Bill Tierney Goes For 300th Career Win Today

DU Lacrosse vs. Michigan
1:30 PM Barton Stadium

From: Denver Post

University of Denver lacrosse coach Bill Tierney is looking for his 300th career win this weekend when the Pioneers host the four-team DU Face-Off Classic at Peter Barton Stadium.

But more importantly — if you ask him — 11th-ranked DU is looking for its first win of the season. DU last week opened its season ranked No. 5, but started with a 10-9 loss to Ohio State in Florida

"We're disappointed in that loss, not because we lost but because we didn't feel like we played our best," said Tierney, whose career record is 299-102 over 27 seasons. "But we're going to look forward and stay positive."

The Pioneers face Michigan at 1:30 p.m. Saturday. Air Force plays Robert Morris at 11 a.m. Then DU and AFA swap opponents Sunday.

Michigan Head Coach John Paul:

On today's game ... "Obviously, Denver is an elite team and an elite program. In a lot of ways they are what we want to become."

We took care of business. But in Michigan's defense, a brand new program, and I want to be sure we celebrate their involvement in the sport and welcome them, this helps the sport and one day soon they will be excellent.

Great turnout by Michigan's fans on Saturday.

Fun to see the Michigan helmets.

I'd expect that Michigan will be DU's likely opponent in Mile High once they get their program rolling.
