In case you missed it during Syracuse's win over Florida State on Thursday, erstwhile Syracuse Orange forwards Jerami Grant and Chris McCullough made their return to the Carrier Dome. Due to the NBA's All-Star break, the two NBA guys had some extra time and decided to make the trip to Syracuse.
Grant is having his best season with Philadelphia as he's averaging 9.2 points, 4.6 rebounds, 1.6 assists and 1.6 blocks per game. Grant actually ranks 11th in the NBA in blocks per game.
McCullough meanwhile just saw his first action being back from injury -- he actually tore his ACL against Florida State -- against the Denver Nuggets on February 8th. He scored his first NBA bucket on a jumper just inside the arc.
If not for early departures to the NBA, both Grant and McCullough would still be eligible to play at Syracuse. Grant would have been a senior on this year's team while McCullough would be a sophomore with experience playing the center spot of the zone. See both guys' interview with CuseTV below:
