Syracuse Daily Links - Getting Ready For The Bears

Ezra Shaw

Crabbe is widely expected to declare for the NBA Draft once California’s season ends, so he’s certainly going to do everything he can to keep the Golden Bears alive in the NCAA Tournament.

Q&A with Golden Bears beat writer Jonathan Kuperberg of The Daily Californian | The Daily Orange

To beat Syracuse, everyone on Cal will have to play well. All-Pac-12 second-teamer Justin Cobbs needs to take care of the ball and provide a scoring punch to complement Crabbe. The Bears need to make open shots and not just take 3s because they are open. Forward Richard Solomon (8.5 ppg, 6.6 rpg) is key. He is an emotional player and tends to disappear in games if he has a rough start. But when he is energized early, such as in the win over UNLV, Solomon gives his team a huge boost on both sides of the court.

US Education Dept: Syracuse would lose in first round of NCAA Tournament based on academics | syracuse.com

Brackets posted on the U.S. Department of Education website shows Division I schools facing off based on their APR (Academic Progress Rates). A perfect score is 1000, while a 930 is "equivalent to having half of the team's athletes on track to graduate." Tie-breakers, when scores were identical, were determined by the GSR (Graduation Success Rates) of student-athletes playing basketball. Based on those numbers, the Syracuse University men's basketball team, with an APR of 936, would lose to the University of Montana due to the Grizzlies' APR of 960. The men's overall winner this year would be Notre Dame (1000) over Kansas (1000).

Syracuse's defensive effort against Montana was one for the record books | syracuse.com

"We didn't let them get any easy looks,'' Syracuse forward C.J. Fair said. "I think we got on the ball well and didn't let them get many second-chance points. It's hard to score when you're only shooting one-and-done, and luckily, they weren't shooting as well as they do usually. They're a good 3-point shooting team. They missed a few jumpers in the beginning and we started our run and just kept our foot down.''

"I thought getting Dajuan in there, I think he showed some of the things he can do offensively," Boeheim said. "He’s had some good practices and it was good to be able to get him out there and get him in that game. And I thought he did a really good job."

Syracuse University Athletics - Peoples Joins SU Strength Staff

Nathaniel Peoples brings impressive credentials to the Syracuse Athletics program as the assistant director of strength and conditioning. The head strength coach for Western Michigan for eight years, Peoples was responsible for the strength and conditioning program for the football team and the daily operation of the football weight room. During his tenure at WMU, the Broncos played in three bowl games and he trained 12 National Football League draft selections, including three second round picks.

As Boeheim replied that he had already made his comment, the moderator interjected: "We will refrain from additional questions on that." Then Boeheim reversed course. "That's fine," he said. "I don't mind. You can ask a hundred of them." The moderator worked for the NCAA. So of course, he had to be wrong. Boeheim had to contradict him. He wasn't going to concede that he needed this functionary's protection. He used the blasé tone to do it. But like his team against Montana, he made everyone else take shots that didn't have a chance.
