Welcome to International Migrants Day

International Migrants Day serves to celebrate the movement of migrants and their contribution to world development. Globalization has made the world a much smaller place than it previously was. Humans have always migrated but now they do so much faster and much further, many of whom risk their lives trying to reach a safer land with more opportunities.

Syracuse basketball vs. Buffalo: 10 things to watch for (PS; Waters)

The Syracuse Orange suffered a demoralizing loss to Old Dominion on Saturday at the Carrier Dome.
The 68-62 defeat against the Monarchs dropped Syracuse's record to 7-3 with all three losses coming to teams that are currently outside the Associated Press' Top 25.

Now, Syracuse faces perhaps its toughest challenge of the season as the No. 14 Buffalo Bulls (10-0) come to the Carrier Dome. The Tuesday game is scheduled to start at 8 p.m. on ESPN2.

Here are 10 things to watch for:

Syracuse's starting lineup

Syracuse coach Jim Boeheim has gone with the same starting five for the last six games, coinciding with senior point guard Frank Howard's return from an ankle injury.
Howard is one of four returning starters from last year's team who is part of this year's starting unit. In addition to Howard, the returners are guard Tyus Battle, forward Oshae Brissett and center Paschal Chukwu.

The lone new starter is Elijah Hughes, a 6-6 sophomore who transferred from East Carolina. Hughes is averaging 14.3 points and 4.4 rebounds. He leads the team in 3-pointers attempted and in 3-point shooting at 34.9 percent (minimum of one attempt per game).

Bulls put high ranking on line at Syracuse (; Northrup)

History won't be on the side of the University at Buffalo men's basketball team when it puts its national ranking on the line tonight against Syracuse in the Carrier Dome.

UB (10-0) held its 14th ranking in the Associated Press poll of media and 15th in the USA Today Coaches Poll which were announced on Monday..
Syracuse (7-3) is unranked this week and received no votes in either of the national poll after a 68-62 home loss to Old Dominion on Saturday. The Orange was 25th in the AP poll last week.
One reason the coach Nate Oats and the Bulls have to be wary is the success Syracuse has had against ranked opponents over the years, especially in the Carrier Dome.

Syracuse is 92-129 since the AP basketball poll was instituted against teams ranked No.14 or higher when they faced the Orange. Over the years, Syracuse is 7-5 against No. 14 teams, with four wins when the Orange was not ranked. In the Dome, Syracuse is 3-2 against No. 14.

UB is the first non-conference ranked team to play Syracuse in the Carrier Dome since No. 8 Villanova lost to the No. 2 Orange, 78-62, Dec. 18, 2013. That was a Syracuse team that ended up in the NCAA Final Four.


Three Things to Know About #14 Buffalo – Orange Fizz – Free Syracuse Recruiting News (; Raucci)

When we first got a look at Syracuse’s 2018 non-conference schedule, a couple of games probably jumped off the page. The 2K Classic games at Madison Square Garden were certainly headliners with the rekindling of an old Big East rivalry against UConn and the opportunity to play against one of the best freshmen in the country in Bol Bol with Oregon. Then of course there’s the Georgetown game and all of the implications that go into that matchup.
One game that probably didn’t strike people as a marquee matchup at first, though? Well, that would be Tuesday’s showdown with Buffalo. Not exactly a perennial powerhouse, the Bulls put up a good fight last year in the Carrier Dome and knocked off Arizona in the NCAA Tournament, but still didn’t inspire much excitement when their names came across the schedule. That’s not the case anymore. Buffalo will enter the Dome on Tuesday undefeated and #14 in the country. They have undoubtedly been the feel-good story of the year so far in college basketball. So what do you need to know about these early-season Cinderellas? Well, we’ve got you covered.

Runnin’ Bulls

The first thing you need to know about Nate Oats’s team is that they are a run-first, score-first basketball team that wants to make every game a track meet. The Bulls are a top-20 scoring offense in the country at just over 85 points per game. The only thing that SU has seen that is even close to what Buffalo does offensively is UConn who checks in as the #42 scoring team in the nation and the Orange gave up a season-high 83 points in that loss to the Huskies.

3 eateries to join Blaze Pizza at The Marshall near Syracuse University (PS; Moriarty)

Three more eateries will join Blaze Pizza in the ground-floor commercial space at The Marshall, the big new student apartment project that just opened near Syracuse University.

Blaze Pizza, the gourmet-pizza chain partly owned by LeBron James, will take the most prominent retail spot in the building -- the storefront facing South Crouse Avenue, half a block north of Marshall Street. It will be the fast-growing pizza chain’s first Central New York location.

Taking the storefronts next to it will be:

--The Halal Guys. The halal fast-casual gyro and chicken restaurant is part of a franchise that began as a food cart on he streets of Manhattan in 1990.

“Once you have had a taste, you will understand why New Yorkers and tourists alike have stood in the city’s longest food cart line (sometimes for hours) to get a hot, steaming platter of chicken or gyro over rice, covered in The Halal Guys famous, proprietary White Sauce,” the website promises.

This will be the franchise’s first restaurant in Upstate New York.

--I Heart Mac & Cheese. The franchise’s website describes it as a “fast-casual concept restaurant specializing in customizable, made-to-order macaroni and cheese and grilled cheese sandwiches.”
