Sorry, Towson

The Syracuse Women's Lacrosse team will host a playoff game for the first time in their history as the No. 5 seed in the 2008 NCAA Tournament. They'll host Towson (13-5) on Sunday, May 11 at 3:30 p.m. in the Carrier Dome (the men play that evening). It's the seventh appearance in the tournament for the Orange.

The Tigers and Orange met earlier this year and the Orange dispatched them in impressive fashion, 22-5. Towson earned an automatic bid by winning the Colonial Athletic Association.

If they win, the Orange will most likely have played their final home game of the season and will travel to #4 Virginia, although if the Cavaliers are upset by North Carolina, the Orange would host that match-up. A win in either case would send them to the final four where the odds are good they would get another crack at the mighty Northwestern Wildcats, #1 yet again. Check out the full bracket here.

If you're a Syracuse lacrosse fan, hope you didn't have plans on Sunday. You do now.
