Today’s Game of the Day
St. Louis Lafayette (Mo.) at St. Louis Cor Jesu (Mo.)
On May 14th of last year, Lafayette ended Cor Jesu’s season in the postseason. This should be an absolute barnburner as the Chargers seek revenge in yet another game which would also be a dream matchup on the hockey field.
As of the end of play yesterday, who are the two remaining undefeated teams in Division I women’s lacrosse?
And how many of you would have expected Notre Dame, a team with a first-year head coach replacing a long-time stalwart, as one of the two?
Nope, I didn’t, either.
The Irish didn’t arrive at their 7-0 record through blind luck; indeed, they have the third-highest RPI ratings in the latest computer model. But the Domers are all they way down in 24th when it comes to strength of schedule.
This with Georgetown, Syracuse, and what should be an eye-popping showdown on April 24th against that other unbeaten team, Northwestern.
I can’t wait to see how that one turns out.
