247Sports.com Jim Boeheim and Orange hoops reeled in five more stars last night. That’s 14 stars over the last three weeks if you’re keeping count. Five-star Class of 2014 PF Chris McCullough became the latest Syracuse commit, a day after his Brewster Academy teammate, Ron Patterson, also chose SU. It was a no-brainer for the Bronx native. “When I was on their campus, I felt I was at home already. They showed me the most love. I felt like I fit in there.” The Orange has now received four commitments over the last three weeks. Rochester C Chino Obokoh and Pennsylvania swingman BJ Johnson both committed three weeks ago, but McCullough is the biggest splash.

Cooney’s Comeback: How the SU Sharpshooter is Making Up for Lost Time

Trevor Cooney is like a ghost story. Everyone’s really interested, but no one has seen much of him. Since getting to Syracuse in August of 2011, the Delaware native has yet to play an official game with the Orange. This year, he plans for that to change. He redshirted last season because of SU’s depth in the back court. An October tonsillectomy knocked him out of 14 practices...
