Syracuse Basketball

   After a dominant second half against Cornell, the Syracuse Orange look to build momentum off of their season-opening win when they face off against the Iona Gaels in the Carrier Dome, Tuesday night at 7. Syracuse was anchored by a strong defense in the opener, and star sophomore Tyus Battle was able to pour in 18 points to lead an inexperienced Orange team over overmatched Cornell.

Boeheim Bowl Goes to Dad as Syracuse Downs Cornell

Nov 11, 2017

On Friday night, Syracuse Head Coach Jim Boeheim patrolled the sidelines of the court that bears his name. He wasn’t the only one involved in the game that could make that claim though.

Boeheim had to coach against his son, Jimmy, as the latter suited up for Cornell to open the college basketball season in Central New York.

It was a defensive affair in the Carrier Dome as Syracuse (1-0, 0-0) pulled away from Cornell (0-1, 0-0), to win 77-45.

Syracuse to Host Cornell in Season Opener

Nov 9, 2017

Syracuse (0-0, 0-0) will open its season Friday night as they take on the Cornell Big Red (0-0, 0-0) in the Carrier Dome.

The Orange are coming off two convincing preseason victories. After defeating Southern New Hampshire 84-54 on November 1, Syracuse beat Southern Connecticut State on Monday 84-59, marking their second double-digit victory in less than a week.

Syracuse will compete in its second and final exhibition game of the preseason on Monday against the Owls of Southern Connecticut State University. 

The Orange enter the contest coming off a promising performance in their first exhibition matchup against Southern New Hampshire University, beating the Penmen 84-54 on November 1.

Syracuse men’s basketball goes into the upcoming season with games starting this week…and one thing is on everyone’s minds: How will Syracuse fare this year following their disappointing 2016-2017 season. The Orange went from the Final Four in 2016 as the number 10 seed, to not even making it past the second round in the NIT tournament last year.

In the last few years, inconsistency seems to be the recurring theme for the Orange, and once again Coach Jim Boeheim and the Orange will head into this season with something to prove.

Much in the same way Syracuse University never seems to close due to inclement weather, the owner of the Varsity can relate.  In fact, he says they never close, as well.  Until today... or at least part of the day.  After all, there's a basketball game tonight.

Syracuse Men's Basketball Coach Jim Boeheim has a national championship, nine Big East regular season championships and five Big East Tournament championships in his career at Syracuse. He is also a three-time gold medal winning Basketball Hall of Famer with over 1,000 career wins (regardless of what the NCAA says).

On Wednesday, Boeheim and the Syracuse Orange (18-13, 10-8) look for their first ever victory in the ACC tournament in Brooklyn, New York. The Miami Hurricanes (20-10, 10-8) stand in their way.

In their last regular season game as a unit, the Syracuse Orange (18-13, 10-8) played like the team that fans dreamt about before the season started.

The Orange defeated the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets (17-14, 8-10) 90-61 at the Carrier Dome on Saturday behind leading scorer Andrew White III's career best 40 points. The Nebraska transfer celebrated his senior night honors by missing just one of his nine shots from beyond the arc.

Coming off an emotional last-second victory over #10 Duke, the Syracuse Orange (17-12, 9-7) travel to Louisville to take on the #7 Cardinals (22-6, 10-5).

College basketball expert Joe Lunardi has Syracuse as a #10 seed in the NCAA tournament, meaning they are in no danger of missing the tournament at the moment. A big road victory on Sunday however would remove all doubt for Orange Nation.

Syracuse Downs Duke at the Buzzer

No. 10 Duke (22-6) took its seven-game win streak into the Carrier Dome and left it there. Syracuse forward Tyler Lydon pulled down the most important rebound of the night and found graduate transfer Andrew White who shoveled a pass to guard John Gillon outside of the three-point line, center court at the buzzer.
