The NCAA Division II Men's Lacrosse Championship is the annual championship in men's lacrosse held by the NCAA for teams competing in Division II.[1]

Following the institution of a tournament for Division I in 1971 by the NCAA, the United States Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association added a "small college" tournament for two years for all non-Division I schools (winners: 1972 Hobart, 1973 Cortland State).[2] Beginning in 1974, a combined NCAA Division II and III tournament was played through the 1979 season, after which separate divisional championships were instituted. The Division II championship was discontinued after the 1981 season. Following a twelve-year interruption, the tournament 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.
