Welcome to Syracuse School Day!

Syracuse University's 15th-ranked women's basketball team is set to host Niagara (3-6) for its annual School Day game on Monday at 11 a.m. The Orange are 4-0 at home this season and will welcome one of the largest crowds of the year, which will include over 5,000 Central New York-area students from local schools.

Buffalo sinks the Salukis, looks forward to Syracuse (ubbullrun.com; Riordan)

For the second time this season UB has downed the SIU Salukis, and for the second time this season the Salukis made it a close(ish) game.

The night started out with teh two teams trading punches to get to an 8-8 tie, before Nick Perkins anchored a 17-0 UB run and eventually grew their lead to 19 points before the SIU defensive zone started to throw off the Bulls offense while the Salukis’ offense slowly chipped away at the lead.

Before the half was over SIU climbed back to withing two scores, 33-28.

Another big run in the second helped UB to grow that five point lead up to twenty, before once again SIU chipped away while UB’s offense went cold.

Leading 59-39 with 10:26 left Buffalo went more than seven minutes without a field goal. SIU was not lighting up the board either but slowly they worked their way back to within single digits, and then back to within 7 at the 4:18 mark.

UB has two huge games coming up.

Syracuse was ranked #25 in the nation when they lost this weekend to ODU, and Marquette who won and are looking to move into the teens before they face Buffalo.

Heyen: Syracuse’s Tuesday game against Buffalo is a must-win (DO; Heyen)


Tyus Battle wouldn’t admit that Syracuse’s next game matters more than its last. Sitting with his head slumped after SU’s loss to Old Dominion on Saturday, Battle was asked whether the Orange would have to win against undefeated Buffalo in their next game, and whether it was more important considering the upset SU had just allowed.

“It’s always extremely important. We have to just be ready to play,” Battle said.

When Syracuse (7-3) takes on Buffalo (10-0) Tuesday night, the Orange will do so with three nonconference losses already, a total they’ve never reached the NCAA Tournament with. A fourth nonconference loss puts pressure on Syracuse to come close to winning the Atlantic Coast Conference, and that’s a tall order. But a win against the Bulls gives the Orange a second ranked win in nonconference play. All of that adds up to one thing: Tuesday’s game is a must-win for Syracuse.

“They’re ranked so we should be ready to play,” Battle said, “and it’ll be a good win for us.”

In mid-November, when Syracuse lost to UConn at Madison Square Garden for its first loss, multiple Orange players expressed relief that SU could take the floor the next day for a chance to make up for the defeat. They didn’t bounce back the next day, though, and lost by 15 to then-No. 13 Oregon. But that wasn’t a must-win game.

Orange Watch: The pre-conference trials and travails of Syracuse basketball - The Juice Online (the juice; Bierman)

Item: With three games left before ACC play starts an 18 game journey through nationally ranked teams and the challenge of winning on the road in some pretty ly buildings, it’s obvious to Orange Nation that the hoop team could use a few doses of the football team’s secret formula – scoring points.

It’s a completely different atmosphere inside the Dome during the annual couple of games on the Syracuse basketball schedule that occur during the Fall/Spring Semester break.

No student section or band (the local Baldwinsville High School band is annually a terrific fill-in), often times an opponent with no cache to the fan base, in other words a stark contrast to the atmosphere of what the building will resemble when the likes of the Duke, Virginia, and even perhaps the Florida State team buses are parked outside on the loading ramp in the weeks to come.

When Jim Boeheim’s team saw the combined home winning streak with the football team snapped at 12 at semester’s end with its 68-62 loss to Old Dominion last Saturday in front of a “smaller” crowd of 17,585, the spotlight was not on the 62 points SU scored, and the potential 74 it did not, by missing 12 free throws against the Monarchs, but the fact that an unheralded team with a 7-3 record from Conference USA came into the building and took control in the second half to silence those on hand.

“They came out with a lot of intensity (after halftime),” backup point guard Jalen Carey said in a somber ‘Cuse locker room. “Like I’ve been saying, the physicality aspect. We missed a lot of free throws, a lot of 50/50 balls we should have gotten. We just change (a few) things around, we easily win by more than double digits.”

5 things we learned from a loaded college basketball Saturday | NCAA.com (ncaa.com; Boozell)

There may not have been many upsets on Saturday, but plenty of interesting things happened.

Here are five things we learned from Saturday's games.

North Carolina still has as much firepower as anyone

All things considered, this season has probably been pretty frustrating as North Carolina fan. The defense hasn't been great. It feels like the pieces haven't quite meshed.

But boy, are the Tar Heels talented, and they showed it on Saturday against Gonzaga in a 103-90 win. North Carolina went 13-for-25 from 3-point range and shot 54.7 percent on the evening. They just have so many guys who can beat you. Cameron Johnson scored 25 points and made six 3s, while Luke Maye went for 20 points and 16 boards.

...

ACC Roundup - BC Wins While Missing Two Starters (DBR; King)

Only one ACC game Sunday as Boston College beat Farfield 77-67.

Wake up the ghosts! Chris Herren Jr. had 22 points. He’s not expected to be anywhere near the player his dad was but given his dad’s history and struggles, he’s probably glad his son is just healthy and playing.

Ky Bowman shot just 4-17 so it was a good night for Herren to go off.

It was also good because Jordan Chatman is out with an ankle injury and forward Steffon Mitchell has a leg injury as well.

Not surprisingly, BC got nothing from the bench. Well it got two rebounds and one assist but that’s it. Depth may be an issue for BC all season.

Syracuse’s loss to Old Dominion, historically a very minor player in the college basketball world, has not gone over well.

Well at least not in Syracuse. A couple of hours to the south the Buffalo Bulls are preparing for a Tuesday visit to Syracuse and the Bulls will almost certainly be favored.

Annual Tuba Christmas celebrated in Syracuse (photos) (PS; photos; Greenlar)

Over 70 musicians from ages 7 to 70 performed in the annual Tuba Christmas, held this year at North Syracuse Junior High School. The Tuba Christmas was created by Harvey Phillips in 1974. Today, Tuba Christmas concerts are presented in over 290 cities throughout the United States.

This year’s concert was conducted by Michael Coldren and included musicians from all over Central New York. A photographer from Syracuse.com was fortunate to get a behind the scenes look at the rehearsal before the concert. Included in the group of tuba players was Paul Sherman of Fulton who sat front stage left, looking every bit as Saint Nick himself.

Tuba Christmas is a music concert held in cities worldwide that celebrates those who play, teach, and compose music for instruments in the tuba family, including the tuba, sousaphone, baritone, and euphonium, though some participants bring rarer members of the family such as the helicon, ophicleide, serpent and double bell euphonium.

The first Tuba Christmas was organized by Harvey G. Phillips to honor his tuba teacher William Bell, who was born on Christmas Day 1902, and was held December 22, 1974, in the ice skating rink at New York City’s Rockefeller Center; Paul Lavalle conducted.[1] Over 300 musicians played that day, beginning a holiday tradition.
