CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (CBS19 SPORTS) -- The last time Virginia faced a Brown lacrosse team, Lars Tiffany was on the opposite sideline, leading Brown to a a 19-11 win. Tiffany is now in his third season at Virginia with Brown coming to Klockner Sunday afternoon.
Tiffany diverted the conversation away from his former team saying "there are plenty of players there we did not recruit." Instead, TIffany talked about this year's team and the improvements he has seen over the last two weeks.
"Isn't it wonderful when you do see progress? Even if its just little baby steps," Tiffany said. "Anything we do in life, any talent that we're trying to pursue to make it better, any skill, its wonderful to see ourselves. That race to improve and we're seeing that improvement."
Virginia (3-2) is coming off back-to-back wins for the first time this season. Both of those wins involved comebacks in the second half and led to overtime victories, first at home against Princeton and at Syracuse to open ACC play.
"Coming off two wins, I think it could be easy to just settle down," said junior attackman Michael Kraus, "but I think we're doing a really good job of emphasizing that we need to get better. Just focus on us, not focus on who we're playing. Focus on what we've got to do, what jobs we've got to get done just execute."
"As I just told the men," Tiffany added, "we've only got one chance this weekend to prove ourselves and that's Sunday against Brown."
