The Syracuse Orange (18-8 overall, 8-5 ACC) head to Kentucky on Wednesday to face the Louisville Cardinals (19-6, 8-4). This game is marred by the fact that the Cardinals will not be eligible for the NCAA tournament after the school decided to self-impose a ban on the team (sound familiar anyone?).

The Syracuse Orange (13-8 overall, 3-5 ACC) hope to get back on track at home against the Notre Dame Fighting Irish (14-5 overall, 5-2 ACC). The Orange are coming off of a close loss to Virginia on the road, after gaining momentum with road wins at Wake Forest and Duke.


  Syracuse Basketball renews its rivalry against former Big East foe Georgetown tomorrow in its first matchup since SU’s move to the ACC. But for the 1st time since 1974, fans will not see the iconic, scowling figure of Coach Jim Boeheim on the sideline against their biggest rival.

  Syracuse University's appeal of the sanctions placed on the basketball program by the NCAA has resulted in a reduction of the number of scholarships lost and a drop in the fine being charged the school.  The infractions committee ruled on SU's appeal by giving back one scholarship-per-year.  The original penalty included the loss of 3 scholarships in each of the next 4 years for a total of 12.  That has been changed to 2 awards per year for a total of 8.  

Families in Syracuse’s Outer Comstock neighborhood are celebrating major improvements to Comfort Tyler park thanks in part to a long-time neighbor whose offices are across the street near Manley Field House.  The Jim and Juli Boeheim Foundation’s Courts4kids program provided funding for a pair of basketball courts that complement a series of other renovations.  

  It’s the seventh such court upgrade at parks throughout the city.  Coach Jim Boeheim says it’s just their way of giving back to a community that’s rallied behind SU’s basketball program.
