Baltimore Johns Hopkins men’s lacrosse, coming off an 8-7 mark in 2016, will host Denver in a scrimmage at Homewood Field on January 28 followed by the Georgetown Hoyas on February 3/4.

The last time Bill Tierney‘s Pioneers traveled east to Homewood to start their season, in January 2015, they went on to capture the national championship on Memorial Day to conclude it. The Hoyas will look to bounce back from a disappointing 2016 campaign that saw them go 2-12 after a 10-6 season in 2015.

The Blue Jays have yet to release their 2017 regular season schedule, but it is expected to include traditional non-conference foes Navy and Loyola Maryland, in addition to their Big-Ten schedule.
