Denver Men’s Lacrosse Takes Down Second Top Ten Team In 3 Days With 15-11 Win Over Penn State


Paced by a five-point performance from junior Erik Adamson (Anaheim Hills, Calif.), the No. 9 University of Denver men’s lacrosse team stunned the No. 5 Penn State Nitany Lions 15-11 on Monday night at Peter Barton Lacrosse Stadium in front of 1,816 fans. The win bumps the Pioneers to 5-2 on the season, while Penn State falls to 3-2. “I have to give these guys a lot of credit the way they pulled out this win tonight,” said head coach Bill Tierney. “They pulled out two really tough wins against top-10 teams in just two days. This Penn State team is a really good lacrosse team and I’m so proud of our guys with the resolve that they showed. It’s not easy to play a weekend like this, especially against two teams of this caliber, so I have to not only thank our players but our entire coaching staff for being able to not only get everyone physically ready, but also mentally prepared.” Adamson finished with his third hat trick of the season, sixth of his career, as he netted four goals and tallied one assist for five points. The Big East Offensive Player of the Week followed up his six-goal performance against Notre Dame on Saturday by targeting five-of-his-eight shots on net, while also grabbing one ground ball and causing one turnover. Freshman Tyler Pace (Mission, B.C.) netted his first collegiate hat trick as he placed six-of-his-nine shots on cage. Junior Wesley Berg (Coquitlam, B.C.) and sophomore transfer Jack Bobzien (Littleton, Colo.) both finished with three points off two goals and an assist a piece. Junior Sean Cannizzaro (Cazenovia, N.Y.) and freshman Zach Miller (Steamburg, N.Y.) both finished with two points each of a goal and an assist, while senior Jeremy Noble (Orangeville, Ontario) and junior Mike Riis (Carlsbad, Calif.) both finished with a goal each. Riis’ goal was the first of his career and the first by a Pioneer long-pole this season. Noble also finished with a game-high seven ground balls and a game-high three caused turnovers.

New “Big Ten Women’s Lacrosse Conference” Features Maryland Women’s Lacrosse, Northwestern And Penn State, Who Combined Have Won 19 Of The 32 NCAA Championships


Big Ten Women's Lacrosse Maryland

Big Ten women’s lacrosse will feature teams that have won 23 national championships and 19 of the 32 NCAA championships, including eight of the last nine. Maryland has won 11 national championships, with 10 NCAA crowns, including seven straight from 1995 to 2001 and most recently in 2010. Northwestern has claimed seven NCAA titles, highlighted by five consecutive from 2005 to 2009 and most recently in 2012. Penn State has earned five national championships, including NCAA titles in 1987 and 1989. The Terrapins, Wildcats and Nittany Lions earned berths in the NCAA Women’s Lacrosse Championship this season. Penn State advanced to the quarterfinals, Northwestern reached the national semifinals and Maryland was edged in triple overtime in the national championship game.
“To be a part of a conference from the ground up is exciting for our program and we are anxious to put our thumbprint on Big Ten lacrosse,” said Maryland women’s head coach Cathy Reese. “It is going to be a highly competitive league and with former Terps coaching at five of the six institutions, I believe there is a lot to be excited about as we make this transition in 2014-15 and begin a new chapter in the rich history of Maryland women’s lacrosse.”
With the addition of Maryland and Rutgers in 2014, the broad-based athletic programs of the 14 Big Ten institutions will sponsor nearly 350 teams in 42 different sports with almost 9,500 student-athletes, more than any other conference. The Big Ten currently features 25 official conference sports, 12 for men and 13 for women, but is set to add men’s ice hockey as the 26th conference sport in the fall. Men’s and women’s lacrosse will become the conference’s 27th and 28th official sports in 2014-15.

NCAA Lacrosse: Johns Hopkins Men’s Lacrosse To Join “Big Ten” Conference Along With Maryland, Michigan, Ohio State, Penn State And Rutgers


Big Ten Lacrosse

The Blue Jays would join Maryland, Michigan, Ohio State, Penn State and Rutgers presumably after the 2014 season, when Maryland and Rutgers are slated to leave the Atlantic Coast Conference and Big East, respectively.

After 130 years as an independent in men’s lacrosse, Johns Hopkins will be  joining the Big Ten. An announcement has been scheduled for Monday morning when the university  will confirm the move, according to sources and a published report.

The news conference will be held at 11 a.m. at the Cordish Lacrosse Center on  Johns Hopkins’ campus in Baltimore.

Big Ten and university officials would not comment on the move.

The addition of Johns Hopkins will give the Big Ten its sixth member – a  requirement for the conference to earn an automatic qualifier to the NCAA  tournament.

The announcement comes 17 days after a seven-member special committee  recommended May 17 that the university seek conference affiliation after the  team had spent the past 130 years as an independent.

During an ensuing conference call with athletic director Tom Calder and coach  Dave Pietramala, Pietramala had said that he would like the Blue Jays to begin  conference play in 2015.

Johns Hopkins’ move is the latest in the conference realignment wave in men’s  lacrosse. In 2011, Syracuse announced that it would leave the Big East for the  ACC, and Notre Dame followed the Orange in September. The month before the  Fighting Irish’s announcement, Loyola, which captured the national championship  in 2012, said it would switch from the Eastern College Athletic Conference to  the Patriot League for the 2014 season.

In November, Maryland and Rutgers announced that they would join the Big  Ten.
