Good Ol’ Syracuse-UConn Rivalry Spreads to Recruit Alterique Gilbert

Gilbert retweeted both posts, and is a 6’1″ point guard from Georgia who is rated at #44 nationally by ESPN.com. Interestingly, this was just two days after...

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...

National Title Game Impact: The Legacies of Bo Ryan and Krzyzewski Both Kind of At Play

The fact that one game in a single-elimination tournament can define legacies is slightly strange, but it’s understandable. In a sport where many coaches average over 20 wins a season and some of them enjoy rather lengthy runs in the NCAA Tournament, there has to be a way to separate the good coaches from the really great. While I fall more in favor of using national titles to...

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...

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...

Jim Boeheim's daughter heckled at high school playoff game

It isn't always easy being the child of a sports figure. Sometimes it can get ugly. And there are times the child gets to shut the critics up.
