I think the issue people have is you constantly calling out BC when other teams/schools are doing it as well. While that doesn’t make it right, it is interesting only BC gets called out on this forum.

You are soft.

You seem to be projecting but don't worry they make a medication for that Mr.Softy. The funny thing is I remember a future BC player at some all star type thing doing the same thing when it was LI team 1 vs Team 2 and getting cross checked in the mouth .I think she was looking for her teeth on the field.

Endless whining and complaining. Kids train their entire life and commit 4-5 hours per day as D1 athletes to compete at the highest level and give maximum effort and you complain when on occassion a team or player scores a late goal in a lopsided game. At times it does not look good but I find it hard to fault the players or really care that much. Heck, for an elite team most games are over by halftime. When exactly should the better players stop scoring? I tend to defer to the coaches on how to handle things from a sportmanship standpoint - when to stop scoring or sub certain players out.

The problem is, you only get recognized if you score a goal in the lacrosse world. You can play against the worst team but score 8 goals and it’s plastered all over social media. You can take 20 shots, not share the ball, only score 5 to the detriment of your team and you’re a Tewaaraton finalist. What about all the CT’s and GB’s and clears that get those attackers the ball. Flashy play and a lot of goals and you’ll get recognized. Hence causing selfish play. IMHO consistent , non selfish players are the best players.

Wow,again just complete uneducated non sense. First off your exaggeration of kids training 4-5 hours a day in women's lacrosse shows you are either clueless or prone to hysteria. Its not on occasion for certain teams and players. You find it hard not to care much, would you care if some kids gets hurt when the opposing team has a player who retaliates for the embarrassment. Maybe those Elite teams should play harder schedules. You have alot more faith in these coaches who actually have contracts that pay them more per player who receive certain accolades thus encouraging then to let players run up their stats and schedule blow out games .

4-5 hours absolutely not an exaggeration if you include conditioning. Not sure how much you think they train.

I know how much they train and it’s much less than 4-5 hours a day which includes conditioning , weight lifting , film and actual practice . Apparently your girl plays at a school that breaks the ncaa rules .

First off why the laugh out load out load , oh I get it you have the mind of a child . Your poor daughter must lose a lot if that’s what you keep telling her , does she know about your obsession with being soft , sounds like you have a medical issue or perhaps it’s more psychological in your case .

If they did not poach players from other teams the BC team would be out of top 10 possibly the top 20 . The only thing soft is the ability of BC to recognize and develop talent .

Clarification with regards to the transfer portal. The player initiates the portal, not opposing teams. Once a player enters the portal they are available to other teams. If you have a program that attracts transfer players you can’t let it go to waste. A program risks severe penalties if they initiate the conversation.

The real question to ask is why does a player enter the portal. Also, does a program that ignores portal players have a higher moral standard? It’s the reality of all college sports.

If they did not poach players from other teams the BC team would be out of top 10 possibly the top 20 . The only thing soft is the ability of BC to recognize and develop talent .

Why the distaste for BC? They are not doing anything different then any of the other schools. Everyone has their reasons for leaving their current school - MANY different reasons. If you put yourself into the portal, you may OR may not get picked up by another school.

If you dont think players are contacted prior to entering the portal you are mistaken and it can be something as simple as a friend from the team reaching out. Some schools its very difficult to transfer into undergrad as they may not accept many transfer credits .

Well put. I don’t agree that programs, including BC, “poach” players. Men’s basketball and men’s football have far more portal activity.

They are not being contacted by school staff. The penalties are quite severe. If there was ever a connection made between a coach asking one of their players to “reach out” the penalties are more severe. Players speaking to other players, outside of the school staff, is as old as the sport.

Good point regarding academic transfers.

Permissible Communication

Q1: What steps must a Division I student-athlete take to speak to other schools about transferring?
A1: Division I student-athletes must complete the Division I Transfer Module and notify their current school in writing of their desire to be entered into the NCAA Transfer Portal. Student-athletes may not speak to other schools about transferring directly or indirectly through others (e.g., family member, scholastic or nonscholastic coach, advisor, former teammates) until they receive notice that they have been input into the Transfer Portal. Please consult the Division I Notification of Transfer resource.
» Undergraduate students: The majority of undergraduate student-athletes in Division I may only be entered into the Transfer Portal during the sport-specific transfer window for their sport. A campus compliance administrator will clarify when an undergraduate student-athlete is able to be entered into the Transfer Portal during a particular time of year, including whether any exceptions apply to a student-athlete’s circumstances (e.g., their head coach takes a new job).
» Postgraduate students: Student-athletes who are on track to complete their undergraduate degree by end of the year (e.g., two semesters) may be entered into the Transfer Portal at any time.


Q2: What happens if communications occur with athletics staff or boosters at the Division I school to which a student-athlete ultimately transfers prior to when the student-athlete first appeared in the Transfer Portal?
A2: Communicating with another Division I school’s athletics staff prior to entering the Transfer Portal can jeopardize a student-athlete’s future eligibility at that school.
Existing recruiting rules prohibit communicating with a student-athlete who is enrolled at another Division I school prior to the student-athlete appearing in the Transfer Portal. These rules extend to indirect contact made by third parties on the student-athlete’s behalf (e.g., family member, scholastic or nonscholastic coach, advisor, former teammates). Certain violations of these rules can constitute a significant breach of conduct as it
relates to the NCAA infractions process.

If you don’t think there is communication between coaches and players through intermediates, you are being naive. There are back door deals before the athlete even puts their name in the portal. These are facts. Happened to my son.

IWLCA Players of the Week – March 5, 2024



The IWLCA has chosen eight student-athletes for the IWLCA Player of the Week awards for the week ending March 3, 2024. This weekly award recognizes the best offensive and defensive performances by players in Division I, II, III, and the NAIA each week during the regular season.
DIVISION I


Offensive Player of the Week

Izzy Scane – Northwestern University

In a highly anticipated rematch against No. 1 ranked Boston College, Scane delivered a stellar performance by netting an impressive five goals. Her contributions were instrumental in securing the 14-11 victory over the Eagles, accounting for over one-third of the team's total goals. Scane continued her scoring streak in the following game against Central Michigan, where she added four more goals to her tally. This outstanding display also represented a historic milestone for Scane as she surpassed the all-time points record, cementing her status as the leading points scorer in Northwestern history with an impressive career total of 401 points. With Northwestern’s success this past week, the Wildcats have reclaimed its No. 1 ranking in the latest ILWomen/IWLCA Division I Poll.

Defensive Player of the Week

Tori Cini – College of the Holy Cross

In a historic victory against UMass, Cini delivered a remarkable performance, setting a career-high with 17 saves. This victory marked the first time Holy Cross had defeated UMass since 2009. Cini faced a formidable total of 37 shots and impressively allowed only 10 goals throughout the game.


DIVISION II


Offensive Player of the Week

Sydney Tiemann – Maryville University

In Maryville’s non-conference matchup against Quincy University, Tiemann kicked off her week by showcasing her offensive capability, tallying four goals and tying her career-high with three assists. She also secured seven draw controls and scooped up four ground balls. Tiemann's standout performance continued against No. 23 ranked Colorado Mesa University, where she led the Saints to an impressive double-digit victory by netting six goals. Additionally, she dominated in the midfield with nine draw controls and added another ground ball to her stat line.

Defensive Player of the Week

Ashlee Wargo – Bentley University

Wargo's stellar play between the posts was pivotal in Bentley's commanding 16-9 road victory, as she made a total of 11 crucial saves with an impressive 55.0 percent save percentage. She collected four ground balls and played a key role in shutting down Mercy's offensive opportunities, holding them to a 0-4 conversion rate on free positions.


DIVISION III


Offensive Player of the Week

Gracie Giannettino – University of Rochester

Giannettino’s strong offensive performance led the Yellowjackets to an upset victory over No. 15 St. John Fisher, marking their first-ranked upset in over two decades. Giannettino netted a game-high six goals on eight shots, all of which found the mark on goal. The junior attacker also converted all three of her free-position attempts, playing a pivotal role in establishing an early lead with two first-half scores. Giannettino was responsible for all three of the Yellowjackets' third-quarter goals and her fourth-quarter goal further solidified Rochester's advantage, putting them up by two scores, 9-7, with just over 12 minutes remaining in the game.

Defensive Player of the Week

Tess Brown – Keene State College

In the Owls' commanding 18-10 victory over University of Hartford, Brown recorded an impressive stat line. She contributed offensively with four goals and five assists, while also making a significant impact defensively amassing 12 caused turnovers, 12 ground balls, and 10 draw controls in the matchup. Notably, her 12 caused turnovers in a single game rank as the second-highest in program history.

NAIA


Offensive Player of the Week

Jill Mello – Reinhardt University

In a thrilling 15-14 victory against Savannah College of Arts and Design (SCAD), Mello netted an impressive six goals, including the decisive final goal for the Eagles with approximately two minutes remaining in the game.

Defensive Player of the Week

Madison Hasty – Reinhardt University

In Reinhardt’s triumph over SCAD, Hasty's standout performance featured her making 14 crucial saves while confronting 25 shots from the opposition. Additionally, she contributed to the defensive effort by scooping up two ground balls and dishing out a caused turnover.

This was an interesting week for Stony Brook. It went 1-1 for its only week against ranked teams; exciting win at Syracuse in OT, disappointing loss to a good John Hopkins squad at home. It’s the only real gauge for this team for the season. The balance of the schedule is against CAA teams and non-ranked non-conference games. Any loss is a “bad” loss from now until the tournament.

Why is that interesting? Isn't that usually the case for Stony Brook? Their schedule has never been on par with other traditional Top 10 Programs. Over the years Stony Brook has had a weak record verse Top 10 opponents and an abysmal record vs Top 5 opponents. That said, maybe this is the year they finally get over the hump.

The fact that you want to put it out here that it was "intentional" is pretty sad. Was it a horrible hit, yes..... was it handled poorly, yes....was it done intentional, no!
