Syracuse vs. Georgia Tech: TNIAAM predictions & poll

Syracuse vs. Georgia Tech: TNIAAM predictions & poll

Mark Konezny-USA TODAY Sports Does the losing streak continue? The Syracuse Orange men’s basketball team has had a rough start to the season, but the good news is there are still more games to play. If SU can collect some wins here in December, the ship may be righted, at least in terms of appearance. First up on the road back to respectability: a trip down to Atlanta’s McCamish Pavilion to take on the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets. Tech’s a feisty group this year, playing well on defense once again while also hitting shots at a pretty efficient clip. Not the best recipe for the...

Syracuse vs. Georgia Tech preview: Q&A with From the Rumble Seat

Adam Hagy-USA TODAY Sports Georgia Tech’s standing in the way of SU collecting its first ACC win of the season. Let’s get a look at the Syracuse Orange vs. Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets match-up from the GT perspective. Rob Pensa, Basketball Editor at From the Rumble Seat joined me to give us some insight into Syracuse’s 2nd ACC opponent of the 2019-20 season. With the postseason ban looming what is Georgia Tech using as motivation this season? The postseason ban is currently under appeal, meaning that as of today the team is not banned from any postseason play. For now, this is all...

Syracuse vs. Georgia Tech preview: 5 things to watch for

Mark Konezny-USA TODAY Sports Time to get that first ACC win. One quarter of the Syracuse Orange men’s basketball season is already in the books. And although it hasn’t been pretty thus far, we soldier on. On Saturday, SU faces the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets in the Orange’s fourth straight matchup against a P5 opponent. Considering how the last three have gone, there’s certainly cause for concern that this game could end in similar fashion. Even for a very young team, the Orange have under-performed this year. We knew there would be growing pains, but so far there has been a lot...

Syracuse football 2019 season report card: O-line

Mark Konezny-USA TODAY Sports The line had their issues, but there may be a light at the end of the tunnel... for next year. After a highly disappointing 5-7 season, there are probably a lot of you that would rather not look back at 2019 for the Syracuse Orange football team. But before we move forward into what we hope is a much better 2020, it’s worth taking stock of what’s occurred. Over this week and next, we’ll be going position by position recapping SU’s year to see what worked, what didn’t, and how that impacted the Orange’s success (or in many cases, a lack thereof)....

Syracuse WBB falls to Michigan in overtime, 84-76

Syracuse WBB falls to Michigan in overtime, 84-76

Photo by Kevin Light/ The Orange slide continues. Right from the jump you could tell this was going to be a physical, and very fun game to watch. Naz Hillmon, the reigning Big Ten player of the year and Syracuse Orange sophomore Emily Engstler was a matchup everyone wanted to see. Even though these two forwards were the two best players on the floor, the two teams had very different objectives early on. Syracuse started out on fire from beyond the arc in the first quarter, going 5-10 while Michigan didn’t even attempt one from beyond the arc. Teisha Hyman went 3-3 from long range and...
Some hiring ideas for Dino Babers’s staff this offseason

Some hiring ideas for Dino Babers’s staff this offseason

Rich Barnes-USA TODAY Sports Some of these are more informed guesses than others. The Syracuse Orange football team will be hiring at least one new coach this offseason following the dismissal of defensive coordinator Brian Ward in November. And if you believe what Dino Babers said on Saturday, there are at least a couple more moves in the works as well. We’ve made our final evaluations on the current Orange coaches, and who may or may not be retained this offseason. Now we take a look at who could be added — and maybe where. This isn’t based on inside information, as much as...
How can Syracuse improve the struggling offense?

How can Syracuse improve the struggling offense?

Mark Konezny-USA TODAY Sports It’s more than just making shots. It’s WHO is taking what shots As Dave pointed out so well yesterday the Syracuse Orange offense has been slowing down for a while now. The current three-game losing streak has brought the struggles to the forefront so where can the Orange go from here? Since there’s no trade or mid-season acquisition it’s up to Jim Boeheim and the coaching staff to figure out ways to utilize the roster to get more points on the board. Thanks to the statistics at Synergy Sports, we can dive into what is and what isn’t working for...

Rich Barnes-USA TODAY Sports Another tough group to figure out given the results were all over the map. After a highly disappointing 5-7 season, there are probably a lot of you that would rather not look back at 2019 for the Syracuse Orange football team. But before we move forward into what we hope is a much better 2020, it’s worth taking stock of what’s occurred.

Syracuse men’s lacrosse: Orange release 2020 schedule

Michael J. Okoniewski The Orange will play their final two home games at Cicero-North Syracuse High School as the Carrier Dome finishes renovations. A little bit earlier than expected, the Syracuse Orange released their 2020 men’s lacrosse schedule earlier on Wednesday. As has been the norm, most of the opponents are the same as last season with one exception. The Binghamton Bearcats return to the slate in early February, replacing the Navy Midshipmen game in mid-April. But that’s not the only change. With the ongoing renovations to the Carrier Dome, the Orange will play their first...
Syracuse basketball: Death by a thousand cuts

Syracuse basketball: Death by a thousand cuts

Mark Konezny-USA TODAY Sports The slow, steady decline of Syracuse basketball. In the midst of one of the worst starts in 50+ years of Syracuse basketball, let’s take a look back to the “good old days”, shall we? Don’t worry, we’re not even going all that far. The scene is February 12, 2014. CJ Fair, Tyler Ennis, Jerami Grant and company have just pulled off an improbable, come-from-behind, last second victory over Pittsburgh to remain undefeated and keep their #1 ranking in the country. Ennis is the hero, draining a near mid-court shot at the buzzer to move the Orange to an...

Video: Is this already a lost season for Syracuse men’s basketball?

Bobby Manning and the DO’s Josh Schafer discuss on a video edition of the Syracuse Basketball Podcast. The Syracuse Orange men’s basketball team lost its third straight game, a streak that pushed the Orange into the bottom of the ACC not only in wins, but in defensive rebounding percentage. Only Boston College and Miami rebound fewer opponent misses. Buddy Boeheim and Joe Girard III combined to shoot 5-for-34 from three over the losing streak, which could continue on the road against Georgia Tech and Georgetown this next week. Far from Syracuse’s only issues, it feels like the only...
Syracuse basketball: The end, or another bump in the road?

Syracuse basketball: The end, or another bump in the road?

Mark Konezny-USA TODAY Sports This isn’t THE conversation, I swear. Just A conversation. The Syracuse Orange men’s basketball team and Jim Boeheim have long attracted questions, criticism and skepticism. Whether it’s the zone, the city’s weather, Boeheim’s longevity, his lone championship or the diminishing returns of recent seasons, we’re all quite used to the concerns, both real and imagined about this program. These past five years or so have been particularly trying, as Syracuse battled through NCAA sanctions, some ugly basketball and difficult regular seasons that more...
