The Division 2 men's lacrosse tournament has expanded to 12 teams for this spring, and there will be a handful of New England connections to watch for.
Split into North and South brackets, each group is comprised of six teams that are marching toward the final on May 26 at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia, Pa.
Only one of New England's nine teams qualified for the Big Dance, despite the expansion.
Starting up North, here's a complete look at all local connections to watch for on the field. Opening-round games are set for this coming Wednesday, with four teams getting byes until Saturday (May 11).
