The 2001 NCAA Men's Lacrosse Championship game was played at Rutgers Stadium in front of 21,268 fans.[2] A Princeton goal with 41 seconds remaining in the first overtime period lifted second-seeded Tigers (14-1) to a 10-9 victory against top-seeded Syracuse (13-3). With the victory, Princeton earned its sixth national championship (1992, 1994, 1996, 1997, 1998) in ten years. This marked the fourth time that the Tigers had won the title game in overtime.

The victory was the 11th straight for Princeton in one-goal games, including all three of its tournament games. Most outstanding player B.J. Prager scored the game-winner, his fourth tally of the day, with 41 seconds left in the five-minute overtime period.
