Of course, looking at that list, you realize something. There's five seniors.
There are five players in a starting lineup.
Do you think...I mean is it possible...I mean....would Boeheim start all five starters on Senior Day?
It seems to be a trend picking up steam all over college basketball. I don't really remember Boeheim going out of his way to do this in the past, though maybe I just never realized it.
On one side, technically the game against Louisville "doesn't mean anything." Syracuse has locked up its seeding and nothing will change, other than national poll positions, if the Orange lose. Not to say SU is throwing in the towel of they start three walk-ons. Besides, you can take them out at the first whistle and even if you're down a couple points, what's the harm?
On the other side, that just doesn't sound...right. Big East game. Boeheim vs. Pitino. Louisville has owned us the last few years. They need the win in order to get back on track headed into the BET as they look to sure up their NCAA seed. Do we really want to give them the motivation of "these guys just put in a bunch of walk-ons" against us? Even if we're only talking about thirty seconds, that's a pretty critical thirty seconds.
I don't know. My gut tells me Boeheim won't do it. But do you think he should?
Should Boeheim start all five seniors on Senior Day?
