GameThread: Syracuse vs. Miami

Mark Konezny-USA TODAY Sports Taking the talents to South Beach once again The Syracuse Orange men’s basketball team (7-4, 1-3) needs to break out of their conference play funk and are hoping that a trip to South Beach is the cure. However, the Miami Hurricanes (6-6, 2-5) never go down easy and are looking to avoid the basement of the ACC standings defending their home court. With the women winning the front end of the double header, it’s time to see what the men can do. Looking to catch up on all the news before tonight’s tip? We have you covered: Everything...

Syracuse vs. Miami: TNIAAM Predictions & Poll

Bob Donnan-USA TODAY Sports Which SU team shows up in this one? And which ‘Canes squad makes an appearance? The Syracuse Orange men’s basketball team is now entering a very crucial stretch in the schedule. From now through Feb. 9, SU will play seven games against bubble-type squads. If the Orange have any shot of making the NCAA Tournament this year, it’s pretty crucial they pick up at least three wins (if not four) in this portion of the schedule. The Miami Hurricanes are arguably the most winnable game in that group, so a win here is imperative. Before this...

Syracuse vs. Miami preview: Four things to watch

Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports Hopefully a loss isn’t one of them. The Syracuse Orange men’s basketball team is sort of in a tailspin right now. Since returning from another COVID-related pause, SU’s just 1-3, with defensive issues getting increasingly apparent with each game. Now 7-4 (1-3 in ACC play), the Orange are desperate for a win and need to beat the Miami Hurricanes to get back on track. Miami, for their own part, are just 6-6 (2-5) but also recently upset Louisville. Before the Orange and Hurricanes tip off at 7 p.m. ET on ACC Network on Tuesday, we...

Podcast: Syracuse vs. Miami preview

And of course, we recap some of Saturday’s disastrous effort. The Syracuse Orange men’s basketball team has had a rough couple games, and because we are who we are, a rehash of that disaster vs. Pitt is entirely necessary. There’s a pivot toward what’s next vs. Miami, however, even if it’s colored by some lingering pessimism. Some of the specific topics of this episode...

Syracuse track returned to action last weekend

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports The Orange distance squad opened the indoor season The Syracuse Orange track and field teams started their 2021 indoor season last weekend. The Orange sent a group of distance runners to the Virginia Tech Invitational as they returned to action for the first time since October. Amanda Vestri picked right up where she left off as she won the 5000m in a time of 16:09 well ahead of teammate Ellie Lawler who ran 18:05. Syracuse entered seven women in the 3000m and that group took places 2-8 led by Jordan Jacob’s 9:58. After Jacob it was Justus...

SU’s Priscilla Williams Named ACC Freshman of the Week

Rich Barnes-USA TODAY Sports The freshman shot 9-for-9 from the floor and 6-for-6 from three in the Orange’s 35-point win over Miami After a stellar performance on Sunday, Syracuse Orange women’s basketball player Priscilla Williams has been named the Atlantic Coast Conference Freshman of the Week. Williams went 9-9 from the field (6-6 from three) to lead all scorers with a career-high of 26 points in Sunday’s win over Miami.

Miami’s rebounding, shooting abilities create tough matchup for SU

Miami’s rebounding, shooting abilities create tough matchup for SU

Jasen Vinlove-USA TODAY Sports Look no further than the last game the ‘Canes played. If the Syracuse Orange men’s basketball team only had ONE problem, that would at least be palatable for fans. Poor shooting means more practice there. Poor selection means correction. Poor defense... well, we can dream of a correction there, I guess. The issue is that SU’s suffering from all of those shortcomings, plus a disadvantage on the boards created by having little usable depth inside. We’ve seen how the Orange have been exploited on the boards in recent games, helping...
Jim Boeheim’s right about SU’s defense, but is there any solution?

Jim Boeheim’s right about SU’s defense, but is there any solution?

Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports To zone, or not to zone The 2020-2021 Syracuse Orange men’s basketball season is hanging precariously in the balance in mid-January. While the Orange will look to stop a two-game slide when they return home to host the Miami Hurricanes there is growing concern about this roster’s ability to defend. That concern is led by the man in charge, Jim Boeheim who said this on Saturday. “Our defense was probably the worst I’ve seen it since I’ve been here,” Boeheim said. “Sixty-four points? Yeah, that’s a lot of points.” It is...
