Does the NCAA tournament encourage teams to be conservative? -
A review of the last 13 national champions shows that only one matched or exceeded its season average in scoring with its final performance in the national title game. That was the 2007 Johns Hopkins squad, which averaged 10.4 goals and scored 12 in a one-goal decision over Duke. Several teams were close. Syracuse in 2008 averaged 13.4 goals and defeated Johns Hopkins, 13-10, in the tournament final. Virginia in 2006 averaged 15.8 goals and walloped Massachusetts, 15-7. The Orange in 2004 averaged 14.4 goals and edged Navy, 14-13.

The redshirt freshman who sat out last season with a wrist injury has scored six goals and tallied one assist in 16 games this season. But he has found the net when it’s mattered most, scoring three goals in the two games the Orange played in the Big East tournament. Syracuse will take on Duke at noon Saturday in the first round of the NCAAs. The game will be televised nationally on ESPN.
