With the 2022-23 college basketball season upon the horizon, many teams are under the radar with a lot of questions to be answered. One of those teams happens to be from the ACC, the Syracuse Orange. With Jim Boeheim entering his 47th season as coach of the Orange, many are wondering what will the oldest head coach in college basketball today has left in his playbook.
Two Boeheim’s Out, New Stars Coming In
Following the departure of Jimmy and Buddy Boeheim from the Orange, many new players are coming into Syracuse this season with some hopes of helping the Orange reach the top of the ACC and making a run for the national championship in March.
Many new names, like Justin Taylor, Peter Carsey, Judah Mintz, and Chris Bunch coming into the program this upcoming season, many are looking to these players to provide an impact and fill in the shoes that were left behind by many players that left the program last season.
With the combination of these young players coming in and returning stars, like Joe Girard lll, Jesse Edwards, and Symir Torrence, Syracuse would have a roster that has the potential to make a run for an ACC title this upcoming season.
Jesse Edwards Revenge Season
As he was starting to catch fire towards the end of the 2021-22 college basketball season, Jesse Edward’s season came to an end after he fractured his left wrist in a win against Boston College. Edwards, who averaged 12 points per game and six rebounds per game, is looking to make up for the time he missed on the court as he will look to bring the energy back to the big man position that Syracuse needs in big game situations.
He has the ability to box out and attack the glass, attack the basketball on the offensive end, and make big plays in tough situations. Don’t be surprised if we see Edwards step up as a leader this upcoming season and make his presence felt on the court.
Jim Boeheim’s last chance for a Title?
Coming upon his 47th season at the helm as Syracuse Orange basketball head coach, many are wondering how much this coach has left in the tank. Boeheim has brought one national title in 2003, five Big East Tournament championships, 34 NCAA Tournaments appearances, five Final Four appearances, and three national title game appearances, he has made himself the staple of the Syracuse Orange basketball team as both a player and a coach.
Many Orange fans want to see what the coach brings to the table this season, with his 2-3 zone defensive scheme and fast pace offense, as many begin to wonder, is this the final time we see Boeheim make a run for a national championship ? As we wait to see what the season brings us, we will see what the Orange head coach will do after it is all over.
When it comes to the 2022-23 season coming upon us, many questions are going to linger when it comes to the Syracuse Orange basketball team.
