BALTIMORE —- Rather than an extended prediction for Monday’s NCAA lacrosse final, here’s an acknowledgment: A 1-5 record the last two rounds makes the pick with little value.
So rather than a long explanation of why, let’s just go with Virginia 8-7 in a slow-paced, low-possession game.
And if it turns out to be wrong, well, what the heck else is new.
Semifinal record: 0-2
Tournament record: 9-5
