A struggling offense and off-the-field distractions derailed a promising start to the 2014 season.

Syracuse head coach Phil Wheddon had one word to sum up the 2014 season.


Although the Orange strung together a decent start, it began to hit a lull during the middle of the campaign and struggled to capitalize on scoring chances, an issue that became even more prevalent against four ranked opponents at the end of the season. SU finished with an overall record of 5-10-4 and failed to qualify for the Atlantic Coast Conference and NCAA tournaments.
