CIRCLE THESE DATES
2/19 at Jacksonville: Five of Marquette's all-time meetings against Jacksonville have been decided by two goals, including the last three matchups. The Dolphins snapped a four-game losing streak to the Golden Eagles in 2020 down in Florida with Jacob Greiner scoring five goals in the win.
3/19 at Robert Morris: An underrated midwestern lacrosse matchup the past two meetings in 2019 and 2020. The former was highlighted by a seven-goal first quarter by Robert Morris followed by an eight-goal second quarter by Marquette with the Golden Eagles holding on for the win. The following year was a back-and-forth contest with Brad McCulley scoring with four seconds left in regulation to give the Colonials the win.
4/2 vs. Providence: Marquette's Big East Tournament hopes might be decided in their first two conference games against Providence and Marquette. The Friars and Golden Eagles split their meetings last year, highlighted by Marquettes quadruple overtime win in Providence. The Friars scored four goals in the final quarter, the most by any team in any quarter in the game, including the tying goal with nine seconds left. Devon Cowan won the game for the Golden Eagles with three seconds left in the fourth overtime. Who knows how long that game would've went if he didn't score that goal.
4/9 at St. John's: After the Friars comes a road trip to Queens to take on the Red Storm. St. John's has been in the basement of the Big East for the past few years, but it has given Marquette a run for their money recently. Three of their last four meetings have been decided by a goal, with two of those games needing overtime. The Madsen twins have graduated, but St. John's still has Jonathan Huber at attack and Brody Agres in goal.
