The U Albany Great Danes lacrosse - led by the return of All American Connor Fields - squashed the Richmond Spiders in front of thousands of soggy, yet enthusiastic fans,  yesterday afternoon 18-9.  The Dane Train rolls on and next Saturday they take on a more formidable opponent down on Long Island on the campus of Hofstra University.  The Danes - the #2 seeded team in the championship tournament - are one of 8 teams left vying for the NCAA Division I Championship.

Time will be 2:30 p.m. on Saturday.  The game will be aired nationally on ESPNU. Denver defeated 7-seed Notre Dame 9-7 on Sunday afternoon in South Bend.  Denver was an NCAA semifinalist last season and the two teams have some history.  UAlbany and Denver last met in the NCAA First Round on May 11th, 2013 in Colorado.  Denver won that game 19-14.
