Or that Brianna Butler missed 14 shots as Syracuse’s season ended at the hands of Kentucky. Or even that Rachel Coffey will not don an Orange uniform again.Syracuse set a goal for itself at media day in October: to finish in the Atlantic Coast Conference’s top five, and the Orange nailed it.Despite the heartbreak that usually accompanies the end of each season, it didn’t take long for head coach Quentin Hillsman and his players to sit back, take a wide glance at their year and smile as they reflected on what they achieved and what’s to come.“We kind of knew who the powerhouse teams were in the ACC and we wanted to be one of them,” Sykes, a sophomore, said. “To finish fifth is a statement in its own and shows that we are a force to be reckoned with.”Syracuse (23-10, 10-6 ACC) placed fifth in the ACC, won a game in the conference tournament and won an NCAA tournament game for the first time in program history. The Orange earned a No. 6 seed and defeated Chattanooga — even while losing Sykes to a torn ACL and meniscus — before falling to third-seeded Kentucky in the second round.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textThis Syracuse team scored more than any other in Hillsman’s eight-year tenure, and hit its goal of double-digit ACC wins.“I think everything we set out to accomplish, we did,” Hillsman said. “All the things that we’ve done this season, that our players have accomplished, have been tremendous.”In 2012–13, Syracuse finished 24-8 with the best winning percentage in school history. Much of that success came from the dominance of center Kayla Alexander, who left SU as the program’s leading scorer, as well as starting guard Elashier Hall and Carmen Tyson-Thomas.Still, the Orange went on to make program history this season and is poised to build on that success next year.“They are young, and they’ve been through so much already,” senior point guard Rachel Coffey said. “I think they’re all ready.”Had Syracuse lost three or four games in its 13-game nonconference schedule, Hillsman said he still would’ve declared it a great stretch.Even better, the Orange lost just two before the start of ACC play.On Nov. 30, sophomore Brianna Butler dropped 29 points to lead SU to an upset of No. 12 Texas A&M, highlighting a nonconference slate that shot Syracuse up to a program-high No. 20 ranking in the Associated Press Top 25 poll and preparing SU for its rigorous ACC schedule.“When you’re not playing good enough competition,” Hillsman said, “you kind of get a false sense of reality of how good you are, and I didn’t want our kids to have that.”The Orange’s first go-round in the ACC had its highs and lows.It took three tries to notch the first conference win. Duke coasted to a 33-point win. Notre Dame, which still hasn’t lost, blew out the Orange by 37. And only one of SU’s six ACC losses was by a single-digit margin.“We just have to use those games as incentive to get better,” Butler said. “Look at what we did wrong, and try to improve on that for next year.”But after a 1-3 start to conference play, SU rattled off two separate four-game winning streaks — one of which included an upset of No. 6 North Carolina — to earn the fifth seed in the ACC tournament before advancing to the second round.In the first round of the NCAA tournament, the Orange faced its biggest obstacle of the year in watching Sykes, SU’s leading scorer, hit the hardwood with her torn ACL and meniscus in the second half against Chattanooga — and then having to continue the game.SU collected itself and prevailed by six points, and in the next round fought Kentucky down to the wire before ultimately falling short.“We knew with her being out, we had to come together,” Coffey said, “and I think we really played team basketball.”In addition to losing two starters in Coffey and center Shakeya Leary, as well as reserve guard La’Shay Taft, the Orange may very well have to begin next season without Sykes.Sykes has yet to undergo surgery on her right knee, so a timetable for her return is uncertain.“It’s tough to say,” Hillsman said. “Some people take longer, then you got Adrian Peterson. I’m not going to bring her back until she’s ready to play.”At the beginning of next year, the annual questions will resurface about how the Orange will move on, this time from another historic season.Sykes has her answer already.“Everybody was trying to figure out what we were going to do when we lost Kayla, Lacie and Carmen. Same thing,” Sykes said. “For any team, they should have full confidence that they’re going to come back great and I believe in my team.“Obviously, we made up for it. We’re going to make up for it again.” Comments Facebook Twitter Google+
Published on April 24, 2016 at 10:50 pm Facebook Twitter Google+ A group of Louisville players gathered in the concourse of the Carrier Dome after the team’s 13-10 loss to Syracuse. Maybe UofL’s biggest individual loss that led to its defeat was at the draw circle, where Kayla Treanor helped SU win 16 draws. The Cardinals won nine.Louisville’s Kaylin Morissette, who has won the most draw controls per game in the country, walked up to a group of teammates and a few parents after the game.“Keep being strong on the draw,” the parent said to Morissette.“I’ll do my best,” she responded before posing for a picture.But most players’ and teams’ best has hardly been enough to beat Treanor this year or ever in her career. On Saturday, Treanor even won 12 draws to herself compared to Morissette’s four. And the senior SU attack piled that on top of her two goals and three assists.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text“Today I looked at, a couple goals break the record, but to have 12 draw controls against the No. 1 draw control person in the country, who only had four, was amazing,” SU head coach Gary Gait said. “So, I thought that was her biggest feat of the day was dominating the top draw control person in the country.”Jordana Rubin | Web designerThis is the time of year when Treanor should be able to look back on all she’s done, because over the last four years she’s proven to be one of the best women’s lacrosse players ever. In addition to leading Syracuse to the win on Saturday, she broke the career record for goals at Syracuse.That record was a long time coming for a player who has been No. 5 Syracuse’s (14-4, 5-2 Atlantic Coast) best for the last two seasons. Now is the time to understand what Treanor has done, independent of this postseason, is nothing short of amazing. In addition to being second in career points and first in career goals, she’s helped SU get to each of the last three seasons’ final weekends. But instead of looking back, Treanor deflected to her teammates.“I guess I feel really lucky to have played here and to have played with such good players because there’s a lot of people before me that set the path,” Treanor said, “and without my teammates I would have never gotten these opportunities and without playing on good teams you don’t get as many opportunities as I’ve been so fortunate to have.”Fans already knew Treanor’s next goal would break the record. After her first goal, the public address announcer let everyone know Treanor had tied it. Then there was a false alarm of sorts, too — a Treanor goal was disallowed at halftime but not before it was announced as her record-breaking goal.Yet, after Treanor’s actual record-breaking goal, the fans gave half an ovation. Treanor ran back to the draw circle before the crowd’s clapping could even really start. As fans clapped, she hardly looked around. She just patted the pocket of her stick and waited for the referee to place the ball between her and Morissette.“Definitely with the momentum of the game, that goal,” Treanor said of how sweet the goal was, “We needed a score, we were not doing well in the second half and we needed a score.”That’s the way it’s always been for Treanor.Hannah Wagner | Staff PhotographerEven as Treanor walked into the press conference, she donned a sweatshirt that read “NCAA lacrosse.” She’s always looked ahead, because how she defines herself, at least publicly, is how her team performs. And what she wants is the NCAA lacrosse championship that has so nimbly slipped out of SU’s grasp the last three seasons.Regardless of the postseason, regardless of how Treanor judges her success, regardless of whether attaining the goals record was a bucket-list item or not, Treanor has changed the game all while innovating the work of former SU players Katie Rowan, Alyssa Murray and Michelle Tumolo. All while making Syracuse into an elite program.Sure, part of that is having Gait, possibly the greatest men’s player of all time. But Treanor has been with the program for more than 20 percent of its existence and has molded it as much as any player before her. Her stick skills are almost unparalleled now or in the sport’s history and she hasn’t just been one of SU’s best players ever, she’s been one of the sport’s best players ever. A championship and a Tewaaraton Award would cement her legacy. There’s no doubt about that.But as the final stretch of Treanor’s career reaches its end — a stretch she’ll surely use as a benchmark — what she has done to this point should be recognized.Chris Libonati is an Asst.

The cows were seized a couple of weeks ago by the recently inaugurated Ekiti State Grazing Enforcement Marshal for contravening the anti-grazing law Fayose said: “I have decided to release these cows to strengthen our union So I expect you to comply with the law because after now if you contravene the law we will take appropriate sanctions against you” The governor empowered the traditional rulers to enforce the grazing law in their domains and to apportion lands to herdsmen to do their businesses under a controlled situation “You can’t because you are rearing cows be destroying our farmlands Our people rely on these farms to survive and the moment you are destroying them then they will not be interested to go into farming and hunger will affect all of us” he said Fayose threatened to deal with whoever harassed the cattle rearers while doing their legitimate businesses urging the leaders of Miyetti Allah to always report directly to him any case of intimidation and oppression against their members The Southwest Chairman of Miyetti Allah Alhaji Mohammed Abass warned the government at all levels against politicizing the crisis between his members and farmers in some states Abass who said the cattle business was very profitable in the southwest added that government politicizing the agriculture sector would destroy the business and this he said may have an adverse effect on the diversification process of the government “We want to appeal to the government to leave us out of politics We are here to do our business and whatever crisis we have I think we should be able to resolve it But when issues that could be resolved are being politicized then it assumes a dangerous dimension “Cattle business is profitable in the southwest Many of us were born here and we have

soul of Anambra State senatorial district ended on Monday at the Abuja division of the Court of Appeal where the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) candidate Obiora Okonkwo failed in his bid to unseat the incumbent Victor Umeh A special panel of the appellate court justices in a unanimous judgment dismissed Okonkwo’s appeal for lacking in merit The Court affirmed the judgment of Justice John Tsoho of the Federal High Court Abuja which set aside its own consent judgment delivered on December 13 2017 Justice Tsoho had in the consent judgment ordered the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to issue a Certificate of Return to Obiora Okonkwo as the legitimate candidate for the Anambra Central senatorial seat However the Court on January 12 2018 in a judgment on a motion by INEC set aside the consent judgment in which he ordered INEC to issue Okonkwo with a Certificate of Return In setting aside the judgment Tsoho held that he was misled by the plaintiff Tsoho accordingly aligned himself with the judgment of three Courts of Appeal which ordered INEC to conduct a fresh election within 90 days to fill the vacant senatorial seat Not satisfied with the decision of the trial court Okonkwo approached the Court of Appeal to upturn Tsoho’s decision and ordered INEC to swear him in as the representative of the senatorial district In the notice of appeal which was rooted on 13 grounds Okonkwo had prayed the Court of Appeal to set aside the January 12 2018 ruling of Justice John Tsoho of the Federal High Court which vacated the said consent judgment of December 13 2017 But delivering judgment Monday on Okonkwo’s appeal the appellate court held that the trial court was in order by setting aside the consent judgment it delivered on December 13 2017 He said the Court had
