In our season finale episode, which has come much earlier than anticipated this year, we talk about Saturday’s loss to Duke, if Kaleb Joseph will ever be the answer at point guard, and we try our hand at some great Orange Trivia courtesy of the Professor, Brad Conner. Then, we name 5 positive things that came out of an otherwise disappointing Syracuse basketball season and predict where the program will be one year from now, on March 1, 2016.
With two regular season games in the books, both wins, we evaluate the Syracuse men’s basketball team roster and debate whether our halfcourt offense will be improved and if this is a great rebounding team. Then, we rank the eight Syracuse guards who have manned the point over the last 10 years. Also, Happy 70th birthday to Coach Boeheim. How many more years will he coach and after winning his 950th versus Hampton, how many more wins before he hangs it up?
This week we preview Syracuse’s first ever trip to Madison Square Garden as a member of the Atlantic Coast Conference as the Orange faces St. John’s in an out-of-conference game. We reminisce about the great ‘Cuse-Johnnie rivalry from the eighties. Does the fact that we aren’t in the same conference diminish the rivalry or is it the fact that the Orange has won every meeting since 2000? Also, which former Orange player would be a prime candidate to serve on Boeheim’s staff the next time a spot opens up? Join us for a solid hour of Orange basketball talk.
In our final episode of the season we take a look back at the Syracuse Orange’s 2012-13 campaign culminating in a run to the Final Four. Also, some great Orange trivia and a look ahead to Syracuse’s roster heading into next season. Who will back up Tyler Ennis at point guard? Trevor Cooney? Will Dajuan Coleman break out and is Jeremi Grant a lottery pick in next year’s NBA Draft?
