Bryant Men’s Lacrosse Opens NCAA Tournament Play Against Siena
Wednesday, May 07, 2014
The Bryant Bulldogs Men's Lacrosse team hosts Siena in an NCAA Tournament play-in game this afternoon at 4 p.m. at Bulldog Stadium in Smithfield.
The Northeast Conference Champion Bulldogs are back in the NCAA Tournament for the second consecutive season. The Siena game marks the first NCAA Tournament home game in Bryant history.
Bryant is coming off a 14-4 regular season and its 3rd straight NEC Title. The Bulldogs won all 3 of their games against Tournament teams this season.
Bryant finished the year ranked in the Top 20, but Siena presents a formidable first round challenge. The Saints rode their strong attack and midfield units to the MAAC Championship this season.
Bryant counters with some firepower of their own, with sophomore Shane Morrell leading the way with 39 goals this season. 4 Bulldogs have scored 24 or more goals this season.
On the line Wednesday is a chance to play at nationally ranked #2 Syracuse. Bryant lost to Syracuse at the Carrier Dome in the first round of last year’s NCAA Tournament. With a win on Wednesday, they’ll earn their rematch.
