It's rare in my opinion that the #1 seed needs a win in a #1 VS #2 match up more than the #2 seed does but that's the case this Saturday. The number one lacrosse team in the country Albany Great Danes travel to the second seeded Maryland Terrapins this Saturday at noon and the pressure in on UAlbany.

The reason this is a "must win" for Scott Marr and the Great Danes is this, The Danes only play one more high profile team this season. Meanwhile the Terrapins are featured on the Big Ten network or better for the rest of their games. Basically if Albany loses Saturday they would need Maryland to tank and they would need to annihilate Yale in April to get a sniff of the top spot again. Just one more reason to watch Albany take on Maryland at College Park Saturday at noon on the Big Ten Network.
