Former Syracuse shooting guard Trevor Cooney will join Boeheim’s Army in The Basketball Tournament this summer, he announced on Saturday morning.

Cooney, who played for the Orange from 2012-16, went to two Final Fours in his decorated career. He scored over 1,000 career points, played in two conferences and made 281 career 3-pointers.

Cooney, who will turn 24 on August 1st, is currently an unrestricted free agent.

A fan favorite, Cooney had the ability to go for 30 points on any given night. His ability to hit from virtually anywhere on the court brought excitement every time he touched the ball for Jim Boeheim’s club.

In his final game in an SU uniform, which came against North Carolina in the National Semifinals, Cooney went for 22 points on 9-of-18 from the floor.

He was one of the most criticized players in recent memory, but the 2015-16 Final Four run silenced the doubters and put Cooney is company that only fellow teammate Dajuan Coleman is in — two career Final Fours at SU.

Last year, Cooney played in Spain, Germany and enjoyed a short stint with the Brooklyn Nets D-League affiliate.
