Incoming freshman Jonny Flynn and Donte' Greene are expected to contribute to a team who is looking to getback in the NCAA's after not being chosen in the field of 65.

#1 Andy Rautins (Medical Redshirt) (Junior)


#2 Justin Thomas (Junior)


#5 Donte' Greene (Freshman)

#42 Ryan Cahak (Senior)


#45 Sean Williams (Freshman)


Preseason Top 25
#18

EDIT:
"> Midnight Madness was crazy! The crowd was electric andappreciated the output by the players. The girls played good (Erica Morrow is going to be a problem) but the men stole the show. When Arinze Onuaku broke thebackboard the crowd went @#%$ insane! Boeheim was pissed
"> . They rana half court scrimmage then ended with a dunk contest. Bill Raftery and Pearl Washington were also at the event. Expect to see the backboard highlight onSportsCenter tomorrow.

Sorry for the picture quality, I took them with my phone.

I was there and I must say that glass shattering dunk by AO was out of control. I also see a lot of hunger in the team this year especially from the young guys. The energy they all seem to have is awesome Very pumped for this upcoming season.

Last week was homecoming weekend. Gym Class Heroes and the Pack performed so the school assumed that Midnight Madness wouldn't have been a success.

Damn, i wish i could have gone so bad. I had to go to my high school sectional game. I am sure it was crazy up in Manley field house.

My problem with Syracuse basketball right now: If they had 10 wins in the Big East, but didn't get in due to the weak non-conference schedule, why not beef up the non-conferece schedule this time around? It's really week and they could have the same problem again if they don't take care of the Big East this year.

I hope Flynn and Harris make big leaps this year.

My lil man Johnny :pimp:


Questions: How did he look out there running the offense? Did he kill Josh Wright?, I expect him too. Did Paul shoot any J's and if so how were they looking ?

I will be in attendance when they play Depaul :pimp:

Well your arena is amazing, but can you old 33,000 for a game? There is nothing better then going to a record braking game, espically when you have good seats.

But props to your new arena it looks nice.

What the schedule doesn't show is the game(s) we will play at MSG for the NIT tip off. We will end up playing at least 1 top tier team....A&M, Ohio St, etc to go along with the game @UVA later in the season. The out of conference schedule is not bad at all.

er, I know that he'll be starting for most if not the entire season if he avoids his turnover problems. Boeheim is not going to throw Flynn into the fire and destroy any confidence he has.

I'd say Wright starts to begin the season and Flynn takes over the starting role about 10 games in. Josh just hasn't improved enough at his time at Cuse. I remember the talk about him when he first came to school..everyone thought dude would be so nice...

watching Ball 2 years ago my dude....

Relax Gottlieb Jr. The OOC schedule has quality opponents this year. No bubble talks for us GUARANTEED.

Not to mention we play in a major conference that actually has quality opponents....(not the little 10)

Honestly, that's the last thing Boehiem should worry about. Johnny isn't soft by any means, and actually he relishes the opportunity to prove himself at every level. I've been watching him play for 4yrs and he's built for that type of pressure trust me.
