From staff reports and press releases
The NCAA Division I semifinals that will be played Saturday at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia will be shown on ESPN2.
No. 1-seeded Notre Dame faces No. 4 seed Denver at 1 p.m., followed by Johns Hopkins vs. No. 6 seed Maryland at 3:30 p.m.
The 2015 season will culminate with the national championship Monday at 1 p.m., also on ESPN2. The title game will also air on ESPNU via the Spider Cam feed – an alternate viewing fan experience that is integrated into the traditional telecast.
Denver and Notre Dame are in search of their program’s first lacrosse national title, and one will have a chance to compete in the title game Monday.
The Hopkins/Maryland rivalry, which started in 2924, is the longestin college lacrosse. Hopkins is in pursuit of its 10th national title and first since 2007. Maryland won its last and second overall national title 40 years ago (1975).
Hopkins, which has been mourning the sudden death of freshman Jeremy Huber in January, began the season with a 4-6 record but has won the last seven games in a tribute to their teammate.
The telecast will use 10 cameras, including the Spider Cam and the High Speed Nac Camera.
Microphones will be worn by all three game officials during the semifinals and championship, providing on-field dialogue throughout the telecast with periodic switches to each official.
Eamon McAnaney, a former Notre Dame defenseman, will handle play-by-play, joined by analyst Quint Kessenich and analyst/sideline reporter Paul Carcaterra.
During their college careers, Kessenich (Johns Hopkins goalkeeper) and Carcaterra (Syracuse midfielder) both helped their teams earn four NCAA Championship berths and each won a national title with their respective teams.
Host Anish Shroff and analyst Ryan Flanagan (UNC All-American defenseman) will cover the National Semifinals from ESPNU’s Charlotte, N.C., headquarters.
Major League Lacrosse player and former Johns Hopkins standout Paul Rabil joins the telecast Saturday to discuss the last time his alma mater played during Championship Weekend, his senior season in 2008.
