Syracuse Daily Links - Breaking Down The Zone With Fancy Math

Breaking down No. 2 Syracuse's zone efficiency - Luke Winn - SI.com
Melo does not have the Orange's lowest DRating (that belongs to Waiters), but it's clear that Melo has the biggest impact. His engagement rate, or DPoss%, of 26.1 is the highest on the team, and the fact that he's able to maintain a strong DRating (86.5) while impacting so many plays is impressive. Syracuse's entire 2-3 seems to take its cues from Melo.

Pregame Party: Georgetown at Syracuse - Casual Hoya
Games at the Carrier Dome are the worst. The stadium has all the charm and geographic convenience of the trophy piece arena of a Central Asian dictatorship and, in a desperation for recognition that would be right at home in such an international scofflaw, is constantly setting dubious attendance records.

"If you're looking at talent, I think Kentucky has clearly six guys who are going to be first-round picks on their team. I don't know that Syracuse has six first-round draft picks, but they have really, really good talent and they have incredible length," said Donovan, who won national titles in 2006 and '07. "It would be a heck of a game."

Syracuse University lacrosse goalie missed Sunday's scrimmages with a hand injury | syracuse.com
The coach now must make a decision. Does he redshirt the rookie, a two-time U.S. Lacrosse All-American at Shenendehowa High and Inside Lacrosse’s No. 2 rated goalie last year, and hope Lerman and Lamolinara can get the job done? Or does he put in Wardwell on Sunday when Syracuse plays Maryland at noon in the Carrier Dome in its final preseason scrimmage and thus burn the redshirt?
