It’s all fun and games until someone loses an eye

But nobody lost an eye tonight, therefore it was indeed all fun and games.
Credit to Monmouth for coming out strong early and keeping the game close, giving SU a few haymakers of their own to start with. They are quick and looked well-prepared to handle the press (most of the time) and were not afraid [...]

Dome sweet Dome

What a refreshing feeling to be back in the Carrier Dome once again to witness some Syracuse basketball in person. I was in attendance at the Cincinnati football game, but that experience just doesn’t measure up to watching my #1 favorite sporting squad of all time in action.
Let’s get to the personal highlight of [...]

Matt Tomaszewski is the next Elvir Ovcina

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. Matt is a 6′8″ dude who launches threes whenever he gets the opportunity. The main difference is that Tomaszewski is three-for-three this season, whereas Elvir was more of a 25% guy. Between Nick “Trick Shot” Resavy and Big Matty T, it looks like our walk-ons are [...]

They are merely Fair Waiters, not great ones

Six games in and the puns have been laid on thick already when it comes to C J Fair. The ridiculous dunk last night led to a bunch of “Man, that was just unFair” and other obvious blobs of text. I thought to myself “I’m still waiting for the Waiters puns to start flying.” (For [...]

Unconcern

Well I am always happy to be wrong. That was a nice thorough beatdown of a team that is a legit opponent. Not quite mid-major, but tournament-worthy and not at all a pushover. The zone looks like it is going to be an absolute menace this year. I loved how active it was. Even when [...]

Just amazing

My god. That was fucking historical.

It would have been fitting

Was I the only one hoping that K-Ong would finish his final home game in the most appropriate way — by fouling out? After that double-technical, as a result of which he picked up his fourth, I figured it was only a matter of time. But JB sat him down with about five minutes left. [...]

Halftime: Colgate 13, Paul Harris 13

(Oh, yeah. And Syracuse has 30 other points, too.)
Harris, and his rubberbanded afro, had a field day out there early in the game, taking the opportunity to pad the stats a little and shooting 6 for 8.
It’s nice to see Justin Thomas get some playing time. He’s missed some chances to take shots, opting instead to distribute the [...]

Let the Countdown Begin

Depending on your “official start date” of choice:

30 days until Midnight Madness at Manley
41 days until the first exhibition game, against Stevie Thompson
54 days until the regular season opens with the CBE Classic (opponent TBA)

To honor the 30-day ticking clock, we here at Cuse Country have come up with the top 30 reasons to get [...]

Hoops Practice Video

Hey all. The Post-Standard has posted an interesting video “collage” of SU’s monday practice.

My favorite part is about halfway through when we see Eric Devendorf clearly practicing to win a Dunk N Bright recliner at a future Dome game.
