Head Coach Jim Boeheim is looking to Fab Melo, Dion Waiters, C.J. Fair and Baye Moussa Keita to step up.
With Andy Rautins, Wes Johnson and Arinzie Onuaku no longer in the Orange’s starting line up, Syracuse Head Coach Jim Boeheim is looking to the newcomers to contribute. This year’s freshmen are reminiscent of the 2007 freshman class of Scoop Jardine, Donte Greene, Johnny Flynn and Rick Jackson.
Jim Boeheim joins Jonny Flynn and Wes Johson to re-open Schiller Park.
Former Syracuse University basketball stars Jonny Flynn and Wes Johnson will team up with their former coach, Jim Boeheim to re-open the recently renovated basketball court at Schiller Park in Syracuse, according to The Post-Standrd.
The event is open to the public and is scheduled to take place at 2:15 p.m..
Former Orange and current Minnesota Timberwolves’ point guard Jonny Flynn will likely miss the team’s exhibition game at the Carrier Dome on October 15th while recovering from hip surgery. Flynn was expected to team up with rookie and former Orangeman Wes Johnson for the first time on the Dome floor, but will likely not be able to play until November.
Former Syracuse Orange Wesley Johnson goes to the Minnesota Timberwolves as the No. 4 pick, while teammate Andy Rautins heads to the New York Knicks.
Syracuse knew it had a superstar on its hands, and the rest of the country noticed. Wes Johnson was the No. 4 pick last night for the Minnesota Timberwolves, as two of Syracuse Orange's finest were drafted into the NBA, onto bigger and better careers.
Syracuse (30-4) travels to Salt Lake City for its Sweet Sixteen matchup with Butler (30-4). Tip-off is 7:07 p.m. EST.
Syracuse starting forward Rick Jackson getting into foul trouble was the best thing to happen to Syracuse on Sunday afternoon.
With two hands tied behind their backs (the team's other starting forward Arinze Onuaku was inactive with a leg injury), the Orange took a bat to Gonzaga’s pumpkin chariot, and put up 87 points on the Cinderella-turned-NCAA-regular.
"This is as well as we've played all year," said Syracuse head coach Jim Boeheim. "It was a tremendous performance."

The House passed the Senate's health care reform bill last night by a vote of 224 to 206, but Americans shouldn't expect to see changes right away. Before any legislative changes are made, members of the Senate have to sign off on the changes made to the bill on order to address the differences between the Senate and House bills. Senate Republicans maintain they will use any legislative techniques to delay or stop the bill from passing.
Turnovers, defensive woes and a worrying injury troubled the one-seeded Syracuse Orange as they fell to eighth seed Georgetown in the Big East tournament quarterfinals, 91-84.
Two kinds of fans filled Madison Square Garden this afternoon. Half wore Orange, and stood in stunned silence. The other half wore just about anything else, and cheered as loud as they could for the top seed to fall. They got their wish.
Six minutes into the second half, Syracuse watched their lead dwindle from a game high nine points, to one point in under two minutes. And with a 2-point field goal by Vee Sanford, Georgetown took the lead and never lost it.
