Both the Syracuse Orange men's and women's lacrosse teams kick off Big East Tournament play today. When they do, they'll be lugging a few more plaques and trophies around with them.

Five Syracuse University men’s lacrosse players received all-Big East honors Wednesday for their work in the 2012 season.

Junior defenseman Brian Megill and senior midfielder Kevin Drew were selected to the All-BIG EAST First Team, while senior attackman Tommy Palasek, senior midfielder Bobby Eilers and junior midfielder JoJo Marasco were named to the All-BIG EAST Second Team.

Megill was a unanimous selection to the All-Big East First Team.

Meanwhile, Michelle Tumolo took him the coveted Big East Women’s Lacrosse Attack Player of the Year Award. Deservedly so since she leads the Orange in assists (39) and became only the second player in school history to record 200 points and 100 assists in her career.

Many other players on the team took home honors as well:

Tumolo, junior Becca Block and sophomore Alyssa Murray were unanimous selections to the All-BIG EAST First Team. Sophomore Katie Webster was also named to the all-conference first team for the second consecutive year. Five members of the Orange were chosen to the All-BIG EAST Second Team, including seniors Sarah Holden and Janelle Stegeland, junior Linley Block, sophomore Alyssa Costantino and freshman Kailah Kempney. The nine all-conference members were the most for any school.

Gary Gait also took home the Coach of the Year Award for leading his team to a 15-2 record and 8-0 conference record. It's the second-straight year he's won the award.

Both teams are in action this evening with the men taking on Villanova at 7 p.m. and the women hosting Georgetown at approximately 8:15 p.m. College Crosse has all the deets, profiles and info you need to get ready.
