Syracuse Basketball: Get To Know All Of The Cooneys

There are a lot of guys named Cooney on Syracuse, apparently. Here's a helpful way to tell them apart.

During the Virginia Tech game, Syracuse Orange fans were surprised to find out that Trevor Cooney's brother, Terry Cooney, was also a member of the squad. It was quite a shock.

So imagine everyone's surprise Monday night when they learned that two more brothers, Gerry and Tyler, were also in uniform. How had Jim Boeheim pulled off this recruiting coup without anyone knowing? And furthermore, how can we tell when it's Trevor, Gerry, Terry or Tyler on the floor at any given moment since Boeheim abhors putting more than one Cooney in at a time?

We'll try to help by differentiating the Cooneys for you below. Hopefully, this helps not only you but future SU basketball announcers who obviously do such detailed, nuanced work preparing for the game.
