Coming off back-to-back Big Ten titles and winning the national championship last season, Maryland men’s lacrosse has been tabbed as the favorite to top the conference again in 2023 by the league’s coaches.

The Terps went on an absolute roll last season, going undefeated and winning the NCAA title with an 18-0 record. They were the top-ranked scoring offense in the nation with 17.67 goals per game. Maryland also held the no. 4 scoring defense, allowing just nine goals per game.

Despite losing their leading goal scorer, assister and Tewaaraton Award winner Logan Wisnauskas, Maryland still has a lot of talent on a squad ready to protect its throne. The Big Ten’s coaches evidently believe that the Terps have enough to reload and become conference champions for the third straight season.
