2024 NCAA Women’s Lacrosse Tournaments: Schedule, TV Channels, College Championship Scores

Northwestern has been the team to beat in NCAA women’s lacrosse all season. Now it’s time to see if the Wildcats can win back-to-back national championships.

The 2024 NCAA Tournament kicks off May 10, with the Wildcats (15-2) ranked as the top seed overall. However, the 2023 champions are not one to repeat, as evidenced by the two losses on their resume and two close calls in the Big Ten Tournament en route to the NCAAs.

Northwestern’s top challenger is 2021 champion Boston College (16-3), which will look for its second title amid a painful recent run in NCAAs. The Eagles have played in six straight championship games and lost all but one.

BC enters the tournament high after winning the ACC Tournament and hopes to avenge a home loss to Northwestern in the regular season when it really matters.

The balance of power in women’s lacrosse lies squarely on the ACC-Big Ten axis, with Syracuse, Notre Dame, Michigan and Virginia also expected to compete for the title.

Here’s how to watch all the action heading into the national championship.
