The University of Denver men's lacrosse team has unveiled its 2013 schedule, and it's one of the school's toughest to date.

The Denver Pioneers lacrosse team has unveiled its 2013 schedule, and it's one of the school's toughest to date.

The schedule, which opens against Duke in Durham, N.C. on Saturday, Feb. 9, features five teams that participated in the 2012 NCAA Men's Lacrosse Tournament including champion Loyola University.

Pioneers head coach Bill Tierney is looking forward to his squad's schedule:

"We are very excited about our 2013 schedule, the most formidable one in DU history. The ECAC slate, which will be a great challenge for us, includes the 2012 NCAA Champion Loyola Greyhounds, as well as Fairfield and Ohio State, who each beat us by a goal last year. Our nonconference schedule ranks up there with the hardest in the country, as we will face off against Notre Dame, Duke, Lehigh, Penn State, Penn and others."

Having a strong schedule plays an important role in a team's chances to be included in the NCAA Tournament, which should bode well for a Denver team that finished 9-7 overall and 3-3 in the ECAC in 2012.
