Video: Jerami Grant’s Huge Poster Dunk Against Western Michigan

Jerami Grant

You have to feel bad for Shayne Whittington. In Syracuse’s easy 77-53 win against Western Michigan, Jerami Grant was dunking all over the place, finishing with 16 points in just 29 minutes.

A Breakdown Of 7 Major Conference Tournaments

T.J. Warren

Many may argue conference tournament week is better than the first weekend of the NCAA Tournament. Every team in the country still has an opportunity of making the Dance at the start of the week, but as the days go by, more and more dreams are crushed. Teams have to win three, four and sometimes five straight games in as many days to claim an automatic bid in the field of 68. Read More »

C.J. Fair: Making The Most Of His Final College Season

C.J. Fair

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. Fair had been tightly clenching a dream, one that wanted to be desperately ended by a surging Wolfpack squad that didn’t fly into central New York until the late afternoon. The impending snowstorm kept both teams chilled. Fair couldn’t buy a bucket. Read More »

NBA GM Says He’d Take Tyler Ennis Over Kyrie Irving

Tyler Ennis, Gerry McNamara

We knew Syracuse freshman Tyler Ennis was good, and preternatural when it came to what you want in a team’s point guard, but a recent revelation by ESPN’s Chad Ford jumped out at us because it toes the line of hyperbole. Still, the more we thought about it, the more it kind of makes sense. An unnamed NBA GM told Ford that Ennis is doing so well for No. 1 ranked Syracuse, they’d take him ahead of 2-time All-Star Kyrie Irving. You read that right. Read More »
