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...

But, the short break stunted any momentum the Orange had built.  After scoring 43 points on 63 percent shooting in the first...

Orange Needs To Learn To Close Out Games

Yes, the Orange lost to Villanova, 82-77, in overtime. Yes, the referees didn’t help its cause. But, Syracuse also played its best game of the year, held a 15-point lead in the second half and a 5-point lead with 17 seconds to play. This is a game the Orange has to win. Just like last week, the game slipped away from the Orange, even though it was fully in control of the game all...

Syracuse basketball coach Jim Boeheim joins Twitter

Syracuse basketball head coach Jim Boeheim has long claimed that he’s quite inept when it comes to technology. Apparently that all changed Friday, when he officially joined Twitter. He’s been making the rounds the past week to promote his new book “Bleeding Orange”, so the timing makes sense. Still, it feels a bit like hell has frozen over. Seems like yesterday I got a...
