A glorious run by the men’s lacrosse team came to an end on Monday at the hands of the Duke Blue Devils in the NCAA Championship game. The Irish had been on a roll of late, winning the ACC Championship and coming out victorious in their first three games in NCAA play. Take a second to watch the highlights from Monday’s NCAA Championship Game.
Now what did we miss …
1. Connaughton Gears Up For Draft (NBCSports.com)
