Syracuse men’s lacrosse will open up NCAA Tournament against Georgetown

The Syracuse men’s lacrosse team will open its NCAA Tournament against fifth-seeded Georgetown 7:30 p.m. Saturday.

The Hoyas, champion of the Big East, come in at 12-2 while unseeded SU is 7-5. The winner of that contest advances to a quarterfinal game against the winner of the No. 4 Virginia-Bryant opening-round matchup.

Syracuse enters the tournament coming off Friday’s win over Robert Morris. The Orange will be looking to the tournament to atone for a disappointing regular season that followed a 2020 slate in which the team was 5-0 and ranked No. 1 when the rest of the schedule was canceled by Covid.

Syracuse has won 11 NCAA titles, with the last coming in 2009. The Orange hasn’t reached a final four since 2013.

Orange coach John Desko is 34-14 in the NCAA Tournament, a victory total that’s tied for third all-time. His .708 tournament winning percentage is second among active Division I coaches.

The final four will be held May 29-31, 2021 at Rentschler Field in East Hartford, Conn.
