Men's lacrosse Game of the Week: No. 9 Duke vs. No. 13 Syracuse

No. 9 Duke (8-3) vs. No. 13 Syracuse (4-3)

Sunday, 4 p.m., East Rutherford, N.J.

Outlook: This contest, the second game of the Konica Minolta Big City Classic, could be a watershed moment for the Orange, which is still reeling from Sunday's 11-10 loss to Villanova, the program's first defeat in Big East Conference play. Syracuse owns a 5-1 advantage in this series; that loss occurred in 1978. Meanwhile, the Blue Devils have ripped off five straight wins and appear to be rounding into their usual form. The key matchup to watch is Duke sophomore attackman Jordan Wolf trying to dodge Orange junior defenseman Brian Megill.
