Duke lacrosse is in the postseason again and has a legitimate shot at the title: the Blue Devils enter the tournament as the #2 seed. They’ll open with Richmond.

Lacrosse has traditionally been an East Coast sport and mostly dominated by teams in the DC area and New York/Pennsylvania.

This year is not too different. The field consists of:

  1. Penn State
  2. Duke
  3. Virginia
  4. Penn
  5. Yale
  6. Towson
  7. Notre Dame
  8. Loyola
  • Marist
  • UMBC
  • Syracuse
  • Georgetown
  • Army
  • Robert Morris
  • Maryland
  • Johns Hopkins
  • Richmond

The only geographic outliers are Duke and Notre Dame.

Modern lacrosse is a tough game but it has nothing on the original game as played by the Iroquois, who called it the Little Brother of War. Their games had 100-1,000 on each side and could last for days.
