About the Game
Coming off its first victory of the season, the Stony Brook men's lacrosse team hosts No. 6/6 Virginia on Saturday afternoon.  The Seawolves' original home opener against Fairfield was cancelled due to the blizzard that slammed Suffolk County on February 9.  The Cavaliers have won each of the 10 previous contests with the Seawolves, including an 11-10 victory in overtime in 2011, the last time UVa faced SBU in Stony Brook.  

Scouting Virginia
The Cavaliers come to Long Island with early-season victories over Drexel (13-12) and VMI (18-4).  Rockville Centre native Nick O'Reilly leads Virginia with 12 points (5g, 7a).  Mark Cockerton has a team-best six goals.  Garden City native Dan Marino is the starting goalie and owns an 8.65 GAA and .581 save percentage.
