While we’re still unsure on whether or not The Basketball Tournament actually happens this summer, Boeheim’s Army continues to add quality former Syracuse Orange stars to the roster for the event.
In recent weeks, we’ve seen Eric Devendorf, Tyler Lydon and Malachi Richardson added to the list. Now, we get yet another Orange standout with NCAA Tournament experience: Brandon Triche (per Syracuse.com).
Triche last suited up for Boeheim’s Army back in 2018, when he averaged seven points, 3.3 assists and four boards per game. He also played for them in 2016, when he averaged 11 per contest. Last year, it was a leg injury (suffered in Italy) that prevented him from being able to see the floor for the team.

General manager Kevin Belbey continues to build his roster. He said today that Triche was a vital piece of the Army puzzle, citing Triche’s successful seasons abroad as evidence of his worth. “He can do anything for us on the floor,” Belbey said. “He can play either guard position. He knows what it takes to win and he’s willing to do what it takes to win. And he’s made a lot of big plays for us over the years.”

It’s a bummer for Syracuse that I spent a lot of time considering the outcome of games against Rutgers and Western Michigan. Ideally, the Orange are in a position where those games are automatic wins, and the debates surround games against Florida State and Louisville. From a power ratings perspective, I’ve got Syracuse ranked 14th among ACC teams, and in 2020 its most winnable ACC games are on the road against Wake Forest and Boston College.

So Babers went to chancellor Kent Syverud, Boller said, with the support of a group that also included athletic director John Wildhack. They showed Syverud their findings and asked for assistance in convincing admissions to reconsider. “The first time it got denied, I told Alton, ‘If I was you, I’d hit me in the mouth right now,’” Boller said. “I felt so bad that the kid might have to go home, but Dino went back to the chancellor and got it done.”

Jim Boeheim, Syracuse head coach: If my players could be here, I would be in the gym with them and my coaches. Combine that with a staff lunch and then a dinner with friends. If no team, I would golf with my sons.
