For Nick Browne, a junior outfielder at Bishop Eustace, the University of Maryland was the best of three worlds: a big-time baseball program that is a managable distance from home with some familiar faces on the roster. On Monday night, Browne, who leads South Jersey in home runs with nine, committed to Maryland on a baseball scholarship. Browne also seriously considered Duke, Lafayette, and Penn. "I wasn't stressing about it, but it was tough making a decision," Browne said.

" The 6-foot-2 righthander suffered a season-ending injury to a ligament in his right elbow last year.

Chris Cloutier's heart sank. His potential championship-winning shot was stuffed in the crease. So before he shot a second time, Cloutier was nervous. The North Carolina attack shot again anyway and wouldn't be denied twice. The ball got by Maryland goalie Kyle Bernlohr and the game that repeatedly seemed out of the Tar Heels' reach was firmly in their grasp, the same way the NCAA men's lacrosse championship trophy was after a 14-13 overtime win Monday at Lincoln Financial Field.

At Thursday's championship weekend banquet at the Franklin Institute, Maryland attack Matt Rambo spent the night talking with North Carolina defenseman Austin Pifani. Tar Heels coach Joe Breschi said the two friends reminisced about the good old days, those formative years they spent as teammates at Abington Lacrosse Club. Rambo wasn't conversing with the enemy just yet. At the time, the Terrapins were focused on semifinal opponent Brown as Carolina looked to Loyola. But after winning in the semifinals Saturday, the childhood best friends will face off Monday in the NCAA Division I championship at Lincoln Financial Field.

With the cheers of the Maryland locker room in the background, Brown's Dylan Molloy hobbled to the interview room podium. Bears coach Lars Tiffany said the nation's most productive attack played with a broken foot Saturday in the second semifinal game, a 15-14 overtime win for Maryland. Molloy said the decision to play was not made at game time, not for him, at least. "I was going regardless," Molloy said. "Being on the sidelines is the hardest thing ever. " Despite his efforts, top-seeded Maryland continued its winning streak at Lincoln Financial Field, clinching its 16th straight victory and a ticket to the Division I men's lacrosse championship game.

Maryland's players met their goalie and walked slowly off the field at halftime of their NCAA women's lacrosse semifinal. Syracuse's players ran into the tunnel at Talen Energy Stadium. With Maryland leading by seven goals at the break, it made sense. The Orange had a lot to figure out. Their offense had scored only three goals and the Terrapins converted on all but one of their shots. "I think our girls really came out on fire," Maryland head coach Cathy Reese said. The top-seeded Terrapins (22-0)

As a Philadelphia sports fan, Henry Blynn couldn't help himself. He had to take a moment to look around Lincoln Financial Field and think about the Eagles who played there. The Brown attack and Haverford School grad joked that he considered crawling out of the tunnel Brian Dawkins-style before team practice Friday morning. Blynn is one of more than a dozen local players back home in the Philadelphia area this weekend to compete in the Division I men's lacrosse semifinals and championship.

Top seed Maryland (21-0, 5-0 Big Ten) enters undefeated and in search of its third consecutive national title. Four seed Syracuse (19-5, 5-2 Atlantic Coast)

Young Matt Rambo played backyard goalie. Outside his family's Glenside home or at the park down the street, his older brother Rich and Rich's friends would shoot on Matt for hours, honing their lacrosse skills. Those neighborhood practice sessions also helped Matt grow as a player, the Maryland attackman said Wednesday in the middle of a busy week of preparation for this weekend's NCAA semifinals. The junior will be back home in Philadelphia on Friday morning, practicing with his team at Lincoln Financial Field.
