Doug Marrone has decided to establish permanent captains for the final three weeks of the season. You have to wonder what took so long? Syracuse had been using a rotating system, where the four Orange captains were voted on every week depending on leadership shown in practice. But for SU’s stretch run, it’s going to be Ryan Nassib, Justin Pugh, Siriki Diabate, and Shamarko Thomas...

He redshirted last season because of SU’s depth in the back court. An October tonsillectomy knocked him out of 14 practices...

“When I was on their campus, I felt...
Just when it seemed Syracuse was over the hump, the Orange self-destructed again and rejoined a dubious Big East crowd that also includes South Florida, Connecticut, Pitt and Temple.
With the season winding down, dreams of the postseason are getting oh-so-dim for these programs.
While Rutgers, Louisville and Cincinnati orchestrate memorable seasons in the ever-changing Big East...
Chris McCullough made an early decision on Monday by verbally committing to Jim Boeheim and Syracuse.
