"He is very athletic, and with his speed and versatility, he can play inside with his size and play off the edge too. He has a great work ethic and his athletic ability makes him a pretty good prospect."

Big East efficiency margins, 1-9-12 - Rumble In The Garden
The Syracuse Orange have been obviously dominant, and no other team is close. They have been deadly on offense inside the arc and very good outside the arc. On defense, they're a notch behind Cincinnati in some categories - and have played Providence and DePaul, so take the numbers with a little grain of salt. They're stealing the ball and blocking shots at elite levels, and Dion Waiters may be the best sixth man in the country, continuing the promise in the counting stats that he showed last season in limited time.

Fouls on the downswing, Syracuse's go-to guy, more Hoop Thoughts - Seth Davis -
The biggest question I have about Syracuse right now -- really the only question -- is to what degree this team's biggest strength (balance) becomes its primary weakness (lack of a go-to guy). Think of it this way: If it's a regional final, and it's late in the game and late in the shot clock, who gets the ball? It should be Kris Joseph, but he doesn't have a takeover personality. It might be Scoop Jardine, but he's not a great shooter and tends to be careless. Brandon Triche? He's solid but not spectacular. It will probably end up being Dion Waiters, but given that he's a sophomore who comes off the bench, is that really ideal? This is a good problem to have, but it is a problem.

Syracuse: Instead of giving pause to how good the Orange is, Syracuse’s survival win against Marquette only enforced just why Jim Boeheim’s team is the best in the country. The Orange needed to be tested and was, giving up most of a 23-point lead. Yet Cuse dug in to gut out the win.

For the past two seasons, Jim Boeheim’s team has gotten off to roaring starts in the beginning of the season only to falter in the field of 68 — but this team is different. With a plethora of options off the bench and a soothing mix and experience and youth, Boeheim may finally have his best chance to win his second title and ironically enough he’d have to do it where he won his first one — New Orleans.

One thing is clear right now: Syracuse is No. 1 in the Big East and in the nation. Marquette put up a fight late but Syracuse didn't panic Saturday. The "Are they really No. 1 in the nation?" questions must stop.

Here's what we learned on Saturday - College Basketball Nation Blog - ESPN
Syracuse still has a tendency for defensive lulls. Marquette scored 47 points in the second half to make the game a lot more interesting than anyone could have imagined during a 23-1 first-half run by Syracuse. But the Orange continue to get tremendous balance from their deep rotation, and they continue to rise to various challenges from teams -- road environment at Providence and a tough challenge from Marquette this week -- and are always able to finish. This is the No. 1 team in America, and it deserves to be the No. 1 team in America.

The Syracuse basketball team remains at #1 for yet another week with wins over Providence and Marquette. Also, the long awaited return of Kenny's Quick Hits.
