Syracuse men’s basketball: Jim Boeheim 1⁄4 zip tracker update

Numbers don’t lie

NCAA Basketball: Virginia at Syracuse Rich Barnes-USA TODAY Sports

We’ve got a few days in between Syracuse Orange basketball games so this is a good time to check in on some of our analytics.

The Orange have six games left in the regular season and here’s where the team stands based on what the coaches are wearing on the sideline

It’s interesting that the 15 wins break out evenly over the three colors. Just like the team, Jim is hesitant to wear the better-looking script options.

With the Orange needing to finish the season on a winning streak, it’s clear which looks need to get the call. For home games, it’s the white crewneck1/4 zip that we see above. You can’t ignore the 5-1 record and with four more Dome games the Orange have to go with what’s working this year.

There are only two remaining road games so that means this two-tone blue shirt is getting the nod. The 3-1 road record will be put to the test at Clemson and Pitt, but any NCAA hopes the Orange have left hinge on grabbing a strong win away from the Dome.

Sorry grey script. We think you’re fine for a casual Friday in the office, but not for a critical late-season game.
