Bearcats confident they can outperform preseason poll

The BU Men's Lacrosse Team is picked to finish 5th in the America East Preseason Conference poll. They return a lot of veteran experience on the defensive end, but the attack is relatively young. Should the offense develop as they expect it to, the Bearcats believe they can finish higher than fifth.

In the first four years under Head Coach Scott Nelson, the Bearcats have matched or surpassed their projected place in the preseason polls.

"I think we can be pretty good," Nelson said. "It's a great conference and it's getting better every year. Schools are putting more and more into it in our conference and people care about it. Certainly if we can win games in our conference we're pretty good and we're going to have to win the close ones to do that."

BU opens the season on Saturday on the road against Colgate.
