With the 2017 NCAA Men's lacrosse tournament field announced, Syracuse now has its eye set on Yale in the first round of the tournament.
The Orange will host the Bulldogs in the Carrier Dome on Sunday, May 14. The two teams have not met since the 2013 national quarterfinals, with Syracuse winning 9-7. Evan Malloy, Sergio Salcido, Paolo Ciferri, Joe Gillis and Cal Paduda were true freshmen on that team.
Yale is the Ivy League champion, having outlasted the University of Pennsylvania in four overtimes and beating Brown to take the title.
