Five-Star Basketball - Dajuan Coleman on Bernie Fine, Syracuse
"I mean as long as the other coaches, Mike Hopkins and Boeheim stay there, I'm pretty sure I shouldn't have any problem with it because like the problem is gone so we can just continue on basketball," Coleman said.

DA William Fitzpatrick reveals one new piece of evidence in on-line Q & A about Bernie Fine case |

College Basketball Power Rankings: Orange Reign Supreme -
Despite one of the most tumultuous off-the-court months in the history of the program, the Syracuse Orange find themselves at 10-0 and on top of the college basketball world today. They may not have the next-level talent of the preseason big three (North Carolina, Kentucky, Ohio State), but there can't be another team in college basketball that's more mentally tough.

Patrick Reusse: Wolves look for Wes Johnson to grow in role |
"What I was doing in the offense last season was one-dimensional," he said. "There wasn't a lot of call for me to make reads, to make cuts. Get a screen and shoot. That was just the offense.

Should Syracuse take the No. 1 spot in the polls? | Beyond the Arc
Syracuse has a solid claim to the top spot. It’s 10-0 and has good wins against Florida and Stanford. They’re experienced, talented and perhaps the most balanced team among all the Final Four contenders. Jardine might be their leader, but wings Kris Joseph and Dian Waiters are their top two scorers, while big men James Southerland, C.J. Fair, Fab Melo and Rakeem Christmas give them inside depth they haven’t had in years.

Why Syracuse is Perfectly Prepared to Handle the #1 Ranking Bullesye : Orange Fizz
This is the best SU has played as one cohesive unit for quite some time, but the challenges continue this weekend. Expect an even more physical and aggressive team Saturday when it heads down to face NC State. How will this team play with big red X on its back? Kris Joseph told The Fizz their place in the polls won’t affect this team.
