Many SU fans will blame the creation of the Big East for SU's position, but here is the way head coach John Desko sees it: The team replaced UMass (No. 28 RPI) and Colgate (No. 53) on its schedule this year with Villanova (No. 12) and Notre Dame (No. 15), so if anything the new conference helped the team's RPI this season.

Providence may be one of the worst teams in the nation. In terms of records they haven’t won a game since April of 2009 and are the only winless team in Division 1. We all expected then #1 Syracuse to blow by Providence in a game with top talent on one side, and an upstart program newly playing with house money. But this game was brutal to watch for a different reason.

Since the first Patriot League Goalkeeper of the Year award was first recognized in 2005, a Navy player has claimed the honor three times. Wickham joins two-time winner Matt Russell, who won the award in 2005 and 2006. A nominee for the Tewaaraton Trophy, RJ Wickham (Penn Yan) leads the Patriot League and ranks second in the nation in save percentage, stopping 61.5 percent of the shots he has faced. He also ranks in the top 10 nationally in goals-against average, allowing just 8.35 goals per outing.

Bill Henderson (Tully) was named a First-Team All-Patriot League selection for the second consecutive season. He is joined by his brother, Tim Henderson, and fellow Army teammate Jeremy Boltus (Baldwinsville) as First-Team honorees. Tim Henderson, a sophomore defensive midfield specialist, ranks second in the Patriot League and 10th in the nation with 2.00 caused turnovers per game. Boltus leads the Patriot League and ranks ninth in the nation with 4.15 points per contest. He has three game-winning goals this season, including two in Patriot League outings.

Ward Melville (N.Y.) suspended 15 players earlier this week, but that didn’t seem to affect it in Tuesday’s game with Smithtown West. The Patriots still did fine in the game, rolling to a 13-8 victory over visiting Smithtown West. Sophomore Brian Droesch got 12 saves in his first varsity game. There were other changes, like a midfielder starting for the first time and another midfielder who had yet to play on the first line.

Pro lacrosse players was a great experience. I came into the indoor league in its second year of existence and it was fun to be a part of something that had a bright future. I was fortunate to play in historic arena’s, such as the old Boston Garden, Nassau Coliseum and the Spectrum in Philly. It was also a thrill to play in front of some sold out arena’s, seventeen thousand fans cheering in an indoor building can be very loud and a tremendous rush.

Not only are the East-West football games about to become history, so too are the battles in sports such as lacrosse, basketball, baseball and softball.

It’s 3:30 p.m., and Kevin Donahue is already running late to practice. With a game against Rutgers only three days away, the assistant coach of the men’s lacrosse team should have already started strategizing with his fellow coaches. So far, he’s nowhere to be found. Finally, 15 minutes into practice, Donahue saunters down the stairs of Hookway Field and nonchalantly takes his place on the sidelines with a lacrosse stick in hand.

For the last 22 years, this has been Donahue’s life. Despite playing an integral role in nine of the program’s 11 championships, the assistant coach has never received a single paycheck from Syracuse University. None. He works for free.

Senior Chris Daniello scored a career-high six points and matched his career high with four goals, and the Syracuse lacrosse defense shut out Rutgers for the game's first 40 minutes, 42 seconds Sunday night in an 11-5 SU victory here at Yursak Field. Syracuse (10-1, 3-0 Big East), playing its third road night game in eight days, needed both elements desperately, as it was clearly off its game early. The first quarter - one in which SU had outscored its foes 37-12 in 10 previous games - ended 0-0. Thanks to the Orange defense, Rutgers (5-6, 1-2) could not take advantage.

The halftime message from John Desko was clear.

"It is a little bit of a head scratcher in many ways," said Stagnitta, the East Syracuse native and ninth-year head coach of the Rutgers lacrosse team. "I saw a stat today that kind of defines us. We’ve outshot our opponents by 125 shots. We’re very athletic. We’ve got some terrific kids in the middle of the field who can create and play with anybody."

The likely loss of Syracuse lacrosse freshman/attack JoJo Marasco for Syracuse's 6 p.m. game Sunday at Rutgers will be tough because of the rookie's ability to dodge from behind the goal while playing attack and from up top while playing midfield. Marasco is battling a lower leg injury and is "doubtful" for the game. "We lose someone who’s been getting better every game, has played two positions for us (midfield and attack) and can invert from the midfield position," SU coach John Desko said. "I think we saw he probably had his best game against Princeton a week ago (three goals), so we think he is getting better at the right time of year and is understanding the offense from two different positions. Losing him gives us one less card."

College and high school officials are being liberal in interpreting the rules on stalling, and it's actually good for the game. More and more officials are giving less time (about 45 seconds) before enforcing the stalling rule, and it's being called more on the high school level than the college. I like it that way because it forces an uptempo game, and that's the way lacrosse was meant to be played.

One of the many characteristics embodied by the Syracuse lacrosse program is the importance of family. Families always support one another and aid one of their kin if they’re in need. It’s an attitude instilled by Hall of Fame coach Roy Simmons Jr. in the hundreds of players who came to Syracuse to play for him from 1971-98 and it continues to this day. That’s why when a group of Simmons’ lacrosse alums, affectionately known as the Burnt Orange, heard about his plan to start the Nancy Simmons Wisdom House of Fayetteville, N.Y. they were eager to help.

He was ably assisted by Eccles, with five goals and two assists.

More so than at any time in recent memory, school budgets are being scrutinized by boards of eductaion, administrators and citizens. New York State government's alarming budget problems, the fruit of decades of reckless spending by the leadership of both major political parties, has led to pressure on school districts to preserve revenue and cut expenses to a degree not seen in many years.

The list that follows is not comprehensive, but hopefully is representative of what is taking place across New York. We are gathering as mush information as we can find on sports-related cuts that are either being contemplated or have already been approved for presentation to voters.

Bouncing back from a season-opening 16-9 defeat to Jamesville-DeWitt, visiting West Genesee led the entire way Thursday and defeated the Frontier League's defending champion, Carthage, 10-4 in non-league boys lacrosse play.

"I think J-D got West Genny mad," Carthage coach Kirk Ventiquattro said. "They came up here ready to play serious lacrosse. We couldn't win a faceoff all day, which hurt. I also thought that their new goalie - Tim Birchler - did a pretty good job. We took 26 shots but we could only get four past him. We're going to have to shoot a lot better than we did today."

As such we had/have good 9 to 5 jobs with benefits. Wall Street was/is crawling with one time collegiate lacrosse players who are hired for their solid academic training, aggressive personalities, ability to think quickly on their feet, and lacrosse networking.
