All Orange student-athletes, coaches and staff will gather for the special evening on Monday, April 28 at the Goldstein Auditorium in the Schine Student Center on the Syracuse campus. The awards show will begin at 8 pm and will be televised by Time Warner Cable Sports Channel and streamed live on www.Cuse.com.
Syracuse's nearly successful rally did a little to change the narrative of the afternoon, but there's little doubt what the biggest question about the Orange will be in the next few weeks.
It can be safely said that both Syracuse men's basketball and lacrosse were not the same after their first regular season match up with Duke in 2014. Unlike the basketball team, the lacrosse team may just have a chance to take their new identity in a positive direction.
ESPN.com writer Eamonn Brennan and CBSsports.com columnist Gary Parrish both came out with their own extremely premature Top 25 rankings for the 2014-15 season on Monday.
"Syracuse is definitely still on his list," Hasson said.
The potential for early playing time is certainly there, and there may be no bigger selling point with Conway.
Watson powered Syracuse to a 4-2 record last week, including two critical wins against Virginia Tech, the number two team in the ACC at the time. For the six games, Watson led the Orange in batting (.467), hits (7), home runs (4), runs batted in (11), on-base percentage (.579) and slugging percentage (1.333).
The average announced attendance for the two tournament days was 4,344 at PPL Park, and the venue which is the perfect fit from a logistical standpoint, if not geographical (abandoned industrial neighborhoods on three sides and the Delaware River on the other), will again play host to the ACC tournament in 2015, although the No. 5 vs. No. 6 "Showcase" game will likely be moved to the University of Pennsylvania campus.
I never viewed myself a Syracuse fan, but it was sad to see that team’s run — and, more selfishly, my own run — end in Buffalo. It was like the end of a good book that you never want to stop reading.
Even when the facilities are constructed, some programs will remain unimproved.
