Score: No. 19 Syracuse 75 Seton Hall 63
Stars: Syracuse: James Southerland 20 Pts, 6-for-9 3 Pt FGs. Michael Carter-Williams 6 Pts, 14 Ast. Brandon Triche 17 Pts, 5 Ast. C.J. Fair 16 Pts, 8 Reb.
Story: It’s been a rough few weeks for the Orange. The offense has struggled to score and the team got crushed in its last ever visit to Georgetown. But the Big East Tournament represents the start of a brand new season with the ability to have a fresh start. That fresh start is exactly what Syracuse got.
The offense finally got things together, shooting over 50 percent from the field and 60 percent from deep. Guys like Triche and Southerland, who floundered against Georgetown, picked up the slack and scored when SU needed them most. If the offense finally found its rhythm, watch out.
Seton Hall kept it close in the first half but couldn’t stop the Orange in the second. Even the big men were scoring, something that has happened all year. Christmas and Keita combined for 14 points, includin...
BEST OF MAXIM
James Southerland had a second straight great effort from 3-point range and Michael Carter-Williams scored Syracuse's last seven points as the 19th-ranked Orange held off No. 17 Pittsburgh 62-59 on Thursday in the quarterfinals of the Big East tournament.
It was the last meeting between the schools under the Big East banner as they are both leaving for the Atlantic Coast Conference...
Jim Boeheim thought about the old times.
On Wednesday, Boeheim, who has been Syracuse's head coach for 37 years, walked into the Madison Square Garden locker room. Inside the world's most famous arena, he had no shortage of memories to ponder: Of the 31 Big East tournaments he's coached here, of the 14 Big East tournament finals his Syracuse teams have played in, of...
DIGGING FOR GOLD
You can never be too comfortable when you’re standing on the stage of Madison Square Gahhhden. Unless you’re Syracuse hoops coach Jim Boeheim. In which case, he doesn’t care what you think, especially if you’re Andy Katz. He’ll pick his nose no matter who’s looking, even on camera. Boeheim did just that during the second round of the Big East Tourney on Wednesday...
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?
Brandon Triche has only one more opportunity to make a postseason run, and he knows that. He offers his take on where the Orange are as they move deeper into the Big East Tournament.
What? You’ve never heard that one? You make a Kleenex dance by putting a little boogie in it, of course. How else can you explain Jim Boeheim electing to pick his nose instead of using a Kleenex at the Big East Tournament? The Syracuse Orange were taking on the Seton Hall Pirates at Madison Square Garden on Wednesday night in a Big East Tournament showdown. While the action on...
Syracuse Orange coach Jim Boeheim is paying way too much attention to the Big East Tourney to use a kleenex, so he's got to pick his nose.
James Southerland hit five 3-pointers in the first half to keep No. 19 Syracuse in the game and Brandon Triche keyed a big second-half run that gave the Orange a 75-63 victory Wednesday in the second round of the Big East tournament.
Fifth-seeded Syracuse (24-8) extended its Big East tenure with the win and the Orange will play fourth-seeded and 17th-ranked Pittsburgh in the quarterfinals...
Syracuse coach Scott Shafer has dismissed Markus Pierce-Brewster and Davon Walls for violating team rules.
Both players were charged with felony burglary and misdemeanor petit larceny in connection with the burglary of a campus apartment in late February.
On Tuesday, Shafer said he would let the legal system play out before making a decision on the two players, but he said that...
I sat down to watch the game around 10 pm last night. It’s been that kind of a week. So I suppose I shouldn’t have been surprised.
Where to begin.
First, it has to be recognized just how on James Southerland was in this game. Perfect from outside. Yes, the defense — especially in the first half — was a step slow. But he was knocking everything down regardless. He was 6-9...
Score: No. 19 Syracuse 62 No. 17 Pittsburgh 59
Stars: Syracuse: James Southerland 20 Pts, 6 Reb, 6-for-6 3-Pt FGs. Michael Carter-Williams 11 Pts, 7 Ast. 6 Reb.
Story: It wasn’t easy, but with the help of an incredible shooting performance from James Southerland and some late-game heroics from Michael Carter-Williams, the Orange survives and advances to the semifinal round...
So far it’s all been chalk. No shocks. Small struggles, but nothing unusual. Which seems unusual.
Unfortunately I am time-crunched. Link time.
Pitt feeling confident coming into the final BET. At least based on the regular season results, they should be.
No one should know what to expect from this team, though.
Syracuse is feeling their own level of confidence for this game after...
A poor opening half kept Pittsburgh from having a chance at a last long run in the Big East tournament.
The 17th-ranked Panthers fell behind by 13 points at halftime and even a tough run near the end of the game wasn't enough to avoid a 62-59 loss to No. 19 Syracuse on Thursday in the quarterfinals of the Big East tournament.
The fourth-seeded Panthers used a 10-3 run to get...
On the surface, SU only defeated Seton Hall by 12 points in its first Big East Tourney game and allowed the Pirates to shoot over 50% from the field. But after trailing by double digits in the first half, the Orange played one of its best halves as a team i to rally past SHU and advance to the quarterfinals. Every starter contributed in some way inside the Garden...
Orange Nation finally gets what it was hoping for: a rematch with Georgetown, a “revenge” game as Brandon Triche called it. Syracuse held off Pittsburgh in the waning minutes of Thursday’s quarter-final matchup and defeated the Panthers 62-59 inside Madison Square Garden.
