Welcome to Election Day!

Election Day is a day set aside in the United States for the general election of federal public officials, which include the president, vice president, and members of Congress. It takes place on "the Tuesday next after the first Monday in the month of November," which translates to the first Tuesday after November 1, which falls sometime between November 2 and November 8. The presidential election is held every four years, during years that are divisible by four. Elections for members of the US House of Representatives and US Senate are held every two years: all Representatives are up for election each election, as they serve two-year terms, while the elections of Senators are staggered, with only a third of them being up at a time for election to their six-year terms. The elections that take place halfway between a president's term are called midterm elections.

SU will be taking and possibly making more free throws. It’s ‘a point of emphasis’ (PS; $; Ditota)

Last season, Syracuse relied on 3-point shots to score most of its points. The Orange had four guys who could make 3s on a relatively consistent basis. The makeup of that roster meant Syracuse would take a lot of 3s and therefore infrequently visit the free throw line.

SU shot a decent 74.7% from the free throw line, but ranked 242nd nationally (KenPom) in its ability to get to the line.

This year, if Monday night’s 2022-23 season opener against Lehigh hinted at anything – and Jim Boeheim suggested it did – the Orange will fire up fewer 3s and instead, rely on its ability to drive the ball or score inside.

The result of that alteration in strategy? A lot of Orange free throws.

Syracuse attempted 31 free throws in its 90-72 win over Lehigh. The Orange made 24 of those shots. That’s nearly 77%. (Lehigh was 10-of-13 from the line.)

“Coach has preached practicing free throws,” SU guard Joe Girard said. “We have a really athletic team so it’s just bound to happen. You drive into the lane, you’re going to get fouled eventually.”

“The way coach wants us to play and attack the rim, we have no choice but to make free throws,” SU point guard Judah Mintz said. “If you’re going to attack, you’re going to get fouled. Free throws are always a point of emphasis. He makes sure we get in there on our own time, after practice, just always shooting free throws.”

Boeheim has 1,100 wins. Period. SU defeats Lehigh (Axe recap) (PS; $; Axe)

There are two numbers that pop following Syracuse basketball’s 90-72 season-opening victory over Lehigh at the JMA Wireless Dome on Monday night.

The first one is 42, as in Jim Boeheim’s 42-5 record in the first game of the season during his Hall of Fame career.

Pretty, pretty, pretty good.

The second is 1,100.

That’s the number of wins Jim Boeheim has as the head coach at Syracuse.

999 wins isn’t a thing. That happened a long time ago for Boeheim.

Boeheim isn’t going to earn 1,000 wins twice if the Orange defeat Colgate next week. He will get to 1,101 wins, end of discussion.

Syracuse, even in a cheeky way, shouldn’t acknowledge 1,000 wins coming around “again” when it happens.

The NCAA was out of its collective mind to erase history and take 101 wins away from Boeheim when the Orange were handed sanctions in 2015.

It has even less credibility now.

Just give the man his wins back already, you cowards.

Boeheim wasn’t in the mood to discuss his accurate win total at Monday’s press conference following the win over Lehigh.

He didn’t have to.

Jim Boeheim has 1,100 wins at Syracuse.
Full stop.

Mountain Hawks Open 2022-23 Campaign with Loss at Syracuse - Lehigh University Athletics (

After possessing a five-point advantage early in the first half, the Lehigh men's basketball team suffered a 90-72 loss to Syracuse inside the JMA Wireless Dome on Monday evening. The Mountain Hawks open the year with a 0-1 record as the Orange are now 1-0.

Lehigh got on the board first when junior Dominic Parolin sank a jumper to give the Mountain Hawks the 2-0 lead. Syracuse countered with a layup to even the game at 2-2. Senior Evan Taylor made a three-pointer to put Lehigh back in front as sophomore Tyler Whitney-Sidney hit a pair of free throws and another Turner basket put the Mountain Hawks in front, 9-4.

Syracuse tied things up after Parolin got called for two quick fouls. Alumundun regained the lead for Lehigh on a fast break layup, which led to a transition dunk from Whitney-Sidney to push the edge to 13-9. Sophomore Keith Higgins Jr. made a jump shot in the paint that put Lehigh back up by four points, 15-11, but the Orange surged back and knotted the match at 17-17.

After the first media timeout, Syracuse put a run together and pulled ahead by ten points, 29-19, with a little over six minutes remaining in the opening half. First-year Bube Momah recorded his first collegiate points on back-to-back fast breaks which led to five points for Momah after converting on the and-one opportunity, bringing the Mountain Hawks with five points, 29-24. After that point, the Orange began to pull ahead and would hold an 18-point advantage at the end of the half, 44-26.

In the second half, Lehigh shot the ball efficiently, with Taylor scoring 15 of his 20 points in the second half, including going 3-for-4 on 3-pointers. Syracuse would hold the lead for the rest of the contest, with their smallest lead of the second half being 16 points on a few occasions.

There were 10 different Mountain Hawks to make a basket in the JMA Wireless Dome, and they were paced by the offensive efforts of Taylor, who ended the night playing 33 minutes and scoring 20 points to go with his four 3-pointers, three rebounds, two steals and two blocked shots. This is the eighth time in Taylor's career that he has scored 20 or more points in a game.

Higgins registered nine points with a team-leading three assists, two rebounds and a steal while Alumundun tallied eight points on three made baskets and a clean 2-for-2 from the free-throw line. He also contributed two rebounds and an assist. Parolin finished the night with seven points, going 3-for-4 from the charity stripe and two-for-four from the floor.

Syracuse Football Loses Its Third Straight, But SU Basketball Provides A Blank Slate (; podcast; Locked on Syracuse)

Matt Bonaparte and Owen Valentine are not pleased with Syracuse Football after the team's third straight loss. The inability for SU to get the offense going with backup quarterback Carlos Del Rio-Wilson, offensive line struggles and greater offensive concerns give a grim outlook for the rest of the season. Despite the disappointment recently from football, Syracuse Basketball has its season opener tonight against Lehigh.

Syracuse Basketball: Fast-rising 4-star guard from NYC is high on Orange (itlh; Adler)

Last month, one of the top shooters and all-around guards in the 2024 class, Elijah Moore, took an official visit to Syracuse basketball after taking an unofficial visit to the Hill in late August to participate in the Orange’s annual Elite Camp.

The 6-foot-4 Moore, a fast-rising national prospect in the junior cycle, said in interviews that his official visit to the ‘Cuse went quite well. He continues to have a high interest in the Orange, and Moore has said that he’s been forming strong relationships with the entire Syracuse basketball coaching staff, including head coach Jim Boeheim.

The ‘Cuse offered Moore a scholarship back in April, and he put forth a stellar AAU circuit in the spring and summer months for the Bronx, N.Y.-based Wiz Kids in the Adidas league.

That, in turn, has helped fuel a massive national rankings boost for Moore. And with college coaches being able to initiate direct contact with 2024 players beginning this past June 15, Moore has seen his offer sheet keep on growing.

Syracuse basketball has made four-star guard Elijah Moore a priority in the 2024 class.
Per an article from SyracuseOnSI publisher Mike McAllister, Moore was planning to take an official visit to Oklahoma State on November 9.

His list of suitors is impressive and expanding. Per his Twitter page and recruiting services, some of Moore’s more recent offers are from fellow Atlantic Coast Conference members Miami and Notre Dame, as well as Oklahoma.

Additionally, his offer sheet includes Oklahoma State, Alabama, California, Seton Hall, Xavier, Connecticut, St. John’s, VCU, Mississippi State, Bryant, Temple, Saint Peter’s, Columbia, Fordham, Saint Joseph’s and the University of Arkansas at Little Rock.

Syracuse McDonald’s giving away free turkeys ahead of Thanksgiving (PS; Herbert)

A local McDonald’s is giving back to the Central New York community this holiday season.

Grant Kemmerer, owner and operator of McDonald’s on Teall Ave. in Syracuse, announced last week that he will be giving away free turkeys via Wegmans gift cards on Wednesday, Nov. 9. The gift card allows people to buy a free turkey weighing up to 14 pounds at participating Wegmans locations.

According to CNYCentral and NewsChannel 9, Kemmerer will also hand out additional freebies including a box of stuffing, mashed potatoes and gravy, and McDonald’s Arch cards for Happy Meals and sandwiches.

“In the spirit of giving back, we are so thrilled to be able to provide holiday meals to our community! We are thankful for our neighbors and those who make up our thriving community and want to make sure they know we are in the holiday spirit here!” Kemmerer said in a statement.

The giveaway begins Wednesday at 5 p.m. at the McDonald’s restaurant located at 1804 Teall Ave, Syracuse. Kemmerer did not say how many gift cards will be available.

The generous offer comes as the U.S. Department of Agriculture warns families that turkeys may cost more this Thanksgiving due to a nationwide turkey shortage. An avian flu outbreak led to the death or culling of about 6 million turkeys, roughly 14% of the U.S.turkey population, pushing turkey prices up about 28% compared to the same time last year.

An eight to 16-pound turkey costs $1.47 per pound, up from $1.15 last year, according to USDA data. Potatoes, gravy and other Thanksgiving fixings are also expected to cost more due to inflation; the cost of food at home is up 13% from last year, according to the latest Consumer Price Index.
