The U.S. men’s senior team will play defending NCAA champion Denver, the U.S. women’s senior team will play games against NCAA tournament participants Florida and Syracuse, and the U.S. men’s U19 team will play archrival Canada in an early preview of two of the top medal contenders for the 2016 Federation of International Lacrosse U19 World Championship.
