It's NCAA Lacrosse's Biggest Stage...except for the whole NCAA Tournament thing. The Big City Classic is go. Here's the schedule...
- Rutgers (5-3) vs. St. John’s (2-6) - 1 p.m. EST, ESPN3.com
- No. 6 Johns Hopkins (6-2) vs. No. 5 North Carolina (7-2) - 4 p.m. EST, ESPNU
- No. 1 Syracuse (7-0) vs. No. 3 Duke (8-2) - 6:30 p.m. EST, ESPNU
If you need a reason to watch the earlier games, well, the Orange still play Rutgers and St. John's, so some advanced scouting would be good. As for Hopkins and North Carolina, if the Orange want to win another NCAA Title, they're probably going to have to play at least one of those teams in the tournament.
But of course, today's all about beating the pants off Duke. That's our National Title. And we're taking it back.
