Pro Update - Kiwi Edition (Feb 2012)

Josh Pace is back in the land of sheep and hobbits!
Pace has signed on with the Manawatu Jets for the 2012 New Zealand basketball season. After leading the Hawkes Bay Hawks (seriously) to a runner-up finish in last season’s championship, Josh will join former Duke center Nick Horvath on the Jets this year. They brought [...]

Whither Matt Gorman?? (Pro Update 1-7-11)

Sad but true. Matt “Matty-boy” Gorman is no longer playing professional basketball, at least not at the moment. He was not re-signed by the Sheffield Sharks for 2010-11, and there is no record of him playing for, or even signing with, another team. Yet.
But, who from Syracuse is still playing pro hoops, whether in this [...]

The Johnsoning Begins (and other bits of Orange)

We are less than a month away from Syracuse basketball’s first exhibition game, and the energy in these parts is, if not palpable, then at least noticeable as a sort of background hum. Kutztown will face Orange wrath soon enough. But there are some other things that you need to know. We’ll run them down [...]

We know you’re wondering (Pro Wrapup 2010)

Derelict. Derelict in our duties. That is the only phrase that can describe what has happened here at Cuse Country. There has been a ridiculous span of time that has passed since we last checked in with former Orangemen around the globe. Entire seasons were played during that time. While we did recently give you [...]

Pro Update 4-22-10 (Playoff primer edition)

Happy Earth Day everybody! We will celebrate by spanning the globe, checking in on SU alums playing ball far and near, all while leaving a minuscule carbon footprint. (Because my laptop runs on wishes and moonbeams.) This edition features a Matt Gorman resurgence in England, Terrence Roberts speaking out in Japan, and Preston Shumpert setting [...]

Look who’s back in action! (Pro Update 3-6-10)

This past Wednesday, Etan Thomas saw his first NBA action since December 4. The Thunder were in the midst of getting clobbered by the Nuggets (final margin was 29, but the Denver lead was above 40 points at times during the game) and Scott Brooks saw fit to give E some burn. Thomas entered with [...]

Ah the sweet taste of freedom (Pro Update 2-21-10)

Guess who’s out on work-release!

That’s right, kids, it’s our old pal Damone Brown. His felony money-laundering charge, as far as I can tell via the internet, has not gone to trial or been otherwise resolved yet, but in the meantime he’s out of jail and playing ball in his hometown. Damone signed on with the [...]

Who do you love?? (Pro Update 1-21-10)

So I spent the end of my last post getting all concerned about the challenge of SU facing Marquette, and they go and lay a steaming pile against DePaul last night, letting the Blue Demons finally end their 24-game Big East losing streak. I guess you never know in this business.
Anyway. Much has happened in [...]

Pro Update 1-11-10

Welcome to 2010 everyone! It’s been a long hard slog through the autumn months. Loads of stuf has continued to crop up and prevent me from doing what I love — that is, scraping the farthest corners of the internet for crumbs of information about former Syracuse basketball players who are now making their living [...]

Rumblings and stumblings in the pro ranks

Basketball season is nigh. Nigh I say! And while the official Cuse Country SU Hoops Season Preview Special won’t be ready for a little while longer, there has been a lot going on with the SU alums in the NBA and elsewhere that you ought to know about while prepping yourself for tomorrow night’s Midnight [...]
