While the Syracuse Men’s Basketball team couldn't overcome Duke last night in the Sweet 16 round of the NCAA Tournament, today brought more joy for Orange fans. The No. 15 Syracuse Orange (4-3, 2-0) were able to overcome the No. 3 Duke Blue Devils (8-2, 0-1) in a 15-14 back-and-forth nail biter, snapping the Devils’ four game winning streak.

The Orange Men's Basketball team is done dancing after a tense matchup with No. 2 seed Duke, ending with a final score of 69 - 65. All hopes of an upset to parallel Syracuse’s 2016 run to the Final Four were dashed as the Blue Devils pulled ahead in the second half of Friday’s game.

  Both teams appeared evenly matched for the duration of the first half. No. 11 seed Syracuse made eight of their first 12 shots, getting out to a 17 - 14 lead early in the game.

It’s not often Syracuse men’s lacrosse (3-3, 1-0) finds itself with a .500 record, but that’s exactly where the Orange sits after Sunday’s 14-10 loss to #16 Rutgers (6-2, 0-0).

The Scarlet Knights’ decisive win started out a competitive game, and even looked to be in SU’s favor through much of the first quarter.

Syracuse held the ball long enough to active a shot clock warning on the opening possession before redshirt sophomore Stephen Rehfuss put in the game’s first goal.

The party is over. Now it’s time to dance.

Syracuse men’s basketball looks to make the most of its controversial NCAA tournament bid when the team takes on Arizona State Wednesday night.

Both teams are No. 11 seeds, having made the tournament as at-large bids. These spots are given to the strongest teams who did not earn a bid by either winning their conference during the regular season, or by winning their conference’s tournament at the end of the season.

Nate Solomon and Tyson Bomberry sat out of Syracuse's (3-2, 1-0) brutal 18-7 loss to Johns Hopkins (3-2, 0-0) and their absences were certainly felt. 

Coming off a road win against Virginia, Syracuse seemed to have put the crushing loss to Albany behind them. However, a lot of the same mistakes and issues cropped up again in this blowout to Johns Hopkins.

Cardiac 'Cuse is back. Sixth-ranked Syracuse (3-1, 1-0) won back-to-back games by a single goal and will look to take that momentum into a matchup with another lacrosse powerhouse in 16th-ranked Johns Hopkins (2-2, 0-0). 

The previous meeting between these two was a thriller in Baltimore a year ago. Brendan Bomberry scored in overtime to give Syracuse an 8-7 win. Nate Soloman scored two goals as well to aid the Orange, but will not be in action Saturday because of a suspension for his hit on a Virginia player.

With dwindling hopes of making it back to the NCAA tournament, Syracuse (19-12, 8-10) heads to Brooklyn for a first round ACC tournament match up with Wake Forest (11-19, 4-14) at the Barclays Center.

Syracuse joined the ACC back in 2013 when the Big East folded. Fast forward to 2018 and the Orange is set to play in its fourth ACC tournament (it sat out in 2015 because of a self-imposed ban). 'Cuse is still searching for its first ever win in the conference tournament.

Syracuse men's lacrosse (3-1, 1-0) turned smooth sailing into a wild ride in Sunday's 12-11 win over Virginia (4-1, 0-1). 

The Orange almost threw away a masterfully played three quarters, but freshman Tucker Dordevic was there to save the day in the game's closing seconds. A rightwards spin dodge followed by a right-handed fling gave Dordevic his fourth goal of the day and gave Syracuse the road victory.
