Before the Syracuse men's lacrosse team begin its quest for a run at the Final Four appearance, the Orange women will be, hopefully, in the process of advancing to their second straight Final Four, as they host Florida in the NCAA Tournament quarterfinals at the Carrier Dome (2 p.m. ET on Sun Sports or 89.1 FM).
No. 4-seeded SU (17-3) is in the middle of a 12-game winning streak, which includes a Big East Tournament crown and a NCAA first-round victory, 21-8, over Dartmouth.
Junior Alyssa Murray, the team leader with 100 points, helped lead the team to victory with a 10-point performance (five goals and five assists), while Kayla Treanor has a team-best 64 goals.
The Gators (18-2) will be looking to defeat the Orange for the second time this season. Earlier in the year, Florida downed Syracuse, 14-10, at Sun Life Stadium in Miami.
In last year's NCAA Tournament, if you recall, these two high-scoring programs met in semifinals where SU earned a double-OT victory, 14-13.
Unfortunately, this game can only be viewed on Sun Sports or online at Orange All-Access. You can catch the game on the radio at 89.1 FM.
