Duke has really been on a roll, leading the NCAA Lacrosse boards at number 1. Loyola is not far behind at the number 3 spot, with Maryland close behind at number 4.

Some highlights from the Maryland season so far include a 13-point, winning season opener against mount St. Mary’s with Freshman Matt Rambo recording four goals and two assists. Their only loss of the season so far has been to the University of North Carolina – Chapel Hill. The Terps are gearing up for an upcoming rivalry game against Johns Hopkins this Saturday, April 12. The faceoff is schedule to take place at 2p.m. Now is a great time to stock up on Maryland Lacrosse apparel!

Maryland will head to Homewood Field in Baltimore, Maryland to face the Johns Hopkins Blue Jays, who are currently 6-3. The Maryland-Hopkins game will be broadcast live on ESPNU, and streamed on the WatchESPN app. Eamon McAnaney will be in charge of the play-by-play call, while Mark Dixon has been selected to provide the expert analysis. The game between the Terps and the Blue Jays can also be heard on the Terrapin Sports Radio Network's flagship station, CBS Sports Radio 1300 AM in Baltimore and surrounding areas. Steve Stofberg (Maryland '94), the voice of Terrapin lacrosse, will cover the play-by-play, while 2004 All-American Tim McGinnis will be providing the analysis.

Both teams have showed much resilience this year, and the matchup is going to be electrifying.
