Daily Links - The Win Over Marquette And More

SU-Marquette Recap | The Axeman - Brent Axe -
Syracuse is a very good team and has a lot of talent from top to bottom, but the difference maker is Wes. He has stand out talent, star quality, and the "it" factor and has become that player a team needs to lean on in order to be in the Top 5 and hopefully can lean on to go far in the NCAA Tournament.

Three Idiots on Sports: Syracuse Marquette Observations
Andy Rautins didn't score and only took two shots, but the interesting thing is he COULD have scored if he wanted too -- or at least forced up 5 or 6 more shots. In the second half he consistently passed up shots to find open team mates for better shots. A more selfish player would have hoisted a few -- but Andy could care less. He just wants to win.

OrangeHoops: This and That... and the Orangemen are 19-1!
I assume I’m in the same class as many other Orange fans these days, but I really enjoy watching these guys win. The extra pass on several occasions, the blocked shot when needed, a Wes Johnson highlight play or two a game. The 2009-2010 Orangemen are a lot of fun to watch. And of course, being 19-1 helps out with that enjoyment. But I think they would be fun if they were 13-6.

Transfer Wes Johnson Finds Paradise at Syracuse -
After three high schools, a six-month stretch playing pickup games at a junior college and affiliations with three other colleges, the Syracuse junior forward Wes Johnson has proved to be an outlier. His halogen smile shows his happiness, and his production for a Syracuse team that has gone from being unranked to a Final Four front-runner makes him an overachiever.

'Jersey Shore' themed fraternity parties dominate weekend night life - Feature
Do not be alarmed if every store around Syracuse University is out of hair gel. After a weekend full of fraternities coincidently hosting "Jersey Shore"-themed parties, it is safe to say that many students gelled up for a night full of fist-pumping and hair poofs, as Syracuse transformed into Seaside Heights, N.J.
