Jim Boeheim, the iconic head coach of the Syracuse University men's basketball, is not worried about losing his job amid the investigation of former associate head coach Bernie Fine.

After former Syracuse University men’s basketball associate head coach Bernie Fine was fired Sunday in light of a third victim accusing him of sexual molestation, head coach Jim Boeheim seemed to be the next person who was likely to lose his job.

Syracuse University fired men's basketball associate coach Bernie Fine Sunday after a third man stepped forward, accusing the longtime coach of molesting him when he was younger and ESPN released a taped conversation between Fine's wife and accuser Bobby Davis.

Bernie Fine, Syracuse University men’s basketball associate head coach, was fired by the university Sunday after sexual assault allegations toward Bobby Davis, a former ball boy for the men’s basketball team, surfaced last week.

Rakeem Christmas, Michael Carter-Williams, and Trevor Cooney have committed to the Syracuse men's basketball team. All three players were ranked in ESPNU's Top 100 prospects, and each will help the Orange in different ways.

In today’s world of college basketball, half the battle is recruiting. Coaches can win games, but players win championships. Coaches spend their summer days in hot, sweaty gyms, looking to find the best talent across the country for that simple reason.

Recruiting is vital in building a program and sustaining its success. This year’s Syracuse University three-man recruiting class though, could not only sustain the always prestigious program, but hopefully, elevate it to a new status.

Marquette hit a go-ahead 3-pointer with less than 30 seconds to play, and the Golden Eagles defeated Syracuse for the second time this year to end SU's season and advance to the NCAA's Sweet-16.

Freshman guard Dion Waiters scored a career-high 18 points, but it wasn’t enough as the Orange were upset by 11-seed Marquette, 66-62, ending Syracuse’s season.

SU was hampered by 18 turnovers and six charging calls on offense. Marquette used heavy pressure to prevent the Orange from running their offense, and Syracuse struggled to find any sort of offensive rhythm.

The loss of sophomore Brandon Triche didn’t help the Orange either. Triche landed flush on his back after going up for a lay-up in the second half and never returned to the game.

Syracuse's superior size out-muscles 14-seed Indiana State Friday in the second round of the NCAA Tournament, setting up a Sunday showdown with Big East foe Marquette.

Since the Syracuse Orange's disappointing loss to the Butler Bulldogs in the third round of the 2010 NCAA Tournament, the Syracuse Orange believe they have to make up for lost time. In fact, “Unfinished Business” has been the team’s mantra for the season to serve as a reminder of the goal at hand: a national championship.

Syracuse is hoping to defeat Connecticut for the second time this season – and preferably in less than six overtime periods – when they take on the Huskies in the Big East tournament semifinals Friday.

Two years ago, Syracuse and UConn played one of the greatest games in NCAA history. The epic six-overtime marathon lasted nearly four hours and carried over into the early hours of the morning. Friday, the Orange will face the Huskies in the Big East tournament once again.

Fab Melo scored a career-high 12 points on 5-of-5 shooting to provide the Orange a lift in their Big East tournament matchup with St. John's.

Twelve points, four rebounds, two blocks. That may not seem like an overly impressive statline, but when your name is Fab Melo, those kinds of numbers are huge. It was that type of play from the much maligned former McDonald’s All-American that helped Syracuse escape St. John’s Thursday in the quarterfinals of the Big East tournament.

Coming off of a strong performance in a blowout of lowly DePaul, Melo’s confidence was high. That certainly paid off for the big Brazilian who played his most meaningful minutes in a meaningful game, and scored a career-high 12 points.
