Wow, another piece of huge news on just a wild day. And think, none of it is basketball-related.

The NCAA announced today the 2010 and 2011 lacrosse championship weekends will be held in Baltimore at M&T Bank Stadium. The event will head back to the Boston area (and Gillette Stadium) in 2012.


Baltimore hosted the final four in 2003, 2004 and 2007. Boston had it last year and will again this spring.

I’ll have a little analysis of this later on (after a pending press conference here in College Park), but it’s a good development for Baltimore to have such a marquee event back for two more seasons.
