Syracuse University lacrosse close defender Brian Megill has done it all for the Orange this season. The junior team captain caused three turnovers during Saturday’s 10-8 loss to Georgetown to set a season school record in that category (32), surpassing the 31 Joel White accumulated last season.
King highlighted SU at second place. Despite winning the Big East tournament the previous two seasons, the Orange was voted to finish one spot behind DePaul in the conference’s preseason coaches’ poll.
With the most recent APR scores — for the academic year 2010-11 — set to be released in late May or early June, it’s only a matter of time before the next basketball Goliath meets the same fate. In 2014-15, teams must have a four-year average of 930 or at least a 940 average for the two most recent years. In 2015-16 and beyond, teams must have a four-year average of 930 to be eligible for the postseason.
"To me, I don't care. I just want to play football again. I left school thinking I could go as late as the third round. The opportunity to play professional football is great. I just want to go play football; my goal is to be an impact player as a rookie."
The gala awards show, patterned after ESPN’s ESPY Awards, will be held on Tuesday, May 1 on the SU campus. Some 600 student-athletes will attend the event, along with coaches, staff and University administrators. Although it is not open to the public, the show will be televised live on Time Warner Cable Sports and streamed on Orange All Access.
