SYRACUSE, N.Y. (WSYR-TV) — In a season where the Syracuse Men’s Lacrosse team has been playing below expectations, their chances of making the NCAA tournament have taken a serious hit. 

NewsChannel 9 Sports Director Steve Infanti has confirmed reports that Chase Scanlan has been suspended indefinitely by the program. 

“Chase Scanlan has been suspended indefinitely from the men’s lacrosse team. We will have no further comment,” SU stated in a text Tuesday. 

Scanlan, who wears the historic number 22 for SU, is the team’s leading goal-scorer this season with 24. 

Syracuse, 5-4 this season, suffered its worst loss of the year after falling 21-9 to fifth-ranked North Carolina Saturday. Scanlan registered a goal and an assist in the loss.
