NCAA men's lacrosse comes to Giants Stadium

The inaugural NCAA Men's Lacrosse Big City Classic is the first time that lacrosse has been played at Giants Stadium. And the action promises to be top-notch. The six teams invited to play—including last year's champ Syracuse (whose most famous lacrosse All-America was Jim Brown) and current leader Virginia—have reached the NCAA semifinals a combined 67 times and won 24 NCAA championships. Bob Carpenter, publisher of sponsor Inside Lacrosse magazine, says, "Nothing on this large a scale has been organized for the lacrosse spectator experience. . . . It will be more than coming to watch a couple games—it will be a festival."
