Has Syracuse done enough to convince us that they're a tournament contender?

The Syracuse University Men's Basketball team prepares for its 5th Atlantic Coast Conference tournament with more than a few questions about how this season might play out.  While some players, coaches and fans believe the Orange's 19-13 record, and a winning 10-8 record in the tough ACC conference, are enough to ensure a bid to the NCAA tournament, that invitation is not engraved in stone just yet.

Feb 8, 2019

There is no doubt that it has been a roller coaster season for Jim Boeheim and the Syracuse Orange. The Orange (16-7, 7-3) will face off against the Boston College Eagles (11-10, 2-7) tomorrow at the Carrier Dome. The Orange defeated the Eagles on the road a little over a week ago with a score of 77-71. The Orange will look to repeat that outing in front of the home crowd.

Orange Top Panthers in Pittsburgh

Feb 2, 2019

The Syracuse Orange (16-6, 7-2 in the ACC) defeated the Pittsburgh Panthers (12-10, 2-7 in the ACC) by a score of 65-56 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

Following a nine points loss in the Carrier Dome in January, the Panthers were looking for a chance to redeem themselves, but Syracuse was ready to reclaim their victory on the road.

The Orange have now one back to back conference road games after a devastating loss to #10 Virginia Tech.

  It was a rough night for the Orange (14-5, 5-1 Atlantic Coast) in Blacksburg, Virginia with a 78-56 loss against No. 10 Virginia Tech (15-3, 4-2).

After a 21-point loss against No. 11 North Carolina, Virginia Tech was looking for some redemption on their home court — and that’s exactly what they got.

Virginia Tech is the third best three-point shooting team in the country. And that was a big part of the game. With its formidable offense, it became clear early in the game that Syracuse needed to step up its defense to stay in the game.

In the mid 1980s Tim Green was cheered for his highlight plays on the football field. Still a local legend, this past year Tim was diagnosed with ALS.
