A crowd estimated at 2,000 packed the church for the funeral of slain UVa lacrosse player Yeardley Love on Saturday. One day later both teams accepted bids to their NCAA tournaments.

Friends, family, fellow students and lacrosse players from across the region filled the Cathedral of Mary Our Queen in Baltimore on Saturday.

The next day, both both teams received word of their NCAA tournament seedings.
The Cavaliers men's team was given the top seed in the 16-team field. Virginia will host Mount St. Mary's at 7:30 p.m. Saturday. It will not only be the first game for the team since the program was rocked by the slaying, but also since coach Dom Starsia's father died after a long illness Friday.

The UVa women's team was given a No. 6 seed and will play at home against Towson on Sunday.
Both teams decided to play on with the support of Love's family.

Three other ACC men's teams also received bids. Third-seeded Maryland will host Hofstra, and fifth-seeded Duke hosts Johns Hopkins. Both games are set for noon Saturday.
Fourth-seeded North Carolina will host Delaware at 5 p.m. Sunday.

In the women's bracket, top-seeded Maryland hosts Marist at noon Saturday, Navy plays at third-seeded UNC at noon Saturday, and seventh-seeded Duke hosts Vanderbilt at 2 p.m.
