The Orange's star attack nets seven goals, while the Maryland transfer makes a statement in her first game with the program.

It's a new and a new team, according to No. 3 Syracuse's Kayla Treanor.

The third-best scorer in team history, Alyssa Murray, is now an assistant coach at Michigan. Also gone from last year's national runner-up are Katie Webster (now a volunteer assistant at SU), midfielder Amy Cross, goalkeeper Alyssa Costantino and defenders Natalie Glanell, Kasey Mock and Liz Harbeson. 

But on Saturday, the Orange proved it's still one of the favorites to win the national title.

The win is SU's first over a ranked opponent this season.

Syracuse made only 27.3 percent of its field goals. It committed 16 turnovers, with 10 in the first half alone. It trailed its opponent in rebounds, blocks and nearly ever relevant shooting category. 

None of that mattered. 

When the final buzzer sounded in the Carrier Dome, the Orange came out victorious. More importantly, it could finally claim a win over a ranked opponent following seven failures.

A local Syracuse man rebuilt his taxi and offers people like SU coach Jim Boeheim rides.

A row of antique yellow-checkered taxicabs lined the road of Brooklyn’s dilapidated Box Street in June. The vehicles stood out with vivid hues on a street populated by warehouses. While this Checker Car Club of America’s annual convention might seem an oddity for most New Yorkers, it’s a tradition for 53-year-old Syracuse resident Phillip Arnold.

Gorman's father died earlier this year, and he quickly realized that nothing could have prepared him for that moment.

With three coffee roasters in Syracuse, it can be hard to decide where to get a caffeine fix. Here's a break down of what to expect at each.

Syracuse has three coffee roasters vying for the attention of caffeine addicts across the region, but who serves the best cup?

Freedom of Espresso has four locations sprinkled throughout Syracuse, Liverpool and Fayetteville. The Fayetteville shop, 128 W. Genesee St., is their home base and roasting facility. The pumpkin latte from Freedom was well balanced—I could taste the espresso while still having that hint of sweet. However, the milk was not steamed properly.
