Syracuse basketball might have ended the 2018-19 season with a quick exit from the NCAA tournament, but exciting times are ahead thanks to both new and returning players.  Among them will be Glens Falls guard Joe Girard, a 6’1” high-scorer who will add shooting.  Another shooting guard, Brycen Goodine from Rhode Island will also add scoring; he’s a member of ESPN’s top 100 recruits for the coming year.  The Orange will also expect to get some minutes and production out of 6’10” John Bol Ajak from Pennsylvania at center and 6’7” forward Quincy Guerrier from Canada at forward.  The most recen

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.

The NCAA Tournament is a time of excitement, with often times dreams becoming reality, and memories that last a lfietime.This week on The Best of WAER Sports Podcast, Connor Federico takes a look at one of those memories that Virginia and headcoach Tony Bennett would like to forget.

It’s tough to put a 26-point loss in the rear-view mirror, especially one where your team was winning at halftime. That is exactly what the Orange (19-11,10-7) have to do this Saturday against the Clemson Tigers (18-12, 8,9) in both teams’ regular season finales.

The Orange has already taken down the Tigers this season. Forward Elijah Hughes led Syracuse with 14 points in the team’s 61-53 win over Clemson in the Carrier Dome. ‘Cuse followed up that January 9th win by losing to Georgia Tech three days later.

With only three games remaining in the regular season, the Syracuse Orange (18-10, 9-6) will take on the Wake Forest Demon Deacons (11-16, 4-11) Saturday afternoon in North Carolina. A difficult end of the stretch schedule, had led to a couple tough losses in back to back conferencegames against ranked teams, #1 Duke and #5 UNC. Despite playing these two teams well and putting up a fight, a loss is still a loss at the end of the day. Fortunately, the Orange are matchedup against a weak Wake Forest team at just the right time.

 Three days after losing to No. 1 Duke, Syracuse (18-10, 9-6) fell to another ACC blue-blood, losing to No. 5 UNC-Chapel Hill (23-5, 13-2) 93-85 in the Dean Smith Center.
 

After a prolific first half start, Syracuse could not keep pace with the Tar Heels in the final 20 minutes. The Orange took a three point lead into the locker room at halftime, but a 50 point second half outburst from North Carolina proved to be too much.

FSU Post Game Article

 

For an Orange team that has struggled to get AP votes all season (they received just three in the most recent AP Poll), this game was a big one. Syracuse welcomed #22 Florida State to the Carrier Dome in the 11th matchup between to the two schools, and it did not go well. This was one of the strangest games the men’s basketball team has played this year. It felt as if the game was divided in three: FSU dominating the first 15 minutes, Syracuse dominating the next 15 minutes, and then FSU, once again, dominating the last ten minutes.
