What Went Wrong For Syracuse Against ‘Nova? The Numbers Tell All

At halftime on Saturday afternoon, everything seemed right in Philly.  Up and down the lineup, the Orange was getting contributions, and the team looked like it had finally taken a step forward towards fixing the kinks that had plagued the offense so far.

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...

Sometimes we have to be realistic.   The 2011-12 team had all of the tools to win a national championship, even though Fab Melo missed the NCAA tournament. Despite losing four of its last five regular season games, the 2012-13 team went to the Final Four. Twenty five straight games worked for Syracuse last year, but it all went downhill from there and SU was bounced in the Round...

Syracuse’s Dajuan Coleman Closing in on Return, But is it Worth the Risk?

In the case of injured junior forward Dajuan Coleman, hearing no news is good news.  According to the coaching staff, Coleman is right on schedule with his rehabbing, which means he could see game action within the next two to three weeks.

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.
