Syracuse Orange Basketball: DA's Statements Do Not Conclude Bernie Fine Saga | Bleacher Report
Fitzpatrick said that both Davis and Lang are "credible," meaning that what they said happened when they were ball boys is still clouded by mystery. Taking into account the aggressive nature of reporting ESPN has taken with this story, it is very possible that digging into the past of Syracuse basketball could be done by the media rather than police.

Fitzpatrick All Over the Map, Syracuse Clown College Takes Winter Break : Orange Fizz
Fitzpatrick was guilty of the same thing Boeheim was. Speaking too soon, and with ill-advised conviction, before knowing the facts.

Orange::44: Florida/Marshall - Syracuse Postgame Reactions OR Two More Wins
Syracuse next takes on George Washington from the Atlantic 10 on Saturday at noon. Despite being #3 and 9-0 Syracuse can always improve. They have few valuable tune ups left before the Big East slate, so hopefully Syracuse will continue to improve. The last five minutes of this game were not too pleasant. Neither are losses.

Lacrosse player's court date moved to February - News - The Daily Orange
The court hearing for a Syracuse men's lacrosse player was adjourned to a new date at the Onondaga County Courthouse on Tuesday. The new court date for Kevin Drew, a senior defensive midfielder, is Feb. 1, after his lawyer requested an adjournment that was granted by presiding City Court Judge Vanessa Bogan.

Syracuse's strength, Ryan Boatright's shortcomings, more mailbag - Seth Davis - SI.com
There is no doubt in my mind that Christmas and Carter-Williams are going to be very good college players. It's also clear their playing time has been limited by the presence of established underclassmen. (Which naturally makes them candidates for my list of breakout sophs next year.) Carter-Williams looked very impressive when I watched the team practice in October, but he has really struggled to shoot (26.9 percent from the floor, 16.7 percent from three). Meanwhile, Christmas, a raw 6-foot-9 power forward, has been getting the Fab Melo treatment. He has started every game, but Boeheim has been giving him a quick hook, and he is ranked eighth on the team in minutes played at 13 per game. I thought Boeheim really hurt Melo's confidence by doing that last year, and I fear he's now doing the same to Christmas.

Big East Basketball: Syracuse, Louisville, Marquette Are League's National Title Contenders - SB Nation New York
No. 3 Syracuse Orange (9-0): SU has earned victories over Stanford, Virginia Tech, No. 12 Florida and the Marshall Thundering Herd, respectively. When the regular season is finished, each of those programs should be headed to the NCAA Tournament. The Orange won their first seven games by an average of 26 points and have a very talented 10-man rotation that should progress nicely as the season moves along.

B.E. ONE LESS - Every Day Should Be Saturday
Each year in the U.S., tens of college athletic departments learn they have Big East. Dozens more may be afflicted but not even know - a recent study suggested that as many as 45% of Big East members were unaware of their conference affiliation, as they'd never been tested.

After Onondaga County District Attorney William Fitzpatrick announced that his office is closing its investigation on Bernie Fine, CitrusTV's Clay LePard spoke with the DA to clarify the facts of the case and how he feels the situation was handled by Syracuse police and Syracuse University.
