The Syracuse Orange lacrosse team came out of the game last week and put to rest initial concerns about their unknown elements. They'll have to keep it up and improve even further Sunday when the Army Black Knights visit the Dome.
The Knights might not be Johns Hopkins or Virginia but it's worth noting that no one has beaten us more in NCAA history than Army:
The answer is Army, which owns 39 victories over the Orange entering today’s 2 p.m. contest in the Carrier Dome. SU is 500 games over .500 (822-312-16) overall but 19 games under (20-39) vs. the Black Knights.
And while it is true that Syracuse is 9-2 against Army since the teams began playing annually in the Carrier Dome in 2002, one of the two losses was among the most disappointing of the decade – a 9-8 double-overtime upset in the opening round of the 2010 NCAA Tournament.
We might have avenged that loss last year but I feel like it needs a little more avenging. It was a crappy loss.
College Crosse has more info on this and every game going on Sunday.
