The Syracuse Orange is coming off of a thrilling 10-9 win over the Albany Great Danes in which we saw a Nick Mariano last second game winner. SU fought back from an early deficit to get themselves back into a winning position. Meanwhile, the Army Black Knights are 2-1 with a 20-5 win over VMI this past Monday. Check out the game preview here.

NEWS & NOTES

Here’s a profile on Nick DiPietro which talks about his increased role on the defense. By the way, I want any defenseman coached by Brian Spallina, a very nice guy and one of the most aggressive defenseman to ever play in the MLL. So much fun to watch.

The Daily Orange previewed the Army-Cuse game.

Here is an article from the DO on Evan Molloy’s vocal presence and leadership and how it has affected a Nick Mellen-less SU defense.

I don’t really follow women’s lacrosse, but I found this to be a really interesting issue coming out of the women’s game. Take a read, it definitely shows the intelligence and ingenuity of Gary Gait.

Real recognize real...
