Syracuse Daily Links: Michael Carter-Williams Is Ready

Michael Carter-Williams: "I'm definitely ready for Syracuse" |
"It was definitely the best experience I've ever had," he said. "I wasn't looking for a shot every time I got the ball; I was just trying to play it like any other game — find the open person and get him the ball. Everyone knew that we can all score the ball, but there are things other than scoring."

"Michael does all the little things. I can't say it enough, that coaches need to win. The biggest thing he does, is the rebounding from the guard position. That is going to be huge at Syracuse, not only offensively but also defensively."

After he was limited to two points in the McDonald's game, it was reassuring when the Hamilton resident received text messages from Syracuse University assistant coaches Mike Hopkins and Gerry McNamara after the McDonald's East All-Stars downed the West, 111-96, at the United Center. "They just said 'Congratulations,' and 'Great job,'" said Carter-Williams, a 6-foot-5 guard who will likely enroll in classes at Syracuse in July before embarking on the next phase of his career.

"Antwon by no means was a No. 2," Wheatley said. "So with that being said, this year, I wouldn't say (the running back situation is) a problem, but the thing that we want to have is who's the No. 2 guy? You've got Tyson and you have young Jerome back there pushing for the No. 2 spot. So that's going to be the big question mark, No. 2."

A few thoughts from the Big City Classic - College Crosse
Under the bright lights of the Big City Classic, the Orange offense woke up. Nine different goal scorers equals a balanced offense for Coach Desko. It was good to see the second line create some offense as junior Bobby Eilers scored his first goal of his career. Stephen Ianzito also added a goal and freshmen Scott Loy added an assist. Didnt see Peter Coleman at all for the Orange, who has been taking runs on the second line for most of the season.
