In college news, JoJo Marasco enjoyed a memorable first game wearing the fabled No. 22 for Syracuse University’s men’s lacrosse team on Sunday.
The sophomore attackman, making his first career start for the Orange, had two goals and two assists in a 13-7 season-opening win against Denver. The performance earned Marasco a spot on the first Big East Conference honor roll for the 2011 season. Teammate John Lade, a defenseman, also made the honor roll. Marasco also had three ground balls and caused two turnovers.
