Syracuse Crushed at Home by Johns Hopkins

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.

Syracuse Lacrosse Clashes with 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.

Syracuse Falls to UNC; Has to Await Its Tourney Fate

In a day full of upsets in the ACC tournament, the Orange were unable to get one of its own. Syracuse (20-13, 8-10) fell to #12 North Carolina (20-7, 12-7) 78-59 at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn. The 'Cuse was the only ACC lower seed that did not win its matchup today.

The Orange had a chance to likely secure its spot in the NCAA tournament, but failed to do so against Roy Williams and the Tar Heels.

The Syracuse Orange (20-12, 8-10) will face the University of North Carolina Tar Heels (22-9, 11-7) for the second time this season when they face off at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, NY. Tonight's game marks the second round of play in the ACC Tournament. Syracuse is ranked eleventh in the tournament, while UNC is ranked sixth.

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.

The flickering light that is the NCAA tournament hopes of the Orange is not out just yet.

Syracuse (19-12, 8-10) held on to defeat #18 Clemson (22-8, 11-7) by a final score of 55-52. In front of the largest crowd in college basketball this season (28,670), the Cardiac 'Cuse nabbed its first win over a ranked team in dramatic fashion.

Points were not at a premium in Syracuse's (18-12, 7-10) 85-70 road loss to Boston College (17-13, 7-10). The Orange allowed the second most points it has all season, thanks in large part to a great night shooting three-pointers from the Eagles. 

It was yet another ineffective night of scoring for Jim Boeheim's group. The team shot just 38 percent from the floor. On the other hand, BC hit on a whopping 52 percent of its long range attempts to keep the Orange at an arm's length the whole contest.

Syracuse Travels to Boston for ACC Matchup

Following a woeful offensive performance in Durham, Syracuse (18-11, 7-9) heads to Boston College (16-13, 6-10) in a game that will determine seeding in the ACC tournament. A loss would drop the Orange firmly behind Notre Dame and bring them level in conference play with the Eagles.

While Syracuse is concerned with its NCAA Tournament prospects, it cannot afford to look past Boston College. The Orange coasted to an 81-63 victory in the Carrier Dome earlier this season, but the last time the two faced off in Boston, the Eagles dropped 96 points en route to a 15-point victory.

Just three days after falling to No. 10 UNC in the Carrier Dome, Syracuse (18-11, 7-9) lost their second in a row in a vicious back-to-back. The No. 5 Duke Blue Devils (24-5, 12-4) took care of the Orange 60-44 in Cameron Indoor Stadium on Saturday for their fifth straight win.
