SU fired 55 shots, improving to 2-0 on the season in a 12-7 victory over Army.

The No. 1 ranked Syracuse men’s lacrosse team finally figured out Army’s goalie in the second half of Sunday’s game to beat the Black Knights 12-7.

Allowing just 16 goals in their first two games, Army focused on shutting down Syracuse’s offensive stars Cody Jamieson and Stephen Keogh.

For three quarters, the Black Knights (1-3) did just that. Relying heavily on junior goaltender Tom Palesky, who made 21 saves on the afternoon, Army’s defense kept it close -- especially in the first quarter when the Black Knights barely controlled the ball.

Top-ranked Connecticut sidestepped the best punch Syracuse could throw, defeating the Orange 87-66 behind 38 points and a career-high 20 rebounds from Connecticut forward Maya Moore.

Connecticut junior forward Maya Moore continued her climb toward greatness by scoring 38 points (on 12-for-19 shooting) to go with a career-high 20 rebounds on Feb. 24's matchup against the Syracuse Orange.

“It was just a phenomenal night for her-- she’s unique,” said Connecticut head coach Geno Auriemma after the game.

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.

Offensive woes give Syracuse its second loss of the season in a 66-60 Valentine's Day defeat by Louisville.

For the second straight game, the Orange took an early double-digit lead, then squandered it in the final minutes. This time, they couldn’t recover.

“You can’t be in all these games and get down to the end and think you’re going to win,” SU head coach Jim Boeheim said. “You’ve got to play better during the game and tonight offensively we just were not good. And I think that’s the bottom line.”

In their final tune-up game before the season opener, the Orange men’s lacrosse team shut down a solid Maryland squad 10-7.

Syracuse’s defensive unit performed admirably in the first half, limiting Maryland’s high-octane offense to just seven shots. Junior goalkeeper John Galloway was solid, allowing only one goal in the half. Junior defender John Lade provided excellent leadership, picking off several passes during key Terrapin possessions and quickly sending the ball back to the offensive side.

After giving up a 16-point second half lead, the Orange buckled down to hang onto its lead and end with a victory against arch-rival UConn.

With the No. 2 national ranking on the line and the extra anticipation of its first meeting with Connecticut since last year's historic six overtime game at Madison Square Garden, Syracuse found a way to fend off its Big East rival yet again in Wednesday's 72-67 nail-biter win at the Carrier Dome.

Rick Jackson led Syracuse with 15 points, while Kris Joseph and Wes Johnson had 14 and 13 respectively. Joseph and Johnson combined to make six straight free throws in the final 33 seconds to help seal the win for the Orange.

The Orange begin their hunt for a third national championship in a row with two exhibition games against LeMoyne College and Hofstra University Sunday at the Dome.

Despite losing senior leaders Kenny Nims, Dan Hardy, and Matt Abbott, the Orange begin the 2010 season with very high expectations. Syracuse is the pre-season No. 1 ranked team in the nation and the consensus pick to win this year’s NCAA tournament. The Orange edged out Duke to claim the top spot in both the United States Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association (USILA) preseason coaches poll and the NIKE/Inside Lacrosse preseason media rankings.

After a sloppy first half, the Orange battled back to take down the Marquette Golden Eagles on Saturday at the Carrier Dome.

Kris Joseph and Arinze Onuaku lead No. 3 Syracuse to a 22-1 record and the team's best start ever with an 85-68 win over Providence.

Prized Syracuse forward Wesley Johnson went down hard to the floor eight minutes into the first half, but the story of the night was reserved for the flight of a sophomore standout and senior staple. 

Kris Joseph scored a career-high 23 points and Arinze Onuaku added a season-best 20 as the Orange squashed the Providence Friars 85-68 to improve to a school-best 22-1 record.  

“A.O. was the most active he’s been all year,” SU Coach Jim Boeheim said. “He hasn’t been having the kind of year we need from him."

Syracuse continues its 7-game winning streak against rival Georgetown in a boisterous Dome.

Big heads, big names, big blocks and big noise filled the Carrier Dome Monday night.

Unofficial technology (i.e. iPhone applications) measured the crowd volume at 105 decibels on press row, somewhere in the neighborhood of the levels recorded in the Louisiana Superdome for the NFC Championship between the NFL’s Minnesota Vikings and New Orleans Saints on Sunday.

Loud and proud, that’s the Syracuse Orange fan right now.
