In one final conference clash, the Big East’s top lacrosse teams converge on Philadelphia to divide the best from the rest during May’s championship tournament. As one of the nation’s elite programs in 2012, the Notre Dame Fighting Irish have already clinched a spot in the tournament behind quick-drawing goalie John Kemp, who boasts the conference’s best save percentage. The Villanova Wildcats, meanwhile, have also punched an early ticket to the postseason. Opting to not scorch his name into the field with a blowtorch during warm-ups, ‘Cats attacker Jack Rice instead makes his mark on each contest by averaging more than two goals per game.
The tournament’s final two teams have yet to be decided, as Syracuse, St. John’s, and Georgetown joust for the remaining spots throughout the last week of the regular season. During all three games of the championship, ESPNU cameras will rove the sidelines, broadcasting each whistling shot and chest bump between over-excited referees to a television audience.
