2023 NCAA D3 Men’s Lacrosse Tournament Details


There were very few surprises in the 2023 NCAA D3 Men’s Lacrosse Tournament bracket this year, while Tufts and Salisbury separated themselves as the No.1 seeds in their respective regions. Tufts finished the regular season without a blemish, becoming the first team in NESCAC history to run the table and finish the regular season undefeated. Salisbury, on the other hand, rebounded from an early season loss to Gettysburg to beat CNU twice to claim their conference title. Kenyon seemed to be the last team in after losing a close game to Denison in the NCAC Championship but owned a regular season win against them.

Unlike the other Divisions, D3 lacrosse has a grueling setup for getting to Championship Weekend. Most games are set up as back-to-backs, so roster management will be a huge thing to watch as the games progress.

There will be six first-round games today. The results of those games feed into the host sites, which will host the second and third rounds on Saturday, May 13, and Sunday, May 14, a grueling back-to-back. 

The eight host sites for the Second and Third Rounds of the NCAA Tournament are: Union, Salisbury, Christopher Newport, Tufts, Denison, RIT, Washington and Lee, and Dickinson.

The quarterfinals and semifinals are back-to-back, too, May 20 and 21. The championship will be in Philadelphia on May 28.
