Syracuse Basketball Vs. Albany: Scouting The Great Danes - SB Nation New York
Albany, which enters Tuesday's match up as 24 1/2 point underdog, is probably the best team SU has seen so far, but that's not saying much. Not only will the Orange need to keep Aronhalt in check, but also watch out for junior guard Mike Black, who also earned All-America East Third Team honors last year, and guard Gerardo Suero, a junior college transfer, who netted a game-best 29 points against Brown.

WBB | Junior college transfer Williams begins season in Syracuse's starting lineup - Sports - The Daily Orange
Williams brings her understanding of the game to Syracuse (1-0) this season after spending two years at two junior colleges. She earned a spot in the starting lineup at shooting guard to start the season and played 14 minutes in the Orange's season opener against Long Beach State on Sunday. Though she didn't see the floor for long stretches, Williams played under control and made good decisions with the ball, turning it over just once.

Syracuse Orange Basketball - The Emergence of James Southerland

After all, he was behind Joseph, Fair, and Christmas at the forward positions, and he didn't rebound well enough to play the four. This site even stated in our Small Forward position preview that he didn't deserve minutes outside of throwing him in for five minutes or so to see if he could catch fire. Boy was that off base.
