Carrier Dome

In anticipation of one of the biggest games of the year, students have been camping out at the Carrier Dome for the best seats at Saturday's SU-Villanova showdown.

There is a buzz surrounding the SU campus this week, and it’s not because students are back for spring semester classes. Saturday, the third ranked men’s basketball squad will welcome seventh ranked Villanova into the Carrier Dome.

All eyes will be on the No. 1 ranked SU men's lacrosse team as the Orange aim for a third national championship in four years.

February cannot come fast enough for the Syracuse men’s lacrosse team. That’s when the Orange kick off the 2011 season, and can officially put last year’s abrupt and unexpected finish behind them.

Coming off of back-to-back national titles in 2008 and 2009, the highly ranked Orange were primed to make it three in row. However, the Black Knights of Army had other plans, stunning Syracuse in double-overtime of the first round of the NCAA tournament.

See highlights from the Orange's latest victory, which included 21 points from Kris Joseph.

The Syracuse Orange kept its unbeaten streak alive with a 83-77 win over the Iona Gaels on Saturday in the Carrier Dome.

Junior forward Kris Joseph led SU with 21 points, while freshman Dion Waiters added 12 points.

The Orange (11-0) play host to two more games this week in the Carrier Dome with Morgan State tonight at 7 p.m., and Drexel on Wednesday at 7 p.m.

SU escaped with another narrow victory in the Carrier Dome against N.C. State Saturday night.

The old saying in sports is no matter how arduous a task or how ugly it is, a win is a win, even if you’re a top ten college basketball team. The eighth ranked Syracuse Orange have played in a few tightly-contested games more than head coach Jim Boeheim’s liking. They continued their cardiac-kid style of play with a 65-59 victory over North Carolina State Saturday night at the Carrier Dome.

Syracuse stomped instate foe Cornell by 20 points Tuesday night, but SU head coach Jim Boeheim was not happy with his team despite the big win.

Jim Boeheim has seen his share of good and bad basketball during his 35 years as coach of the Orange. Tuesday, Syracuse beat Cornell by 20 points, outrebounded the Big Red by 21 and held the visitors to 34 percent shooting. Following that performance, Boeheim was less than impressed.

Syracuse drops its season finale to finish off a dismal 2010 home season.

Syracuse capped off a lackluster home season Saturday as they fell to former conference rival Boston College, 16-7. The Orange offense sputtered most of the game and BC running back Andre Williams had a career day, as the Orange dropped their fourth straight in the Carrier Dome. 

After jumping out to a 7-3 start and securing the school’s first bowl game since 2004, the Orange had a chance to compete for a BCS bowl. Instead, Syracuse sputtered down the stretch, dropping its final two games with uninspiring performances.

The Orange survived a scare Sunday slipping by William & Mary 63-60 in the Carrier Dome.

Last Sunday Jim Boeheim didn’t hold any punches back when he spoke about his team during a post game press conference after defeating Canisius. “Right now, we’re the most overrated team that I’ve ever had.”

Most fans thought Boeheim said it to motivate his squad, but if that didn’t work William & Mary did enough to get his team’s attention.  On Sunday, SU survived a thriller in where they only led by two points at the half, and were knotted in a tie with less than two minutes left.

The Orange finished off its conference season with a 23-6 home loss to the disappointment of the Carrier Dome crowd.

Syracuse University football has been rejuvenated this year no doubt. The clinching of bowl eligibility is proof. But as much as this team has improved, last night’s offensively stagnant 23-6 loss to the Connecticut Huskies at the Carrier Dome showed how much room for improvement there is.

SU got off to another slow start, but was able to turn it around with a strong second half to top Canisius 86-67.

There was a sense of déjà vu for the SU men’s basketball team Sunday afternoon in its home matchup with Canisius. Much like SU's opening night victory versus Northern Iowa, getting out of the starting blocks strong proved to be an issue once more in the Orange's 86-67 victory over the Golden Griffins.
