* WHAT'S AHEAD: Vs. Division III Washington College Saturday at Homewood Field.

* FACEOFFS: In his debut as Johns Hopkins' coach, Tony Seaman took a 15-10 licking from his best friend in lacrosse, Princeton's Bill Tierney. It was Tierney who turned down the Hopkins job before Seaman took it . . . The Tigers knocked Hopkins out of the NCAA tournament last year by one goal, but look a lot stronger this season. Mike Morrisey, Seth Tierney (Bill's nephew), Drew Burns and Adam Wright scored two goals apiece for Hopkins . . . Freshman Scott Bacigalupo (St. Paul's) excelled in the goal for Princeton.

LOYOLA (1-0)

* WHAT'S AHEAD: At Virginia Saturday (1 p.m.). The Greyhounds left yesterday for a week of training in Florida over spring break and will stop in Charlottesville, Va., on the way back. The Cavaliers, 9-5 last year, were No. 3 in the coaches' preseason poll behind Syracuse and Loyola. They have 17 lettermen back.

* FACEOFFS: Coach Dave Cottle was pleased with Loyola's offense in the 17-9 opening win over Rutgers but less than thrilled by the defense: "We gave up too many sloppy goals. We didn't force them to make good plays to score. We'll have to be better than that against Virginia. We were terrible." . . . Kevin Beach scored five goals for Loyola.


* WHAT'S AHEAD: Vs. Duke Saturday (1 p.m.) at College Park. For the No. 11 Terps, No. 20 Duke will serve as a good warmup for their March 16 date at No. 8 Towson State.

* FACEOFFS: The Terps opened with a 17-6 rout of Franklin & Marshall Friday . . . Mark Douglas and Rob Wurzburger each scored five goals.


* WHAT'S AHEAD: Opening game at Division III St. Mary's Wednesday (3 p.m.); at Lehigh Saturday (2 p.m.).

NAVY (0-1)

* WHAT'S AHEAD: Vs. No. 12 Rutgers Saturday (1:30 p.m.) at Annapolis.

* FACEOFFS: No. 10 Navy bowed to No. 3 Virginia, 14-7, yesterday at Charlottesville in the rain before 1,137 . . . Kevin Pehlke (Calvert Hall) scored a career-high six goals for Virginia; Garth Appelt (Loyola High) had two goals and Andy Kraus had a goal and three assists . . . Matt Pawlikowski led Navy with two goals and freshman Tom Roszko had a goal and two assists . . . The Midshipmen were on the short end in shots (48-22), ground balls (62-39) and faceoffs (18-8).


* WHAT'S AHEAD: Season opener at Villanova Saturday (1 p.m.). Villanova isn't ranked, but the No. 8 Tigers' next opponent is; they face No. 11 Maryland March 16.

UMBC (0-0)

* WHAT'S AHEAD: The Retrievers will open their 21st season under coach Dick Watts by entertaining Marist Saturday (1:30 p.m.).
