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.
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?
Join Jim Sinicropi, Matt Verkey and Brad Conner as they get ready for another season of Syracuse Orange basketball. Will the freshmen and emerging sophomores fill the void left by the exit of Tyler Ennis, C.J. Fair, and Jeremi Grant? Can Rakeem Christmas step up and lead this team in his senior season? Can Trevor Cooney hit the rim consistently on a three point shot? These questions answered, along with some great Orange trivia on the season premiere of the Upstate Orange Podcast on FingerLakes1.TV.
