Could Jordan Tucker be Syracuse’s Next Great Wing?

Syracuse has had a lot of tremendous wing players under Jim Boeheim, including Billy Owens and Carmelo Anthony.

Orange Anxiety: The Acute Need For Syracuse To Produce

One of the central emergent themes in this college basketball season — one which will continue to merit attention in the coming weeks — is that a lot of big-name programs are in trouble relative to making the NCAA tournament.

Checking in on ’16 Hoops Commit Matthew Moyer

We’re still not sure if the Syracuse basketball recruiting class of 2015 is complete yet, but it’s never too early to check in on the class of 2016, is it? Jim Boeheim already has one player ready to join the Orange in that class: Matthew Moyer, a 6-foot-8 forward from Columbus, Ohio, who spurned his […]

Jim Boeheim gets CRANKIER and CRANKIER every season

Syracuse Coach Jim Boeheim is a lot like myself- he looks for things to complain about. We find fault with life just for the sake of having something to complain about. In the run-up to last year’s draft, Boeheim made some remarks about his players’ NBA Draft stock that rubbed certain people the wrong way. Jim Boeheim advocating that his own players (Tyler Ennis and Jerami Grant...

Chris McCullough’s Injury Drastically Changes Thomas Bryant Situation

A few weeks ago the Fizz took a look at what it would take scholarship wise for the Orange to land highly touted big man Thomas Bryant. The issue is that if everyone who is set to receive a basketball scholarship next season does so, Bryant will not be able to join the team because then the Orange will be over the scholarship limit. A Bryant commitment would put SU at 14 scholarships...

Syracuse Knocks off Wake Forest: This is When the Games Get Tougher

Four ACC games, three nail biters. The game took overtime, but Syracuse survived an 86-83 win against Wake Forest on Tuesday night.

Syracuse's postseason hopes rest on finding more offensive production

ATLANTA -- There was a second losing locker room, at least in tone, buried beneath a back staircase and practice gym at McCamish Pavilion on Wednesday night. Near the bottom of the stairs stood Jim Boeheim, the head coach of the Syracuse Orange who had minutes earlier went no-holds-barred in his news conference after his team scraped out a 46-45 win against host Georgia Tech, looking...

What Needs To Happen For Thomas Bryant To Come To SU?

Something needs to give if five-star center Thomas Bryant chooses Syracuse this spring. Jim Boeheim only has 13 basketball scholarships at his disposal every season. This year only ten players are on full scholarships, which means SU’s walk-ons are getting some money as well. If Bryant joins the program next year, the Orange would not have enough scholarships for every player that...

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...

Frustrated. That is the one word I can use to describe how I feel right now after Syracuse dropped their second straight game Saturday night, 69-57 at home to St. John’s. The loss snapped the Orange’s 55 game home non-conference winning streak. This is not the typical Syracuse team that the fans and even Coach Jim Boeheim are used to and I do have a lot of faith in this team...
