Syracuse used a big second half to run away from upset-minded Northern Iowa in its season opener Friday night.

The Orange were led by Kris Joseph and Rick Jackson who each chipped in 14 points. Freshman Dion Waiters also scored in double figures for Syracuse as he chipped in 10 ­– seven of which came in the first half.

After a sun-soaked first day of school warmed nervous freshman and relaxed upperclassmen alike, the countdown to May is officially on.

When freshman Justin Hoffman showed up to his calculus class Monday morning, the Carnegie classroom location he scribbled down was completely empty. In fact, it wasn’t a classroom at all –- just some kind of office.

Unfortunately for many of the 3,450 freshmen starting their Syracuse University careers Monday, Hoffman's not alone.

Obviously confused first-years gripped their printed MySlice schedules and campus maps, wandering the paths and searching for building names such as Hinds and Heroy halls.

Syracuse loses 9-8 to Army in the opening round of the NCAA lacrosse playoffs Sunday in a dramatic double overtime.

They were a team on a mission. After winning back-to-back national titles, the Orange looked forward to their third in as many years. Syracuse lost to Army just once in fifteen games since 1984. As the second ranked team in the country, the Orange (13-1, 5-0) looked to have every advantage over the visiting fourteenth-ranked Black Knights.

And the Central New Yorkers prevailed in the end – but not those dressed in orange and white. Army upset Syracuse 9-8, just five seconds before the second overtime period expired.
