A pair Johns Hopkins men’s lacrosse players were picked in the second round of Wednesday night’s Premier Lacrosse League draft.
Defenseman Jack Rapine was selected No. 11 overall by the Archers, while short-stick defensive midfielder Matt Hubler was taken with the final pick of the draft, No. 14 overall, by the Whipsnakes.
Last week, the PLL, co-founded by former Hopkins star Paul Rabil, announced that it will conduct a quarantined tournament without fans from July 25 through Aug. 9 in an effort to play amidst the coronavirus pandemic. The tournament will feature one week of round-robin group play with all seven teams playing four games via random draw. Teams will be ranked based on win-loss record and goal differential for a single-elimination playoff the second week. NBC will broadcast all 20 games live across its various platforms.
