Team USA Roster Announced for Jan. 10 Exhibition vs. Denver

from press release

BALTIMORE, Jan. 4 – US Lacrosse has announced the U.S. Men's National Team roster for this weekend's exhibition against 2015 NCAA champion University of Denver at the inaugural Team USA Spring Premiere in Bradenton, Fla. The game is set for 11 a.m. ET Sunday, Jan. 10 at IMG Academy, and will be streamed live on USLacrosse.org.

The 24-player roster includes nine players from the 2014 U.S. men's national team that earned the silver medal at the Federation of International Lacrosse (FIL) World Championship in Denver, Colo. The exhibition is John Danowski's first game as head coach of the 2018 U.S. men's national team, which will go for a record 10th gold medal at the 2018 FIL World Championship in Manchester, England. Team USA's assistant coaches and support staff were announced in December.

The University of Denver, led by head coach Bill Tierney — who guided Team USA to a gold medal at the 1998 FIL World Championship — won its first NCAA title in May with a 10-5 victory over the University of Maryland.
