WEST POINT, N.Y. - Former men's lacrosse standout Garrett Thul '13 and Team USA are ready for the Federation of International Lacrosse World Championships in Denver and all games can be seen on multiple ESPN Networks.

Team USA will play a minimum of five games on ESPNU and be featured in the event's pool-play opener against Canada at 9 p.m. ET Thursday, July 10, on ESPN2. The game is a rematch of the 2010 championship game, which Team USA won 12-10.

The semifinals and championship games game will be televised on ESPNU on Thursday, July 17 and Saturday, July 19, respectively. ESPNU's coverage begins with Australia vs. USA on Saturday, July 12, at 7 p.m. ET, and ESPN3's package starts with the Netherlands vs. China on Friday, July 11, at 10 a.m. ET

The FIL World Lacrosse Championship includes a deep roster of experienced and knowledgeable analysts: Paul Carcaterra, Mark Dixon, Quint Kessenich and Jamie Munro. Play-by-play announcers include Joe Beninati, Mike Corey and Booker Corrigan.

A three-time All-American at Army, Thul holds the program record for career goals with 163, which lands second on the Patriot League's all-time goals list. A three-time Patriot League first team honoree, he is the only player in program history to record three 40-goal seasons (2010, 2011, 2013).
