Having defeated Providence, SU now has 16 wins on the season. Though I may be tempting the sports gods, I feel fairly confident in saying that the Orange will win at least one more game this year. Once they reach that 17-win mark, they will have assured themselves of another winning season. This means that Syracuse is about to extend their historic streak of winning seasons:
This will be SU’s 42nd consecutive winning season. Not only is this the longest active streak, it is the 2nd-longest all time behind UCLA’s record. You want consistent success? Here it is. The streak started under Ray Danforth in 1970; Boeheim has never had a losing season, or even a .500 season.
Who knows if they will reach or surpass the Bruins in the years to come (Hopkins!), but still. Why nobody else talks about this is beyond me. Perhaps someone ought to get on the phone with Pete Moore and tell him to stick this in the media guide. Look, there’s plenty of room.

Now, how difficult was that? Come on, get in the game people.
