ACC Tournament coming to Brooklyn, NY

The ACC desires a two-year agreement that could start as early as 2017, the next uncommitted year for the ACC Tournament. (The ACC plays in Greensboro in 2015 and in Washington DC in 2016). The looming issue with playing at the Barclays Center in 2017 is the Atlantic 10 Tournament, as 2017 is the final installment of the A-10's five-year agreement with the Barclays Center. The details of how the ACC and A-10 will navigate that have not been finalized and are expected to be discussed in the Atlantic 10's presidents and athletic directors meetings on Friday morning. The ACC's move to New York has been viewed within the conference as inevitable, as it's expected that the league will rotate through New York and North Carolina locations after 2017. (Maryland's departure to the Big Ten makes Washington DC a less natural place to hold the tournament.) The ACC has no chance to move to Madison Square Garden in the immediate future, as MSG has a deal signed with the Big East through 2026. Multiple sources described that contract as "air tight." A source with direct knowledge of the contract said that Joseph M. Leccese, the Big East's lawyer with prominent firm Proskauer Rose, spent an inordinate amount of time making sure that MSG couldn't get out of the deal with the Big East. (The Garden is considered the Big East's best asset.)

'Nova loses to Seton Hall

A lot of people had 'Nova penciled in as the #1 seed in the East. With this L, does whichever of Syracuse/Duke/UVA that wins the ACC tourney slide into that spot?

Experts not sour on Orange

An article in the Albany Times Union by the staff Media columnist, who was at the CBS-TBS NCAA media day in NYC yesterday. Here's a pro-Orange quote from Seth Davis: "People have been too quick to swing the pendulum away from Syracuse because of this little speed bump," studio analyst Seth Davis said. "Let's see what they do at the ACC Tournament. I still think they're a Final Four team."

Fair loses out on ACC POY to T.J. Warren

I gotta admit, I'm happy for Warren. He deserved it. I would have preferred to see Fair win it, of course...

Which College Coaches Have Produced the Most NBA Talent?

Nice read from Sonics Rising. Boeheim's on the list, though not a deep subject of conversation

Bracketology that isn't ESPN

A bunch of guys make their predictions on seeding and such. Not an impressive layout like ESPN, but it seems a lot more accurate than Lunardi. And no I'm not affiliated with this site and in no way, shape, or form just think its pretty interesting

The Morning After: Back in Business Can the Orange use the W against FSU as a springboard into the postseason?

Dave Bing will represent Syracuse in the 2014 ACC Legends Class at the ACC Tournament

GREENSBORO, N.C.—One of the most successful coaches in Atlantic Coast Conference history, a member of the Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame, a former ACC Athlete of the Year and a former ACC Basketball Player of the Year history headline the 2014 ACC Men’s Basketball Legends Class announced Wednesday by Commissioner John Swofford. Leading the way is former Syracuse sharpshooting guard Dave Bing (Washington, D.C.), who was a consensus All-America for the Orange and a seven-time NBA All-Star while earning selection to the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame. Bing (1962-66) is one of the most explosive offensive players in Syracuse and NBA history. The quintessential lead guard, he led Syracuse in scoring in each of his three varsity seasons. He averaged 22.2 points per game as a sophomore in 1964, 23.2 points as a junior in 1965 and 28.4 points as a senior in 1966. In his final season, he ranked fifth in the nation in scoring and became Syracuse’ first consensus All-America in basketball in 39 years. With freshmen not eligible for varsity competition, he played just three seasons but still ranks ninth on Syracuse’ career scoring list with 1,883 points. He averaged 24.8 points per game for his career. A former roommate and teammate of current Syracuse head coach Jim Boeheim, he joined with Jimmy Walker to give Syracuse one of the most, if not the most, potent backcourts in the nation. He helped lead the Orange to a 52-24 record, one appearance in the NIT and one in the NCAA Tournament. Bing was the second person selected in the 1966 NBA Draft. Chosen by the Detroit Pistons, he went on to play 12 years in the NBA, the first nine with Detroit. He was a seven-time NBA All-Star and the MVP of the 1976 All-Star Game. He finished his professional career having scored 18,327 points, averaging 20.3 points per game. Named to the NBA’s 50th Anniversary Team, he twice was named to the All-NBA First Team and led the league in scoring in 1968. His jersey, No. 21, was retired by the Pistons. In 1977, he was presented by the NBA with the prestigious J. Walter Kennedy Citizenship Award for his community service. He finished his NBA career with short stints with Washington and the Boston Celtics. He was enshrined in the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame in 1990. After retirement from basketball, he started his own successful company, Bing Steel which transformed to the Bing Group, a conglomerate headquartered in Detroit. In 2009, he was presented with the National Civil Rights Museum Sports Legacy Award. Also that year, he was elected mayor of Detroit and served in that capacity until this past December. Originally a native of Washington, D.C., he resides in Detroit. The Legends will be honored at this year’s ACC Men’s Basketball Tournament in Greensboro at the annual ACC Basketball Legends Brunch, which will be held on Saturday, March 15, beginning at 10 a.m. in the Guilford Ballroom of the Sheraton Four Seasons Hotel. The event will include a short autograph session with the Legends at the conclusion of the Brunch. Tickets for the ACC Men’s Basketball Legends Brunch are priced at $35 each, and tables of 10 are available for $350 each. Information on purchasing tickets may be obtained at the official ACC website—http://theacc.co/MBB14legendstix

Tyler Ennis makes dream a reality

SYRACUSE, N.Y. — Far from here, light years from the cool, calm and seemingly unflappable Tyler Ennis seen on the basketball court these days, there's another Tyler. He's five years old, a Tyler who runs in front of video cameras and hams it up in homemade videos. He pretends he's a pseudo-news reporter, covering the happenings of the household. This is Tyler TV, and I'm reporting from a birthday. This is Tyler TV, and I'm talking to Dylan Ennis. This is Tyler TV here in the kitchen, and this is what we're having for dinner.
