Syracuse Daily Links - Orange Focus On Perimeter Defense

MBB | SU aims to improve perimeter defense heading into final tuneup before Big East play - Sports - The Daily Orange
"We don't want to forget about Tulane, but we've got a Seton Hall team coming in that beat us here last year really pretty bad," SU guard Scoop Jardine said. "We owe them. We owe everybody in the Big East. A lot of teams shot really good against us last year, so Coach (Boeheim) is really preaching defense. … So our main focus is going into the Big East and showing everybody that we can play on both ends."

Syracuse Orange Basketball - Syracuse / Tulane Preview
Run, run, run. Syracuse has too many athletes and too much quickness for Tulane. Forcing turnovers and getting into their transition game will be key. Tulane only turns it over about 12 times per game, but expect the Orange to push that number to around 20. The length, athleticism, and aggressiveness of the zone should be too much to handle. Look for Waiters to create a few steals and have some thunderous dunks in transition.

ACC Roundtable: 2011 Postseason Edition - BC Interruption
Syracuse, for two reasons. One is that Syracuse and BC have a long history on the gridirion. The Orange are the Eagles' second most-played opponent in school history behind only Holy Cross. The two schools are very similar in that they are the only two private schools in the Northeast that play big-time college football. The two schools share an interstate, a long history and draw on a lot of the same students. The BC-Syracuse rivalry is a great add to the conference and is sure to heat back up when the Orange finally do move over (whenever that is).
