NCAA Final Four National Semifinal Game Thread

Cornell vs. Duke. Crap. Do we really need to root for one over the other?!?!

Mitchell Layton

Ahhhhhhhh. Memorial Day weekend and Syracuse lacrosse. Remember when they used to go together like turkey and Thanksgiving?; or fireworks and the Fourth of July?; or the Georgetown Hoyas and a first-round NCAA Tournament exit in March?

Well, no need to rehash old memories today, because beginning at 2:30 p.m. ET, when the Duke Blue Devils take on the Cornell Big Red at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia, the Syracuse Orange will get a chance to move one step closer of earning the program's 12th National Championship.

However, before that happens Orange fans need to pick a side: Would you rather root on CNY lacrosse and wish for a 2009 rematch with Cornell, which is seemingly smoking hot right now? Or, pull for Duke, which means you're pulling for Duke. Yuck.

No real win-win situation here, but we can all talk about Game 1 of the annual national semifinal doubleheader here.
