Coming into Saturday’s matchup with North Carolina State, Syracuse was a frigid wasteland. The historic Carrier Dome was a towering, unyielding, concrete icebox.
For 39 minutes, the Orange and stud senior C.J.

The last time we were supposed to have some type of world basketball tour, we had denials and confirmations, we had a long list of All-Stars agreeing on playing, we had a schedule and we had the first night all planned out.

We just want to see one of these ideas come to fruition. Too many heartbreaks and cancellations this year … Read More »

Deron Williams is now officially a member of the Besiktas basketball club, tweeting that he signed his contract and is headed to Turkey. This will continue to be one funny summer; We won’t believe any of this until we actually see it, until someone like Williams actually puts on another jersey and suits up. We’re skeptical … While that’s some pretty significant news, there’s perhaps an even bigger splash making the rumor rounds. Read More »
