Team of the Week

  Syracuse used two one-goal victories to take the ACC tournament title.

Syracuse is the NCAA.com Men’s Lacrosse Team of the Week after capturing the Atlantic Coast Conference Championship crown last weekend.

The third-seeded Orange pulled off a pair of one-goal victories to earn its first ACC title and take the No. 1 spot in this week’s coaches and media national polls.

Syracuse rallied from a 6-2 deficit to finish then-No. 6 Duke 15-14 in the ACC Championship Game Sunday. Tournament MVP Kevin Rice scored three goals and assisted four to lead the Orange.

Rice’s unassisted goal with 1:48 to play led the Orange to its 9-8 win over then-No. 2 North Carolina Friday in the tournament semifinals. Rice’s goal snapped a 23-minute Syracuse scoring drought. He and Dylan Donahue totaled a team-high four points.

Syracuse (11-2) concludes its regular season Saturday, May 2, when it visits Patriot League champion Colgate (10-4). The game will broadcast live at 3:30 p.m. ET on CBS Sports Network.

Honorable Mentions:

Colgate (10-4): Colgate claimed the Patriot League championship for the first time since 2008 after dispatching Army 11-8 in the finals. Cameron Williams scored three goals in the second quarter to put the Raiders ahead for good.

Johns Hopkins (7-6): Ryan Brown tallied eight goals as Johns Hopkins ended then-No. 2 Maryland’s 11-game win streak with a 15-12 decision Saturday, April 25. The Blue Jays earned a share of the Big Ten regular season title and the top seed in this week’s conference tournament.
