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.
The most highly anticipated regular season game is next for the Syracuse Orange as the Duke Blue Devils invade the Carrier Dome on Saturday night.

Also, how well do you know your Duke trivia, what can the individual Orange players improve upon in the month of February, and how important is it that the ‘Cuse wins on Saturday?
A recap of Syracuse’s victory over Indiana in the Orange’s first ever Big Ten – ACC Challenge on Tuesday night in the Carrier Dome. Did you enjoy the infomercial for Syracuse basketball as much as Dan Dakich and Mike Tirico did bringing it to you? Also, why Syracuse is the best team in the country right now, our preferences for future out-of-conference opponents and how well do you recall the Orange’s participation in cross-conference “challenge” games?
After watching Jim Boeheim’s Syracuse Orange move to 7-0 with three straight wins against major conference opponents at the Maui Invitational, we ask if this team is better than we thought they were.

Join us for an hour full of Syracuse hoops.
Syracuse is off to a 2-0 start to their 2013-14 campaign with wins over Cornell and Fordham. After seeing this season’s iteration of the Orange, are they better or worse than you thought they’d be? Also, is Dajuan Coleman ready to make an impact, who will be the leading rebounder on this team, and who’s taking the last shot? And how about this… it’s quite possible that the Big East or even the American Athletic Conference will have more NCAA Tournament bids than Syracuse’s new conference, the ACC.
