Men's soccer: Orange earns No. 9 seed for NCAA tournament

SU's tournament appearance is only the third in school history.

The Syracuse University men's soccer team is seeded ninth in the 2014 NCAA Division I Men's Soccer Championship, SU Athletics announced in a press release Monday.

The Orange will receive a first-round bye and face either Penn State or Hartwick in the second round at SU Soccer Stadium on Nov. 23 at 2 p.m. SU is one of seven Atlantic Coast Conference squads in the 48-team field that will vie for the title.

"We're delighted. Any time you see your team's name pop up on the screen, it's a special moment," Syracuse head coach Ian McIntyre said. "For us to enjoy that together was important, and now we will prepare for two quality teams in Penn State and Hartwick."

The match will be the first home NCAA championship contest in program history. SU is 2-1-1 all-time in the tournament.
