Northwestern Preview

The Wildcats enter the Final Four contests against Syracuse looking to make their ninth appearance in the National Championship Game for a chance at their eighth title. From 2005 through 2012, Coach Kelly Amonte Hiller led the program to six consecutive titles and all nine appearances in the final. The program has hit a title drought since then but is in a prime position to get it done.

For Northwestern, it’s all about offense. The team has an unmatched two of the top 10 scorers in the nation. Lauren Gilbert is seventh, averaging 4.33 goals per game, while junior Izzy Scane has paced the nation with 6.27 goals per game. In the Wildcats’ Elite Eight showdown with No.7 Duke, Gilbert and Scane outscored the Blue Devils themselves. Gilbert scored six goals, while Scane added five of her own on seven goal-shots, as well as two assists. It should come as no surprise that Northwestern led the nation in score differential, winning by 10.4 points per game. Their offensive onslaught will meet its match against the Syracuse Orange.

Syracuse Preview

Hoping to make their second appearance in the National Championship Game and win their first title, Syracuse knows how to score it right along with Northwestern. The Orange finished the season just 22 goals short of the Wildcats with 287, which was the seventh most in the country. Though they may not have the consistent firepower from a single player, Syracuse has been driven by steady contributions as a team.

Therein lies the way that the Orange can get by Northwestern and advance. Teamwork will be needed to shut down Scance and force Gilbert and the rest of the team to carry the load. Of course, that’s easier said than done and has surely been tried before. It also would take an extraordinary effort from the Orange defense that allowed the 11th most goals this season. That’s what it takes to be a champion, though, and Syracuse will have to be their best selves to pull of the upset.
