JOEY ASSASSIN. JOEY BALLGAME. There are 3 certainties in life--death, taxes, and Joe Robertson ripping his opponent's heart straight out of their chest cavity in overtime.
What a sick, twisted son of a bitch. I don't know if anybody else has done this off the top of my head but I have a feeling we're witnessing the most clutch season in college lacrosse history. First up we had the overtime game winner against UNC in the beginning of April.
Then just a couple Thursdays later, it was JoRo in OT again against Virginia.
The Charlottesville native put the 'Hoos away for his 2nd OT winner of the season.
So when Duke and Loyola went to overtime this afternoon in the 2021 NCAA Quarterfinals, you'd have to have mashed potatoes for brains to bet against Joe Robertson doing the thing again. Luckily my brain is fantastic.
Duke is heading back to Championship Weekend. UNC punched their ticket yesterday in overtime after Rutgers gave the 1-seed everything they could handle. And then Virginia shit pumped Georgetown right from the get go to head back to Memorial Day Weekend to defend their national title. So we've got 3 ACC teams advancing out of the quarterfinals in the first 3 games. Notre Dame vs Maryland will determine if the final four just becomes the unofficial ACC Tournament this year.
