The Syracuse Orange men’s basketball team will have a different look to it in the 2019-20 season. The starting backcourt will be overhauled as Tyus Battle has declared for the NBA Draft while Frank Howard has exhausted his eligibility. Starting center Paschal Chukwu will not return next fall and it remains possible that Oshae Brissett could forego his junior season in favor of a professional career.
While Brissett could still return to the Orange for the 2019-20 season, we took a dive on the mark that he made in the Syracuse record books along with Battle, Howard and Chukwu over their respective careers. Records are listed from highest to lowest ranking by player. As always, credit to Orange Hoops for stats and reference.
