After mixed results in Hawaii, Syracuse back home to face LSU

Syracuse’s recent trip to Hawaii may have produced disappointing results early on, but the Orange certainly ended their visit on a high note. The Orange walloped Division II Chaminade in their final game of the Maui Invitational, and they hope that momentum carries into Tuesday’s home game against LSU. Syracuse (4-2) lost to Tennessee and Gonzaga by a combined 36 points in their first two games in Hawaii last week. However, in their final contest

Syracuse, Chaminade down to last chance for tourney win

Syracuse and host school Chaminade would like to end their Maui Invitational experience with a victory. Winless through two contests apiece, they will face each other Wednesday in the seventh-place game in Honolulu, which is hosting the tournament as Maui recovers from the devastating wildfire that hit Lahaina in August. The Orange (3-2), after dropping a 73-56 decision to No. 7 Tennessee on Monday, fell 76-57 against No. 11 Gonzaga on Tuesday. Judah Mintz totaled

After firing, Syracuse eyes bowl eligibility vs. Wake Forest

Dino Babers finally ran out of chances at Syracuse, and Wake Forest’s Dave Clawson might not be far behind. Six days after firing their coach, the Orange will host the Demon Deacons on Saturday in the regular-season finale for both teams. Babers posted two winning seasons in eight years at Syracuse and just watched his team collapse following a 4-0 start in non-conference action. The Orange (5-6, 1-6 ACC) have lost six of seven games

Syracuse, No. 11 Gonzaga seek to bounce back in Honolulu

Gonzaga coach Mark Few is no stranger to a box score. Few quickly assessed the reasons the 11th-ranked Bulldogs lost Monday in the first round of the Maui Invitational — and he hopes to correct those issues Tuesday when Gonzaga takes on Syracuse in Honolulu. Gonzaga (2-1) took its first defeat Monday against No. 2 Purdue as the Boilermakers rallied from a five-point halftime deficit to top the Bulldogs 73-63. Few’s team shot just 6

No. 7 Tennessee surfs into Honolulu for Maui opener with Syracuse

No. 7 Tennessee and Syracuse meet in Honolulu on Monday in the first round of the Maui Invitational. The Volunteers (3-0) won their first three games easily — victories by 38, 10 and 21 points while scoring at least 80 points in all three contests. Tennessee is shooting well from the field (47.2 percent), the 3-point arc (37.8 percent) and the foul line (82.1 percent) with Dalton Knecht leading the way. Knecht averages a team-high

Sixth win at stake for Georgia Tech, Syracuse

With bowl eligibility at stake for both teams, Georgia Tech welcomes Syracuse to Atlanta on Saturday for a critical Atlantic Coast Conference matchup. The Yellow Jackets (5-5, 4-3) recently posted back-to-back wins over then-No. 17 North Carolina and Virginia before getting doubled up by Clemson last weekend 42-21. Georgia Tech came into that game averaging 465 yards of offense but mustered only 254 yards against the Tigers. Haynes King was picked off four times and

Syracuse looks to end two-game series skid vs. Colgate

In an unexpected twist to the Central New York rivalry, Syracuse will try to halt a two-game losing streak to Colgate when the teams meet Tuesday on the Orange’s home court. Syracuse (2-0) had won 54 straight meetings with the Raiders prior to dropping a 100-85 decision in November 2021. Colgate then doubled down by defeating the Orange 80-68 last November, stopping Syracuse coach Jim Boeheim from earning his 1,000th career win in the process.

Syracuse seeking sharper shooting vs. Canisius

Even without Jim Boeheim on the sidelines, his presence was still felt in Syracuse’s season-opening victory. The Orange and their new coach, Adrian Autry, look to post another win Wednesday when they host Canisius. Autry, a former player and assistant under Boeheim, had repeatedly stated his intent to move away from the 2-3 zone defense patented by Boeheim during his 47 seasons at the helm. However, in Monday’s season opener against New Hampshire, Autry switched

Pittsburgh, Syracuse limp into meeting at Yankee Stadium

Pitt and Syracuse have taken a beating in Atlantic Coast Conference play this season, leaving both teams longing for a victory Saturday when they meet at Yankee Stadium in New York City. The Panthers (2-7, 1-4) have lost three straight games, including the last two by a combined margin of 82-14. They fell to Florida State 24-7 last weekend, although the game was tight until the Seminoles scored two touchdowns in the final four minutes

Syracuse begins Adrian Autry era vs. New Hampshire

For the first time in nearly a half-century, Syracuse is beginning a season without coach Jim Boeheim on the sideline. Adrian Autry is now the man in charge of the Orange, who open their season on Monday against visiting New Hampshire. Boeheim stepped down last spring following a 47-season run at Syracuse, where his 2-3 zone defense became a staple of the college basketball scene over the decades. Boeheim’s accolades included five Final Four appearances
