PHILADELPHIA - The rosters have been set for the 71st annual United States Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association/LaxWorld Division I-II Senior North/South Game, and three Penn players will be involved in this year's all-star contest -- John Conneely, Dan Savage, and Will Koshansky.
Conneely finished the 2012 season as Penn's leading scorer, with 21 goals and 34 points. He was the Ivy League Player of the Week in March after leading the Quakers to a win over North Carolina. Conneely had three hat tricks this season and was one of just two players on the team to record a point in every game.
Koshansky earned second-team All-Ivy for the second straight season, one in which he moved from long-stick middie to close defense. The senior had 24 grounds balls and 16 caused turnovers.
Savage began the season on the Tewaaraton Award Watch List, and finished the year with 24 points which was third on the team. He moved from midfield to attack after a few injuries depleted the Quaker lineup. Savage had hat tricks this season against Duke, UNC, Cornell and Virginia.
This annual kickoff to the NCAA's championship weekend will take place Friday evening at Harvard Stadium in Cambridge, Mass. The Division III game will be played at 3 p.m., with the Division I/II game at 5:30 p.m. Tickets for the game will only be sold on-site. The NCAA championship games for all three divisions will take place Saturday through Monday at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Mass.
