Syracuse Ballers Try Lacrosse For First Time


Do the names Michael Carter-Williams and C.J. Fair ring a bell? If you’re a Cuse fan, they should. Michael and C.J. are two of Syracuse’s finest on the basketball court, and recently they joined Donna Ditota from to give the sport of lacrosse a try…

It is in this website’s opinion that before Mike or C.J. decide to try out for the team, they need a few more lessons from Syracuse lacrosse legend Mike Powell first… maybe he’ll stop by to give them some pointers?

What do you think?
