I assume you've check the home team's website. Live stats, audio and livestream are listed on the schedule for that game. You might have to pay, and if you do, watch out for the small print. I found myself paying for one college's livestream monthly coverage when I thought I signed up for only one game.

Yes, I checked the USC website. Only a "live stat" option is listed. I was hoping someone knew of another resource. Thanks for the heads-up about the streaming cost, though. I'll definitely look out for that.

Maybe ESPN 3? There were a lot of games covered this past weekend. We were able to watch on the computer.

Come Thursday or Friday (I forget which), Inside Lacrosse will have a page listing all games this weekend and if there is free streaming available, they will have a link to it. Lots of games are not free. IME, the private colleges generally offer free viewing of livestreams and the state schools offer only a pay option. YMMV

Stony Brook with the nice Cali trip coming up. Tough one against USC and then cupcake against Stanford. Predictions: SB 12-10 over USC, 18-7 over Stanford

I’ll go Lehigh over PSU. PSU struggles on the back end, Lehigh had 18 last week and these teams had a very close game in the fall for whatever that means and any if they start to trail, Lions may tighten up.

Stony Brook is obviously very good. It will be interesting to see if the tougher schedule will hurt or help them this year. I think in the past their weak schedule made their record look good and everyone took notice. In the end however (not last year) they went into the tournament with an over inflated confidence. Better to play tougher competition during the year even if you do not win every game. Their schedule was tougher last year but is was still favorable with home field advantage and plenty of rest before tough games. This year will be a little different but they are a better team. It would be really great if they can make it to the Final Four, the atmosphere at SBU for Championship weekend will be awesome.

Not really. Just that Delaware is a feisty team. Not predicting a win, just looking at big upset possibilities, thought that one looked as good as any.

So I stated before games were played on the other thread that Penn St at #4 preseason was ranked too high. One guy got all up in arms ... Then they promptly go out and lose their opener. Funny. Where is "all up in arms guy" now??

Agree with you. PSU had the easiest path to the final four by far, and got blown out in the eight team bracket. How do they then get #4 rank? Towson was probably ranked correctly and ranking should have been on par with PSU. Don’t see that as an upset at all, it was two teams on par and one norrowly beat the other. It was only considered an upset because PSU was over ranked to begin with.

It is really the end of season polls that matter. Cascade Media Poll has JMU ranked ahead of North Carolina. Actually, none of the polls really matter. Seeding is important and I do not think the committee cares about the polls.

Great to see some early season upsets. Will the trend continue or will the traditional powers be there at the end of the season?

Programs that have come on strong in recent years: Stony Brook, USC, Navy, Boston College

Programs that have fallen off a bit: Virginia, Notre Dame, Loyola, Hopkins

Is Division I Women's Lacrosse a zero-sum game? Is there enough talent out there for more teams to become competitive with the top programs?

Committee cares most about geography and minimizing travel costs.

Really big game tomorrow with 2 top 5 teams SC and SB. Should be a great game being played closer to SAn Diego. Think the cross country flight and this being their first game hurts SB. I predict USC 12-9 win

Name the top schools for combination of academics and a realistic chance of playing in a final 4 in the next few years.

My list includes in order of most likely to make final 4 with great (top 20) academics:

Northwestern
Princeton
Penn
Duke?

Are those the 4 best academic schools with at least a chance of sniffing a final 4?

Navy made it last year. I do not know much about them other than they have a great coach and they have proven they can get to championship weekend.

Northwestern would be my top pic.

Toss up between Penn and Princeton.

Duke fell off a bit last year not sure how they will be this year.

Cant see Stanford, Hopkins, or Vanderbilt,

No Ivy other than Penn or Princeton.

Notre Dame and Georgetown are unlikely but maybe Notre Dame will surprise everyone you never know.

I will take SB even with the odds stacked in USC favor in terms of a long flight, and 10 pm eastern time start. I think will be low scoring affair but SB offense is considerably better than USC.

Agreed. I'd put Duke ahead of the Ivies though. Down year last year, but over next few years could have a shot. Always recruit pretty well. ND looks mediocre now but maybe in a few years. Doubt it. Stanford will be lucky to be in top 25, never mind final 4. Same with Georgetown.

Yes, those are the top 20 academic schools with the best chance to make the Final Four. But I think all of the schools that have a legitimate shot are pretty darn good academic schools as well.

USC, North Carolina, BC, Florida, Penn State, Maryland, Syracuse.

Stony Brook has improved both academics and athletics in recent years. That is the beauty of this sport. There are so many excellent schools providing opportunities for our daughters.
