This week on The Best of WAER Sports Podcast, it's the story of transformation for one Syracuse University  Men's Lacrosse Player. Sergio Salcido came to SU with visions of breaking onto the scene and immediately making a name for himself.  But after a torn ACL and no scholarship Salcido's future was looking bleak.

Fast Forward to today and the midfielder is one of the Orange's most  electrifying players. WAER's Tyler Aki tells us how Salcido went from a walk-on to an All-American.

Next year’s Syracuse men’s basketball team now knows the details of their first marquee matchup of the season. The Orange will take on the Kansas Jayhawks in early December to conclude the third annual Hoophall Miami Invitational.

Syracuse leads the all-time series 3-2, but Kansas is a perennial national title contender and one of the most prestigious programs in college basketball history. The Jayhawks haven’t missed the NCAA tournament since 1989, claiming either a one or two seed in the big dance every year since 2000.

Timing is a funny thing in sports. Opportunities sometimes take forever to present themselves and other times they seem to appear out of nowhere.

This week on The Best of WAER Sports Podcast, Maura Sheridan tells us the story of Syracuse Lacrosse Captain Paolo Ciferri and the journey he's taken to this point.

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.

This week on The Best of WAER Sports Podcast we take the time to celebrate. First we hear from WAER's Jake Marsh and remember some of the signature wins over the coaching career of Jim Boeheim. 

In the second half, we remember the life of former Syracuse University player Fab Melo.  Drew Carter gives us an inside look at the young Brazilian who was gone too soon.

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.

This week on The Best of WAER Sports Podcast, we have stories highlighting both the player and fan experience. First we will hear from WAER's Connor Morrisette as he introduces us to an SU Superfan. 

After that Paul Mancano gives us some insight into the past of Freshman Taurean Thompson and how he found his way to Syracuse University.

The Syracuse Orange (16-12, 8-7) were in a familiar position in the last minute of Sunday's sellout game in Atlanta. Unfortunately for coach Boeheim and the Orange, now just 2-7 on the road this year, the 71-65 loss was a familiar sight as well.

On the latest edition of The Best of WAER Sports Podcast, we highlight two seniors responsible for the turn around of Syracuse University Women's Basketball. After that we check in with Lacrosse and get the inside scoop on one of the newest additions to John Desko's squad.

This week on The Best of WAER Sports Podcast you'll hear about the how Big East has remained consistently a top basketball conference despite a changing landscape. Also this week we highlight an SU Basketball player who doesn't play big minutes, but whose story could have a huge impact.
