The freshman had started all 16 games for the Orange.

Syracuse forward Chris McCullough will miss the remainder of the 2014-15 season after tearing the ACL in his right knee Sunday evening against Florida State, Syracuse Athletics announced on Monday afternoon.

Surgery has not been scheduled, according to the release.

The junior has now suffered two ACL injuries within the past 10 months.

No. 21 Syracuse, off to a 10-4 start, will be without star guard Brittney Sykes for the rest of the season, according to a release by Syracuse Athletics on Tuesday. 

Sykes, who left Sunday’s game against No. 4 Notre Dame, re-aggravated her surgically repaired ACL after originally tearing it last March in the first round of the NCAA tournament. She made her season debut on Dec. 28 and played in only three games this season.

A struggling offense and off-the-field distractions derailed a promising start to the 2014 season.

Syracuse head coach Phil Wheddon had one word to sum up the 2014 season.

Disappointment.

Although the Orange strung together a decent start, it began to hit a lull during the middle of the campaign and struggled to capitalize on scoring chances, an issue that became even more prevalent against four ranked opponents at the end of the season. SU finished with an overall record of 5-10-4 and failed to qualify for the Atlantic Coast Conference and NCAA tournaments.

Without a signature win to its credit, SU is hoping for a strong push during conference play to bolster its tournament chances.

Since the Orange’s opening victory against Kennesaw State on Nov. 14, Syracuse head coach Jim Boeheim has repeatedly said his team has the potential and talent to win any game. All it needed was time, both for key underclassmen to find an offensive flow and the team’s confidence to return to a level not seen since last season’s 25-game winning streak. 

But as the Orange’s second slate of Atlantic Coast Conference games began Saturday at Virginia Tech, that time officially ran out.

Led by one of the nation's best players in goalkeeper Alex Bono, the Orange became a legitimate ACC contender.

Magical. Remarkable. Extraordinary. 

Heartbreaking. 

With a painful 2-1 overtime loss to Georgetown in the third round of the NCAA Division I Men’s Soccer Championship on Nov. 30, a monumental season came to a grinding halt for head coach Ian McIntyre and his Syracuse squad.

The Atlantic Coast Conference announced its complete women's basketball schedule for the 2014-15 season Tuesday morning, according to Syracuse Athletics.

Syracuse, which enters its second season in the ACC, will play 16 conference games. Eight of those will be held at the Carrier Dome.

The Orange opens conference play on Jan. 4 in the Dome against 2014 national finalist Notre Dame. Seven total games will come against opponents from last season's NCAA Tournament field.

Chancellor Kent Syrverud announced in an email that a community forum will address the offensive Instagram video that has been circulating this weekend.

Syracuse University’s administration is now planning a community forum in response to the Instagram video featuring Syracuse University soccer player Hanna Strong.  

The video, which has been circulating through news outlets and social media this weekend, catalyzed a strong and rapid reaction on campus after it was posted on Saturday. In the video, Strong, who is a senior midfielder on the women’s soccer team, shouts racial and homophobic slurs.

Kati Nearhouse scores twice in Syracuse debut to lead offense.

Following a victory over Albany on Saturday, No. 5 Syracuse carried a 5-0 record into Sunday’s non-conference finale against Ball State.

The Cardinals also entered the match undefeated, and in order to remain perfect, the Orange needed to ace arguably its toughest test to date.

It did with flying colors.

Both Kati Nearhouse and Lauren Brooks scored a pair of goals as the Orange offense steamrolled to a 5-0 victory at J.S. Coyne Stadium. SU has now started three-consecutive seasons with at least six victories.

Alex Lamontagne's goal in the 102nd minute downs Vermont.

When Stephanie Skilton buried her own rebound in the 15th minute of play Sunday, Syracuse took a two-goal lead and looked to be in cruise control.

But Vermont had no intention of going away quietly.

Emma Russell records Syracuse's second hat trick in as many days in 6-1 victory.

After outscoring its first three opponents 21-4, No. 5 Syracuse (4-0) completed its four-game sweep through the state of Ohio with a 6-1 victory over Kent State on Tuesday afternoon.

Junior forward Emma Russell scored two goals within the first five minutes en route to a hat trick, the second in as many games by a Syracuse player.
