NLL prospects to watch include attackman Logan Schuss from Ohio State University and Cornell University defenseman Jason Noble with their teams set to face off on Saturday.
Schuss recorded a game-high six points (3+3) in the Buckeyes' 16-6 first-round tournament win over Towson University. The Ladner, British Columbia native, who played box lacrosse for the Delta Islanders in the BCJALL, is a top-rated NLL prospect and is expected to be one of the first draft picks off the board in the 2013 NLL Entry Draft.
Noble, an Orangeville, Ontario native, played box lacrosse for the Orangeville Northmen. The 2012 NCAA Second Team All-American helped the Big Red defense knock off sixth-ranked Maryland in the first round this past weekend while holding the Terps to eight goals in Cornell's 16-8 upset win.
