On a day of wall-to-wall men’s and women’s college basketball NCAA Tournament games — did we mention Yale vs. Duke would also make for quite a lacrosse matchup? — there are also a pair of premier college lacrosse rivalry games available on TV.
An ESPNU doubleheader starts at 4 p.m. as archrivals Syracuse and Johns Hopkins square off at Homewood Field in Baltimore.
The teams are meeting for the 55th time in a series that dates to a 4-4 tie in 1921. The Blue Jays lead the all-time series 28-25-1 and won the last meeting, 16-15, in the 2015 NCAA Quarterfinals.
The University of Notre Dame game at 6 p.m. Saturday on ESPNU would be a big enough attraction if only because it features the Irish opener in Atlantic Coast Conference play against Virginia, a team making its first visit to Arlotta Stadium.
Yet the game takes on an even more personal meaning for Irish players.
The Notre Dame program Saturday joins with the Irish women’s team (the Notre Dame women play host to Virginia at 2 p.m. at Arlotta Stadium) to raise awareness for the issue of relationship violence.
The Notre Dame men’s players will wear white “FOV” stickers on their helmets in support of Friends of Victoria, the organization created in memory of Victoria McManus. Victoria–sister of Notre Dame senior lacrosse player Katherine McManus–was murdered by her former boyfriend in May 2014.
The Irish men’s coaching staff is wearing green Under Armour gear in conjunction with the Notre Dame Gender Relations Center’s Green Dot initiative to prevent power-based personal violence—as the Notre Dame men’s and women’s lacrosse programs combine Saturday in a show of solidarity in support of violence prevention strategy.
