•The times have been set for NCAA championship weekend at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Mass. May 26: Division I semifinals, 2:30 p.m. and 5 p.m.; May 27: Division II championship, noon; Division III championship, 3 p.m.; May 28: Division I championship, 1 p.m.

The move bucks a recent trend of 3:30 p.m. start times for the Memorial Day game, which tournament organizers expressed as a cause for a recent downturn in attendance.

•Georgetown junior Chris Nourse is questionable to play against Maryland on Friday with a hand injury, a school official said. Nourse is considered one of the top defensemen in the nation.

•Salisbury star attackman Tony Mendes left the Sea Gulls' 16-7 win against Lynchburg last weekend with an injury. Mendes, who was once enrolled at Maryland, has a hamstring injury that he is currently rehabbing, coach Jim Berkman said. He is questionable for the weekend, and if he's used it will likely be in man-up situations only. Rhett DePol (St. Mary's) will see time in his place.

•Drexel junior attackman Nick Trizano had two goals for the Dragons in their loss against Virginia last weekend before Trizano left in the fourth quarter. The offense sputtered after he was removed from the game, but the school said he is day-to-day and expected to make a full recovery.

•Penn State attackman Ryan McGarvey left Saturday's win against Michigan with an ankle injury. He is expected to play this weekend against Notre Dame but is officially day-to-day.

•Brian Langtry, known as one of the best U.S.-born box lacrosse players, will return to Major League Lacrosse after a two-year absence. The Long Island Lizards signed him Wednesday. Langtry, who has retired from his indoor career, said his body is better now that he doesn't have the physical indoor game to worry about. "People assumed I had retired because I did so in the NLL, but I still think I can play," he said.
