Bryant Bulldogs are the men's lacrosse team of the week
Bryant University scored two impressive victories last week, an 11-10 overtime victory against then-No. 2 Brown and 18-5 rout of Wagner, to for NCAA.com Team of the Week honors.
Bryant (7-3) trailed Brown by three goals with just 2 ½ minutes to play when Ryan Sharp and Tom Kennedy paired for a series of unanswered scores. Brown pushed its score to 10 with 53 seconds to play, but Tucker James found the net with 27 seconds remaining on the clock.
Shane Morrell scored the Sharpe-assisted OT winner to clinch Bryant’s victory in the Ocean State Cup in Providence.
"The phrase going into the game was regardless of what happened in the rectangle, we were not going to flinch," Bryant head coach Mike Pressler said. "We were going to stay the course tonight, good, bad or different for the full 60 minutes and not be rattled by an adversity or deficit along the way."

Bryant then dismantled Wagner. Leading 8-3 in the third quarter, the Bulldogs erupted for 10-consecutive goals in its Northeast Conference home opener.
The Bulldogs next play at Saint Joseph’s Saturday, April 16.
