Loyola Men’s Lacrosse To Be Featured On National Television In 2014

BALTIMORE – Loyola University Maryland men’s lacrosse and Ridley Athletic Complex will be featured on national television broadcasts at least three times during the upcoming 2014 season.

The Greyhounds’ home games against Duke University (Sunday, March 9; 6 p.m.), Bucknell University (Thursday, April 17; 7 p.m.) and Johns Hopkins University (Saturday, May 3; 12 noon) will air live on CBS Sports Network as part of the Patriot League’s continuing partnership with the network.

Loyola’s game against Duke pits the past two NCAA Champions in a rematch of last year’s NCAA Tournament First Round game that was one of the year’s top affairs. The Blue Devils edged the Greyhounds, 12-11, in double overtime.

The Greyhounds and Bucknell were picked 1-2, respectively, in the Patriot League Preseason Poll that was announced earlier this week, and the game against Johns Hopkins is always one of the top showcases in the sport between two schools that are separated by only a mile.

In addition to the three scheduled regular-season broadcasts, Loyola could appear on CBS Sports Network at least two more times. Both Patriot League Semifinal games (Friday, April 25; 4:30 and 7:30 p.m.) and the conference title game (Sunday, April 27; 1 p.m.) will air live on the network.

Loyola’s four other home games, and most of its Patriot League road games will air live in free HD streaming on the Patriot League Network. Available at www.PatriotLeague.tv, the broadcasts are available on computers, smart televisions and most mobile devices.

The Greyhounds kick off their 2014 campaign in less than a week when they travel to Charlottesville, Va., for a 7 p.m. contest on Thursday, February 6, at the University of Virginia.
