High hopes: Is it okay for Syracuse lacrosse fans to have expectations again?

Of course, the Syracuse Orange men’s and women’s basketball teams are still playing games right now, but that doesn’t stop us from glancing at the next sports on the horizon. As is always the case, Syracuse’s men’s and women’s lacrosse teams are back in action very soon. And with their respective seasons about to start, the expectations are high.

“I’m just gonna be me,” How Penn State men’s lacrosse’s Nick Cardile plans to step up and lead.

Tambroni has seen Cardile take on his role as a leader through the fall and now into the spring season. In that time, he hasn’t seen the senior make many changes. That, according to Tambroni, is a good thing.

The Testudo Times with a nice preview of Maryland.

After suffering a heartbreaking loss at the hands of Virginia in the NCAA Tournament Quarterfinals, Maryland men’s lacrosse is gearing up for action with the 2020 season starting Saturday against High Point.

Coach Desko previews the Syracuse vs. Yale scrimmage this weekend.

Myers & Myers would be a great law firm name: Respect not rivalry for lacrosse-coaching Myers brothers.

With parents, family and friends looking on Nick Myers and younger brother Pat finally competed against each other. Yet no one was keeping score. Nick Myers Ohio State lacrosse team was scrimmaging Pat’s Lafayette Leopard squad in a friendly if you will at the Woody Hayes Athletic Center.

Men’s lacrosse season preview: A Gray area in Boston by Marisa Ingemi.

It’s a different shade of Gray at Nickerson Field this season. The Terriers lost a player who may have been the best ever to don the scarlet and white when Chris Gray transferred to North Carolina, but that’s just one new element of the team on Comm. Ave this season.

I am sure Yale won’t use this as motivation.

UNC men’s lacrosse will mix fresh faces, experienced vets in 2020 campaign.

After a couple of lackluster seasons, the North Carolina men’s lacrosse team will certainly be looking to end its NCAA Tournament drought in the 2020 season. Head coach Joe Breschi and his squad have missed the last two tournaments, the first misses in his 11-year tenure as UNC’s head coach.

Towson’s Koby Smith is going to be a problem this year.

Coker university mourns the death of lacrosse player Garrett Bakhsh.

The Coker University community is mourning the loss of one of its students, who died days after a deadly shooting at a Hartsville nightclub.

Garret Bakhsh, an 18-year-old Coker student from Baltimore County, Maryland, died at 8 p.m. Tuesday from injuries he sustained in the shooting at Mac’s Lounge on Camden Avenue early Sunday morning, according to the Darlington County Coroner’s Office.

From Anonymous Eagle: Marquette me’s lacrosse to face an Inside Lacrosse Media Poll gauntlet in 2020.

Inside Lacrosse published the results of their NCAA men’s lacrosse 2020 preseason poll on Wednesday, and Marquette did not receive a single vote. That’s not a surprise. The Golden Eagles finished last year under .500 and lost a whole mess of players on both offense and defense.

The Daily Targum with a nice preview of Rutgers’ 2020 season.

It’s been 15 years since the Rutgers lacrosse team earned a bid in the NCAA Tournament.

It hasn’t been for a lack of trying, though. Since head coach Brian Brecht took over for Jim Stagnitta in 2012, the Scarlet Knights have had considerable success. In 2017, they were even able to reach a No. 1 national ranking before they lost 4 of their last 6 games and missed the Big Ten Tournament.

Jacksonville can’t wait to get the season started.

This is probably going to be the best commercial during the Super Bowl: A dog owner is using a Super Bowl ad to thank the vet school that saved his pet’s life.

The ad follows Scout’s journey as a cancer survivor and celebrates the work being done at the University of Wisconsin School of Veterinary Medicine.
