It’s been 726 days since Syracuse played Boston College in the 2021 national championship game. In those two years, a lot has changed in the Orange program, but head coach Kayla Treanor says SU is back where it's been striving to get to.

“We’re super excited moving on to a Final Four, which is a destination we wanted to be all year,” Treanor said after the SU’s 13-7 win over JMU last Thursday.

After defeating Johns Hopkins and James Madison, the Orange face the Eagles, the team that ended Syracuse’s 15-0 start to the season. BC has defeated Penn and Notre Dame en route to its sixth straight final four dating back to 2017. Plus, the Eagles have defeated the Orange the last three times they’ve matched up. Going into the semifinal game, Treanor says that Syracuse’s depth on offense will be key.

“It’s an incredible offense,” Treanor said. “Any given day, anybody can step up. You can’t run defensive game plans to stop one or two or three players. It’s such a dynamic offense with seven people out there that can truly score and take over.”

Syracuse, with the third-ranked scoring offense in the country this season, takes on Boston College this evening at 5:30 in Cary, North Carolina. We’ll have coverage on our social media pages on Twitter, @WAERSports and Instagram, @waer883.
