Thanks to the NCAA’s geography rules, this could start becoming a regular thing.

Marquette men’s lacrosse is headed back to South Bend for a second time this season.

The Golden Eagles will play Notre Dame in the first round of the NCAA tournament. Since the Fighting Irish are ranked #4 in the field, they will be playing host to Marquette, the Big East tournament champion for the second straight year. The game will take place on Sunday, May 14, with face-off set for 11am Central.

Notre Dame went 8-5 this season, with a 2-2 record in the ACC. One of ND’s wins was an 11-10 affair against Marquette where Sergio Perkovic scored the game winner on his sixth goal of the game with 23 seconds left to play. Marquette had more than their fair chance to win the game after Joe Dunn had knotted the game at 10 with 7:56 left to play.

Denver is the only other Big East team in the field, earning a #5 seed. The Pioneers will host Air Force on Saturday, with face-off scheduled for 4pm Central.
