Syracuse's Next Challenge: the Dreaded Double Bye -

Big East tournament primer -- what to watch at MSG - ESPN
This is what happens when you play so well during the regular season: The bar is set somewhere in a redwood treetop. The Orange have zero wiggle room. Anything less than a Big East tournament title will be considered a disappointment.

Big East Awards 2012: Jim Boeheim Is SB Nation New York's Coach Of The Year - SB Nation New York
Call me a homer, front-runner or whatever you'd like, but in the middle of his 36th season, SU's head coach deserves this award for multiple reasons. Here's a few of the top of my head (okay, I looked some of these up):

Biggest Mistakes by the Big East Conference: Fan's Opinion - Yahoo! Sports
I've been a fan of the Big East since it was formed back in 1979 as a basketball conference. My favorite college basketball team, the Syracuse Orange, was a founding member of the Big East. I'm also a Rutgers Scarlet Knights fan in football, so I also follow Big East football.

Dome institution: The guy in the orange coat |
His basic outfit at the dome stays the same: orange-and-blue tie, dress shirt and slacks. Harry also wears a tiny American flag and a pin reflecting his Navy service: He earned the Bronze Star after a World War II explosion knocked him unconscious for two days. The fierce pain from those wounds did not subside until Harry began taking medication for his cancer, in the 1990s.

Led by a strong core of hungry veterans -- senior forward Kris Joseph, a Big East First-Team selection, and senior guard Scoop Jardine, a second-team selection -- and possibly the deepest and talented bench in the country, the Orange (30-1, 17-1) will want to showcase its ability at the "World Most Famous Arena".

View 219: SU Basketball Hardwood Club Dinner | Views Infinitum
I attended the 41st Annual Syracuse University Basketball Hardwood Club Dinner last night to celebrate the team’s season to this point, give a big send off to the senior members of the team and to raise money for college scholarship funds. The event gives fans a chance to chat with coaches and players, get their autographs, bid on a silent auction and pose for pictures.

ACC Tournament at Madison Square Garden Looks Inevitable
So enjoy the next several Big East Tournaments while you can because, come 2016, I fully expect Madison Square Garden to kick the Big East to the curb in a New York minute.

MBB | Cooper: With role players contributing, Syracuse heads into postseason with confidence - Sports - The Daily Orange
All year, the talk about Syracuse has circled around depth. Deepest team in the country. The bench eclipsed 1,000 total points in the Louisville game. Waiters and C.J. Fair could start for any other team in the country. The praise goes on and on. But where that depth is utilized most is in games like Saturday's. Jardine went scoreless and Joseph finished below his season average in points. Triche and Southerland were there to pick up the slack.
