NCAA Lacrosse Tournament Infographs: #3 Duke vs. Syracuse

Alrighty, it's time to break out the infographs for the 2012 NCAA Lacrosse Tournament! Men's D-1, sorry everyone looking for Gary Gait's battle plan to destroy everything in sight for the Women's tournament or breaking down Cortland-Salisbury in every way possible. If you loved the conference tournament matchup infographs, you'll love these new features!

  • More colorful!
  • Breaks down how each team earned their way to the NCAA Tournament!
  • Includes furry, loveable, and adorable NCAA mascots! Well, at least for the First Round
  • Comes with a Dropkick Murphys song in every post because the Final Four's in Massachusetts and thus every song needs to be Dropkick Murphys!

Dropkick Murphys Song of the Matchup: "The Burden" because... yeah... Syracuse is somehow in this tournament and Duke always seems to bounce back from bad outings in a huge way.

We begin with a future ACC rivalry and a rematch from last month involving two of the past three NCAA Champions: Duke and Syracuse. This is about as high profile as you can get for a matchup, people, and that's why it's on ESPN instead of the U. This is also a very intriguing game, as Syracuse seemed to get its act together in the Big East Tournament while Duke can either look very good or look very sloppy depending on how they show up each game. Either way, this should be a fun one. Here's a look at how they match up.


Stick to College Crosse the next two days as we break down all the First Round matchups. Also be on the lookout late Friday night for the lacrosse infographic to end all lacrosse infographics... or at least hopefully it will be.
