The big list of Big East lists: Who are the top 5 candidates for Big East Player of the Year? | syracuse.com
5. C.J. Fair, Syracuse: The 6-foot-8 junior is my darkhorse pick. Brandon Triche is a more likely choice to be an all-conference player, but I don't think he'll be a Player of the Year. If there's a POY candidate on the Orange roster, it's Fair. Remember that stretch Fair had in the heart of Big East play when he reached double-figures five times in a six-game stretch? He had 21 points and eight rebounds against Rutgers. He had 14 points and 12 boards against Connecticut. In the NCAA tournament, Fair had 15 points, seven boards and four steals against Wisconsin. If Fair can put those numbers up on a consistent basis, he'll be in the conversation for player of the year.

By 1989-90, UConn was already a Top-10 team competing on Syracuse’s level. The No. 8 Huskies beat the No. 4 Orangemen 78-75 in the 1990 Big East tournament championship at Madison Square Garden for its first league title. In just four years, a rivalry between the programs was born.
10 quick hits on Syracuse athletics | The Juice Online
I feel terrible for the BIG EAST. It’s been beat up, kicked under the bus and left to rot. This is the conference I grew up cheering for—even before I went to Syracuse—and right now, it can’t get much worse. For a conference with great tradition and history, it’s a shame to see it now. I don’t know how—or if—it can recover, but it won’t ever be the same.
Syracuse football coach adjusts practice routine in an effort to help produce faster starts | syracuse.com
Syracuse usually starts with stretching exercises, then does some special-teams work, then goes to individual drills before regrouping for team scrimmaging. Today’s routine had the team go directly to scrimmage work after the stretching exercises with the first offense working against the scout-team defense on one half of the Carrier Dome field and the first-team defense working against the scout-team offense on the other half.
