GREENSBORO, N.C. - The Atlantic Coast Conference announced today revised seeding procedures and bracket for the 2006 ACC Men's Lacrosse Championship to be held April 28 and 30 at M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore, Md.
Following last week's decision by Duke University to suspend the remainder of its men's lacrosse season, the Blue Devils' two ACC regular season games with North Carolina (11-8 Duke win) on March 18 and Maryland (8-7 Maryland win) on March 4 will be vacated (resulting in no contests) for seeding purposes only.
