The final home game of the season features a number of key story lines.
Syracuse's home schedule for the 2014-15 season goes out with a bang tonight, as the Orange will battle No. 2 Virginia at the Carrier Dome at 7 p.m. The game can be seen on ESPN.
Although SU is already banned from postseason competiton, tonight's contest still features plenty of reasons to head to the Loud House or tune into "The Worldwide Leader." Here are a few things to watch for tonight:
Kayla Treanor's four goals leads an explosive Orange attack.
Syracuse head coach Gary Gait said it's unusual to play the same non-conference opponent in back-to-back games, but his team handled that anomaly pretty well on Sunday.
Junior attack Kayla Treanor led SU with four goals, and both Kailah Kempney and Riley Donahue recorded hat tricks in a 19-7 rout over Canisius. The Orange defeated the Golden Griffins, 21-13, on Feb. 7.
Briana Day struggled in the paint as Miami dominated with close-range buckets.
Less than a minute into Syracuse’s game against Miami, Orange forward Briana Day turned the ball over, giving Suriya McGuire an easy layup. While they were only the first two points in the paint of the game for the Hurricanes (17-7, 7-4 ACC), the Orange couldn’t find a way to stop them from adding more down low.
Miami finished the game with 44 points in the paint en route to its 85-71 win over Syracuse (17-8, 7-5) on Thursday night at the Carrier Dome.
