The annual NCAA Men's Lacrosse Championship tournament determines the top men's field lacrosse team in the NCAA Division I, Division II, and Division III.

This tournament has determined the national champion since the inaugural 1971 NCAA Division I Men's Lacrosse Championship. Prior to this, from 1936 through 1970, the United States Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association (USILA) awarded the Wingate Memorial Trophy to the NCAA Division I annual champion based on regular season records.

The NCAA Men's Lacrosse Championship, with the semi-finals and finals played in National Football League stadiums, is among the most attended NCAA Championships, sometimes outdrawing the Final Four of men's basketball[citation needed].[1]

Division I

NCAA Championship 2009 Syracuse vs. Cornell pregame in Gillette Stadium. Syracuse would win 10-9 in OT

The first Division I Championship tournament held in 1971 replaced the USILA and Wingate Memorial Trophy national title awards. Since then, 39 NCAA tournaments have been held. In that span eight teams — Johns Hopkins, Syracuse, Princeton, North Carolina, Virginia, Cornell, Duke, and Maryland — have won the national title, with Syracuse leading with ten titles (plus one vacated by the NCAA[a]). The initial tournament in 1971 fielded eight teams, while the most recent tournament fielded 16 teams. In all, 41 teams have participated in the NCAA tournament since its inception. Only five unseeded teams — the 1988 Cornell Big Red, the 1991 Towson Tigers, the 2006 Massachusetts Minutemen, the 2010 Notre Dame Fighting Irish and the 2011 Maryland Terrapins — have made it to the championship game, and only seven unseeded teams have made it to the tournament semi-finals, the most recent being Maryland in 2011. Johns Hopkins has appeared in every tournament, except for 1971.

Division II

Following the institution of a tournament format for Division I in 1971, the NCAA added a 'small college' tournament for all non-Division I schools for the 1972 and 1973 seasons. In 1974, a combined Division II and III tournament was played through the 1979 seasons. Division II Championship tournaments were played continually through 1981. Following a twelve year interruption, the tournament format was resumed in 1993. Lacking a tournament from 1982 to 1992, several Division II teams received invitations to the Division I tournament, including Adelphi in 1982, C.W. Post in 1986, Adelphi again in 1987 where they upset Army, and Adelphi once more in 1989 where they received a number five seeding.
