The 1984 NCAA Division I Men’s Lacrosse Tournament was the 14th annual Division I NCAA Men’s Lacrosse Championship tournament. The game was hosted by University of Delaware, and was played in front of 17,253 fans. The game saw the Johns Hopkins University defeat Syracuse University by the score of 13–10. The Bluejays snapped Syracuse’s 22-game winning streak.  Watching the video you see a lot of one handed loose ball pick ups.  The technique would be criticized by today’s coaches.  The goaltending was exceptional on the John Hopkins end and you can hear great communication from the defending teams.  The quality of play is outstanding and it is amazing what the players were accomplishing with their basic sticks.  It is fun to watch because the intensity and speed of the game is excellent.
