Meltdown in Blacksburg .::. Upstate Orange Podcast

For one half of basketball, the Syracuse Orange looked like they’d finally put it all together, for the second half, it looked like they couldn’t be worse. We recap the narrow victory over Virginia Tech in Blacksburg on Saturday and look into the crystal ball at what some current Orange player’s senior nights could be like. How will some of these guys be remembered when they’re career on the hill is over? Finally, some great trivia focused on our performance against other ACC schools in our history.
