Though he is only a sophomore, SU's JoJo Marasco has shown that he is one of the top college lacrosse players in the country. As a tribute to his talent, he was allowed to wear the No. 22 this season – a hallowed number at Syracuse University.

CORRECTION: The NewsHouse incorrectly stated that former Syracuse lacrosse player Mike Leveille was among players who wore No. 22. Leveille actually wore No. 19. We have removed that reference from the following article and apologize for the error.

The No. 22 has had a long-standing legacy throughout the history of the Syracuse University men’s lacrosse team. Every SU player who has worn the hallowed number has left a unique mark on the lacrosse program.

The No. 1 ranked Orange split a pair of exhibition games Saturday, losing to Hofstra 6-5 and beating Le Moyne 10-5.

The last time Syracuse played in the Carrier Dome, Army used physicality and double overtime to pull a stunning upset. After an all-to-long offseason, the Orange players were ready and eager to begin avenging the loss.

“It was nice to be back in here and wash away the bad memories,” SU goalie John Galloway said. “It’s out of the memory bank. Now it’s time to focus on 2011.”

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.

SU's lacrosse team handily beats Princeton 13-4 Saturday at the first-ever event at New Meadowlands Stadium.

Led by senior Cody Jamieson, who had four goals and one assist on the night, the Orange controlled the game and scored at will on Princeton. The Tigers played a cautious defensive game and it cost them, as shooting lanes opened up regularly and Syracuse was able to capitalize on nearly every opportunity.

Syracuse pulled out the overtime win in a hard fought contest between the two Central New York rivals despite a dominant performance from Hobart goalie Max Silberlicht.

The Central New York Lacrosse rivalry between the Syracuse Orange (5-1, Big East 1-0) and the Hobart Statesmen (2-4, 0-1 ECAC) continued Tuesday night when the Orange squeaked by with a 9-8 overtime win at a cold and wet McCooey Field in Geneva, N.Y.

A crowd of 2,000 came out in full force despite the conditions, peppering SU players with unmentionable chants about their mothers and sisters and even a reappearance of the dead fish toss onto the turf.

Syracuse won 15-9 against the University of Denver and legendary coach Bill Tierney, who debuted with the team after 22 seasons and six national championships at Princeton.

The action began right after the opening whistle in Syracuse's first game of the season, as the Orange set the tone early.

Senior midfielder and faceoff specialist Gavin Jenkinson won the game’s opening draw back to junior midfielder Jovan Miller, who burned into the Denver zone and blew a shot past goalie Peter Lowell. After another clean faceoff win by Jenkinson, sophomore midfielder Kevin Drew went solo down the right side of the field and beat Lowell with a hard shot to the left side for a quick 2-0 Syracuse lead.
