This week we focus on Syracuse’s 1996 Final Four team during Conner’s Corner Trivia and we talk about whether or not Syracuse will reach 20 wins before the ACC Tournament.
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.
On Sunday night’s live edition of the Upstate Orange Podcast we recap Syracuse’s two games at Madison Square Garden and give bright spots and low points from the loss to California and the win over Iowa. Some great Orange Trivia and our first ever Syracuse fantasy draft, and we question if this team might ultimately end up in the NIT.
Orange legend #44 John Wallace calls in to talk about the current Syracuse team, the demise of the Big East, memories of playing with Lawrence Moten, and his thoughts on when he might be honored with his jersey being raised to the Dome rafters.
Also, is this Syracuse team soft? Why can’t C.J. Fair get more shots? Some Carrier Dome attendance trivia and much more.
