along with RJ Barrett/Duke, Carsen Edwards/Purdue, Ethan Happ/Wisconsin and Shamorie Ponds/St Johns. He was also picked as the #3 best player in their top 100 list behind Barrett and Edwards. Congrats to Tyus. I have to think about the last time we had a 1st team preseason AA. Maybe Hakim Warrick. Am I missing someone?

Oshae is picked as the 63rd best player and PC is picked as the 5th best rim protector.

Congrats to all of them. It's a good time to be Orange.

Happ is still at Wisconsin?? He must be on the Pascal extended plan!!!

Happ has a Carl Krauser scholarship to Wisconsin. It allows him 8 years of eligibility. It's only superseded by the Darius Lane scholarship which is valid for a whole decade.

The Syracuse equivalent to this is the Gerry McNamara scholarship which is good for 6 years and 9 f'ing games.

Wes Johnson made 1st team AA in 2010.

Oshae at 63 is the most disrespectful thing I've heard in 10 years.

Just wait...

Oshae is a monster. I am baffled by the underestimation of him. They will play the games and people will see. The guy is going to take the nation by storm this year.
I am the Prez of the OB fan club. I expect him to be able to finish more around the rim this year and still get fouled as much.

Only if we have enough guys who can make threes, and he finishes better through contact. I think the chances are that he's going to explode on to the national scene this year, but he has to put in the work. He has to get better. I do believe he can do it.
