Pace is an off-guard (2) that can be used as a small forward (3). Think of Pace's signature move - the left-handed half hook while driving across the lane from about 12 feet. As a forward, he doesn't get that opportunity as much, because he is closer to the baseline. And also consider that Boeheim prefers the long-limbed guys to defend down low in the 2-3 zone. If Pace is a small forward, he gives up a lot of space down low in the zone. This is why Boeheim was quick to plug Nichols into the lineup last year; because of his long arms in the zone, even more than because of his (alleged) outside shooting prowess.

Pace's game is similar to Stevie Thompson, and I don't think we were ever able to figure out what position Thompson played. I think we just call them athletes and leave it at that.

Troy Weaver! I knew someone left. He was a big recruiter for them I think I recall reading.

Thx Jello. I think your right. Gio are you the one who said three positions above? Boeheim kind of said that about McNamara last year. "He's a guard", who can do it all. Kind of a throwback. Maybe that's what Hakim is too. A forward, period. He can do it all.

And I don't think he's one of the top 5 players in the country. I put him in the top 3 !

I look for big things from this team this year. I hope an earlier post about Craig Forth preparing to step up his game this year is true. Been waiting for him for a while now.

Hope Billy E keeps his head screwed on straight. Heard G-Mac talkin about a desire to show that their championship was not a Carmello thing. This kid wants another title badly and if Edelin cooperates and McNamara is allowed to play his game, and Forth becomes a force, and the sophomores step up and X is X....oooooooh BABY!!!!!

p.s. Gio, you ,simple? I'm not that gullible kiddo.

and McNamara stays healthy....remember the last half of the year the kid was playing with a stress fracture in the hip as well as a shoulder that kept dislocating and he was still a force...what will he do at 100% healthy.....

four more days until the first game(yes I know its only exhibition but I still cant wait) anyone else going?

Does anyone know if we are going to get shafted again by Time Warner for the SU games? Do we need to get Jim to start calling TW now?

"The run for a second national championship begins in earnest Thursday for the Syracuse University menís basketball team and Finger Lakes Time- Warner cable subscribers will this year see most of the action from the comfort of their living rooms.
Finger Lakes1.com has learned that once again this year, Time Warner Cable and Rochesterís WB16 WRWB-TV will broadcast eight Syracuse basketball games that are not being carried by CBS or ESPN."

<< two thumbs up, Jelloshot >>

More good news for 'Cuse basketball, Arinze Onuaku, a 6'9" center from Alexandria, Va. picks Syracuse over Maryland, BC, & Georgia! As a junior in highschool, he averaged 14 points and nine rebounds a game.

I found this on the syracuse.com SU forum


76035. Interesting from hoop scoop
by baltorange, 11/10/04 14:00 ET
from clark francis:

Our Ohio Editor Chris Johnson also tells us that 6'9 Arinze Onuaku from Alexandria (Episcopal Academy) VA, who is ranked #178 nationally in the senior class by the HOOP SCOOP, has verbally committed to Syracuse and this is interesting for several reasons. First, Onuaku, who made a name for himself at the adidas Superstar All-American Camp when he finished ranked #12 in camp and #3 at the center position by the HOOP SCOOP, is not a finished product, but he is a pretty good insurance policy, if the Orangemen don't get 6'9 Theo Davis from Bayside (Cardozo) NY. Second, Onuaku is not good enough to scare of Davis, if he does pick the Orangemen. Third, Onuaku also had Maryland, Georgia, Boston College, and Pittsburgh on his list, but with his verbal commitment to Syracuse, Onuaku gives the Orangemen an inside player to go along with the two great guards - 6'2 Tiki Mayben from Troy (H.S.) NY and 6'3 Eric Devendorf from Mouth of Wilson (Oak Hill) VA - that they already have in this recruiting class. Fourth, the addition of Onuaku moves the Syracuse's recruiting class into a tie at #16, along with Pittsburgh, on our list of the Top Recruiting Classes To-Date for the Class of 2005. However, let's say the Orangemen do get Davis and somebody convinces 6'11 Andray Blatche, who originally is from Syracuse (Henninger) NY, but now attends prep school at South Kent (Prep) CT, that he will be making a big mistake if he enters the NBA Draft next spring and, instead, returns home and attends Syracuse for a year or two. Then, we'd be talking about the #3-ranked recruiting class on our list of the Top Recruiting Classes To-Date for the Class of 2005, plus we'd be talking about what would likely be Jim Boeheim's best team ever a year from now. And that's a pretty strong statement when one remembers that Boeheim already has won one NCAA Championship and made two other NCAA Final Four appearances

Why yes it is......

I like this quote from SI.com...Syracuse: Final Four. You know the rest of the Big East is in trouble when the perennially dour Jim Boeheim is expressing rampant optimism. The Orange's matchup zone also makes it an especially tough out in the tourney.

Damn if Jim is smiling now something awesome could be in the cards...
