Jojo puts the ball in the cage. Fact!
We here at Orange::44 love covering the major sports. But as I've been out of the home office for the past couple weeks, and John also joined the masses in DC last weekend, we haven't had the opportunity to get to covering the early portion of Syracuse's 2011 lacrosse campaign. That that get's remedied this coming week.
And no better way to get back into it than #2/1 Virginia v. #1/2 Syracuse in the Carrier Dome this Friday night at 6:00pm on ESPN U. If there was ever one lacrosse game to go to at Syracuse University... yeah this is that game. Consider the fact that for the seniors on Syracuse's lacrosse team they are 46-3 versus teams not named Virginia, and 1-3 versus teams that are. This is a huge game, not only for ranking implications, but also for postseason implications and seeding as well. JoJo Marasco is playing well at attack, along with Tim Desko. Joel White is grabbing ground balls like it's his job. And John Galloway is stoning people at the doorstep. And another high powered offense will be in town with the Bratton brothers of Virginia. Two offenses that pass crisply and can split dodge and run off screens. SU has the edge in defense. But if Virginia can slow down the Syracuse attack and maintain time of possession this is anyone's game. Tune in. We'll have full post game coverage next week, right before the Big East Tournament starts in NYC. Full coverage of this game, the BET bracket, and the final SU home game of the season. All that and more next week. DePaul / Syracuse preview to come soon.
