NLL entry draft: Schuss is No. 1 pick

The National Lacrosse League entry draft for 2013 is underway and, as expected, the Minnesota Swarm made left-handed forward Logan Schuss the No. 1 overall pick. The Ohio State graduate is the second B.C. product in 3 seasons to be the top pick, following the lead of Kevin Crowley (Philadelphia) in the 2011 draft. The Swarm then took Jason Noble with the No. 2 overall pick before Colorado made goalie Dillon Ward the No. 3 overall pick.
