Weekend lacrosse primer (March 29): Players and Games of the Week, top 20 polls

Games of the Week

MEN

No. 1 Penn State (7-1, 0-0 Big Ten) @ No. 3 Maryland (8-1, 0-0)

Sunday, 7 p.m.

Outlook: The Nittany Lions may field their best team in recent memory, but they have never beaten the Terps in 36 all-time meetings. Penn State’s hopes of breaking the seal may depend on the health of redshirt junior attackman Grant Ament (NCAA-leading 46 assists and 56 points), who did not play on Saturday because of an unspecified lower-body injury.

WOMEN

No. 7 Virginia (9-3, 1-3 ACC) @ No. 1 Boston College (11-0, 2-0)

Saturday, 12 p.m.

Outlook: The Cavaliers own a 13-4 advantage in this series, but the Eagles have won the last two games. Boston College has not lost at home since April 8, 2017, against Duke — a span of 19 games.

Players of the Week

MEN

Logan Wisnauskas, Maryland

Sykesville, attackman, redshirt sophomore

The Big Ten Offensive Player of the Week tied a career high with eight points on four goals and four assists in the No. 3 Terps’ 16-9 victory over then-No. 19 North Carolina on Saturday. Wisnauskas, a Boys’ Latin graduate, has a team-leading 46 points, which is tied for the sixth-highest total among NCAA Division I players.

WOMEN

Risa Mosenthal, Brown

Campton, N.H., attacker, sophomore

The Ivy League Offensive Player of the Week had four goals and one assist to spur the Bears’ comeback from a 9-2 deficit in the first half to secure an 11-10 upset of then-No. 10 Princeton on Saturday. In addition to a three-goal performance in Tuesday’s 22-11 loss at No. 18 Florida, Mosenthal has scored at least three goals eight times in nine games.
