Providence, R.I. – Fresh off a sensational 2016 season that culminated in an NCAA Semifinal appearance, Brown men’s lacrosse starts anew with first-year head coach Mike Daly announcing his team’s 2017 schedule.
The Bears are fully stocked to defend their Ivy League Championship and make another trip to the NCAA Tournament with the return of three All-Americans, including senior attackman Dylan Molloy, the 2016 Tewaaraton Award recipient as the nation’s top player, senior LSM Larken Kemp, a first team All-American, and senior second team All-American defenseman Alec Tulett.
Brown, ranked eighth in the Maverik National Media Poll, will play five of its first six games at home, starting with the season opener against Quinnipiac on Sunday, February 19 at Stevenson-Pincince Field.
