Syracuse Wins 9th (or is it its 8th) National Title in Lacrosse

If you didn't watch the national championship game in Division I men's lacrosse, you missed a treat, as Syracuse edged Navy, 14-13 before over 43,000 people in Baltimore to win its 9th national title (the reason I suggest that they won their 8th is because some of the articles leading up to this game reported that Hopkins and Syracuse were tied with 7 national titles apiece; I think that the Orange were stripped of a title owing to some recruiting violations, perhaps as recently as within the past 10 years). At any rate, the Orange, the #4 team in the country before the tourney began, got outstanding goaltending (they had something like 16 saves to Navy's 6), which they needed because Navy got the better of them on faceoffs. Mike Powell of Syracuse, who had 5 assists, was named the outstanding player in the tournament. ESPN did a nice job on the telecast, and you can check out a writeup of the game on ESPN.com.

Another great Final Four in men's lacrosse, and another riveting final game.
