The Orange Eagle could all come down to this. Oh, also, a spot in the ACC semifinals.

BC Athletics

The Boston College women's lacrosse team is hoping to truly make this their most memorable season in program history. It's all been good so far- they carry a 14-2 record into the postseason and are ranked #4 in the polls. But it's the postseason for which their year will be remembered, and they will hope to break some new ground for BC. The school has not won an ACC postseason championship since the men's soccer team's triumph all the way back in 2007, so hopes are high that the women's lacrosse team can break the dry spell.

Before the Eagles can think about ACC titles, Final Fours, and the like, they will need to get past a tricky draw in the ACC quarterfinals: the Syracuse Orange, who had a down year by their standards and ended up #6 in the conference. Because #goacc, Syracuse is #7 in the country despite being #6 in the ACC. Yep.

If the Eagles pick up a win tonight, they could lock down the Most Important Trophy of All - the Orange Eagle trophy, currently a dead heat between BC and Syracuse. Here's a look at the matchup.

Key fact:

BC's Mikaela Rix had missed several weeks after being injured against Duke, but returned on Saturday to limited action against UNH. If she's healthy and able to play and contribute like her normal self, she will be a huge factor for the Eagles. If she's not, it's a major plus for 'Cuse.
