Syracuse pledge Chris McCullough will remain in the Class of 2014 and won’t reclassify to 2013, he told SNY.tv Friday in an exclusive interview. "I’m staying Class of 2014," the 6-foot-10 McCullough said. "I had a meeting with my family and my coaches and that’s the best thing for me." It's good news for Syracuse fans hopeful for a Dakari Johnson commitment.
Over the next few months, experts will break down MCW’s game before he’s lottery bound. Jay Bilas has already named him the country’s best point guard. He’s smart, athletic and has superior vision. You’ll hear words like "long" and "rangy" to describe him, specifically on the defensive end. But there’s one thing that shouldn’t be overlooked: Michael Carter-Williams is tall.
Syracuse’s rebounding has been overshadowed in a year where the team ranks in the top five nationally in points per game, steals per game and blocks per game. But the Orange has quietly emerged as one of the nation’s best rebounding teams. So far, it has outrebounded its opponents by an average of 10 per game, the 14th best margin in the country.

Dana O'Neil previews Saturday's Syracuse-Temple matchup.
The point guard has started 10 of 11 games for SU, averaging 2.8 assists per game while providing calmness and leadership as a freshman. Though her stats aren’t eye-popping and her style of play isn’t flashy, Fondren plays steady basketball and doesn’t make many glaring mistakes. She’ll look to continue her consistent play Friday night, as Syracuse (10-1) squares off against Washington State (3-6) at the Carrier Dome at 7 p.m.
Deon Goggins is the poster child for the success the current Orange staff has had in acquiring roster needs from the junior-college ranks. A "three for two" player when he arrived in 2010, Goggins entered the lineup last season and has been a solid, productive defensive tackle. He will enter his final game as SU’s leading tackler (51) among down linemen, among them 7.5 for a loss and one sack. His departure will be felt, but despite it the Orange could be stronger – and will certainly be bigger – a t this position than it has been in years. Here is why:
"I’m cool with all of them," Christmas said. "Rahlir told me this summer, ‘Get ready for this game.’ We’ll see what happens."
Since I spend a lot of days in Gotham for my "day job" (I'm a storyboard artist for "Beware The Batman", coming in 2013 on Cartoon Network. *Cheap plug*) I couldn't resist drawing Otto as the Caped Crusader!
