Loyola is 1-1 overall and comes into the game ranked No. 17 in the Inside Lacrosse media poll. Wagner is coming off a defeat at No. 13 Delaware and is 0-2 to start the season.
Last year, Loyola and Wagner met for the first time in program history and the Greyhounds pulled out a 13-7 win after scoring five first-quarter goals. Loyola, 1-0 at home this season, has won five of its last six at Diane Geppi-Aikens Field and will be looking for a little momentum heading into this weekend's First Four at San Diego, Calif.
Juniors Dan Bauers and Patrick Kennedy lead the team in goals with four apiece while junior Jordan Rabidou enters with a face-off percentage of .774 and a team-high 15 groundballs to go along with his three goals and two assists.
Wagner's leading scorer after two games is Tom Marchetti, who has two of the team's five goals. Tuesday's game was originally slated for a 3 p.m. start, but has been moved to noon.
