Men's Lacrosse Earns Berth In NCAA Tournament

Greyhounds travel to Albany for first-round match-up

 

 

May 6, 2007

 

Baltimore, Md. - The Loyola men's lacrosse team is back in the NCAA Tournament and will play at Albany this Saturday. The Greyhounds earned an at-large berth and a No. 12 seed in the 2007 postseason with a 7-5 overall record in the regular season and a second-place finish in the ECAC.

 

"We're just happy to be back," says Loyola Head Coach Charley Toomey. "I give a lot of credit to this senior class for stepping up and putting Loyola Lacrosse back on the map. Albany will be a tough opponent, but right now, I'm just happy to still be playing."

 

Loyola's inclusion into the NCAA Tournament marks its 15th appearance in program history. The Greyhounds have advanced to 12 Quarterfinals, two Semifinals and one Championship Game appearance since 1988.

 

The Greyhounds last appeared in the NCAA Tournament in 2001 and advanced to the Quarterfinals with an 11-9 win over Georgetown in the First Round. The 'Hounds then dropped a one goal decision to Princeton in the Quarters.

 

This year's bracket will put the winner of Saturday's game in Albany in the Princeton Regional. Loyola will co-host the NCAA Championships Memorial Day weekend at M&T Bank Stadium.

Wow, Cornell goes 13-0, gets all the first-place votes for #1 on the Nike/IL Poll, yet they still get the #4 seed? What's up with that? Strength of Schedule maybe?

 

 

Yes, the graphic they put up on the U was :

Duke SOS -1

Wins vs Top 10 teams 7

 

Cornell SOS 19

Wins vs Top 10 teams 2

 

BTW : ESPNU also mentioned the maac was 10-52 OOC this season. That is a .161 winning percentage

Regarding Cornell, that'll do it. As far as the MAAC goes, something never change, eh?

Should the Danes win on Sunday, and then catch the quarterfinal game on 5/20, the seniors would be missing their graduation. Definitely a big weekend, but something tells me those involved wouldn't mind making that sacrafice.

 

 

ESPNU said the qtr at Princeton was Saturday 5/19.

Articles in today's Gazette - Marr says power ratings and strength of schedule are the main criteria for seeding in the tournament; Cornell dropped because the Ivy is weaker than usual this year.

 

Sixteen Capital Region players on ten teams are competing in the tournament.

Cornell Staff was at Fallon Field scouting for Saturday.

 

They were sitting (standing, actually) about 2 or 3 rows above me during the game. As they were leaving at the end of the game, I asked them if their scouting notes said "Albany is good"...they laughed and said "Albany's more than good." They were shaking their heads after some of our crazy circus shots that went in. They definitely won't be surprised by what we bring to the table.
