Curious: During Midnight Madness, the "Blue" team that took the floor consisted of Rick Jackson, Scoop Jardine, Kris Joseph, Fab Melo and Dion Waiters. Four of those five are foregone conclusions to start for Syracuse this season. The other is Dion Waiters.
Curiouser: Jim Boeheim refers to Waiters as "probably the best freshman guard we’ve had in a long time. A long time. Talent-wise.’’ We would assume that Boeheim's points of comparison are Jason Hart, Gerry McNamara, Jonny Flynn and Brandon Triche. All four of those players started as freshmen.
And so I ask you...is Dion Waiters going to start for Syracuse this year? Therefore, will it be Brandon Triche coming off the bench instead of Scoop Jardine? And given how good all three of those players are, does it eventually even matter?
