Then they played Oklahoma State.

The Cowboys (6-0) cruised to an 86-72 blowout win over the Orange, dictating a tempo Syracuse couldn’t match. Syracuse was outscored 35-16 on fastbreak points, and the rebounding issues that haunted Jim Boeheim’s squad last year flared up Wednesday night, with Oklahoma State winning the second chance points battle decidedly, 16-5.

The Syracuse Men’s Basketball team is on a three-game win streak. Wednesday night, the Orange defeat Cornell in the Battle of the Boeheim’s Three. This weekend, Bucknell comes to the Dome. The Bisons are currently 2-3 with their most recent loss coming in a game against Penn State.

Nov 13, 2019

In the team's first out of conference test of the young season, Syracuse picked up its first victory of the year against Colgate, 70-54. 

Reaching the 70-point plateau was a welcome sight to Orange fans who watched the team struggle in the season opener against Virginia, mustering just 34 points. 

After a tight first half, the Orange blew the game open in the second frame, opening the half on a 24-9 run.

Buddy Boeheim and Elijah Hughes each knocked down three shots from beyond the arc, scoring 17 and 14 respectively to lead the Orange.

Syracuse Beats Wake Forest on the Road

Mar 2, 2019

Syracuse Men’s Basketball snapped a two-game losing streak against Wake Forest. The Orange beat the Demon Deacons 79-54 in a key ACC matchup. Syracuse is now 19-10 on the season and 10-6 in conference play with two games left in the season.

  With just six games remaining in regular season play, the Syracuse Orange (17-8, 8-4) will be in search of a resume-building win when they host the 18th ranked Louisville Cardinals (18-8, 9-4) on Wednesday night.

By the time tip off arrives, Syracuse will have been sitting idle for a full week since their last game, a 73-58 loss at NC State. Syracuse’s streaky offense was held to just 35% from the field in Raleigh and went a dismal 11 of 22 from the free throw line.

Students took a break from studying for finals on Saturday to cheer on Syracuse Men’s Orange Basketball (7-2) as it took on on former rival the Georgetown Hoyas (7-2). The Orange continues its streak after overcoming a 13-point deficit going into the second half and finishing the game with a narrow 72-71 win.

Etan Thomas to Discuss Activism in Athletics and His New Book at SU

Feb 26, 2018
Syracuse University Athletics

SU alum and former NBA player Etan Thomas will give a talk at Syracuse University tonight about athletes' role as activists and their ability to speak out against societal issues like race relations, police brutality, and sexual assault. 

In his recent book, “We Matter: Athletes and Activism,”  Thomas describes recent and past activism in athletics and its perception by the public and the media, informed by both experience and over 50 interviews with notable athletes and figures.  Thomas explains his support for activism by athletes and its history and future.

The Syracuse Orange (17-9, 6-7) did not help their chances of making the NCAA Tournament on Wednesday night, falling 74-70 to the NC State Wolfpack (17-9, 7-6) in the Carrier Dome. 

In last year's contest, Syracuse's John Gillon poured in a historic 43 points including a buzzer-beater at the end of regulation, setting Syracuse up for a 100-93 overtime victory at the PNC Arena. This year's result was not as uplifting.
