Dag Bag — A look at the 2012-13 Syracuse basketball team | The Juice Online
So, who will be left from this year’s squad? I’m looking at you Brandon Triche. Triche will be one of two seniors on the team next year, with James Southerland being the other. While Southerland’s role should be increased next year (new 6th man?), Triche will be looked at as the one to take over the reins for Scoop and Kris. Triche was the 3rd leading scorer for the Orange this season (9.4 PPG), behind Joseph and Waiters. Never known as a true leader, Triche will have to become that, stepping up his stats and becoming more of a vocal leader.

Q&A with CBS Sports Network's Steve Panarelli -
I think people need to stop being so surprised when teams lose games. I think the parity in college lacrosse is getting so much better every year. Villanova’s a good team. They’ve got a lot of players and they’ve done a good job of turning that program around, and to say that I’m stunned or shocked, I’m not. I’m not shocked at anything in lacrosse anymore. To say that 10 years ago would have been unheard of, but I think nowadays, the game has evolved so much, the coaching has gotten so much better, and there are so many more kids playing at the youth and high school level, smaller programs like Villanova, Lehigh and Bucknell can go and if they do a good job of recruiting and find these diamonds in the rough, they can compete with the Syracuses and the Hopkins, the top-tier programs. If you don’t show up to play on Saturdays, you’re going to lose.
