"Lost Trophy" Documentary Set to Debut on ESPNU

from press release
The 1990 Syracuse men's lacrosse team is considered by many to be the best college team ever. Undefeated, owners of what would be NCAA per-game records for scoring margin (11.31 goals), average goals (20.85) and average points (33.31), winners of their third straight national title and featuring five first-team All-Americans (attackmen Greg Burns and Tom Marechek, midfielders Paul and Gary Gait and defenseman Pat McCabe), Syracuse beat Loyola 21-9 in the ’90 national championship game.
Yet this team and those legendary players won't be recognized at this year's Final Four when the NCAA typically honors the 25th Anniversary Championship Team. That's because the NCAA vacated that championship and those records, placing an asterisk next to Syracuse's title. To this day, the 1990 NCAA men's lacrosse Division I championship plaque remains missing.
