Tweet of the Week: UVA, Syracuse, and the Epic ACC

Virginia vs. Syracuse is always one of of the games I circle on the calendar every season. The teams are perennial powerhouses in lacrosse, and their matchup is always entertaining. This year the game has more meaning with Syracuse joining the ACC, making it the first conference game between the Cavaliers and the Orange. There’s no other way to describe this one besides epic.

Of course the big news last week was that Adrenaline and LXM PRO had reached an agreement with Major League Lacrosse.
