Syracuse Eager for Win at Duke, Season Turnaround in 2015-16

No postseason? No problem. March without Syracuse basketball is only a minor setback ramping up for something big next year. If anything, a postseason ban has motivated this team to gear up for take off, and it has started early. Syracuse beat two ranked teams in a span of five days, including one against a team in the Top 10 in Notre Dame, and on the road. Both tasks are impressive...

Rakeem Christmas leads Syracuse in exercise of futility

You remember the scene at the end of Pulp Fiction when Jules is trying to make sense of his favorite Bible verse, Ezekiel 25:17? He’s trying to figure out who in society represents the various figures in the passage: the righteous man, the evil man, the shepherd, the weak. At first, he says Ringo is the evil man, he is the righteous man, and his gun is the shepherd. Ultimately...

A Solid All-Around Performance Allows Orange to Pick-Up Big Win Over ND

Syracuse will always play in close games, no matter the opponent or the situation.  It is a characteristic that has defined this program for years and Tuesday’s trip to South Bend perfectly encompassed this trait.  On Tuesday the close game ended in Syracuse’s favor as they beat No. 9 Notre Dame on the road, 65-60. The Orange were able to hold one of the nation’s best offenses...

Who Will Play Down Low Next Year?

On March 7 Rakeem Christmas will play his last game as a member of the Syracuse Orange. This season we’ve all gotten used to Christmas being the only producer in the front court (and at times the whole team for that matter), but luckily there’s more talent coming in and coming back to the squad to take Christmas’s place. Returning: Chris McCullough and Dajuan Coleman   Chris...

Syracuse Basketball banned from post-season play

Syracuse University’s men’s basketball team will not see any post-season match ups. But, it’s not a sanction coming down from the NCAA. The university itself has decided to pull the team from any ACC, NCAA, or NIT appearances this year in light of an ongoing NCAA investigation regarding possible athletic department violations that Syracuse reported in 2007. School officials...

Courageous city responds heroically to tragedy

Enough of the sarcasm. This is embarrassing beyond belief.Syracuse basketball fans are trying to rally support for a scandalized program by drawing upon memories of the Boston Marathon bombings. Seriously, where do you start here? With the rule-breaking itself? With the self-righteous claims that these infractions happened "long ago," and thus are not relevant? And now this notion...

Syracuse Basketball: Tough loss to take

It took me a whole day to be able to get down and write this article because Tuesday’s game against Michigan was one of the most frustrating games I have watched as a Syracuse basketball fan. The part that bothers me the most is that they didn’t play that poorly, and they could have easily still won this game, but the Cuse ended up falling to the Wolverines 68-65. There were...

Syracuse Basketball: Christmas is here early

As I anticipated, Syracuse men’s basketball took care of business on Sunday, November 16, 2014 as they disposed of Hampton 65-47 at the Carrier Dome. Christmas has shined in the first two games for the Orange. This game was a bit closer than the first, but there were quite a few bright spots that make me even more excited for Thursday’s matchup with California. Rakeem Christmas...
