Big Ten Lacrosse Tournament TicketsThe Big Ten Lacrosse Tournament is a single-elimination sports competition that is significant because the winner of it receives the Big Ten Conference's automatic bid to enter the NCAA Men's Lacrosse Championship. The single-elimination format states that the loser of each match is immediately eliminated while the winner goes on to compete against other contenders in the tournament. One of the longest standing grudges between two lacrosse teams in the Big Ten League is between the service academies: the Naval Academy's Goat and the Army's West Point Mule. The Big Ten Lacrosse Tournament features players of such quality as Johns Hopkins' Blue Jay Brandon Benn, who carried a 17-game goal-scoring streak in the 2014 season to make it the fourth-longest active streak in the nation.

Who are some of the coaches of Big Ten Lacrosse Tournament teams?Dave Pietramala coaches the Blue Jays of Johns Hopkins and is regarded as one of the top defensemen of all time during his playing years. In 2000 and 2002, he was named national coach of the year and was inducted into the US Lacrosse Long Island Chapter Hall of Fame. Another notable lacrosse coach is John Tillman of the University of Maryland, whose 21–8 career NCAA Tournament record places seventh of all time in NCAA annals.
Who are some notable players from the Top Ten Lacrosse Tournament?Blue Jay Ryan Brown of Johns Hopkins tied with teammate Brandon Benn for the most goals by a Johns Hopkins player in 2015. Brown is just the fourth sophomore in Hopkins history to score 40 or more goals in one season. The Stanwick brothers Shack and Wells played for Hopkins and their older brother, Tad, played at Rutgers in an ongoing family tradition. Wells Stanwick was a standout player even in secondary school, where he was the second all-time leading scorer in Boys' Latin history with 123 goals and 169 assists. Under Armour tapped Wells for their All-American award, and he made finalist for the C. Markland Kelly Award.
What are some notable rivalries that take place in the Big Ten Lacrosse Tournament?The venerable teams of Maryland and Johns Hopkins own up to rivalries dating to 1895 and show their almost equal status in nearly every statistical lacrosse category, such as goals per game, goals allowed per game, shots per game and saves per game. Another lacrosse rivalry is between the US Naval Academy and Johns Hopkins, who first competed in 1908 when they were independent teams. That rivalry is threatened as the two teams are currently in different divisions and will not play against each other in some seasons.
What team has won the most championships in the Big Ten Lacrosse Tournament?The honor goes to both the Maryland Terrapins and the Johns Hopkins Blue Jays with two wins each.
What team was the 2019 champion?Penn State wrested victory from Johns Hopkins in an 18–17 battle won in overtime. This time Head Coach Jeff Tambroni looks to leverage his Nittany Lions returning players Dylan Foulds, Mac O'Keefe, Grant Ament and Jack Kelly into a blockbuster team in the race for the title in 2020.
