ABOUT THE SERIES The Orange began its varsity lacrosse history with a 9-1 loss at home to Hobart on April 29, 1916. Since then, it has dominated the series thanks to some lenghy winning streaks. SU won six consecutive meetings from 1921 to 1926, 10 in a row from 1930 to 1936, 11 straight from 1952 to 1963 and a series-best 19 in a row from 1987 to 2005. Hobart’s 9-8 victory at the Carrier Dome in 2006 snapped SU’s series winning streak, but the Orange has rebounded to win the last two matchups, including a 13-5 victory last year at McCooey Field.

DESKO VERSUS HOBART SU head coach John Desko is 9-1 all-time against the Statesmen since taking over the SU program in 1999. Desko’s only loss to the Statesmen came by the score of 9-8 in 2006.

LAST TIME THEY MET

#2 SYRACUSE 13, HOBART 5 Tuesday, March 25, 2008 McCooey Field Geneva, N.Y. Senior Mike Leveille scored his 100th career goal and finished with four points on three goals and one assist to help lead the Orange to a 13-5 win at Hobart. With the victory, the Orange took home the Kraus-Simmons Trophy, awarded to the winner of the rivalry game between the two schools, for the second consecutive year and the 21st time overall. Leveille reached the milestone with 1:49 remaining in the third quarter, grabbing a rebound off a shot by Dan Hardy that hit the pipe, and sending it past Hobart goalie Max Silberlicht. With the goal Leveille became the 21st player in Syracuse history to reach the 100-goal plateau. Junior Kenny Nims recorded a hat trick with three goals and two assists. His five points were a game high. Classmate Matt Abbott tied his personal best for the second straight game with three points on a goal and two helpers. Scores from Nims and senior Steven Brooks gave the Orange a 2-0 advantage after the first quarter. Hobart answered back, scoring the first goal of the second quarter, but Syracuse outscored the Statesman 3-2 in the second period to take a 5-2 lead at the half. The Orange broke the game open in the third quarter, outscoring the Statesmen, 4-1, in the period to claim a 9-3 lead. SU outshot Hobart, 16-4, in the stanza. Freshman long-stick middie Joel White scored his first career goal off an assist from Leveille during the spurt. Leveille contributed three consecutive goals at the end of the third and start of the fourth quarter to push the margin to eight, 11-3, and scores from Brooks and junior Greg Niewieroski secured the 13-5 victory. Freshman goalie John Galloway tallied 14 saves for the Orange, while allowing just five goals. It marked the second straight game the Orange allowed five or fewer goals. The last time the SU defense achieved that feat was back in April 2000 when it held Penn and Princeton to four goals each on consecutive days. SYRACUSE 13, HOBART 5

NOTES SCOUTING HOBART First-year head coach T.W. Johnson guided the Statesmen to their best start since 1998 with five consecutive wins to open the season before losing 5-4 Saturday to Rutgers. Prior to taking over the program, Johnson served as an assistant to Statesmen head coach Matt Kerwick for four years. Hobart’s fast start this year can be attributed to the play of its defense. The Statesmen lead the nation in scoring defense at 5.33 goals per contest. Junior goalie Max Siberlicht leads the country in save percentage (.677) and ranks second in goalsagainst average (5.33). He recorded a season-best 16 saves in the team’s win over Georgetown and has been tabbed the ECAC Defensive Player of the Week twice this season. Offensively, senior attackman Jeff Colburn leads the club in points (20) and assists (12). Junior Tyler Cassell is the squad’s best finisher with 11 goals. Senior defensive midfielder Matt Smalley leads Hobart with 25 ground balls.

BIG WINNERS Syracuse and Hobart are two of the winningest programs in the history of college lacrosse. The two upstate New York programs have combined to win exactly 1,500 games. The Orange ranks second with 782 all-time victories. The Statesmen are fourth with 718. Syracuse and Hobart are two of five Division I programs with at least 700 wins. Johns Hopkins (885), Navy (734) and Army (704) are the others.

A WIN AGAINST HOBART WOULD … … Improve the Orange’s record against Hobart to 10-1under head coach John Desko. … Extend Syracuse’s season winning streak to four games. … Give the Orange its third straight win against Hobart. … Improve SU’s record 22-3 since the start of the 2008 season. … Improve the Orange’s all-time Carrier Dome record to 172-24. … Give the Orange a 354-157-11 all-time record against opponents located in the state of New York.

LAST TIME OUT: SYRACUSE VS. BINGHAMTON - MARCH 21, 2009 The Orange used its superior offensive depth and a suffocating defense in the second half to post a 13-4 decision against Binghamton at the Carrier Dome. SU featured nine different goal scorers, including junior attackman Chris Daniello who recorded his second career hat trick to lead the Orange. After falling behind 2-1 early in the second quarter, the Orange went on a 5-1 run to take a 6-3 advantage at halftime. In the second half, SU used an aggressive defense to limit the Bearcats to one goal. Binghamton managed just seven shots aftermission and the Orange held the Bearcats scoreless for the final 28:33 of the contest.

POLL POSITION Syracuse is ranked second in both the NIKE/Inside Lacrosse Media Poll and the USILA Coaches’ Poll this week It marks the fourth straight week Syracuse is listed second in both sets of rankings. The Orange has been ranked second in all seven editions of this year’s media poll. Syracuse started the season at No. 1 in the USILA Coaches Poll and held the top spot for three weeks until a 13-12 loss to Virginia on Feb. 27 elevated the Cavaliers to the top spot. Syracuse has been ranked either first or second in both polls in 14 of the last 15 weeks dating back to March 24, 2008.

90

The 2008 season marked the 90th season of Orange men’s lacrosse.

The attack combination of senior Kenny Nims and sophomore Stephen Keogh combined for eight goals and 15 points in SU’s season-opening, 22-3, win against Providence. Nims tallied a career-best eight points and tied his career high with five assists. Keogh notched a personal-best five goals and seven points against the Friars. Either Nims or Keogh recorded a point on 12 of the team’s 22 scores and Keogh netted four straight goals in the first and second quarters as part of a 15-0 Orange run that sealed the game.

NOTING SU’S SEASON-OPENING WIN AGAINST PROVIDENCE The Orange began the 2009 campaign with a resounding 22-3 victory against Providence on Feb. 15 to improve its all-time record to 72-18 (.800) in season-opening games. It is 31-9 in campaign starters since 1970 and has won 13 straight, including all 11 under head coach John Desko. Syracuse’s 22 goals was the most for an SU squad in a season opener since it also tallied 22 against Virginia in the 1997 season starter. It also marked the most goals in an opener for the Orange under head coah John Desko. The Orange’s 19-goal win represented the largest margin of victory for Syracuse since it knocked off Michigan State by 20, 27-7, on March 10, 1993. It was also the Orange’s largest margin of victory in a season-opening game since it defeated Cortland, 25-1, to begin the 1952 season.

WORKING OVERTIME Since 1971, Syracuse has posted a 22-14 record in games decided in overtime and is 8-8 in 16 extra-session games since head coach John Desko took over the program in 1999.

ALL-AMERICAN ORANGE Eight members of the Syracuse men’s lacrosse team were named 2009 preseason All-Americans by Inside Lacrosse. Seniors Matt Abbott and Sid Smith were named to the first team, while seniors Kenny Nims and Dan Hardy were picked to the second team. In addition, sophomore Joel White was a third-team selection and senior Pat Perritt, junior Cody Jamieson and sophomore John Lade were honorable mention choices. The Orange’s eight honorees were the most for a Division I school.

FOUR ELECTED TEAM CAPTAINS FOR 2009 Seniors Matt Abbott, Kenny Nims, Pat Perritt and Spencer Van Schaack have been elected captains for the 2009 season in a vote by their teammates. All four players are serving the role for the first time. Abbott’s father, Tom, was also an SU team captain (1978). The Abbotts are believed to be the second father-son captain combination in program history (Roy Simmons Sr./Roy Simmons Jr.).

COACHING STAFF BLEEDS ORANGE All four members of the Syracuse coaching staff played lacrosse for the Orange under legendary mentor Roy Simmons Jr. Head coach John Desko, assistant coach Roy Simmons III and volunteer assistant Kevin Donahue were teammates at SU in the late 1970’s and were members of SU’s first NCAA Tournament squad in 1979. Desko and Donahue were senior co-captains that year. Assistant coach Lelan Rogers played two years for the Orange (1986-87) before joining the staff as a graduate assistant from 1988-90. In addition to every member of the men’s staff, Syracuse University also produced current women’s head coach Gary Gait. Gait led the Orange to three NCAA Championships and has since become a lacrosse icon.

ORANGE ON THE SMALL SCREEN The Orange men’s lacrosse team will make three national television appearances this season. Its game against Princeton in the inaugural Inside Lacrosse Big City Classic on Saturday, April 4 and its match at Loyola on Saturday, March 28 will both air live on ESPNU. The Loyola game will also be available on WMAR-TV in Baltimore. In addition, the Orange will make an appearance on CBS College Sports when it plays at Massachusetts on April 25. Locally, Syracuse has partnered with Time Warner Sports (Ch. 26 in Syracuse) to televise each of the team’s 10 regular-season home games live. All told a total of 13 of the Orange’s 14 games in 2009 will be televised live.

In his first 10-plus years as the head men’s lacrosse coach at Syracuse University, John Desko has blazed a trail of excellence that speaks for itself and distinguishes him as one of the most-respected coaches in the nation and the world. Throughout his tenure, he has maintained the winning tradition that is Orange lacrosse. Since replacing Hall of Fame coach Roy Simmons Jr. in 1999, Desko has kept the Orange in the hunt for an NCAA title each and every year and he has brought home the national championship trophy four times (2000, 2002, 2004, 2008). In the process, Desko established a successful leadership style recognized by many in the lacrosse world. His legacy of achievement led to his selection as the USILA Division I Coach of the Year in 2008 and his being named the head coach of the 2006 U.S. National Team that competed at the ILF World Championship. They are just two of many honors bestowed upon Desko during his sparkling career. Throughout his tenure, Desko has coached some of the greatest players ever to don a lacrosse jersey and he has left an indelible mark on the history of the game.

2008: A Season to Remember Desko engineered one of the most impressive turnarounds the sport has ever seen in 2008. After going 5-8 and missing the postseason in 2007, he led the Orange to its record 10th NCAA crown and a 16-2 overall record. The title was Desko’s fourth since taking over the program in 1999, putting him in exclusive company as one of only three Division I head coaches to win at least four NCAA titles. In addition, the Orange tied the NCAA record for the best one-year win-loss improvement (+8.5), and its 16 victories matched the school record. Desko’s squad was second in the nation in scoring offense (13.61) and posted the program’s lowest goals-against average since 1970 (7.62). During the regular-season, the Orange reeled off 10 straight wins and went undefeated at the Carrier Dome (9-0). The winning streak was SU’s longest under Desko and represented the program’s most consecutive victories since 1995. Syracuse finished the regular season 12-2 and secured the third seed in the NCAA Tournament. Building on its regular-season success, the team rolled to four straight wins in the postseason, including a 13-10 victory against Johns Hopkins in the title game. On its way to the crown, Syracuse defeated three consecutive top-five opponents and bested second-seeded Virginia, 12-11, in double overtime in one of the most memorable semifinal games in tournament history. In addition to his fourth championship, Desko capped the year by winning the F. Morris Touchstone Award as the USILA Division I Coach of the Year for the first time. He joins Simmons Jr. as the only two Orange mentors to earn the honor.

Setting the Standard Desko owns the best winning percentage (.750) of any active NCAA Division I coach with at least five years of experience and he holds the best winning percentage in the NCAA Championship of any coach in the history of college lacrosse (.821). He’s achieved those marks by recruiting and developing some of the best lacrosse players in the world. Since he accepted the head coaching reins, Syracuse has had 35 players earn a total of 63 All-America nods, including four-time honorees Mike Powell, Mike Springer and Mike Leveille. Two of his charges (Mike Powell in 2002 and 2004 and Mike Leveille in 2008) went on to win the Tewaaraton Trophy as the nation’s best player. Desko’s leadership and longevity have been crucial to establishing the dynasty that is SU lacrosse. The Orange advanced to the national semifinals each season for 22 straight years between 1983 and 2004. It was as much a reflection upon Desko as anyone, considering he was the one person directly associated with the team for all 22 seasons. During the first 16 years of the Final Four streak, he served as an assistant coach (he spent 19 seasons as an assistant at SU overall) and then led the team to the Final Four in each of his first six years as head coach.

JOHN DESKO, HEAD COACH Success Leads to Opportunity Desko’s coaching success has led him to additional opportunities outside Syracuse, including his appointment as U.S. National Team coach for the 2006 World Games where he led the squad to the silver medal. In addition, Desko served as a coach for the North in the annual North-South Senior All-Star Game at the University of Delaware in 2000. He is also a leader in the sport’s administration. Desko served as a member of the NCAA Lacrosse Committee, a group that oversees and regulates rules, championships and other issues pertinent to the sport from 1999-2003.

The Heir Apparent When Roy Simmons Jr. retired in 1998, Desko was the perfect choice to continue the Orange’s championship tradition. He spent 19 seasons as Simmons’ top assistant during a time when SU won six national championships and appeared in 16 consecutive Final Fours. Prior to becoming Simmons’ top lieutenant in 1980, Desko was a player for him from 1976-79. Upon his arrival on campus, Desko helped SU achieve its first winning season (7-4) since 1971. As a sophomore in 1977, Desko and the Orange went 8-6 and scored a then school-record 238 goals. SU’s fastest midfielder his first two seasons, Desko switched to defense as a junior and the Orange continued its winning ways. SU went 10-3 in 1978, and with Desko leading the way, held opponents to 104 goals, the lowest total in eight years. With just two seasons of experience on defense, Desko earned All-America honors in 1979 as he helped SU to a 10-5 record and the school’s first NCAA playoff berth. He served as team captain as a junior and senior, and the Orange’s record improved in each of his four years on the squad. After his playing career ended, Desko joined Simmons’ staff and helped build one of the premier programs in collegiate lacrosse. In his 19 seasons as an assistant, the Orange compiled a record of 229-43 (.842), was invited to the NCAA Tournament 18 times, reached the Final Four 16 consecutive times and won six national championships. Desko coordinated recruiting and served as co-director of the popular Syracuse University Lacrosse Camp, held each summer on campus. He recruited some of the best lacrosse players to ever play the game, including two-time National Player of the Year and Outstanding Midfielder of the Year Gary Gait, two-time Outstanding Attackman of the Year Tim Nelson, four-time AllAmerican Brad Kotz, three-time All-American Paul Gait, and the Powell brothers, the school’s top three all-time leading scorers (Mike, Casey and Ryan).

Syracuse Through and Through Desko attended lacrosse-hotbed West Genesee High School in Syracuse, where he also excelled in football and basketball. He earned his bachelor’s degree in sociology from Syracuse University. In the fall of 1997, Desko was inducted into the Upstate New York chapter of the Lacrosse Hall of Fame for his service to local lacrosse. Desko received another local sports honor in 2008 when he was inducted into the Greater Syracuse Sports Hall of Fame in a ceremony at Drumlins Country Club. Desko’s two younger brothers, Dave and Jeff, were also All-American lacrosse players at Syracuse, and his son, Tim, is the latest member of the family to join the program. Tim is an attackman and also takes faceoffs for the Orange. John, his wife, Cindy, their sons, Tim and Ryan, and daughters, Nicole and Casey, all live in Syracuse.

Top-ranked Syracuse from a five-goal deficit midway through the fourth quarter, but couldn’t overtake No. 2 Virginia and lost 13-12 in front of 16,595 fans at the Carrier Dome. SU scored four goals in the game’s final five minutes, but the Cavaliers hung on for the win. Trailing 13-8, Syracuse got two goals Kenny Nims Dan Hardy from senior Kenny Nims, one from senior Dan Hardy and one from redshirt freshman Tim Desko in the span of 3:30 to pull within one goal with 1:18 left in the game. The Orange won the ensuing faceoff and called timeout with 50 seconds left to set up the game-tying play. But Syracuse turned the ball over and Virginia ran out the clock to record the victory. Syracuse outscored the Cavaliers, 6-3, in the fourth quarter, but Virginia built its lead by outscoring the Orange, 6-2, in the third to break open a 4-4 game. Attackmen Danny Glading, Garrett Billings and midfielder Shamel Bratton each scored twice in the period to give the visitors a 10-6 advantage heading into the final quarter. Virginia looked to be in control of the game when John Haldy scored an unassisted goal with 7:32 to play in regulation, putting the Cavaliers in front, 13-8. But it proved to be their last goal of the night as the Orange roared back before eventually succumbing. Nims scored four goals to lead the Orange, including consecutive tallies in the fourth quarter to help SU get within striking distance. Sophomore Josh Amidon set a personal best with three points (1g, 2a). Hardy also contributed three points (2g, 1a) for the hosts. Sophomore goalie John Galloway made 13 saves, including three in the fourth quarter to give SU a chance to tie it at the end.

Sophomore goalie John Galloway had a career-high 19 saves and second-year attackman Stephen Keogh scored four of the Orange’s eight goals as No. 2 Syracuse defeated No. 12 Georgetown, 8-5, in front of a sold-out crowd of 2,942 at Multi-Sport Field. In addition to his four goals, Keogh added an assist to finish with a game-high five points. Senior midfielder Matt Abbott tied his career high with three points (2g, 1a). Both of John Galloway Stephen Keogh his goals came in a 3-0 Orange scoring run to close the game. Galloway’s performance keyed an Orange defense that held the Hoyas to just one goal in the first half and shut out Georgetown in the fourth quarter after the Hoyas rallied from a 5-3 deficit to tie the game at 5-5 on an unassisted goal by Todd Cochran with 45 seconds to go in the third. Cochran’s score proved to be Hoyas’ last goal of the afternoon as the Orange turned to Abbott and Galloway down the stretch. Abbott’s first goal gave SU a 6-5 cushion heading into the fourth quarter, and with SU leading, 7-5, on Keogh’s fourth tally, Abbott notched the game’s final goal with 9:25 left in regulation. That was all Galloway needed made six saves in the final quarter to secure the win. Galloway’s fourth-quarter performance was the exclamation point on a terrific game which included 10 saves in the first half, nine of which came in the second quarter. In addition to Galloway, the Orange got a superb effort from close defenders Sid Smith, John Lade and Matt Tierney. They combined to hold Georgetown leading scorers Ricky Mirabito and Craig Dowd to just one point. SU’s defensive effort helped negate a 45-36 Georgetown advantage in shots and a 12-5 Hoya advantage at the faceoff X.
