All Kris Joseph Does Is Win, Win, Win No Matter What

Derrick Coleman, Stevie Thompson and Sherman Douglas.

No three players have won more basketball games while wearing a Syracuse uniform than this trio, who can each boast to taking part in 113 victories while at SU. Coleman and Thompson from 1986-87 through the 1989-90 and Douglas from 1985-86 to 1988-89.

Mike Waters points out today that Kris Joseph is on the verge of eclipsing all of them.

Syracuse senior Kris Joseph is about to join and then, presumably, pass some elite company. Joseph is on the verge of becoming the winningest player in Syracuse history.

Joseph has been a part of 111 wins in his Syracuse career.

What it speaks to, more than just how successful and talented Joseph is, is how special this recent upswing in Syracuse basketball history has been.

There's no doubt that the era of Derrick Coleman, the mid-to-late-80's and early 90's are considered the greatest era in SU history. The 1996 Final Four and the 2003 National Title are quick blips of success since but it wasn't until the last couple years that the Orange have seen sustained, consistent success at an elite level.

Of course, Coleman's Era has the 1987 Final Four to point to a singular special time and event within itself. What does this KrisJo Era have? So far, a lot of wins and accolades but no singular moment like a Final Four. Boy, that sure would complete the story, wouldn't it?

Now, because you've got that song in your head, go listen to it.
