Canada beat the Iroquois National team 12-8 to win gold. They've never lost a game in the tournament's history.

Indoor lacrosse is serious business. It's played on a turf field that's just about the same size as a hockey rink, and there are the same amount of players playing per team as the ice sport, just subtract the skates and add sticks with netting. The pace of play is much different though. Hockey is sort of half transitional and half setting up with the puck on your opponents side. Indoor lacrosse is almost entirely stationary. Teams with possession can simply jog over to the other side and get into formation.

Meet Osun Mau, an undecided sophomore from Canada.

Osun Mau is a sophomore at Syracuse University who hopes to major in pre-med but for now focuses on taking science classes. Mau is also a Canadian citizen. 

As a freshman, Mau sat through classes offered by the International Student Team at SU, which she says included a Facebook tutorial and explanations of colloquialisms that many American students often use. 

While she says she can appreciate that many students are helped by those classes, she does not believe they are for her.

The men's basketball team will be heading north to play exhibition games in Canada. The NCAA allows teams to go on foreign tours once every four years and the Orange are using this opportunity to visit Canada August 20th through the 25th.

The trip will be a homecoming for incoming freshman Tyler Ennis. The point guard is a native of Brammpton, Ontario, and a member of the Canadian under-19 team that will be competing in the 2013 FIBA Under-19 World Championship.

Review: Canadian pop star Lights mesmerizes a giddy crowd at the Lost Horizon Saturday night.

Lights fans aren’t your typical mild-mannered concertgoers.

The Canadian pop star's fans shouted impulsive marriage proposals, exclamations of jealousy and showed excessive giddiness at the Lost Horizon during her set Saturday night.

The folk-rock stand-bys ranted and roared to an adoring crowd at yesterday's Westcott Theater performance.

Let’s get something out in the open right now: the accordion is sexy.  I thought so before last night’s performance of Canada’s Great Big Sea, and now I’m ready to challenge anyone who tells me otherwise.  It’s the one instrument that rock bands avoid, and the one instrument that can get people on the dance floor without any persuading.

Canada is quickly becoming the next great country for hot music, like Sweden has proven over the years, and Parlovr is Canada's latest contender.

With gust-busting drumming, seismic crashing hooks and addictive melodies, Parlovr is my latest Canadian crush.

So many great bands are bursting out of Canada now and have been for years, like Tokyo Police Club, Crystal Castles and Metric, just to name a few. It's also no wonder Parlovr sounds a lot like the next coming of Canada-great, Arcade Fire...
