1. Great crowd for lax. Too bad the game had to be at the same time as the hockey game. DU should work harder to stagger these starts so people could attend both games. I would like to have seen that Lax game - the atmosphere was great according to those who were there.

2. Nice win for the DU gymnasts. They draw well for what they do.

3. Too bad for the skiers. Can't win them all, and this year's team was really beset by injuries.

Bachers Live Game Chat suggested that some people from the Lax game drifted into the hockey game and caught some of the third period.

Having 8,000+ fans on campus at the same time created some issues.

DU did a fantastic job of letting hockey fans out on the concourse above the west steps between hockey periods, I caught some of the LAX action and saw a DU goal, that was really a class act there from DU, nicely done, might swing some hockey fans over to lacrosse. -- chase
