Penn State Featured in Lacrosse Magazine 30 in 30 Article - Oct 14, 2013
Following the Capital Classic fall ball event, Lacrosse Magazine, a publication of US Lacrosse, did a nice article on the Nittany Lions.
This spring will mark the Penn State men's lacrosse program's 101st season, but for all its longevity, no team in its history has won a national post-season playoff game. That's right, it's been 0-for-100 until now, and more specifically 0-for-3 in NCAA tournament games, all of which have come within the last 10 seasons.
The streak includes the last game of last season, when the Nittany Lions bowed out in the first round of the 16-team tournament to Yale. It was the first NCAA playoff game Penn State had ever hosted in State College, Pa., and first appearance under coach Jeff Tambroni, now entering his fourth season as the Nittany Lions' head coach.

NCAA Tournament Expanding to 18 Teams for 2014 - Sep 26, 2013
The NCAA Division I men's lacrosse tournament will expand to 18 teams beginning with the spring 2014 season with a pair of play-in games. The play-in games, which will continue in spring 2015, will feature the four lowest-ranked automatic qualifying (AQ) berth teams and will be played on dates to be determined, although they will be held after Selection Sunday since play-in participants will be considered official tournament participants after a change in NCAA policy announced last week.
The two play-in game winners will play the top two overall seeds in the first round.
This year's Division I men's lacrosse landscape includes 10 AQ conferences, with the Atlantic Sun having the status in its first season and the ACC welcoming Notre Dame and Syracuse to bring its number of teams to six, the minimum needed to qualify for AQ status.
The two play-in games will maintain the NCAA's 50-50 AQ/at-large tournament composition guideline for the first round, since two AQ teams will be eliminated after the play-in round. There will be eight AQs and eight at-large selections in the first round.
For 2014, The CAA has ruled that Penn State is ineligible for its post season tournament. Therefore, for PSU to get into the 2014 NCAA tournament, the Lions will have to be one of the eight at-large teams selected. PSU was an at-large selection in 2013.
