Syracuse lacrosse closed out its fall practice season by winning the Alumni Classic.

The Orange are schedule to play Georgetown in the Konica Minolta Faceoff Classic.

Later on in the season they'll play Duke in the Konica Minolta Big City Classic.

If lacrosse is being played and you refer the event as a Classic, Syracuse will be there. Case in point...The ESPNU Warrior Classic, in which Syracuse will face Rutgers on April 23rd.

The Orange will face Big East rival Rutgers at 6:30 p.m. April 23 at Rentschler Field, home of the University of Connecticut football team. Massachusetts and Hofstra will meet in the opener at 4. SU apparently is giving up a home game to take part in the event, as it faced Rutgers on the road last season.

Considering UConn doesn't play Division 1 lacrosse the choice of field is...curious. I suppose it has something to do with ESPN being situated nearby. Regardless, we're going to play Rutgers regardless, we might as well make it sound fancy.
