Syracuse draws Wisconsin for ACC-Big Ten Challenge

Yup, national runner up Wisconsin will head to the Dome on December 2nd. No, Frank Kaminsky and Sam Dekker won’t be coming, but the team still has Nigel Hayes and Bronson Koenig, two key contributors to a Final Four team. But really what this game means is that the Syracuse non-conference schedule is once again a very formidable slate. After years of complaints, right or wrong...

Despite Losing Bryant/Battle, Syracuse is Still One of Best Recruiters in ACC

There’s been frustration around Syracuse that the last two big targets for hoops have spurned the Orange. Thomas Bryant is heading to Indiana, while yesterday Tyus Battle chose Michigan. While the ’16 Class still has work left to do for SU, the current ’15 Class proves why it’s far too early to worry about the Orange talent level. No doubt, the scholarship reductions will...

‘Cuse Hoops Looking to 2017 and Trevon Duval

The Syracuse University men’s basketball team is still working on locking down its top 2016 prospect, Tyus Battle, but that’s not stopping Jim Boeheim, Mike Hopkins, and the rest of the staff from keeping an eye on the future.

Tyus Battle Schedules Official Visit to Syracuse

It’s been a while since Syracuse basketball has had something to look forward to.

The climb could begin with Tyus Batte, who has scheduled his official visit to Syracuse. First...

Spurs Snubbed By Legendary Coach Jim Boeheim

Morrissette: Syracuse Basketball Didn’t Want Thomas Bryant After Release of Sanctions

Last June Jim Boeheim said that Syracuse’s 2015 class was “getting another” commit. That player was presumed to be New York center Thomas Bryant who two weeks ago committed to Indiana. Earlier this week the Post Standard published a story saying that Bryant did not come to Syracuse because he saw SU as a program in chaos. Clearly losing scholarships and players transferring...

When Critical Inquiry Is Unequally Applied: Duke Benefits From A National Double Standard

Now that the college basketball season is over, here’s a “hidden comparison” — no, not of team resumes (that’s before Selection Sunday), but team rosters. One team was led in every statistical category as a freshman, with three of its top four scorers in the same class. That team also boasted of nine McDonald’s All-Americans on the season-opening roster. Outside of one...

Tyus Battle’s Dad is Impressed with Boeheim’s Attention on His Son

After the transfer of a pair of players, the defection of Chris McCullough, and the loss of Thomas Bryant to Indiana, the mood surrounding Syracuse basketball had soured.

Is Syracuse Basketball Falling Apart?

Three weeks ago Syracuse was in a state of chaos. The pride and joy of the city, Syracuse basketball, had just been given major sanctions from the NCAA, and far too many people were thinking the sky was falling. It was all an overreaction then, and it’s still an overreaction now. Despite all of the things that have gone wrong from the day of the sanctions until now, there is still...

Report: Syracuse’s Chris McCullough Will Enter The NBA Draft

The 2014-15 season was a forgettable one for Syracuse basketball, as the Orange finished 18-13 and were banned from postseason play due to NCAA sanctions. Legendary gead coach Jim Boeheim also announced he’ll be relinquishing the reins of the program in three seasons.  Now, one of ‘Cuse’s projected top returners for next year is heading for the NBA Draft.

25 years ago, the best Sweet 16 of all time was pure madness

On the eve of the 2015 Sweet 16, there’s nothing wrong with reliving any high-quality Sweet 16 from the NCAA tournament’s glorious past. Yet, this just so happens to be the 25th anniversary of the 1990 Sweet 16. The 1997 Sweet 16 — with three overtime games and Arizona’s monumental upset of Kansas — could put forth an argument as the best ever. You could comb through...

Men’s Basketball Will Look Much Different As Boeheim’s Time Ticks Down

Jim Boeheim is taking the NCAA infractions very seriously, as he should. The Syracuse basketball program has been an image not only of Central New York, but college basketball across the country. It has a long history of success during the regular season, but often coming up a little short in the NCAA tournament. The program has entered a new chapter of its history with the infractions...
