Syracuse Midnight Madness: Sold Out & Almost Showtime

New, comments

Well, I guess you really wanted to go to Syracuse Orange Midnight Madness. The event is officially sold out.

All of the tickets issued at the Carrier Dome Box Office, the Schine Student Center and area AmeriCU Credit Union branches are gone. Tickets were free, but fans must have a ticket to get into the Dome.

The high expectations of the 2011-2012 Orange and the excitement of the Legends Game is just too much to pass up. Understood.

One Legend that's still up in the air is Carmelo Anthony. He has yet to confirm officially. That might be because he's actually going to be in Manhattan all day. Carmelo is doing a meet-and-greet at Modell's in Times Square that runs until 3:00pm. It's not out of the realm of possibility he could book it to the airport, hop a short flight to Syracuse and make it in time...but I dunno. I'll believe it when I see it.

Regardless, you should still be there to see Hakim Warrick, Derrick Coleman, Jonny Flynn, Gerry McNamara, Roosevelt Bouie, Adrian Autry, Wesley Johnson, Pearl Washington and Donte Greene...not to mention some others who might show. Some of them will sign autographs and take photos for fans between 7-8 p.m.

Boeheim's not a huge fan of Midnight Madness, though I suspect having so many great players from his past in the building helps make it enjoyable. He's Jim Boeheim, there is a limit to how excited he gets.
