C.J. FAIR RUMORS & GOSSIP
(Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports)
Congratulations to our 2012/13 College Dunk of the Year Tournament Champion, Syracuse's C.J. Fair. Fair's dunk garnered 55% of the votes in the finals, edging out Eastern Kentucky's Marcus Lewis.
Syracuse Orange fans were elated Wednesday to hear that forward C.J. Fair would return for his senior season. A day earlier, multiple reports saying he was going pro/staying/still undecided left us all dazed and confused.
Turns out, we had good reason to be confused since C.J. was even more confused than we were.
"On Sunday, I had decided to stay one more year," Fair...
After a week of speculation about whether or not SU forward C.J. Fair would declare for the draft or not, the announcement has been released, making it official. Fair will stay for his senior season on the basketball team.
Syracuse Athletics sent out this tweet today:

But it was this tweet...
Sanity prevailed in C.J. Fair’s decision on whether to jump to the NBA.
“After talking it over with my family and my coaches, I decided another year at Syracuse was best for me. I’m excited about working hard with my teammates to put together another great season and graduating has also been a goal of mine.”
First off, this gives the Orange a major boost going...
Syracuse's C.J. Fair is returning for his senior season.
The Orange's leading scorer and rebounder last season announced his decision Wednesday, saying another year of college basketball and graduating are in his best interests.
The return of Fair, who averaged 14.5 points and 6.9 rebounds last season, gives coach Jim Boeheim a nice boost as Syracuse transitions to the...

My gut was that C.J Fair decided to return to Syracuse after meeting with his family over the weekend. Now Mike Waters of the Post-Standard is reporting that’s exactly what happened.
“The source said that as recently as last week Fair was ready to give up his final year of eligibility and enter the NBA Draft. However, after visiting with his family in Baltimore, Md., over the...
Typo, or leak?
NBA.com’s David Aldridge wrote an article yesterday about the small forwards of the 2013 class, claiming that Syracuse star C.J. Fair had already declared for the NBA Draft. While many believe Fair will in fact go pro, he hasn’t made any decision public, though he is scheduled to have a press conference this week to update the school and fans on...
C.J. Fair did not declare for the NBA Draft Tuesday, but that doesn’t mean he’s coming back. Yesterday was the NCAA’s deadline, and Fair still has not announced his pro plans. As long as he doesn’t sign with an agent, he has until April 28th to return to Syracuse.
So over the next 11 days Fair will gather information from league people about his prospects, and where he is...

C.J. Fair was the goat. He’d taken an ill-advised shot with Syracuse clinging to a two-point lead and then fouled Otto Porter to give up the game-tying free throws. Syracuse had coughed up a 12-point lead down the stretch, and Fair’s poor decision making was the proverbial straw the broke the camel’s back. Surely Georgetown would dominated the Orange in OT.
But Fair had a short...
