Maryland Lacrosse NCAA Tournament Gamethread: Terps vs Bryant

Matt Cashore-USA TODAY Sports

Maryland meets Bryant this afternoon, in a huge NCAA QF match-up.

Last weekend's win was exhilarating. Maryland completed an improbable comeback, beating Cornell 8-7. But it's time to put that to bed. Maryland is one win away from a trip to Championship Weekend for the 3rd time in 4 years under John Tillman. But that win will not come easy. Bryant is a very good team, and they're going to give Maryland a big test. These two teams are very similar, and it's bound to be a close one.

Maryland enters at 12-3, and the No. 7 seed. Bryant enters at 16-4 and is unseeded.

These two teams are extremely similar and they had many personnel similarities. They had the top two FOGO's in the nation, Kevin Massa for Bryant and Charlie Raffa for Maryland. And IMO the top two goalies. Gunnar Waldt for Bryant, and Niko Amato for Maryland.

So how about some predictions?

Who wins? And why?
