Men’s Lacrosse Championship Preview


Casey Ikeda, Jay CarlsonPHILADELPHIA – 12 months ago, Denver and Maryland made it to Memorial Day Weekend as part of lacrosse’s final four, but for both the Pioneers and the Terps, that’s where the journey ended, with semifinal losses to Duke and Notre Dame respectively.

In 2015, however, the road for one team will end with a national championship after Denver prevailed in overtime over Notre Dame and Maryland outlasted local rivals Johns Hopkins.

Ahead of Monday’s championship game, which we’ll have for you on Westwood One beginning at 12:45pm ET, our Dave Ryan and Mark Dixon caught up with the head coaches for each team as well as Denver’s overtime hero from Saturday, Wesley Berg.
