2014 NCAA WLAX Final Four: Syracuse Orange (20-2) vs. Virginia Cavaliers (12-8) GameThread

The Orange will play in their fifth Final Four in seven years.

The Syracuse Orange women's lacrosse team will look to return to the National Title game for the second time in three seasons when they take on the Virginia Cavaliers in the 2014 Final Four on Friday in Towson, MD.

Opening draw at Johnny Unitas Stadium is set for 5:00 p.m. ET. The game will be broadcast on ESPN3 as well as WJPZ 89.1FM. The game will also be televised on CuseTV for free.

Virginia leads the all-time series 11-5 but the Orange beat the Cavs 18-14 earlier this season.

The winner of this game will play the winner of the Maryland - Northwestern game in the National Championship on Sunday. Whoever wins that game, it will be the tenth-straight season one of those squads is in the finals.

Looking for some good reasons to pay attention to the game? Syracuse.com gives you seven, including the fact that SU has the chance to make some serious history.

A national championship would be the first by a women's program in Syracuse school history.

"I'd love to be part of a team that could bring home the first women's national championship to Syracuse," senior Alyssa Murray said. "That would really be something special. It's something we've thought about for quite some time now, how exciting it would be for our friends and family. ... When you're looking at big picture and talking about the whole big picture it is something very special because it's the women in sports kind of thing. It's an important topic and it's a big step for the university. We're very aware it would be a cool thing and a place in history."
