Little lacrosse tidbit on a Wednesday afternoon ...
Virginia's game at Syracuse was shifted from March 6 at 1 p.m. to March 4 at 6 p.m. The reason? Pretty safe to say that it's Tee-Vee. Indeed, the game will be on ESPNU.
In this case, moving that game so a national audience can see it is a very good thing. No lacrosse series is quite as much fun as Cavaliers-Orange, particularly early in the season when teams are likely to respond to offense with more offense rather than a greater commitment to defense.
Here's Virginia's updated regular season schedule:
