After each year of NCAA Lacrosse rolls to a stop, we go through and find all the D1 players we can, who use traditionally strung lacrosse sticks. It can be a regular six or eight diamond pocket, a pita pocket, or something crazier… as long as it uses leather and string, it’s eligible!

We took all of the first round teams of the 2014 NCAA Lacrosse Tournament and broke down each roster and divided the players by state and province. Since all of the rosters had to be checked by hand, we can promise that a ton of effort was put forth, but our numbers could be slightly off (nobody’s perfect)!
Conference newcomers Notre Dame (7-5) and Syracuse (10-3) survived semifinal matchups decided in the final seconds Friday night at PPL Park in Chester and will play for the ACC title at 1 p.m. Sunday.
We’re moving along with the NCAA Division I men’s lacrosse rivalries, highlighting the historic matchup between the Syracuse Orange and the Virginia Cavaliers.
Welcome to another superb Throwback Thursday! This week we’ve got some NCAA D1 semifinal action from 1990! It was UNC taking on Syracuse, and while Cuse had the big guns and names (Maracheck, Paul and Gary Gait, Pat McCabe, Matt Palumb), UNC wasn’t going down without a fight!
Both Syracuse and St. John’s entered the game in Kennesaw, GA with a 2-2 record, but Cuse got above .500 with the 14-8 win in front of more than 5,500 fans, many of them local. Clearly the chance to see top quality D1 lacrosse was enough to draw out the growing Georgia lacrosse community. Photos, GIF, video, and recap!
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.
Syracuse (16-4 in 2013) is coming off of a season that was a whole lot of “Friday Night Lights” (the television show), unfortunately mixed with a little bit of “Friday Night Lights” (the movie): five one-goal wins (including games against Virginia, Princeton and Cornell) in the regular season, late-game NCAA tourney heroics against Yale and Denver, and ultimately, a heartbreaking loss to Duke in the championship game.
Syracuse took down visiting Siena last night in the opener for both teams. If you have Time Warner Cable, you may have caught the game on TV. If you have Cablevision, or live outside of the Northeast, you probably didn’t see the game. Thankfully Cuse has highlights up already!
StylinStrings made the trek up to Syracuse, NY for the first ever Wooden Stick Expo. The SS guys put together a fantastic video showcasing some of the top notch stuff going down. Looks like it was one heck of an experience!
Lyle Thompson scores a highlight reel backhand goal for the Iroquois Nationals against Syracuse’s men’s lacrosse team in fall ball scrimmage action in Cortland, NY. The game was broadcast on Access Lacrosse.
Syracuse took on the Iroquois Nationals this weekend in Cortland, NY, and won the unofficial game 14-11. Hakeem Lecky had five goals, and both teams showed moments of true excellence. It was a great showcase of high scoring, fun lacrosse, and the fans in attendance were treated to a great game.
Did you miss The Medicine Game on TV this week? Maybe it wasn’t showing in your neck of the woods, or you couldn’t find it, or you just missed it, and now you’re kicking yourself… well, stop it, because now you can watch the FULL feature film online thanks to PBS!
With everyone beginning preparations for the 2014 FIL World Championships in Denver, it was only a matter of time before we would get to see some of the international friendlies that would be played to help teams prepare.
