2007 Division I Tournament Bracket

May 6, 2007

Washington, D.C. - The Georgetown University men's lacrosse team was seeded No. 6 in the 2007 NCAA Tournament and will face Princeton in the first round on Sunday, May 13 at the Multi-Sport Field on the Hilltop. Face-off for the game, which is slated to be broadcast live on ESPNU, is slated for noon.

The Hoyas will meet Princeton, who posted a 10-3 record during the regular season and finished second in the Ivy League with a 5-1 mark. The winner of that game will face the winner of a matchup between No. 3 seed Johns Hopkins (9-4) and Notre Dame (11-3).

There are 16 teams in the NCAA Tournament, with seven automatic bids and nine at-large bids. The top eight teams are seeded and all teams play in a single-elimination format. First round games are played at home sites while the quarterfinals will be held at Princeton and Navy. Should Georgetown win its first round game, the Hoyas would advance to play in an NCAA Quarterfinal game at Princeton on May 19 or 20.

The NCAA Semifinals and Championship will be held on May 26 and May 28 at M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore.

Duke (14-2) was the top seed in the 16-team field, followed by defending national champion Virginia. Johns Hopkins (9-4) was seeded third, followed by Ivy League champion Cornell, America East champion Albany, Georgetown, Maryland and North Carolina.

The matchup with Princeton will be the sixth meeting between the teams. The Tigers lead the head-to-head series, 5-0, including a 14-13 win over Georgetown during the 2002 NCAA Quarterfinals

Georgetown advances to the NCAA Tournament after posting an 11-2 record in the regular season, including a perfect 7-0 mark in the ECAC. The Hoyas posted a 9-4 win over Penn State on Saturday to extend their win streak and finish with a perfect mark in the league. The Blue and Gray have won six ECAC titles since the league was formed (2000, 2001, 2003, 2004, 2006, 2007), including three of the last four years.

This will be the 11th-straight NCAA Tournament appearance for the Hoyas, making them one of only two schools nationwide to reach each of the last 11 postseason tournaments.

The Blue and Gray have an all-time record of 9-10 in 10 previous appearances, all under 18th-year head coach Dave Urick. The Hoyas have advanced to the NCAA Quarterfinals in each of the last five seasons and in eight of the last nine overall. Georgetown will be looking to reach the Final Four for the first time since the 1999 season.
