Former Syracuse guard Scoop Jardine was selected by the Tulsa 66ers with the sixth pick in the third round of the NBA Development League Draft on Friday, Nov. 1.
Syracuse freshman guard Tyler Ennis is one of 10 players selected to the 2014 Integris Wayman Tisdale Freshman of the Year Award Preseason Watch List, announced by the U.S. Basketball Writers Association on Monday, Nov. 4.
"Right now I’m not even thinking about that," Edsall said. "I’m just trying to get through this game. C.J.’s ready to go. C.J.’s our starter. We’ll put an end to that right there so you won’t have anything to write for two weeks."
"I think this year's team will be kind of like last year's in that it will be led by the defense," he said. "As we talked about then, that's a little unusual for Syracuse. But given the lack of playmaking experience in the backcourt and the length in the frontcourt, I think they'll be more consistent defensively than offensively."
"I'm not gonna lie, it felt pretty good," Gbinije said. "During warm-ups I still felt like I was dressed up in street clothes and I wasn't allowed to play. It's still hitting me that I'm actually eligible to play now."
If Shafer and company can make these changes permanent, Syracuse will make a bowl game.
"It’s good to see Jarrod get going," Syracuse guard Rob Trudo said. "It’s good to see him come around."
Sarah Kerly took advantage of an opening in the corner of the cage and scored the only goal for No. 2 Syracuse (15-2, 4-2 Atlantic Coast) in a hard-fought 1-0 victory over the No. 3 Tar Heels (14-4, 3-3) in front of 324 fans at J.S. Coyne Stadium. The win locked up the No. 2-seed for SU in the ACC tournament, which begins Thursday in Newton, Mass. The Orange will face No. 7-seed Boston College.
"I just felt like if we had one blocked there then it’s not a two-point conversion if they run it back," Shafer said. "It’s a touchdown."
Syracuse, Georgetown and Boston College "have probably been in the most," Larry Blunt, the team’s head coach, told SNY.tv by phone Friday.
