Former Syracuse Star Dion Waiters Gets The ‘Popcorn In The Car’ Prank | College Spun – Social. Local. Consumable. College Sports.
Cleveland Cavaliers player and former Syracuse Orange guard Dion Waiters has put together a pretty nice first season in the NBA. But he’s still a rookie, meaning that regardless of how well he plays, he’s going to get hazed.
Regardless what happens, the Orange men clearly have redeemed themselves in this tournament. Anything from here on out is gravy for Jim Boeheim's 30-9 squad.
"This week is pretty much going to be a blowout. Every year March Madness is crazy here. Obviously the more they win the more people are rushing in," said Canines Unleashed owner Ann Liberati.
"The biggest thing with them, they're incredibly skilled," Kerr said of Michigan. "This is a team with probably four NBA players on the roster. Even though they're going into the weekend maybe the third-most talked-about team after (No. 1 overall seed) Louisville and Syracuse, they probably have the most future NBA talent, and that's pretty significant."
10. Michigan and Syracuse played four common opponents (Eastern Michigan, Indiana, Pittsburgh and Arkansas). Michigan went 3-2 against those teams; Syracuse went 4-1.
"The more we can scrimmage and get close to game action, the better it’s going to be for all the players’ maturities," offensive line coach Pat Perles said. "Game experience, there’s nothing that can replace that. And we only have a couple guys that have played."
Anthony told AP Basketball Writer Brian Mahoney that he's making teammate Steve Novak, who went to Marquette, wear orange on the Knicks' flight to Miami on Monday as payment for their bet on the Sweet 16 game.
Hamlin led a dominant defensive performance by the Orange, tallying a career-high five caused turnovers and scooping up four ground balls in SU's victory. He covered Canisius' attack Sam Connors for most of the game and didn't allow the sophomore to get off a shot.
"My relationship (with Syracuse fans)? I generally think it is a lot like, it is weird it is a lot like how a lot of college basketball fans view things. At first they think, you have some problem with Boeheim, some problem with Syracuse, but the more you listen to me, fans think he is complimentary when it is deserved, he is negative when it is deserved. His opinion is his own and is not based on any pre-concieved bias. That is really what it is."
Syracuse will win the national title because this zone is still a mystery that some of the best teams in the country haven't been able to decipher in recent weeks. That trend could continue in Atlanta.
