Topics include:

  • Encouraged or discouraged from the Colgate game?
  • Why this team needs Benny Williams
  • Early season rebounding woes
  • The center rotation. Who’s the third option?
  • Chris Bell’s eruption for a career-high 25 points
  • Judah Mintz is an absolute quote machine

  • The Syracuse offense, transition game vs. halfcourt
  • The boo birds came out in game three
  • Previewing Maui and the Tennessee matchup
