Welcome to National Entrepreneurs' Day!

Entrepreneurship is not for the faint of heart, but for those who come up with ideas, take risks, and start businesses. National Entrepreneurs' Day recognizes, celebrates, and honors entrepreneurs, particularly those in the United States, for all the hard work they do. It was created in 2010 by David Hauser and Siamak Taghaddos—co-founders of Grasshopper, "the entrepreneur's phone system"—and Amir Tehrani, an entrepreneur and co-founder of The Legacy Foundation.

The Colgate bench celebrates after another three pointer made. Syracuse Orange basketball takes on the Colgate Raiders at the Carrier Dome in Syracuse N.Y. Nov. 20, 2021.Dennis Nett |

Syracuse meets Colgate one year after historic upset: What to know about Tuesday’s rematch (PS; $; Waters)

Syracuse went nearly 60 years without losing to Colgate. Then came last year’s meeting between the two Upstate schools.

Colgate stunned the Orange, 100-85, for its first win over Syracuse since 1962.

A lot had changed in the world between Colgate’s 1962 win over Syracuse and last year’s upset. Man walked on the moon. The first Walmart opened in 1962. The James Bond films had gone from their debut with Sean Connery as 007 to Daniel Craig’s final bow as the super spy.

Now think of how much has changed since Syracuse’s last win over Colgate. (Note: It’s only been two years.)

Only two current Syracuse players; seniors Joe Girard and Jesse Edwards, have ever played in a win over Colgate. The last Syracuse team to beat Colgate included Quincy Guerrier (Oregon), Robert Braswell (Charlotte), Jalen Carey (Rhode Island) and Brycen Goodine (Providence, now Fairfield) on its roster.

Syracuse (1-0) and Colgate (2-1) will meet again on Tuesday night at the JMA Wireless Dome. Game time 7 p.m.

Here is a look at what’s changed since last year’s game, what’s the same and what might need to change for Syracuse to regain the upper-hand in this Upstate New York rivalry.

Can man-to-man make a difference?

When Colgate beat Syracuse last year, the Raiders did so by slicing apart the Orange’s 2-3 zone defense.

The Raiders scored 100 points while taking 43 3-pointers (the second-highest total of any Syracuse opponent ever) and making 18 of them (also the second-highest total for an SU opponent).

Opponent Preview: What to know about Colgate (DO; Vasudevan)

Jim Boeheim will have an opportunity to clinch his 1000th official win on Tuesday night against Colgate, a team that handed the Orange their first loss last season. Colgate heads into the game with back-to-back wins over Wells and Brown, losing to Buffalo by one-point in its season-opener.

Syracuse comes into Tuesday off an eight-day break, defeating Lehigh 90-72 last Monday. Judah Mintz, Jesse Edwards and Joe Girard III all finished with over 15 points, and the Orange won the rebounding battle 39-26.

“It’s early, there’s a long way to go. We got a lot of work ahead of us,” Boeheim said about the win. “This was a much better overall outing than the first two exhibition games. So, try to build on this.”

Here’s everything to know about Colgate before Tuesday’s matchup:

All-time series
Syracuse leads 127-46.

Last time they played

Colgate defeated Syracuse for the first time since 1962 last season, defeating the Orange 100-85. SU took a 17-point lead seven minutes into the game as the Raiders started 0-for-12 from beyond the arc. But Colgate found its stride from deep, scoring 33 points from 3 in around 17 minutes.

“They started out the game missing, and I think we thought that it was our defense — it wasn’t our defense,” Boeheim said. “They were missing open shots. As the game progressed, they’re going to make those shots, and we have got to be able to defend better.”

Buddy Boeheim finished with 19 points and Girard finished with 27 points, but Syracuse’s defense and lack of rebounding led to the loss. Buddy called the game “a punch in the face.”

Beat writers predict Syracuse will beat Colgate, move to 2-0 (DO; Staff)

After an unusual eight-day stretch without any games after its season-opener last Monday, Syracuse returns to the court Tuesday night for a matchup with Colgate. The Raiders, who have had an annual spot on SU’s schedule since 1993 and have played the Orange more than any other school, pulled off a surprising upset win in the Dome last year, 100-85. It was Colgate’s first win over Syracuse since 1962.

The Raiders won the Patriot League last year and advanced to the NCAA Tournament, where they lost to Wisconsin in the first round. The Orange are coming off their first losing season under head coach Jim Boeheim, but impressed in their win over Lehigh last week, winning 90-72 behind a combined 37 points from Jesse Edwards and Joe Girard III.

Here is what our beat writers think will happen when Colgate and Syracuse meet for the 174th time Tuesday night:

Anish Vasudevan (1-0)
Not like last year
Syracuse 85, Colgate 77

Syracuse led by 17 points just seven minutes into last year’s matchup against Colgate. But a lack of rebounding and 3-point defense helped the Raiders take control of the half, and ultimately the game. The Orange’s defense has improved this season with the addition of Judah Mintz at the top of the zone, and Edwards and Benny Williams have shown their strength crashing the boards.

But Indiana University of Pennsylvania exposed how SU still needs to improve on defending deep shots. IUP lost steam, which Boeheim said wouldn’t happen with a stronger team — possibly Colgate. This game may be closer than it needs to be, but if Edwards and Williams can make sure Syracuse wins the rebounding battle, unlike last season, it should be able to come out on top.

Live Stats: LINK

Syracuse enters the 2022-23 season in a situation it has not been in under Jim Boeheim. Coming back from a losing season. The Orange finished the 2021-22 campaign below .500 for the first time in more than 50 years and has completely reshaped the roster in the offseason. While veterans Joe Girard, Jesse Edwards, Benny Williams and Symir Torrence are all back, Syracuse has seven newcomers in freshmen Judah Mintz, Quadir Copeland, Justin Taylor, Chris Bunch, Maliq Brown, Peter Carey and transfer Mounir Hima. Syracuse won both of the two exhibition games for the Orange, against Indiana (PA) and Southern New Hampshire, though neither victory was particularly impressive. The regular season started with a win over Lehigh.

Syracuse basketball vs. Colgate odds, prediction and how to watch (itlh; Adler)

Syracuse basketball is starting off its 2022-23 campaign with non-conference contests against two members of the Patriot League. In the season opener, last Monday evening on the Hill, the Orange looked pretty solid in an 18-point triumph over Lehigh.

Now the ‘Cuse is set to host fellow Patriot League squad Colgate this Tuesday night, which has proven a strong team in this conference in recent years while also making appearances in the NCAA Tournament.

Oh, and did I fail to mention that, in 2021-22, the Raiders stunned Syracuse basketball on the road, while at the same time snapping a 54-game losing streak versus the Orange? In that meeting, the ‘Cuse raced out to a 15-point lead early on, but Colgate hit a ridiculous 18 3-pointers and would prevail, 100-85.

Naturally, Syracuse basketball will want to exact revenge against the Raiders. Hopefully, the ‘Cuse defense – whether zone or man-to-man – will lock down on Colgate’s perimeter shooters. Otherwise, this could prove a really challenging game early on in the 2022-23 term for the Orange.

While Syracuse basketball (1-0) has only suited up in one encounter in the present stanza, the Raiders (2-1) have played a couple of games to date. Colgate, in its season debut, fell at Buffalo by one point.

Since then, the Raiders have defeated Brown on the road by nine points and Wells College at home by 33 points.

First AP Top 25 men’s basketball poll of 2022-23 regular season. Where are the ACC teams? (PS; Ditota)

After a week of games, AP voters turned in their second Top 25 ballot either Sunday night or this morning.

This early in the year, it’s almost impossible to judge teams. Some have played one game. Some have played three games. Just one preseason Top 25 team of consequence played a game of any real significance and it was staged on an aircraft carrier. (Remember those games?)

Here’s the first weekly Top 25. Scroll below to see the ballot I turned in last night.

Wanna Feel Old? Carmelo Anthony's Son Kiyan Has Officially Received An Offer From Syracuse University (; hubbs)

Wanna Feel Old? Carmelo Anthony's Son Kiyan Has Officially Received An Offer From Syracuse University

Beyond blessed to receive an offer from Syracuse University!
— Kiyan Anthony (@kiyananthony)November 13, 2022
Syracuse has offered a scholarship to the son of Orange legend Carmelo Anthony.
Kiyan Anthony, a 6-foot-5 guard in the 2025 recruiting class, announced on his Twitter page that Syracuse had extended a scholarship offer. Anthony currently attends Christ the King High School in New York City. Father and son made a surprise trip to Syracuse this weekend. Carmelo Anthony received a huge ovation at Syracuse’s football game against Florida State at the JMA Wireless Dome on Saturday night.
Kiyan Anthony is ranked No. 62 in the ‘25 class by He also has scholarship offers from Memphis, Manhattan andBryant.

My god does this make me feel ancient. Carmelo Anthony's kid has officially received an offer from Syracuse University. I remember Kiyan sitting court-side as a kid all the time during Melo's Knicks days and now he's getting ready for college basketball. Currently ranked as the 62nd best player in the 2025 class, you gotta imagine he takes the Cuse offer. Carmelo loves his alma mater and has donated a ton to make the facilities better over the years. Considering the other options currently are Memphis, Manhattan, and Bryant I don't see how his son goes anywhere else.

Tragedy strikes the Charlottesville community as 3 players, Devin Chandler, D'Sean Perry and Lavel Davis Jr. were killed over the weekend by former football player Chris Jones by gun violence. Kenton Gibbs of @Locked On Wolfpack joins the show to talk GBU Tuesday, College Basketball & more.



The actual ballot from the Sept. 26, 1992 Post-Standard which readers had to fill out by hand and mail in to vote for their local favorites.; $; Croyle)

Do you remember 1992?

It was the year that Bill Clinton was elected president, the Summer Olympics took place in Barcelona, Hurricane Andrew battered Florida, and Americans chose whether to have young or old Elvis on a postage stamp.

In Central New York, General Motors announced the closing of the Inland Fisher Guide plant in Salina, Syracuse University basketball was penalized by the NCAA for violations, and Syracuse finally got a 911 emergency system.

We watched “Roseanne,” “Home Improvement,” and “Murphy Brown” on TV. Listened to the music of Boyz II Men and Kris Kross and saw “Batman Returns,” “Aladdin,” and “Wayne’s World” at the theaters.

What did Central New Yorkers like doing locally in 1992? What were their favorite things about living in CNY?

The Post-Standard asked its readers to vote for their favorites. The paper published a full-page ballot asking for their choice on a variety of topics, like best restaurant, best pizza, best local personality, and our claim to fame.

There was no app to visit or anything to click on to vote. Instead, voters hand wrote down what they thought on a ballot and mailed it in. About 600 people voted.

Here is what they chose.

Best Chicken Wings

A perennial Syracuse favorite, the Dinosaur Bar-B-Que, was voted to have the area’s best chicken wings. Owner John Stage explained why his restaurant’s wings were so popular.

“We use aggressive seasoning in our wing sauce and the wings are twice the size of normal ones,” he said. “We have easy, warm, and hardcore wings depending on your tolerance.”

The Dinosaur’s win was a close one. Their 36 votes just topped Wing King and the Ground Round.

Best of 1992

Charlie Roman hangs on the light post outside of his bar, with the trumpet that he blares at customers in the bar at Roman's Tavern. His spot was chosen as the best nightspot in the area in 1992. Syracuse Post-StandardSyracuse Post-Standard

Best Local Nightspot

After eating those wings, you might be interested in finding a local nightspot to wash them down. The Dinosaur received a couple votes in this category but finished well behind the winner, Roman’s, a fixture in 1992 on North Franklin Street.

Club Zodiac on South Franklin Street and the Pump House tavern on Pulaski and Bear Streets finished second and third, respectively.
