The UVA men's lacrosse team has its regular season finale on Saturday, as the Cavaliers host Bellarmine University from Louisville, Kentucky for Senior Day.

Virginia has a record of 5-7 and has lost six straight games for the first time in 74 years, and now must win-out to make the NCAA tournament.    Bellarmine has a record of 7-4.

The Cavaliers scored a season high 16 goals last week in a loss at Duke, and the guys believe they're ready to make a strong push for the postseason.

Senior attackman Matt White says, "We're working hard, and we fully expect to win the rest of these games and sneak into the tournament, and anything can happen from there."

Head coach Dom Starsia adds, "There have been positive signs in each of the games. It's just a matter of playing a complete game, and putting both ends together, as much as it is anything else."

UVA and Bellarmine will square off Saturday at 1pm at Klockner Stadium.
