Virginia, ranked No. 7 in the USILA coaches poll and No. 8 in the Warrior/Inside Lacrosse media poll, enters the NCAA Tournament with 10-5 overall mark. Johns Hopkins, ranked No. 6 in both the coaches and media polls, earned an at-large berth and enters the NCAA Tournament with a 10-4 record. 

The winner of the Virginia-Johns Hopkins first round game will meet the winner of Sunday’s first round game between the Air Force-Richmond winner and Duke (No. 1 seed) in the NCAA quarterfinals.  The quarterfinal game will be held at Delaware Stadium, in Newark, Del., on Sunday, May 18. The quarterfinals will be televised on ESPNU in HD.
