Briggs powers UVA to NCAA men's lacrosse title

      BALTIMORE (AP) – Narragansett's Colin Briggs scored five goals and
seventh-seeded Virginia edged Maryland 9-7 Monday in the NCAA men's
lacrosse championship.
      Briggs, a former All-American at Hendricken, did not play in Saturday's semifinals after being
suspended due to a violation of team rules.  He scored three times on
uncontested shots and twice beat defenders 1-on-1, earning the most
outstanding player award.
      Matt White scored three times and Nick O'Reilly had a goal and
four assists for the Cavaliers.
      Grant Catalino had two goals and an assist for unseeded Maryland
(13-6). Goalie Niko Amato made eight saves.
