An interesting tidbit just passed along … Saturday’s seven-overtime thriller between Virginia and Maryland (a 10-9 Cavaliers victory) was named an Instant Classic, earning the full rerun treatment tonight at 10 on ESPN Classic.
That probably hasn’t happened with many lacrosse games. Of course, no other college lacrosse game has gone seven overtimes, so that’s appropriate.
And it is the full game you’ll get. The thing runs from 10 p.m. to 1 a.m., which means halftime is cut out to make it fit into the three-hour window.
