Watch Syracuse stun No. 10 Duke with a deep three at the buzzer

It was, and the Orange got that win in the most dramatic fashion possible.

Syracuse guard John Gillon banks in buzzer-beating three to sink No. 10 Duke

It took John Gillon some time to get it going at Syracuse, but the point guard is finally looking like the guy I thought the Orange were getting — and I thought they were getting — when he transferred from Colorado State. The senior went off for 43 points and nine assists on NC State earlier this month, and had 26 points and six assists against No. 10 Duke on Wednesday night...

Tonight Isn’t The Be-All End-All For Syracuse’s Season

The last time Mike Krzyzewski lost a basketball game, Syracuse was out of the NCAA Tournament picture after a loss to Boston College, Barack Obama was President of the United States and the Atlanta Falcons were still laughing at the Golden State Warriors and Cleveland Indians for blowing insurmountable championship leads.

Syracuse fan calls Josh Pastner to complain about ‘air-ball’ chant, gets told to shove it

Here We Are: Syracuse Has to Beat Duke

The Orange have long been known as Cardiac Cuse because they never seem to play in blowouts. Winning or losing, no matter the margin, the game always seems to end up as a nail-biter (look no further than Sunday’s crushing loss to Georgia Tech).

Syracuse's absurd path to an NCAA tournament bid

Syracuse entered the 2016-17 season ranked 19th in the preseason AP poll, but it did not take long for the Orange to fall out of the rankings entirely. By Week 5 (December 5th), Syracuse no longer boasted a number next to its name and by Week 7 it wasn't even receiving votes.The reason for this slide out of national relevance?
