Syracuse guard Michael Gbinije excelling for Orange

SYRACUSE, N.Y.

Michael Gbinije Starting for SU Shouldn’t be a Surprise

The first thought through my mind when I saw Jon Rothstein’s tweet yesterday was surprise that it wasn’t already official. Of course Gbinije was going to be the starting point guard.

The 2014-15 Syracuse basketball team has seen a number of games due to poor late-game execution this season, leaving it squarely on the bubble with Selection Sunday just 39 days away.
