The SU men's lacrosse team will take on Providence two weeks from Sunday in the season opener. Thursday is their first dress rehearsal.
The reigning national champions will host Hofstra and cross town rival Le Moyne in a three-way scrimmage. It is the first chance for the fans and for the Orange themselves to see how the 2009 team stacks up without guys like Leveille and Brooks out there. It will be a welcome respite as well after three weeks of practicing against themselves.
