Denver swept Ohio State last season en route to an appearance in the Final Four.
The Pioneers entered today’s matchup against unranked Ohio State at No. 5 in the latest rankings.
But expecting the unexpected has quickly become the new reality in major Division I lacrosse, and Ohio State came away with a 10-9 win in the first game of a doubleheader in Jacksonville, Fla.
Logan Schuss had five goals for the Buckeyes, with former Baldwin (N.Y.) High School star Dominique Alexander excelling in the roll of playmaker as Ohio State effectively ran a ball-control offense in a game broadcast on the NBC Sports Network.
Navy and host Jacksonville are meeting in the second game of the doubleheader, which is also being broadcast on the NBC Sports Network.
In action yesterday, Notre Dame upset No. 2 Duke and Virginia barely avoided another shocker, edging Drexel 9-8.
