'Cuse has some talented young blood - looking like serious contenders in a couple of years if not sooner. We'll see how they do against OSU.

Maybe - maybe not. Having the wind let out of their sails might wake them up. They took horrific shots and did a lousy job defending and 17 turn overs (mostly unforced) were ridiculous.

they showed their age.. someone put a lid on the basket, plus bad bad shots...I actually think a loss this early might be good for these cocky freshman.. lets see how our H.O.F. coach molds them now.. and lets not forget the opponents were in the BIG dance last year.

I thought they played better tonite but they have got to make those free throws. Up 14 points you put the other team away and keep them away!

Syracuse, NY (AP) -- Three top rated high school basketball players have signed national letters of intent to play at Syracuse next season, the school announced Tuesday.

Mookie Jones, Kris Joseph and James Southerland are all forwards and make up a recruiting class that is ranked among the top 30 nationally.

Jones, 6-foot-6, is from Peekskill and is a member of the three-time defending Class A champion Peekskill Red Devils. As a junior last season, he averaged 22.6 points and 11 rebounds. Rivals.com has rated Jones as the 40th best player in the nation in the 2008 recruiting class.

The 6-foot-7 Joseph is ranked No. 41 overall by Scout.com after averaging 18.8 points and 5.0 assists a game last season for Archbishop Carroll High School in Washington, D.C. -- the high school alma mater of Orange all-time leading scorer Lawrence Moten. He is the younger brother of Michigan State sophomore Maurice Joseph.

Southerland, 6-foot-7, is from Bayside and this year is attending Notre Dame Prep in Fitchburg, Mass., the same prep school as current Syracuse players Paul Harris and Sean Williams. Last season, Southerland averaged 22.5 points and 11.3 rebounds a game for Cardozo High School in the Queens.

It's so predictable when you rely on freshen as much as this team does. Nobody wants to play defense cuz they don't recognize its value yet. They still believe they can just light it up on the offensive end and still win.

But man, they're fun to watch. This is the type of team that JB can do wonders with-but I'd hate to have to deal with his practice sessions this coming week! That zone will work itself into a pretty formidable weapon by mid-season. We've got the size again to be effective with it.....

I thought the Ohio State game was worse. Pathetic shooting. And where was Devendorf? I don't know about anybody else, but I've never been impressed by that kid.

"Hey! A Syracuse center can score!
Posted by Mike Waters November 30, 2007 11:01AM

OK, OK, I know that just about everybody who played in Wednesday's Syracuse-UMass no-defense-allowed game scored a ton of points, but what SU center Arinze Onuaku accomplished still deserves a mention.

Arinze Onuaku didn't get this tip to go in against UMass, but he did do something that no Syracuse center had accomplished in almost eight years.Onuaku, a redshirt sophomore, scored a career-high 20 points on 7-for-10 field goal shooting and 6-for-12 free throw shooting. It was the first time a Syracuse center had scored 20 or more points since the 1999-2000 season.
The last time a center scored more than 20 points was on Feb. 16, 2000, when Etan Thomas had 21 against Pittsburgh. Let that sink in for a moment.

Since Thomas graduated in 2000, Syracuse has had four primary players start at center. Jeremy McNeil's high was six points, which he did twice. Billy Celuck had 10 points in a game on two occasions. Craig Forth started from 2001-02 through the 2004-05 season. His career high was 18, coming against Missouri on Jan. 12, 2004.

And Darryl Watkins, the starting center for the last two seasons, had a career high of 18 as well. His 18-point game came against St. Bonaventure on Dec. 30, 2006.

Syracuse sports information director Pete Moore gets the assist for looking up those numbers."

LOL!

the problem i have with syracuse, roared it's ugly head again the other night, is when they have a lead late in the game (i think they were up like 83-80 at the time) they are still pumping 3's like they are trying to get back in the game, why not work it in low and make a 2 and get back on defense...the player shooting the 3 never follows his shot any more, so there fore they don't get the rebound...just pathetic, no disaplin(sp?)

It was a weak defensive night, a one and done offense that luckily made some key threes. I love the 6'11" three point killer! Luckily their all American senior was ill and had an off night, or those four (or five ) missed charity balls would have put them on top. jmo.
