Welcome to Orange Chicken Day!

Orange chicken, a Chinese-American dish beloved at Chinese restaurants in North America, particularly at Panda Express, where it is believed to have been invented, is celebrated today with Orange Chicken Day. Sometimes known as orange peel chicken, orange-flavored chicken, or tangerine chicken, orange chicken consists of chopped and battered chicken that's fried until it's light and crispy and then coated in a sweet orange-flavored chili sauce that thickens and caramelizes like a glaze. The secret to the sweet and sour taste of the dish—at least when it comes to Panda Express—is a contrast of brown sugar, honey, and oil from orange peels with soy sauce and Chinese black vinegar.

Orange chicken is similar to some sweet and sour dishes in China and is often considered to be a Chinese food in America, but it is not regularly found in China. It may be viewed as a variation of another American-born dish, General Tso's chicken. Chef Andy Kao claims to have developed the recipe for orange chicken at a Panda Express in Hawaii in 1987, as a modification of a bone-in dish the restaurant served. While it's an American creation, it may have been inspired by a tangerine chicken dish from Hunan province, China, that translates to "dried citrus peel chicken." The Chinese dish diverges in preparation and taste from orange chicken, however, and is fresh and spicy instead of sweet and sour. Besides Panda Express, where it is the signature dish, orange chicken is regularly found in school cafeterias, at military bases, and in the frozen meal aisles in supermarkets. It is prepared, enjoyed, and celebrated today, on Orange Chicken Day!

SU’s Pair Of Top 2023 Targets Have Dominated AAU Play – Orange Fizz – Daily Syracuse Recruiting News & Team Coverage (orangefizz.net; Bainbridge)

As we approach the latter half of the summer, it’s become increasingly clear that Syracuse men’s hoops isn’t planning on a spectacular ending to the Class of 2023 recruiting cycle. The Orange used momentum last summer from its first big surprise commitment in Justin Taylor to assemble an increasingly exciting group, but we’re past the point where the first domino should’ve fallen in ‘23. At this point, the Orange are headed towards a class with only a few commits or perhaps just one.

We’ve written about whether or not that’s a good or bad thing and how it’ll play with the stacked incoming Class of ‘22, but one thing is clear: at this point, SU’s Class of ‘23 looks like it may come down to the commitments of two specific players in JP Estrella and Elmarko Jackson.

If you need a refresher, Estrella (a 4-star center from New Hampshire) and Jackson (a 4-star point guard from Connecticut) have been connected to the Orange in different capacities. Estrella has noted his interest in Syracuse, spoken highly about its frequent communication, and has already received an offer – but is also being courted by Duke. For Jackson, ‘Cuse is one of many players for his services, but he’s been on SU’s radar since being “in awe” of an offer from the Orange back in May.

In the meantime, neither player has shown their hand with regard to their commitments. Instead, both Estrella and Jackson have upped the ante with dominant performances in AAU ball.

Estrella’s New England-based Middlesex Magic and Jackson’s Delaware-based WE R1 teams play in the Under Armour Association league. During the league’s last session down in Cartersville, Georgia, the pair showed out in a big way. Estrella notched four games with 13 or more points and a pair of double-doubles, while Jackson scored at least 10 points in five of six contests and put up games with 25 and 24 points. For two players that have considerably raised their stock over the course of this recruiting cycle, dynamic performances like those are only going to help.

Benny Williams to play for USA East Coast team on tour of Spain (PS; Waters)

USA East Coast annually sends a team of current college players to play a series of games against international teams in Europe.

This year’s trip will follow in the sneakers of the 1992 USA Olympic Dream Team, which featured Michael Jordan, Magic Johnson and Larry Bird, with the team of college players taking part in games in Barcelona, Spain, site of the 1992 Olympics.

Syracuse forward Benny Williams is on the USA East Coast roster. Williams, a 6-foot-8 sophomore, averaged 11.5 minutes in 29 games for the Orange last year. He scored 1.9 points per game, while grabbing 1.4 rebounds.

Williams will join other ACC players on the trip, including Pittsburgh’s John Hugley and Duke’s Jaylen Blakes.

In past years, Syracuse players such as Rakeem Christmas, Michael Gbinije, Tyler Roberson, Kaleb Joseph and Jalen Carey have taken part in USA East Coast tours of Europe. Buddy and Jimmy Boeheim were set to take part in last year’s trip to Spain, but Covid forced the tour to be cancelled.

TBT and Boeheim’s Army at OCC: What to know about venue, tickets, parking and more (PS; Ditota)

By Thursday, basketball players in The Basketball Tournament’s Syracuse regional will be streaming into town to practice at Onondaga Community College and prepare for the $1 million winner-take-all tournament.

OCC will host the event for the first time since 2019, when it attracted sold-out crowds mostly there to support Syracuse-based Boeheim’s Army.

The Army returns for 2022, it’s reconfigured lineup hoping to match last year’s championship success.

Boeheim’s Army plays its first game next Friday at 7 p.m., the finale of an all-day basketball bonanza beginning at noon. India Rising, the No. 8 seed, will be top-seeded Boeheim’s Army’s first opponent.

Syracuse Basketball: Blue-blood predictions in for 5-star guard, 4-star big (itlh; Adler)

National analysts and other recruiting insiders have logged some predictions in the direction of two blue-blood programs for a pair of Syracuse basketball targets.

I always say to take these sorts of projections with a grain of salt, because the recruiting processes of top-flight players can ebb and flow.

At the same time, I believe these predictions are worth monitoring, as often – but not every single time – they do end up ringing true.

In this piece, we’re talking about Joseph Estrella, a fast-rising 2023 four-star big man who was offered by the Orange coaching staff nearly a year ago and has proven a top target for the ‘Cuse in the rising-senior cycle.

And the second Orange recruit that we’ll discuss here is Ian Jackson, a 2024 five-star guard who was offered a scholarship by Syracuse basketball in April and recently vaulted to the No. 1 national rating in his class, according to several recruiting services.

Syracuse basketball faces a ton of elite competition for Joseph Estrella and Ian Jackson.

The 6-foot-11 Estrella is a power forward/center who runs with the New England-based Middlesex Magic in the Under Armour Association league on the AAU circuit.

Estrella, who has amassed more than two-dozen offers at this juncture in his recruiting process, will spend his senior year at the Brewster Academy in Wolfeboro, N.H.

When I penned this column, there were at least three predictions in the direction of Duke for Estrella on the 247Sports Web site. The Blue Devils also held a slight lead for him on the On3 Web site, according to that recruiting service’s recruiting prediction machine.

Buddy Boeheim, Detroit Pistons rally but fall short in NBA summer league loss to Cleveland (PS; Waters)

The Detroit Pistons rallied from a 23-point deficit, took the lead in the final minute, but ultimately fell short in their NBA summer league game against the Cleveland Cavaliers on Thursday.

Buddy Boeheim, the former Syracuse guard, found himself in the midst of the Pistons’ comeback, draining a long jump shot that cut Cleveland’s lead to two points in the game’s final minutes.

But after taking a 77-76 lead with 55 seconds remaining, Detroit came up empty on repeated possessions and lost 82-79.

Trailing by three points with 9 seconds left, Detroit took a timeout. The inbounds pass went to Boeheim, who was closely guarded and dished to Jules Bernard, who had his 3-point attempt blocked. A last-second 3-pointer from former Miami guard Charlie Moore clipped the rim.

Starting for the second straight game, Boeheim finished with nine points on 3-for-11 field goal shooting in 24 minutes. He made just two of his seven 3-point attempts. He also had three rebounds and a blocked shot.

Boeheim’s shooting was reflective of the Pistons’ struggles from outside the arc. He was the only Detroit player with more than two made 3s in the game. As a team, Detroit went 7-for-31 on 3-pointers.

A development team has turned the historic Merrell Soule Building in Syracuse's Franklin Square into 41 apartments featuring 12- and 14-foot ceilings and exposed brick walls and wooden beams. (Rick Moriarty | rmoriarty@syracuse.com)

A development team has turned a more than century old industrial building in Syracuse’s Franklin Square into 40 new apartments.

Developers Joe Gehm, Mark Lane, Al Palermo and Tim Lynn are putting the finishing touches on the apartments at the historic Merrell Soule building at 600 N. Franklin St. The team has invested $20 million into the development.

Tenants began moving in July 1. Gehm said a quarter of the apartments are already leased.

Seven of the 40 completed apartments are studios, and the rest are one- and two-bedroom units. A 41st unit -- a two-story, three-bedroom loft -- is under construction.

The apartments feature 12- to 14-foot ceilings, exposed brick walls and original wooden support beams. Each has large windows that, while new, are replicas of the original factory windows on the building.

The developers have reserved eight of the apartments for tenants with moderate incomes. They will lease for $885 a month. The other apartments are market-rate, ranging from $1,500 to $2,200 a month.

Each unit comes with a washer and dryer. Parking is provided on site.

The building was built in 1904 to house the Merrell-Soule Co., a maker of condensed mincemeat, and was expanded several times over the years.
