Lakers take all

·

The Los Angeles Lakers aren't the favorite to win the NBA title. Did I stutter? No two ways about it. Kobe Bryant and Shaquille O'Neal are not part of the team to beat this year. Instead, Kevin Garnett and Sam Cassell form the one-two punch that will be most feared, at least according to seedings.

Eagles dominate Midshipmen

The AU Men's Tennis team swatted Navy into the ground on the Eagles' senior day Saturday, sweeping the Midshipmen 7-0. It was a proper sendoff for AU's five seniors, who have yet to lose a Patriot League team tournament in their careers. More importantly, it kept alive AU's chances of winning the regular season Patriot League title and hosting the PL tournament in two weekends from now.

Lacrosse trumps Monmouth, 12-8

It's a good thing AU Women's Lacrosse scored four goals in the first 4:37 of the second half, for it was enough to diminish a late-match charge by the visiting Monmouth Hawks in Saturday's non-conference match. But in the end, AU held on to win, 12-8, at Reeves Field despite being outscored by Monmouth 4-2 in the final 18 minutes of the game.

Win streak ends for Tennis

Something had to give Wednesday afternoon at Reeves Courts: either the three-match winning streak of AU Women's Tennis's or the six-match streak of visiting University of Maryland-Baltimore Country. In the end it was AU's streak, and Kristina Georgieva's rackets, that gave out as the Eagles dropped the match to the Retrievers, 5-2.
