Syracuse rallies to beat Virginia in top-ranked matchup

Junior Tim Desko scored a career-high five goals, including three in the second half, to lead the Orange (3-0) to its first regular-season victory over the Cavaliers (4-1) since 2004. But Syracuse can thank senior goalie John Galloway and its defense for shutting down a potent Cavaliers offense that came into the game scoring 16.8 goals per contest.

Scouting the Blue Demons

This section would normally be filled with information about freshman forward Cleveland Melvin, who leads DePaul in scoring at 14.3 points per game on 52 percent shooting. But he will be out for the rest of the year after he sprained his left thumb in a 76-51 loss to St. John’s on Feb. 23.

Big lineup will play more often

During Saturday’s 58-51 victory against Georgetown, the two combined for 20 minutes of action. Keita had one rebound in 13 minutes of play, while Melo had a rebound and two points on an alley-oop from Scoop Jardine in transition. It was the first time that Melo played more than five minutes since Syracuse’s 72-49 win against South Florida on Feb. 9. It may be a sign of things to come as Syracuse heads into championship season.
