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?
Just 24 hours after the final buzzer sounded in Syracuse’s loss to Dayton, Jim Sinicropi, Dave Barnick, Matt Verkey and Brad Conner are in-studio to talk about the disappointment as we try to make sense of the Orange’s early exit and look ahead to next season. Also, some college basketball trivia, a rant on the “classy” Coach K, memories of C.J. Fair, and was this a successful season?
To the 30,000+ viewers/listeners who tuned in live, watched on YouTube or downloaded our show on iTunes this season, thank you! We’ll see you again in October!
All those Orange fans who were hoping Syracuse would drop a game before the postseason got their wish on Wednesday night. How bad a loss was the overtime defeat at the hands of Boston College? What does this basketball team need to get in order ahead of their visit to face Duke at Cameron Indoor on Saturday. All this and some great Syracuse basketball trivia on the Upstate Orange Podcast.
After Tyler Ennis hit a miraculous buzzer-beater to lift Syracuse to 24-0, we compare the super-frosh to Pearl Washington, another Orange freshman phenom with a legendary last second heave. Also, C.J. Fair hits two of the most clutch jumpers you’ll ever see and Syracuse survives one of the biggest hurdles in the gauntlet that is their home stretch in the regular season.
