Louisville's Terry Rozier thought he had two easy points on his hands during a fast break in the first half Wednesday night, but he didn't expect one thing. He didn't think Syracuse's Michael Gbinije was going to fly in behind him out of nowhere and reject his shot with such authority. Well done Mike. Well done. Read more »

Syracuse University squeaked out a win last night against Virginia Tech when forward Michael Gbinije hit a nasty turnaround layup with .1 second left on the clock to put the Orange up 72-0. It’s not how they drew up the play (Christmas was supposed to get the ball), but who cares when the ball goes in the bucket?
No one was more excited for the basket than the Cuse fans who...

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. A loss to lowly Virginia Tech at the Carrier Dome could have been disastrous to SU’s tournament hopes, but instead, the Orange flipped the script on the Hokies tonight.
With 6:33 left in the game...

There were many questions at the start of the season for Syracuse basketball. Could Kaleb Joseph follow in the footsteps of Tyler Ennis and control the top of the key? Would fellow freshman Chris McCullough live up to his high potential and become a star in his first year? How about Trevor Cooney’s issues with consistency? Some of these questions have been answered while others...
While you were probably watching the NFL, Michael Gbinije was cleaning up a miss with a big-time put back dunk as Syracuse rolled over Long Beach on Sunday. Gbinije finished the game with 24 points on 10/13 shooting and added 8 assists and 6 boards.
This is Michael Gbinije’s favorite way to clean up the glass for @CuseMBB. #MustSeeACC http://t.co/ihfLD7C1GE

Kennesaw State? Check. Hampton, you’re up next.
Two days after demolishing an undersized Kennesaw State team, the Orange will be back on its home court playing a team with better guards than the Fighting Owls. The Pirates feature two guards listed at 6-feet-6 and 6-feet-7 that combined for 26 points in the team’s loss against Iowa.
This matchup will be particularly interesting...

Michael Gbinije must be destined to play in the Atlantic Coast Conference. The Richmond, VA native was a top 30 recruit in the class of 2011. He joined the Duke Blue Devils on the same day current New Orleans Pelican Austin Rivers did. His teammates included Mason Plumlee and Seth Curry. Three players from that Duke team are now in the NBA. However, the high...
