Syracuse Daily Links - Orange Have A Case Of The Runs

Syracuse has a case of the runs | The Juice Online
It seems like every game there’s about a 5-8 minute stretch where Syracuse separates itself from its opponent. These teams hang around for a while but all of a sudden you look up and the Orange are up by 20.

A win is a win is a conference road win. Such things are never to be taken lightly. And I’m starting to sound like I’m entitled to blazing, high-flying entertainment. Far from it. In fact, we should be thankful that SU got out of there unscathed on a night when they shot 28% from deep.

Wayne Morgan Holds the Key to Syracuse Keeping its Footprint in New York : Orange Fizz
In ESPN’s top players from New York, the first SU commit is 10th on that list – Poncho Barnwell. This is not entirely negative. The Empire State is not known to produce high end football talent, so plucking players from Florida, New Jersey and other states might equate to better athletes. But you certainly want to own your state, especially if Syracuse is "New York’s College Team." 9th on ESPN’s list is August Wolf, who committed to Duke. Yikes.

Syracuse's depth overwhelms another opponent |
"Rak would've played a little more tonight," Boeheim said. "He was sick today." Christmas still scored Syracuse's first two baskets of the game. "I told him he should get sick more often," said Boeheim.

"If I could do it all over again," Waiters began, before stopping that train of thought in its tracks. "I'm happy where I'm at. I committed to Syracuse when I was in eighth, ninth grade. It happened so fast. It's always good to play for your city, to try to put your city on the map. Syracuse was my pick, and I'm happy with the choice I went with."

Villanova basketball coach Jay Wright calls Syracuse 'a really special team' |
"We've played against a lot of great Syracuse teams, even back when I was an assistant and they had Sherman Douglas, Billy Owens, Rony Seikaly, but I don't remember them having a team with this kind of depth...A lot of teams have talent but don't play together well and aren't unselfish. These guys come off the bench, they do the dirty work, play their role. It's a really special team."

The Orange have been the most dominant team this season and it's not close. Pick apart the schedule if you'd like but Syracuse has handled every test. There are no primaries this election year in the Big East. The race is over.

Midseason awards: IU's Crean, Creighton's McDermott the best of the best - NCAA Basketball - Sporting News
There’s little doubt the Orange are an elite team. They’ve dominated too many good teams (Seton Hall, NC State) and won too many overall (17-0) to not be considered a challenger for the title. However, they did not play an overabundance of great teams in non-league play and the Big East schedule began with SU either playing at home against solid opponents or going on the road to face the bottom tier. What will Syracuse look like when it’s seriously under pressure.
