Syracuse Orange Basketball 2014-2015 News and Updates
12/12/14 - Syracuse Orange basketball coach, Jim Boeheim, did not play man to man in last Saturday's game to St. John. Over the course of his 39-year tenure at Syracuse, the coach rarely made changes to his starting lineup, unless facilitated by a suspension or injury. In the team's loss to St. John, Boeheim altered the lineup by taking out B.J. Johnson and putting in Michael Gbinije. Having been a starter in the three previous games, it was a shock to see Johnson taken out. It will be interesting to see if the coach keeps the new starting lineup, or changes it back. The change did not immediately help the team, who lost to St. John 69-57. The coach and team have high hopes in getting back on track at their next game, beginning at 4 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 14, in the Carrier Dome in Syracuse, N.Y.
