The Orange's offensive onslaught buried Providence.

After losing to Johns Hopkins, the Orange (4-2) came out strong Thursday against Providence (1-4) in a 10-6 victory. The Friars weren't really expected to put up much of a fight. Their only win this season came against Wagner. So this was just the game the Orange needed to get back on track heading into a matchup with No. 14 Villanova on Sunday.

What to watch for as the Big East gets set for tip-off at its end-of-the-year tournament at Madison Square Garden.

The Favorite - Syracuse

No one in the Big East combines raw ability with length and athleticism like the Orange do.

The Dark horse - Cincinnati

The Bearcats have the guards to make a run and create mismatches with their small lineup.

Knocked out early - Notre Dame

Had a big win over SU, but ND relies too much on the long ball. If they're not falling the Irish will have a short stay in New York City.

The Syracuse women's basketball team shots just kept falling and falling, en route to an 80-54 point victory over Providence on Tuesday night at Alumni Hall. Star player Iasia Hemingway lead the SU (14-9, 3-6) team with 24 points in 33 minutes of play.

For the second straight year the Orange basketball team has started its season with sixteen straight victories.

Six SU players scored in double-figures as the No. 1 Syracuse (16-0, 3-0) pulled away in the second half to defeat Providence (11-5, 0-3) by a score of 87-73 Wednesday night at the Dunkin’ Donuts Center.  It was the seventh straight game the Orange won by a double-digit margin, also marking SU’s sixteenth straight victory and third straight against Big East opponents.

Syracuse softball had its home opener during the first warm spell of the spring, but Notre Dame spoiled the party handing the Orange back-to-back defeats Sunday.

Syracuse’s home opener was delayed a day due to travel problems by visiting Notre Dame. Following back-to-back losses at the hands of the Irish, the Orange are probably wishing it had been delayed a little longer.

On what started out as a gorgeous day Syracuse, the weather turned, becoming as bad as the play of the Orange. The two losses extended SU’s (24-10, 3-5) Big East losing streak to five games, while Notre Dame remained undefeated in conference play.

Iasia Hemingway and Kayla Alexander lead Orange past Friars as team finishes season with 17-2 home record.

In the last four seasons, the Syracuse women’s basketball team has posted three 20-win seasons and four consecutive winning seasons. During this time, the women’s team has transformed from an often dreadful team to a consistent postseason contender.

Orange players, fans are frustrated in 14-5 victory as the winless Friars try to kill as much clock possible.

Providence College visited the Orange for Senior Day on Saturday afternoon at the Carrier Dome. The Friars brought a 15-game losing streak that dates back to April 15, 2009 to challenge the nation’s top-ranked team.

Providence’s game plan became obvious to everybody present by the middle of the first quarter: just don’t get blown out. Despite Providence’s best efforts, Syracuse got its offense on track to beat the Friars 14-5.

With a number one ranking on the line, Syracuse gets its eighth straight win behind a career performance from Chris Daniello and a strong effort from a stingy defense.

After a thrilling last second win against CNY rival Cornell University on Tuesday night, the Syracuse Men’s Lacrosse Team (10-1, 3-0) looked to stay on track as they got into the meat of the Big East schedule against Rutgers University (5-6, 1-2) on Sunday night at Yurcak Field in Piscataway, N.J.

It was an offensive battle against the Friars on Tuesday night, but the Orange defense came out on top.

Led by Rick Jackson and Andy Rautins in a rallying, offensive shootout against Providence on Tuesday night, the No. 4 Syracuse Orange shut it down in a 99-85 win. Both players scored 28-points, a season-high for Rautins and a new career-high for Jackson.

The Orange recovered from an eight-point deficit to beat the feisty Friars and reach their highest point total in the Big East this season. The win also earned them a double-bye into the quarterfinals of the upcoming Big East tournament.
