Marasco earns Big East award
Somers’ own JoJo Marasco, who tied a career-high on Sunday with five points in Syracuse’s 11-9 win over Army, was named Big East offensive player of the week today.
The sophomore attackman had three goals and two assists against Army, giving him his second career hat trick.
Teammate John Galloway, SU’s senior goalie, was named to the Big East honor roll. He made seven of his nine saves in the second half against the Black Knights.
The Orange had built a 7-0 lead over Army, which stunned Syracuse 9-8 in overtime in an NCAA tournament opening-round game last year.
The teams’ latest meeting marked potentially the final college confrontation between Marasco and his older brother Matt, a senior starting defenseman for the Black Knights.
Syracuse beat Army 12-7 in the regular season last year before the playoff loss.
