Hoos host Johns Hopkins Sunday.

The 2015 Men's Lacrosse NCAA tournament bracket was released this evening, and the Virginia Cavaliers will play host to the Johns Hopkins Blue Jays on Sunday at 1pm.

Here's the full bracket, with the first round games being played May 9-10.

Denver Regional

No.1 Notre Dame vs. Towson/High Point

No.8 Cornell vs. Albany

No.5 Duke vs. Ohio State

No.4 Denver vs. Brown

Annapolis Regional

No.2 Syracuse vs. Marist/Bryant

No.7 Virginia vs. Johns Hopkins

No.6 Maryland vs. Yale

No.3 North Carolina vs. Colgate

All five ACC teams made the field, and all will be hosting the opening round.

One of the most interesting matchups of the first round includes Albany vs. Cornell in Ithaca. Lyle Thompson is a scoring machine, and not many predicted the Big Red would be hosting a game. The two teams met in Texas early in the season in a game Cornell won in the middle of a freak ice storm. Albany also road tripped via bus all the way back to New York following the game thanks to issues with their flight.

Georgetown and Princeton just missed the cut. Ohio State snuck in as they made the inaugural Big Ten Tournament finals before falling to the Big Ten's automatic qualifier, Johns Hopkins.

Virginia took down Hopkins in the regular season behind a killer comeback and a game winner from Greg Coholan. Hopkins eliminated Virginia last season in Charlottesville in the first round, after the Hoos defeated them in the regular season. In overtime. Sounds familiar.

Come out to Klöckner Sunday at 1pm to cheer on the Hoos and drown out that Blue Jay pep band.
