From: DU Athletics Website

University of Denver lacrosse coach Bill Tierney announced that the Pioneers will play Cornell University on Tuesday, March 20 at Hofstra's James M. Shuart Stadium in Hempstead, N.Y Opening face-off is slated for 2 PM MT.
"The goal for the University of Denver Men's Lacrosse program is to play the best schedule and against the best teams available," Coach Tierney said. "Cornell University has one of the most storied programs in the country and its 2012 team will offer the Pioneers a huge challenge, but one we look forward to. When Coach DeLuca provided us the opportunity to compete with Cornell over spring break, on Long Island, we could not pass it up. The NCAA rewards strength of schedule greatly and with the addition of the Big Red and their outstanding group of players, we have made our schedule even stronger. Our ECAC slate and non-league games against Duke, Notre Dame and now Cornell provides our young men with one of the most challenging schedules in the country."

I would be nice to get the New York area DU alums out for that.

God knows, half of Cornell's alumni either live on (or within an hour) of Long Island.

Cornell pretty much filled Shuart last year when they played VA before the DU/Hopkins game in the NCAAs at Hofstra last year. Should be a good game against the Big Red this spring. I plan on going.
