    No. 11 Syracuse shot just 32.7% in their loss to N.C. State, the sixth time in the last eight games that the Orange have failed to shoot at least 40%. That’s an issue entering the NCAA tournament.

  3. No. 4 Syracuse holds off Maryland

    Syracuse doesn’t necessarily have the offensive game to blow out unranked opponents, but the No. 4 Orange are used to winning tight games. Jim Boeheim’s ballclub bounced back from Saturday’s loss to Duke to knock off Maryland 57-55 on Monday for an ACC road win. The Orange gave up a late run to Maryland and…

    1. Doug McDermott, Creighton: What else can be said about McDermott’s season — and his career — at this point? He had 26 points on 11-for-19 shooting in a win at Butler in which he just so happened to hit the game-winning three with 47.8 seconds left. He followed that up by scoring 39 points…

    Another close game for No. 1 Syracuse, and another escape with an unblemished record. The Orange did it again on Saturday night, with a C.J. Fair layup with 6.7 seconds remaining giving Syracuse a 56-55 win over an N.C. State team that didn’t reach New York until early Saturday due to travel issues. Of Syracuse’s…

    In the history of the Petersen Events Center, No. 25 Pittsburgh had never lost a game against a top five opponent. Nine games, nine wins for the Panthers. And on Wednesday night it looked as if Jamie Dixon’s Panthers would make it 10-0, with their mastery of the offensive glass being a big reason why…

    With five of their last eight regular season games away from the friendly confines of the Carrier Dome, No. 1 Syracuse will have some challenges to face in their quest to win the ACC regular season title in their debut season in the conference. Thus far Jim Boeheim’s team has risen to every challenge, with…

    PLAYER OF THE WEEK: C.J. Fair, Syracuse C.J. Fair played his best game of the season in the biggest game of the year. The 6-foot-8 senior went for 28 points and five boards as Syracuse knocked off Duke in overtime at the Carrier Dome, a win that gave them a three-game lead in the ACC over…

  9. No. 2 Syracuse beats No. 17 Duke in the Game of the Year

    Duke v Syracuse

    “We’ve had a lot of games in here that have been great, but there’s never been a game as good as this one.” That’s what Syracuse head coach Jim Boeheim told Shannon Spake after the No. 2 Orange knocked off No. 17 Duke, which is a strong statement but one that Boeheim could very well…

    Syracuse Miami

    No. 2 Syracuse kicked off their tenure in the ACC on Saturday afternoon, taking on Miami (FL) in the Carrier Dome. It was anything but pretty. Miami did everything they could to make the game as slow and as ugly as possible. They never sent more than two guys to the offensive glass in an…

  11. No. 2 Syracuse hosts No. 8 Villanova in a battle of undefeated teams

    When Syracuse announced its decision to move to the ACC back in September 2012, there were a couple match-ups that the program hoped would carry over as non-conference games. The Orange set up home-and-home series with St. John’s and Villanova, and at some point (we hope) they’ll resume on-court hostilities with Georgetown. On Saturday afternoon…

    Syracuse blew out High Point on Friday evening, 75-54. If you can believe it, however, High Point actually led Syracuse early in the second half, 40-39. The Orange would then go on a 28-3 run. Midway through the run, C.J. Fair did this. Follow @KLDoyle11

    Syracuse v Marquette

    C.J. Fair put down one of the better dunks of the year against Minnesota today in the quarterfinals of the Maui Invitational, and he took a shot in the face to prove it. Fair was bloodied on the dunk — no foul was called — and he still finished in traffic to help Syracuse to…

    GAME OF THE DAY: Syracuse escaped with a 56-50 win over St. Francis (NY) as they scored the go-ahead bucket in the final minute thanks to Michael Gbinije.

    St Francis v Syracuse

    No. 9 Syracuse forced turnovers on back-to-back set plays out of timeouts and scored the final ten points as they survived an upset bid from St. Francis NY on Monday night. The final score was 56-50, but in all honesty, the Orange are lucky that they were in striking distance down the stretch. That’s how…
