Syracuse Runs Out of Gas at North Carolina

Right now, you have to feel a little bit badly for Rakeem Christmas and Trevor Cooney. I mean, how can you not?

Syracuse’s Offense Stalls, Orange Loses to Tigers

Sometimes in sports records mean nothing and today in Clemson was just one of those days.  Syracuse was undefeated in conference play as they took on the 1-3 Clemson Tigers.  Today, Syracuse just didn’t have it and the Tigers came to play.

Non-Conference Report Card for Syracuse’s Starting Five

Trevor Cooney (35.7 Minutes Per Game): B The season has been pretty simple so far: when Cooney plays well, SU has won. When Cooney disappoints, SU has lost. He is averaging 13.1 points per game on 41 percent shooting, second best on the team.  But, his value goes far beyond the numbers.  Cooney has been flexible enough to be a reliable shooter, a primary ball handler, and a wizard...

Three Biggest Keys to Syracuse’s Success in the ACC Season

How Important is Cooney’s Emergence for Syracuse?

The Orange has been atrocious from beyond the 3-point arc this year. Hitting just 26.6 percent of all threes, Syracuse ranks 333rd out of 345 Division I basketball schools. After an extremely slow start, Trevor Cooney has hit 50 percent of his 3-point attempts over the last three games. Coincidentally, the game against Louisiana Tech, Villanova and Colgate were three of the best...

Guard Trevor Cooney a key cog for No. 2 Syracuse

After two years of waiting his turn, Syracuse guard Trevor Cooney has shot to the top on coach Jim Boeheim's list of key players. Entering Atlantic Coast Conference play, Cooney was making a solid 50 percent of his 3-point shots and has been a key for the No. 2 Orange. Cooney has cooled off a bit in ACCC games as opponents have focused more on him. Yet he's still making 42 percent...

Video: Syracuse’s Trevor Cooney Slams 3 Breakaway Dunks In 2 Minutes vs. Boston College

Syracuse fans would argue that sophomore guard Trevor Cooney could win a 3-point shooting contest against the best the nation’s got to offer. After tonight, they may want to enter him in a dunk contest as well. Cooney threw down three dunks in a two-minute span on the road in the first half against Boston College. The 2-3 zone of the Orange forced the Eagles into 10 turnovers before...

Video: Indiana's Austin Etherington ejected after hard foul vs 'Cuse

We’re used to seeing ejections every Saturday as a result of the new “targeting rule” in college football, but they’re still pretty rare in college basketball. In tonight’s ACC-Big Ten Challenge opener between Syracuse and Indiana, the referees threw out Hoosiers forward Austin Etherington after a very hard foul (ruled a Flagrant-2) on the Orange’s Trevor Cooney. Here’s...
