Welcome to Repeal Day!

Repeal Day celebrates the day that brought the Twenty-first Amendment into effect, after the final state needed to ratify it did so. The amendment repealed the Eighteenth Amendment, which had prohibited the production, transportation, and sale of alcohol. Although December 5 has long since been known as "repeal day," it was not officially celebrated as such until mixologist, bartender, and writer Jeffrey Morgenthaler shared his idea for the day in 2006. He believed it was appropriate to have a holiday celebrating the drinking of alcohol on the date, since the date had more of a direct connection to drinking than holidays such as St. Patrick's Day and Cinco de Mayo—days when drinking is quite popular. He also thought it made sense because it celebrated something that was protected by the Constitution of the United States. Furthermore he believed it was a day that anyone in the United States could celebrate, that the date fit nicely between the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays, and that it could be easily celebrated by simply having a drink. The day has since become a registered trademark of The Museum of the American Cocktail.

Syracuse basketball defeats Northeastern 72-49: Brent Axe recap (PS; Axe)

A Win is a Win?

Coaches are never satisfied, so it was no surprise to hear Syracuse University men's basketball coach Jim Boeheim say the following after his team's 72-49 win over Northeastern Tuesday night at the Carrier Dome.
"We've got a lot of work to do and we're a long ways from where we would like to be at this time,'' Boeheim said. "You always want to get better anyway, but we're a long ways from where we would want to be right now. We're not even close to where we would like to be right now. It shows. It's the little things that happen out there. We've got to overcome them and we've got to get better out there.''
Boeheim was speaking mostly about the lack of offense from his point guard Frank Howard, but you could see where some of his hesitation comes from elsewhere.
For the second straight game, the Orange offense was a two-man show with Elijah Hughes (17) pairing with Oshae Brissett (21) to combine for 38 points with Tyus Battle having a rare off night on offense.
The Orange held Northeastern to a season-low 49 points, but Boeheim brushed that off as the Huskies simply missing a lot of shots in the second-half.
Just five non-conference games remain for Syracuse (Georgetown, Old Dominion, Buffalo, Arkansas State, St. Bonaventure) and the boss doesn't think the Orange are where they are supposed to be.
He sees the ACC slate approaching and feels the Orange needs a spark.


Syracuse Basketball: Bi-polar Orange dominate Northeastern (itlh.com; Adler)

The Syracuse basketball squad, in besting Northeastern, demonstrated the same level of skill that it had in conquering Ohio State a week ago.

I simply can’t figure this SU hoops team out.

The ‘Cuse got smoked by Connecticut and Oregon in New York City last month. Then, following the return of senior point guard Frank Howard, Syracuse picked up a signature success at nationally ranked Ohio State.


This past weekend, SU barely got by Central New York neighbor Cornell, in a showing that head coach Jim Boeheim said he couldn’t even stomach watching.

Finally, on Tuesday evening inside the Carrier Dome, the ‘Cuse collected a strong performance versus a legit unit in Northeastern, with the Orange crushing the Huskies, 72-49.

Instant Juice: Syracuse 72, Northeastern 49 - The Juice Online (the juice; Cheng)

A quick take on Syracuse’s 72-49 win over Northeastern on Tuesday night at the Carrier Dome:

WHAT HAPPENED: With 3:57 left in the first half, an Anthony Green dunk made it 26-23. From there, the Orange went on a 9-0 run capped by a 3-pointer and a pair of free throws from Oshae Brissett to close the half to take a 35-23 lead into intermission. Brissett’s layup with 7:33 left in the second half gave Syracuse a 57-37 lead, and the Orange was in complete control from there.

ANALYSIS: One game after Syracuse struggled against Cornell, the Orange played one of its better games from both ends of the floor. On offense, SU assisted on 20 of its 26 field goals after coming in having assisted on less than half of its field goals for the season. Syracuse also took care of the ball, turning it over just seven times. Still, the Orange shot 43.3 percent from the field and 9-13 from downtown, fairly pedestrian numbers. Defensively, Syracuse forced the Huskies into 34.0 shooting from the field and 6-28 from distance, stymieing Jordan Roland .The guard came in averaging 15.9 points per game, but finished with nine points on 3-13 shooting (2-11 from downtown).

College basketball: Brissett paces Syracuse’s victory against Northeastern (watertowndailytimes.com; St Croix)

Oshae Brissett delivered a dominant inside performance, and Elijah Hughes bounced back in style to help the Syracuse University men’s basketball team overcome a rare off night from star shooting guard Tyus Battle on Tuesday.
Brissett posted team highs with a double-double of 21 points and 17 rebounds, Hughes added 17 points on 6-for-11 shooting, and the Orange captured a 72-49 victory over Northeastern with a crowd of 20,416 on hand at the Carrier Dome.
Battle was held to a season-low two points for SU (6-2 overall), which won its fourth straight game ahead of Saturday’s nationally-televised clash against former Big East rival Georgetown, slated for 3:30 p.m. in the Carrier Dome.
“I tried to do anything to get us a win and not just a win but to win comfortably,” Brissett said. “I felt like going in there and grabbing those rebounds was something I needed to do to keep the energy up on the team and that helped us on the defensive end.”

Brissett continued to carry the load for SU in a team-high 33 minutes — finishing 7 of 15 from the field and 5 of 6 from the free throw line with a pair of 3-pointers — and hauled in seven offensive rebounds to help SU score 19 second-chance points.
Over his last three games, the sophomore forward has made 16 of 30 shots and connected on a pair of 3-pointers in each outing.
“I feel like I’ve been improving game-in and game-out, going back and watching film and seeing where I can be better every game is something that I’ve been doing, finding ways to get those easy buckets,” Brissett said. “I know once the season gets harder, it’s going to be a lot harder to score when we play teams like (North Carolina) and Duke, so I just want to stay grounded and know where to go.”

ACC Roundup - Not An Impressive Tuesday (dbr; King)

As we said earlier, the ACC teams that played Tuesday night almost all had a chance at being upset or losing.
Providence took BC into overtime and won, Clemson barely beat 2-6 St. Peter’s at home 65-60, Oklahoma lassoed Notre Dame 85-80 and Miami fell to last place in the Ivy after losing to Penn 89-75 after having lost to Princeton last time out.

Only Syracuse had an impressive night, and that’s relative considering the opponent, beating 4-5 Northeastern 72-49.
If Boston College could have stopped a late three, the Eagles would have beaten PC but consider this: despite losing Jerome Robinson, a lottery pick in this past summer’s draft, the Eagles are still competitive and have found useful young players in Wynston Tabbs and Jairus Hamilton. However they are young and combined for 10 of BC’s 16 turnovers.

Senior Jordan Chatman led the way in this one though, with 28 on 8-12 from the floor. Tabbs had 17 and Hamilton 13.
All that said, BC might have won if Ky Bowman hadn’t gotten into foul trouble. Chatman played 44 minutes and Steffon Mitchell played 45. Presumably Bowman would have done the same if he hadn’t gotten into foul trouble.

Why Syracuse needs Tyus Battle to continue to attack the rim - ACCSports.com (accsports.com; Geisinger)

After some lofty preseason expectations, there was some unease around Syracuse in the middle of November. Non-conference games before the December solstice don’t usually make or break a season, but in back-to-back losses over UConn and Oregon, Syracuse slumped offensively.


In both of those games, Syracuse scored under one point possession and shot just 37.6 percent from the field (44-of-117 FGA) and 22 percent (11-of-50 3PA) from beyond the arc. The Orange also assisted on only 50 percent of its field goals in that stretch, too.

Tyus Battle works the engine room for Syracuse’s offense. Without Frank Howard in those two defeats, Battle was tasked with doing even more. It didn’t go great, either; Battle shot just 11-of-27 from the field (40.7 FG%, 42.6 eFG%).

Since then, however, Battle has caught fire — getting to the rim and hitting his spot-up looks from deep. For whatever it’s worth, that coincided with the return of Howard. Over the last three games, Battle has passed the ball less and shot more — 23.3 points points per game (65 FG%, 72.7 3P%). As a result, he was named ACC Player of the Week.

For the season, Battle is playing an efficient brand of basketball. His sub-10 percent turnover rate is solid for a high-usage wing, and he’s getting to the free throw line a bunch, too, which is big. Battle averaged 10.5 free throw attempts — up from 8.6 last season — and just 2.2 turnovers per 100 possessions.

Spot-up Game
As freshman back in the 2016-17 season, Battle was a productive second-side offensive player. Playing next to John Gillon, Andrew White III and Tyler Lydon, Battle posted a usage rate of 18.2 percent. That year, the majority of his field goal attempts (56 percent) came from beyond the arc, too.
Now as the lead dog for the Orange on offense, Battle spends way more time at the rim or in the midrange — less than 25 percent of his field goal attempts are of the three-point variety.
