The B1G announced the host sites for the first two years of both the men's and women's lacrosse tournaments. The top 4 (of 6) teams will play in a semi-final round, followed by a championship game two days later. In 2015, Maryland (men) and Rutgers (women) will host the tournaments; Johns Hopkins (men) and Northwestern (women) will host the 2016 games.

It was the only North American sport to show a growth in participation over the last calender year.

I think lacrosse was a small reason Maryland was added to the B1G.  Maybe they see some future potential in the expansion of the game's popularity.  Makes sense to me.

We should see the lax part of the B1G expand before too long. MSU was a varsity team for a long time before going club. And every B1G school has at least an MCLA team. Lacrosse is expanding greatly as a youth sport, especially out west. Should see a great deal more than six teams competing in the near future.

Good choices - Hopkins and College Park should definitely draw well.

There's already a lot of buzz here (UMD) on campus and there are only a small amount of students taking summer classes.
