LM Podcast with Sheehan Stanwick Burch: BC's At-Large Hopes, Laura Merrifield and Conference Tourneys

Laura Merrifield's five goals in Maryland's comeback win over UNC earned her ACC championship MVP honors.

CBS College Sports analyst and former four-time Georgetown All-American Sheehan Stanwick Burch has joined the Lacrosse Magazine team. In addition to weekly columns, Sheehan will join Matt DaSilva in an audio podcast each Wednesday taking on the big news in women's lacrosse, with newsmakers chiming in as guests on the show.

In this week's podcast, Matt and Sheehan provide post-ACC tournament analysis -- including if Boston College did enough to earn an at-large NCAA tournament bid -- and try to make sense of the madness ensuing in the Big East and Ivy League. (Segment 10-1)

This week's featured guest is ACC championship MVP Laura Merrifield of Maryland, who talks about her journey across the pond from England, her height and the Terps' ability to overcome injuries to key players. (10-2)

Also, we break down the big games to watch this week, including conference tournaments in the Patriot League and Atlantic 10 and crucial non-conference games in Northwestern-Virginia and Penn State-Princeton (10-3).
