Syracuse will be ...... cooking with gas this year: Griffin Cook grabs opening at attack for Syracuse lacrosse.

The sophomore turned in another dominant effort in preseason on Sunday, combining for five goals in two scrimmages against Hofstra and Vermont at the Ensley Athletic Center.

#AnotherOne: National Lacrosse League continues sponsorship streak with AT&T deal.

The pact with AT&T will give the company the rights to the NLL MVP Award. The deal comes only weeks after the league struck a gambling partnership with MGM Resorts International and GVC Holdings. Other deals include a renewed agreement with Team 22, the manufacturer of sporting apparel company Under Armour.

Games begin in less than a week. Let’s gooo!

Well that’s terrifying: Analyst claims China’s coronavirus victims “probably 10 times” higher than reported.
