punches their ticket" for an at large bid if they can beat Syracuse on Saturday, and for the Orange, their only hope of staying a live and getting a potential at large bid will require a W on Saturday against the Heels.
Moral of the story, there are a lot of very important lacrosse games being played this weekend, but I'll dive a bit more into the games I'm featuring in this episode.
