Daily Links - The Donte Greene Effect

does anyone else still find it hard to root for Donte Greene? - Cuse Country
I can’t decide if I should come around to rooting for him as a representative of Syracuse basketball, or be outraged that he’s turning into a better player in the pros than he ever was for SU.

Orange Fizz: Syracuse Orange Sports Blog, Recruiting and Podcasts.
The Fizz has news from a legitimate academic institution: it's game day, the Orange is ranked 2nd in the country, and UConn is on the outside looking in. So with that in mind, it's time for us to take off the gloves and have some blog fun.

Big East pre-spring power rankings - Big East Blog - ESPN
It's tough to differentiate between Syracuse and Louisville for the last two spots in these rankings. Both will be at a disadvantage talentwise. It pretty much comes down to the fact that it's Doug Marrone's second year vs. the first year for Charlie Strong. Still, the Orange need a quarterback and some offensive playmakers to avoid the cellar again.

A look at how Pat Manley makes the giant cutouts : Sports : WSTM NBC3
irst, Pat must find a high resolution image of his subject, or take a photo of his own like he did for Kris Joseph's giant head.

OrangeHoops: Balanced Scoring
A combination of factors have brought the Orange to this point. They are playing outstanding defense most every game. My hat off to coach Jim Boeheim for getting this year’s squad to buy into the defensive scheme. The squad doesn’t have the individual talent level as last year’s team, but they have far more guys willing to play defense and willing to play Boeheim’s defense.

Mike's Mailbag: Has the Melo Center contributed to SU's fantastic season? | Orange Basketball Blog - syracuse.com
I don’t know if you can draw a direct correlation between the opening of the Carmelo K. Anthony Basketball Center last fall and the Orange’s 23-1 record this season. However, the Melo Center has had some positive effects on the team and the program.
