After coming close the last couple of years, the Ohio State men's lacrosse team finally punched through, knocking off top seed and No. 4-ranked Denver 11-10 in the ECAC tournament championship game Saturday at Boswell Field in Geneva, N.Y.

Sophomore Turner Evans netted the game-winner, his fourth of the day, with 24 seconds remaining.

The victory brings the league's automatic NCAA tournament bid to the 10th-ranked Buckeyes. Pairings for the 16-team bracket, set to begin Saturday and Sunday, will be announced tonight at 9 p.m. on ESPNU.


UPDATE: The Buckeyes are the #3 seed and face Towson in the first round on May 12 at 3pm in Indianapolis.
