Welcome to National Banana Day!

National Banana Day is centered in Ireland, where it was first celebrated in 2017. It is promoted by Fyffes, a fresh produce and fruit importing company, and has been acknowledged by other fruit companies such as Dole Food Company and Chiquita Brands International. It supports a national drive to encourage healthy eating, especially for children, and reminds shoppers to think of bananas as a nutritious and natural food that they can add to meals or eat as convenience food. It also highlights how the banana is fun and versatile.

The banana is the most popular fruit in the United States and around the world. The average person eats about 100 of them a year, which comes out to about 25 to 33 pounds worth. They are the cheapest fruit and are also one of the most perishable. They may appear to grow on trees, but they actually grow on plants that have 10 to 20 feet high trunks. The banana plant is an herb—the largest herb plant, actually—and bananas are its fruit. The plant grows in the tropics.

Syracuse Basketball Going After Dakota Leffew to Pair with Jyare Davis | Syracuse Orange Podcast (youtube; podcast; Locked on Syracuse; premieres at 9 AM)

Three SU Outgoing Transfers Find New Homes (orangefizz.net; Gotkin)

As the transfer portal chaos continues, three members of the Orange family who announced their intention to leave Syracuse this season have committed to new schools over the past couple of days. It’s always interesting to see what kind of schools go after and get these former SU players. It can be a good measuring stick of what other coaches think about last years team.

Peter Carey Commits to Siena

The first player to announce his decision was the redshirt freshman center who didn’t see much time. Peter Carey announced his commitment to Gerry McNamara and Siena. It isn’t too surprising to see a SU player follow McNamara to his new job however it should be noted how big of a drop in competition this is. Even though he had to sit his true freshman year, Carey did have excitement around him and people believed he could compete at the highest level. It’ll be interesting to see how he does against worse competition.

Benny Williams Commits to UCF

The long windy road of Syracuse and Benny Williams has finally come to an end. The former five-star announced he is trading in the snow for the sunshine and committing to the University of Central Florida. Williams is the only outgoing transfer so far to commit to another Power Five team. UCF joined the Big12 last season but really struggled, finishing in 12th place. Williams will always have the potential to be a great player in college basketball and has a chance to prove himself with fewer expectations in Orlando. The Knights have made the tournament just once since 2005.

Justin Taylor Commits to James Madison

The only one of Syracuse’s starters from this season to commit to a new school so far is the most controversial one. It’s not a question that the sophomore struggled mightily this season. Fans continued to call for him to be taken out of the starting lineup. Taylor’s new school, like Peter Carey is a big step down from Syracuse. While it did win an NCAA tournament game this season, James Madison is in the Sun Belt which wasn’t even a top-15 conference in college basketball this season. Taylor will have the chance to thrive though, playing against worse competition and competing close to home.

Syracuse Basketball: Amid GMac to Siena, Hop out at UW, 4-star big resets recruitment (itlh; Adler)

Four-star junior big man Matthew Gilhool from Philadelphia, who has visited Syracuse basketball at least three times and has proven a priority 'Cuse target in the 2025 class, says his recruiting process has become "wide open."

The 6-foot-10 power forward/center, rated in the top 80 nationally of his cycle by most recruiting services, recently discussed the latest in his recruitment during an interview that was published on inquirer.com.

Up until recently, per that interview, Gilhool's top three college suitors consisted of the Orange, Washington and Penn State.

However, last month, Washington head coach Mike Hopkins, a former long-time assistant under the Hall of Famer Jim Boeheim at the 'Cuse, was fired. Toward the end of March, Syracuse basketball associate head coach Gerry McNamara was named the head coach of Siena.

Per reports, McNamara appeared to be the Orange's lead recruiter for Gilhool. Amid these recent changes, Gilhool says he's hit the reset button on his recruiting process, according to the article on inquirer.com.

Syracuse basketball did recently offer another big man in the 2025 class.

According to recruiting services, college schools that have offered a scholarship to Gilhool, besides the 'Cuse, include Iowa, Indiana, Indiana State, Washington, Maryland, Bryant, Miami, Mississippi State, Penn State, Rutgers, Temple, Virginia Tech, Cincinnati, Fairfield, Iona, St. John’s, West Virginia, Marshall and Pittsburgh.

The inquirer.com story states that Alabama is in contact with Gilhool, who says that he's hoping to receive a scholarship offer from the Crimson Tide.

Former Pitt Target Expected to Pick ACC Rival (SI; Thompson)

The Pitt Panthers beat NC State twice on the court this past season, sweeping the season series. But after an ACC Tournament Championship and Final Four run, the Wolfpack are reloading and notching victories on the recruiting trail.

After head coach Kevin Keatts was able to convince Louisville transfer Brandon Huntley-Hatfield to join the Wolfpack, he is on the verge of adding another talented transfer to his ranks. On3 recruiting insider Jamie Shaw predicted this week that former Georgetown guard Dontrez Styles, at one point a Pitt target when he was transfering last offseason, would commit to NC State and it would happen quickly.

In one season at Georgetown, Styles started all 32 games and averaged 12.8 points and 5.8 rebounds per game while shooting 43.0% from the field, 77.6% from the foul line and 36.8% from 3-point range.

Styles began his career at North Carolina but struggled to find playing time, averaging just 5.9 minutes per game over two seasons.

Bruce Springsteen previews Syracuse concert with ‘plans to destroy your city’ (PS; Herbert)

Bruce Springsteen previewed this week’s Syracuse concert with a special message on social media.

“First time I came to Syracuse was 1973 and you were looking at the only two members of the E Street Band that were there 51 frickin’ years ago,” The Boss said in an Instagram video alongside original E Street Band bassist Garry W. Tallent on Monday.

“It said ‘Welcome Bruce Spring-stine,’” Tallant recalled.

It’s unclear if he was referring to a misspelled name (Springstein?) or a mispronunciation of the bandleader’s surname. A review in the Herald-Journal newspaper of that 1973 concert at the Onondaga County War Memorial misidentified the band opening for Chicago as “a five-member combo from New Jersey called Bris Christy.”

“50 years later and guess what? Me, this gentleman Garry W. Tallent, and the rest of the E Street Band have plans to destroy your city and rock you into the ground!” Springsteen said Monday.

Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band are set to perform at the JMA Wireless Dome in Syracuse on Thursday, April 18. The concert was originally scheduled for September 2023 but was postponed after Springsteen was diagnosed with peptic ulcer disease.

“You sing with your diaphragm. My diaphragm was hurting so badly that when I went to make the effort to sing, it was killing me, you know?,” the 74-year-old Rock and Roll Hall of Famer told E Street Radio host Jim Rotolo last month. “So, I literally couldn’t sing at all, you know, and that lasted for two or three months, along with just a myriad of other painful problems.”

More than 30,000 tickets have been sold for the Dome concert, which will be Springsteen’s first performance in Central New York since playing Vernon Downs in 2012. Past Springsteen concerts also include performances at the War Memorial in 1973 and 1978, the Landmark Theatre in 1996, and the Carrier Dome in 1985 and 1992.

Everybody have fun: ‘80s pop stars team up for Central New York concert (PS; Herbert)

Everybody’s invited to have fun at an upcoming Central New York concert.

’80s pop stars Wang Chung, The Motels and Naked Eyes will perform at Sharkey’s Event Center in Liverpool on Friday, June 14. Doors open for the show at 5 p.m.

Tickets are on sale at syracusetix.com. Prices are $40 for general admission, $55 for preferred seating, $68 for VIP seating closest to stage, and $600 for a VIP table of eight closest to the stage.

Meet-and-greets with Wang Chung and The Motels are also available at visionmerch.com.

The event, dubbed the “Abducted by the ’80s” dance party, will feature DJ sets and live performances by Wang Chung, The Motels and Naked Eyes. The fun will also include an ’80s trivia contest and a costume party, so guests are encouraged to dress up like the decade of John Hughes movies, New Wave music videos on MTV, leg warmers and big hair.

Together, the three acts have recorded 28 Billboard Top 100 hits including eight top 10 hits, according to a press release.

Wang Chung is best known for the ’80s hits “Everybody Have Fun Tonight,” “Let’s Go!” and “Dance Hall Days.” The London-based group still features original members Nick Feldman and Jack Hues.

Naked Eyes, another English act, found international fame in the same decade with “Promises, Promises,” “When the Lights Go Out,” “(What) In the Name of Love” and a cover of “Always Something There to Remind Me.” Original singer Pete Byrne leads Naked Eyes; former bandmate Rob Fisher died in 1999.

The Motels are a California-based new wave band that hit the U.S. top 10 with “Only the Lonely” and “Suddenly Last Summer.” The group, also known for “Take the L” and “Danger,” most recently released a new album in 2018 as Martha Davis and The Motels.

ESF + SU = Awesome! Long-Standing Partnership Reaps Benefits for Students (esf.edu)

Did you know that when you enroll at SUNY ESF, you also get access to Syracuse University (SU)? It’s one of the things students say they love most about going to ESF. The longstanding partnership between the two institutions dates back to 1911 and is still going strong.

With SU right next door, ESF students can:

  • Take SU classes
  • Use their library, computer, and recreational facilities
  • Join student clubs, Greek life, music, and artistic groups
  • Participate in intramural athletics and club sports
  • Attend events
SU also provides ESF students with additional options for dining, faith-based communities, and disability services. Let’s dive in more! ’

(In case you’re wondering, yes, SU students have the same opportunities at ESF!)

Classes: ESF students can take 30 credits at SU, allowing them to broaden their academic horizons without added expense. ’The same goes for SU students interested in taking courses at ESF. Students are able to do this because we’re partner institutions. Of course, we advise consulting with your advisor to ensure courses fit within your academic program and requirements.

Recreation: The Barnes Center at the Arch is a state-of-the-art facility catering to fitness enthusiasts of all levels. Amenities include a rock-climbing wall, swimming pool, weight rooms, fitness classes, and even an e-sports gaming room. All students need to do is show their ESF ID.

Dining: After working up an appetite at the gym, students wanting a change from ESF’s Trailhead Café can use their meal plan to grab a bite to eat at any of SU’s dining facilities. From dining halls to cafés to the Schine Center, there are menus to appeal to all palettes and dietary needs.

Faith Communities: Feeding the mind and body aren’t the only things ESF students can do at SU. They can also feed the soul and join any of the SU faith-based communities or attend a service or event. Hendricks Chapel is an interfaith religious and cultural chapel located at the heart of the SU campus and a quick walk from ESF’s Quad.

Extracurricular: While ESF offers over 40 environmental-focused clubs, SU widens the spectrum with more than 300 club options. Participating in these professional, recreational, service and social affiliations will enrich your educational experience. ESF students can even join the SU marching, pep bands, and non-D1 sports.

Also, students purchase their books through the SU Bookstore and can utilize SU’s Center for Disability Resources.

At the end of four years, ESF students are invited to attend SU's commencement ceremonies in the Dome, and ESF graduates receive a diploma that proudly carries the Syracuse University seal alongside the seal of the State University of New York College of Environmental Science and Forestry.

At ESF, you can have a small-college community with access to big university benefits. In other words, you can have the best of both worlds.

We can’t wait to officially welcome our incoming class of Mighty Oaks!
 
In the old days, ESF students were also SU students, could play SU athletics, and got SU diplomas -- that was me. Then someone filed a lawsuit because they didn't want to pay SU fees. All was lost after that.
