Upstate Orange Podcast: Boeheim's Bunch Owns It In Maui

Is this Syracuse team better than we thought they were? After watching them roll through three major conference opponents en route to another Maui Invitational championship for Jim Boeheim, it is hard to deny. We recap the events in Maui and look ahead to the Indiana game in the Dome on Tuesday night.

After watching Jim Boeheim's Syracuse Orange move to 7-0 with three straight wins against major conference opponents at the Maui Invitational, we ask these Big Five Questions:

#1 is this team is better than we thought they were?
#2 Would you trade C.J. Fair & Jeremi Grant for any other tandem in the country?
#3 Can a freshman point guard lead us back to the Final Four?
#4 Is Free Throw Shooting no longer an issue for this team?
#5 Where does this 7-0 team need to show improvement?

Also, in tonight's trivia segment, can you name the top ten free throw shooters of the Boeheim era?

In "The List" we make a holiday shopping list and choose a specific talent from Orangemen past to re-gift for players on this year's squad.

Join Jim Sinicropi and Brad Conner for 80 minutes of wall-to-wall Syracuse basketball talk and an ACC-Big Ten Challenge Preview on a special Thanksgiving Night Edition of the Upstate Orange Podcast.
