SU's recruiting class is considered among the best in the country.

Syracuse men's basketball head coach Jim Boeheim has announced that four players have signed National Letters of Intent to play for the Orange next season, SU Athletics said in a press release Monday.

Moustapha Diagne, Malachi Richardson, Tyler Lydon and Franklin Howard have committed to SU for at least one academic year. The class is ranked fourth by ESPN.com and eighth by Scout.com.

Strong performance in paint sparks the SU offense in easy victory.

Syracuse forward Michael Gbinije drained a jumper and drew a foul with only two seconds left on the shot clock late in the second half to give the No. 23 Orange a 13-point lead over the Hampton Pirates. 

The 22,848 fans at the Carrier Dome erupted, but it was one of the few times during Sunday’s game they were able to do so.

An explosive fast-break attack helps the Orange overcome another slow shooting performance.

When the shots simply weren’t falling, No. 23 Syracuse turned to its signature 2-3 zone for the spark it needed in a 89-42 thumping of Kennesaw State Friday night at the Carrier Dome. 

With only four buckets in 18 attempts from the field, SU struggled to get its wheels turning in the first 10 minutes, allowing the Owls to stick around early.

But as turnover followed turnover, a stout Orange defense paved the way for numerous fast-break opportunities that, before long, built a huge lead and got the offense humming on all cylinders.

Despite poor shooting, the Orange cruised past Adrian in its final tuneup game.

As the second half began and the announced 7,680 fans rose to their feet, No. 23 Syracuse was nursing an unexpectedly low 13-point lead over D-III Adrian. Still, it was right on the doorstep of breaking the game open 

Twelve minutes later, it had busted the door off its hinges. 

Behind an impressive 23-0 run to begin the latter period, the Orange rolled to an easy 84-35 victory over the Bulldogs at the Carrier Dome on Monday night in its final exhibition contest of the preseason.

SU mounts a second-half comeback as new offensive weapons emerge.

After a disappointing conclusion to a once-promising 2013-2014 campaign, standout performances by two of No. 24 Syracuse’s marquee freshmen gave Orange fans plenty of reason to celebrate again Sunday afternoon at the Carrier Dome. 

SU trailed by double digits early on, but seized momentum in the second half behind the play of Kaleb Joseph and fellow frosh Chris McCullough en route to a hard-fought 76-68 victory over Carleton.

The event featured scrimmages by both SU squads, along with a Legends Game, dunk contest, three-point contest and "selfie stations."

While Syracuse’s annual Orange Madness celebration didn’t feature Drake warming up on the court, there was certainly a lot of excitement at the Carrier Dome on Friday night. 

Men’s basketball coach Jim Boeheim came out for introductions in a Humvee. Former Syracuse forward John Wallace proved that, even at 40 years old, he can still throw down a dunk. And 10-year-old Nicholas Trivelpiece made a shot in the final seconds of the men’s scrimmage game.

SU hoops battles Bears, men's soccer receives votes and volleyball spikes across campus.

Syracuse will have to repeat some of its Maui magic to win the 2014 2K Classic.

The Orange's first opponent in the annual men's basketball tournament will be the California Golden Bears on Nov. 20, according to a Wednesday press release from Syracuse Athletics. Madison Square Garden will play host to the game, which is scheduled to tip-off at approximately 9 p.m.

The Orange will prepare for the 2014-15 season with home tilts against both schools.

Syracuse continues to await its full schedule for the 2014-15 season, but the Orange's final tune-ups are officially set.

According to Syracuse Athletics, Jim Boeheim and Co. will take the court for two exhibition games in the Carrier Dome on Nov. 2 and 10 against Carleton (Canada) and Adrian (Mich.), respectively.

The long-time Big East foes have agreed to a four-year, home-and-home series starting in 2015-16.

On Feb. 23, 2013, more than 35,000 fans packed the Carrier Dome to see Georgetown invade Jim Boeheim Court for one final time in Big East play.

But apparently not even conference realignment can keep the Orange and Hoyas apart.

The sophomore forward joins Tyler Ennis as SU's underclassmen in the draft.

Yet another piece of Syracuse’s 2013-2014 men’s basketball puzzle decided to leave the program, as Jerami Grant officially announced his decision to enter the NBA draft Monday.
