We have a Scoop Jardine sighting! SU’s floor general for last year’s Orange squad tweeted out his displeasure with his former coach’s statement on Georgetown’s Otto Porter being the best small forward in Big East history.
Porter is certainly a stud, but Jardine might have a point here. Carmelo Anthony did win Syracuse a title in his first and only season with the Orange. Maybe Boeheim’s memory is starting to fade.
BEST OF MAXIM
Otto Porter Jr. did not play a particularly great game on Thursday.
This is not at all to say that the Big East Player of the Year played poorly during top-seeded Georgetown's 62-43 smothering of Cincinnati in the Hoyas first Big East tournament game. Otto Porter does pretty much anything he's asked - run the fast break, play physical in the paint, harass the opponent with...
Syracuse’s Jim Boeheim forgot that he was on national tv during the first round of the Big East Tournament on Thursday against Seton Hall. How does Boeheim’s pick rack up agains these guys?
Syracuse hung on in overtime tonight, defeating Georgetown by a score of 58-55 in what is now officially the final Big East game between the two schools. Here is the last play, along with Jim Boeheim and John Thompson shaking hands afterwards.
Otto Porter Jr. scored 18 points and No. 5 Georgetown advanced to the Big East tournament semifinals, recovering from a mid-game hiccup to beat Cincinnati 62-43 on Thursday.
Markel Starks had 14 points and D'Vauntes Smith-Rivera added 13 off the bench, including a tiebreaking 3-pointer that sparked a game-turning run for the top-seeded Hoyas (25-5).
Georgetown, looking to land...
We’ve all been there. You have something in your nose that you just know can’t be blown out. Sometimes it gets to the point where it doesn’t matter who’s watching — you just have to dig. It appears that happened to Syracuse coach Jim Boeheim during the Big East Tournament on Wednesday.
As you can see, cameras spotted Boeheim digging for gold while wearing his baller eyeglasses...
Tweet The Syracuse Orange advanced to the Big East Tournament final on Saturday thanks to a 58-55 victory over the Georgetown Hoyas Friday night in their last meeting as both members of the conference. Three players scored 13 points (James Southerland, Brandon Triche, and Baye Keita) to lead the Orange, but it was junior [...]
Being up by 15 points is never a bad thing. Except maybe for Syracuse. Just ask Jim Boeheim:
“It was probably the worst thing to happen to get up 15. If we hadn’t played well and we were up four or five, they probably wouldn’t have done that, but that’s what they had to do at that point to go after it, and that was exactly what I would have tried to do, and that’s what...
Just when you think ESPN is being too conservative after banning Bill Simmons from Twitter for three days for insubordination, the network goes and does something like this. Perhaps whoever makes decisions on homepage photos should get a few days off as well.
Yep. This is the picture ESPN rolled with on its homepage during the end of the Georgetown vs. Cincinnati game – JaQuon...

It had to end this way. Syracuse vs Georgetown in the final Big East Tournament. Friday night in the Garden. One more game, winner gets permanent bragging rights, loser has a stale feeling and will always be remembered by the alumni as the 2013 team that lost to their bitter rival...
No. 5 Georgetown 62, Cincinnati 43. With AP Photos. By MIKE FITZPATRICK AP Sports Writer All that Cincinnati can do now is wait.
Otto Porter Jr. scored 18 points and No. 5 Georgetown beat the Bearcats 62-43 on Thursday, shrugging off a mid-game comeback led by Cashmere Wright in the quarterfinals of the Big East tournament.
After losing seven of its last 11 games, Cincinnati (22...
It's the end of an era as both of these teams will be headed to a new conference next season. In the begining it appeared as if it would be a game fitting of the end of the Big East as it is currently known--Louisville vs. Syracuse; No. 4 vs. No. 19; Rick Pitino vs. Jim Boeheim.
Yes, sports fans, this one had the making of a great one. For one half it looked like it as the...
Syracuse had a huge lead in the second half and was in perfect position to say goodbye to the Big East with a bang.
It all slipped away so fast.
Lightning fast, like those Louisville guards.
In their final Big East appearance before bolting to the ACC next season, the 19th-ranked Orange wilted against Louisville's relentless pressure defense and squandered a 16-point advantage...

This week’s ASE’s Pick of the Week feature is dedicated to the Big East, and more specifically the Georgetown-Syracuse rivalry. Tonight, the two will clash for one last time as Big East rivals. Next season, Syracuse will be part of the ACC, and Georgetown will be part of the Catholic Seven, or the new Big East, which I’m having difficulty accepting...
