Gregory Shamus

"Guys are going hard, guys are leaving it all out on the court, and you know you gotta just treat every night like it's your last game because, I mean, it could be your last game in the D-League. I mean you don't know that - you could get that call up." - Rick Jackson

The Warriors' unusual commitment to Rick Jackson: Why owning a D-League team can be so valuable - Golden State Of Mind

"I mean, every day you step out here just being in the D-League it's just motivating because there is a bigger goal," said Jackson. "I think once you enter the league there is no bigger goal because you're in the NBA so it's not like you're playing to get called up somewhere else. But here, I mean, you're playing to be in the league just like anybody. So guys are going hard, guys are leaving it all out on the court, and you know you gotta just treat every night like it's your last game because, I mean, it could be your last game in the D-League. I mean you don't know that - you could get that call up.

What we’ve learned about Syracuse after four games | The Juice Online

After four, generally impressive, victories by the Syracuse Orange, the one glaring weakness has clearly been three point shooting. It hasn’t been just bad, it’s been atrocious. As a team the Orange is shooting 26.6% from downtown, ranking 313th out of 347 Division 1 teams. No, that wasn’t a typo. At this point we know this unit will struggle from the outside.

Which team, Indiana or Duke, deserves to sit at the top of Mark Titus's Top 12 NCAA power rankings? - Grantland

I'm bunching Arizona and Syracuse together as a punishment, because neither team has played a legitimate opponent. Syracuse began the season with the aircraft carrier game against a decent San Diego State team, but that wasn't as significant of a test as it should've been because the stiff ocean wind allowed a bigger and stronger Syracuse squad to sit in their zone and force the Aztecs to jack up ill-advised 3-pointers all game (which they did en route to a 1-18 showing behind the line).

The 38-member U.S. team will also square off against Notre Dame on Jan. 26 as part of the event.

Meet Your New Neighbors: How Louisville Stacks Up Against the ACC | Atlantic Coast Convos

Having a successful football program wasn’t the only part of the equation, however. Louisville’s also displayed an impressive, impassioned amount of fan support, which certainly carried weight with the other "football schools" such as Clemson, Virginia Tech and Florida State.

Missed this from Thanksgiving but congrats to Syracuse's newest cheerleader...
