This Day in 'Cuse History - February 27, 1994

Let's get in the time machine and travel back to February 27, 1994. On this day, the Syracuse Orangemen squeaked by St. Johns 82-81 at MSG.

Syracuse improved to 19-5 on the year and featured some of the most memorable names in SU hoops history.

The starting lineup was led by junior Lawrence "poetry in" Moten with 24 points. Future assistant coach Adrian "Red" Autry finished with 17 points, 6 rebounds, and 6 assists. John Wallace played great with 15 points and 11 boards. Lucious Jackson added 13 points and Otis Hill rounded out the starting five with 9 points annd grabbed 7 rebounds.

The Syracuse bench was led by California recruit Scott McCorkle as he played 17 minutes and finished with 2 points and 5 rebounds. Also, coming off the bench was another future assistant Lazarus Sims playing 8 minutes and scoring 2 points with 1 assist. J.B. Reafsnyder played 6 minutes with 3 rebounds and Charles Gelatt was nice enough to check in for one minute and then transfer.

St. John's was led by Charles Minlend with 28 points and Roshown Mcleod with 11 points and 7 boards before leaving for Duke.

This was a talented Syracuse team that I always enjoyed watching. They finished 23-7 and lost to Missouri in the regional semifinals of the NCAA tournament. Many of these players would put it all together in two years on their way to the Final Four.

It's all about the Orange!
