Syracuse 2007 Lacrosse Schedule Released

Mike Leveille and Company have their work cut out for them in 2007.
It appears as if Orange head lacrosse coach John Desko has taken a page out of fellow Syracuse alumnus Jim Boeheim's book on regular season scheduling.

As the Syracuse press release indicates, the Orange will play 13 lacrosse contests in 2007. Eight of those games will be played on the Carrier Dome carpet with another -- a March 10th contest against resurgent Georgetown -- possibly finding a home on The Hill.

In pertinent part, the press release provides as follows:
SYRACUSE, N.Y. * The Syracuse University men's lacrosse team will play 13 games in 2007, six of which will be against opponents who qualified for last year's NCAA Tournament. The upcoming slate is highlighted by a match with defending national champion Virginia on March 3 at M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore in the inaugural Face-Off Classic.

The Orange and Cavaliers is just one piece of the Face-Off Classic doubleheader. The other game pits Princeton against Johns Hopkins. The four lacrosse powers are the top four teams in Inside Lacrosse's 2007 preseason rankings with Virginia holding the top spot in the poll followed by Johns Hopkins, Syracuse and Princeton. The four schools have combined to win every national championship since 1991.

Ticket prices for the Face-Off Classic will be $10 for groups of 10 or more, $15 for lower level reserved seats and $25 for club level seats. Tickets for the event will go on sale in early December.

The Orange will play at least eight home games in 2007 and could have as many as nine (the location of the Georgetown game has not been determined).
And, of course, the 2007 Syracuse slate:

As the season draws closer, I'll probably take a closer look at the schedule. Until then, though, Syracuse clearly has a tough road to hoe if it hopes to get back to the Memorial Day promised land.
