Mikey Powell, Syracuse Get Revenge on Princeton – 2002 National Championship

Turn the clock back 18 years to the day. It’s 2002 and we’re tuning in for the third-straight NCAA DI National Championship meeting between Syracuse and Princeton. The Orange took round one, followed by Prince evening the series in 2001. Mikey Powell is now in his sophomore season and on the verge of winning his first Tewaaraton Trophy.

What a time it was for lacrosse fans…

The victory would be Coach John Desko’s second at the helm of Syracuse, his first coming after the initial meeting with Princeton in 2000 and another instant classic between the rivals.

Mikey Powell‘s four goals in the finals would bring his tournament total to six goals and eight assists to help earn the Most Outstanding Player of the Tournament and Division I National Player of the Year. Nothing beats Memorial Day Weekend in the sport of lacrosse. 2002 is yet another reason this holiday is so great.
