Mens's Lacrosse: Hokies and the MCLA National Championships
The Hokies were seeded 14th. FOURTEENTH!? Holy crap. No respect I tell ya but you have to earn respect and the Hokies have a great opportunity to do that very thing on Monday. #14 VT drew #3 BYU in the first round slated to play at 4:30 Monday, 14 May in Greenville, SC.
Brigham Young is ranked #2 in the last regular season MCLA Nike National Coaches Poll. VT is ranked #11. They've played an impressive schedule and are highly ranked every year, they're very good. At 16-3 over all, they've played 6 of the top 10 in the final poll:
#1 Cal Poly
#3 Colorado State (x2)
#24 Simon Frazier
Tech has played a solid schedule of their own playing half dozen ranked teams this year also. The final poll for those teams is not as impressive however:
Tech also played #12 Boston Unv but they fell out of the top 25 by year's end. Of the listed teams above, the Hokies manged a 5-1 record only losing to SUNY Buffalo by two after slapping them around in the first half to the tune of 5-0. If you count Boston, that's 6-1. I'm excited about this game.
This is why you stick it out all these cold nights and long days on the practice field, to be and play the best of the best.You can also watch it on your computer live at the link below the bracket. Let's get it on! GO HOKIES
