Syracuse game

Hey guys I'm a Syracuse fan and I would just like to know about your team this year what players to watch for etc
Also what are your predictions on this game thanks and good luck on your season

SU, we lost our best player and point guard Austin Tillotson to graduation... rest of the team is pretty much back.  If we can replace Austin we should be a competitive Patriot League team... no real center but some pretty good size and some pretty good shooters.  Preseason predictions have us behind Lehigh/Bucknell/BU in the PL, but who knows?  I like our coach and the players seem to buy into his program.

To your specific questions, I doubt there's anyone on our squad you need to worry about & Cuse should win the game handily.  That's why it's first on the schedule, and whereas in football I might be able to dream up a situation where we're competitive I don't see it on the hardwood.

How do you see your team?  Lots of us root for the Orange (at least in hoops) when we're not playing each other!

We have an all American candidate in Tyler lydon he will play the 3,4 and 5 for us we picked up a couple transfers in Andrew white from Nebraska and John gillon from Colorado state Andrew white plays the 2 and the 3 for us he's 6'7 he's a tremendous shooter made 41% from 3 last season. John gillon is out shortest player at 6'0 he's our backup point guard quick can get into the lane shoots it pretty well our starting point Frank Howard great court vision he wasn't a good shooter last season but he's improved in that area. Our starting 4 man Tyler Roberson great rebounder can score in the paint really not anywhere else we have a 7'2 center coming off the bench very raw but could block shots just from his height and length. tyus battle is our backup 2 might be our best player great in transition and getting to the basket his weakness was supposed to be shooting but it seems like that's not a weakness no more he's 6'6 and very strong we think we have a top 10 team and a good chance to get to the final 4 and thanks for your response gate good luck!!

Looks like SU will have a fine team. Forum Index -> Basketball
