After losing to Duke in the 2013 division 1 men's lacrosse championship, Syracuse has the makings of team ready for another title run, with depth on offense and defense.

A loss in the national title game isn’t something you ever forget, ever truly get over, especially not when a 6-1 lead against Duke evaporates, as face-off after face-off went the other way, the Orange’s offense forced to simply watch their season slip away.

Nearly eight months later, and the end seems like almost yesterday.

SU capitalized on its few offensive possessions to roll past tournament newcomer Bryant at the Carrier Dome.

Hobart attackman Alex Love and goalkeeper Peter Zonino snap No. 5 Syracuse's four-game win streak.

Alex Love was directly responsible for more than 50 percent of Hobart’s goals Tuesday night against the Syracuse men’s lacrosse team.

Following in the footsteps of brother, father and three uncles, redshirt freshman attackman Dylan Donahue has helped the No. 8 Orange to a 6-2 start.

Dylan Donahue doesn’t remember when he became a Syracuse lacrosse fan. All he knows is an orange shirt from his childhood.

He doesn’t remember what it read, its logo, or any designs, only that it was orange. He remembers he was “six or seven” years old, running around his parent’s house in Syracuse with it and a miniature lacrosse stick.

But he does remember what the shirt means.
